Departure Point

197 Beale St, Memphis, TN 38103, USA
This Memphis ghost walking tour begins on Beale Street, one of the most iconic streets in America. Beyond this 2-mile stretch of blues clubs and restaurants, however, lies a darker history of vice, voodoo, phantoms, ghosts and lost souls. Hear the tales of an eerie past while visiting some of Memphis' oldest sites.

Follow the expert storyteller guide through the town to discover Memphis in a completely different way than the regular tours—in search of its haunted places where a lesser-known history is uncovered. 

See the Orpheum Theatre, one of the few remaining movie palaces of the 1920s and home of a ghost named Mary, who has haunted performances here since 1921; the John Alexander Austin House, a Victorian-era mansion said to be haunted by two lovers; the Gayoso House apartment building; and the location of Memphis' haunted piano.

Finally, receive a tour of the notorious Ernestine and Hazel's, well known as one of the most haunted buildings in Memphis. Take a look around this former brothel turned bar, which is home to several ghosts—and a haunted jukebox.

Not super scary stories, but a nice way to see downtown Memphis. Could have been cut by 10-15 minutes.

Will was a FANTASTIC tour guide, very knowledgeable and you could tell he loves what he does. The stops were great, the walk wasn't too hard, but the walking speed was very fast but at least I got a workout. Loved the tour!

Daniel was a very knowledgeable guide and made the tour informational and most importantly fun!! The rain started coming down just before the tour, but that didn’t stop us from having fun👻 ( The rain stopped about 15 minutes into the tour) We learned so much about Memphis history and enjoyed learning about the beautiful buildings and the ghosts that haunt them. If you are in Memphis book your spot and be ready for the goosebumps and chills that await!!!!

Our tour guide, Daniel, let us tour even though it started pouring rain at the start of our tour, which was awesome and added to the spookiness of the tour. He was very personable and knowledgeable about every story on the tour and even history of several places that weren’t on his list to tell us. It was an amazing experience and I’d love to be able to do it again when Ernestein and Hazel’s is open to meet some ghosts and a haunted juke box!

Unable to attend but the guide was courteous enough to call us before they left for the tour

We were unable to attend due to being stuck in the Arkansas storms. We drove in from Texas & the weather did not cooperate but the tour guide called us to see if we were coming. I am planning on booking again later in the week but because she was so courteous to call I’m giving them 5 stars! She was enthusiastic about the ghost hunt & I definitely think we will enjoy it!
