Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depending on which departure time you select, your nighttime tour will start at 7pm or 9pm sharp, but you’ll want to check in a half-hour before it begins at the lobby of the Holiday Inn's Smokey Mountain Resort in Gatlinburg. From there, you’ll take a stroll down some of the spookiest streets in Gatlinburg.

On this 1-mile walking tour, learn the haunted history behind every ghostly stop of the journey from your guide. Get to know a few of the ghosts by name, and follow the same path some of them walked before they became ghosts. Take a peek at photographs other visitors snapped of sinister occurrences (such as floating orbs and apparitions) they couldn’t explain, and decide for yourself what to believe.

At the end of your tour, you’ll get a chance to track down spirits with actual ghost-hunting equipment. Not to mention, there’s always the possibility of communicating with some spirits, too.

We enjoyed hearing the local stories and Sarah was quite good. She is knowledgeable and fun to listen to. I did read the other reviews and found some to be unfair, perhaps. I’m not a ghost hunter type, so have nothing to compare it to. Anyway, we enjoyed it.

Not worth the $ , very lame , the tour guide was very nice but we literally just took a walk and was shone pictures on her iPad

Actually thats not what you did. Folks have you been on a ghost walk anywhere before? what were your expectations? You were taken to a number of haunted locations for two hours, you were told the history, the folklore and the history of what happened there, you were shown pics that we have gotten previously and told how to take pics yourself and you got to use ghost hunting equipment. It is impossible for any ghost tour in the world to march out ghost like its the haunted mansion at Disneyland. Those who try to actually take pictures often get pics of activity.

This was a real waste of money! The guide brought her soon to be mother-in law claiming that she was training her. They drove a junky car where we met, to start the tour. She said if we chased any bears that she would yell at us like we were kids! Before the tour started we wasted fifteen minutes for her to give us stupid ghost toys that were probably programmed to go off at certain areas of the tour, again treating us like children! The few stories she told us was on the lame side very boring! Dont waste your money on this tour and two hours of your life!

I am sorry you felt this way. Normally we meet in the lobby of the smoky mountain resort but due to covid-19 restrictions we are not allowed to, so like 95% of all ghost walk tours in the world we must meet on the street or in our case, in a parking lot. As a matter of fact she is training someone currently and whether this person is her future mother in law is frankly irrelevant. The guide in question does not have a brand new car you are correct (unfortunatly, not all of us can afford a new car) but it is not falling apart and what the personal car she drives is honestly her business and what you drive is yours. As for her comments about the bears, we do give a safety chat about bears as some people don't realize they are still wild animals and while they will ignore you if you don't bother them, they are not stuffed animals to try to hug. (unfortunately some have tried!) I am sorry you feel that treats you as children. While I was not there I did speak with the guide and she did tell me that when she talked about the bears that you could have interpreted her tone of voice as "lecturing" I have spoken with her about it and hopefully she will do better next time. I do apologize to you if you felt the way she spoke was inapropriate. As for wasting your time with "kids" toys. These "toys" are the same used on TV by all the ghost hunting shows. None are cheap and some of them are quite expensive. We cannot "set them to go off at various places on the tour" I am not sure why you feel the need to accuse without any facts whatsoever. If you didn't want to use them you did not need to and the time taken in passing them out did not take away from your time on the tour. I am not sure how letting people use ghost hunting equipment (which is very popular by the way) constitutes treating our guests like children. As for your opinion that the stories we tell are lame and boring we have hundreds of 5 star reviews and have earned 4 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence awards in a row with full expectation of a 5th when they announce the awards anytime now. So, while you certainly have a right to your opinion, the vast vast majority of people have a great time and enjoy the stories and the equipment.

The tour guides are nice but the content is not very good. Unfortunately, this tour is not scary, exciting, or even very interesting. You will walk to about 8 different locations and stand in each location for about 10-15 minutes and see 1-3 pictures in each location. You will be told a story about how a person died at each location and how people think a ghost might still be there. You will NOT enter these locations or get very close to them. I could have dealt with just standing outside the whole time, but the main disappointment for me was how there is basically no basis to classify these locations as haunted. It's just that someone died in a building and therefore it's haunted now. The pictures shown were interesting, however, and I did enjoy them since they were the only interesting or scary part of the tour.

This was a fantastic tour. There were nine people on the tour including our guide. We met at the Holiday Inn Smokey Mountain Resort and headed out at 9pm. The total walk was just under a mile but the history of the area was fantastic. If you are afraid of things like this I would not recommend taking the tour. Our guide had actual pictures on his ipad taken by previous guests. There was some scary stuff on those pics. There is also a free additional option to allow you to ghost hunt in the cemetery with actual ghost hunter equipment. That takes place prior to the actual tour. Check it out!
