The tour ends at the Orpheum Theater, two blocks from the starting point.

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.

Jay did a wonderful job bringing haunted Memphis to life! We explored many fascinating and notorious historical sites while getting some fresh air and exercise. Our guide delivered her presentation with humor and enthusiasm. A great way for an inquisitive mind to spend a couple hours.

Jay was a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We enjoyed the stories and our time mixed with a bit of history. She was helpful to point out lots of key local spots for meals and insider tips. She provided bug spray which was necessary! Just be aware it’s a long walking tour without sitting for about 2.5 hours.

Haunted tour???

Memphis is full of history and for this to be called a haunted tour is disappointing... We heard 3 memorable stories in 2 hours.. The rest of the time was a lot of walking and where to eat conversation.. I gave 3 stars for the valuable information on food.
