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.

I was surprised because many of the reviews were very positive but honestly it was just a walk around town

The guy was nice, he was young. But the tour was not hands-on and very boring in our opinion. I’ve been on many other ghost tours we actually got to go in buildings rather than just walk by stop and talk about it. I was surprised because many of the reviews were very positive but honestly it was just a walk around town

It was less than I expected and I feel I paid for a group walking class. There is a ton of brisk walking and very little ghost talk but a lot of history talk so maybe it a hold be reamed.
