Created by author Troy Taylor, it won't matter which city you come to to find that there are no "ordinary ghost tours," but history tours that capture the eerie hauntings that have been created by events of the past! Our tours are staffed by authors, historians and real-life ghost hunters with a genuine interest in the supernatural. Join us in any of our cities for tours, dinners, special events and more and we are confident you'll find that we may be often imitated, but we're never equaled!
