Appalachian GhostWalks' located in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains and Southwest Virginia Highlands offers sixteen different Ghost History and Bigfoot Adventures with both day and evening vacation packages. Recently voted one of the best ghost tours in America by USA Today's 10Best, holding the #2 spot in the Nation, visitors will thrill to our lantern-led haunted and historic walking tours presented by professionally Certified Ghost Hunters who recount true "spine-tingling" stories of real history and real ghosts. Our full-day "Mountain Mysteries" Adventure Packages offer a chance to visit the interiors of mansions, museums, historic sites, and caves throughout our region. Everyone is invited to come and bring the whole family, or group on a haunted history adventure in what the Cherokee call "Shaconage" - the sacred land of blue smoke! All offerings are located in the heart of the Northeastern Tennessee and Southwest Virginia Mountains to include towns featuring buildings that pre-date the civil war in Historic Dandridge, Erwin, Elizabethton, Johnson City, Greeneville, Rogersville, Blountville, Gatlinburg, and Jonesborough - once listed on the Travel Channel as one of the top ten most haunted towns in America! Our Haunted and historic Virginia tours presently include the historic districts of Bristol, also known as the "Birthplace of Country Music" and Abingdon, Virginia - a gateway town to this area rich in heritage and history and designated by Congress "America's First Western Frontier". Our history, in towns listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is endorsed by local historians, historical societies, and local heritage alliance partners. In addition, for our avid paranormal enthusiasts who love to delve deeper into the mysteries of our mountains, we offer several North American firsts to include the "Legendary Cherokee Bigfoot Adventure Tour" and the "Appalachian UFO Close Encounters Adventure Tour" - and Roswell, New Mexico doesn't hold a candle to the stories, experiences, and general "goings-on" we have here in these mountains! Also, so sorry, but we do not offer vampire or zombie tours. We hope to see your family, friends, or tour group soon for a simply SPOOK-tacular good time!!!

First off, in today's world of technology, shame on you if you do not do your own research on any attraction be it entertainment or food or whatever. Stacey is not trying to hid anything from anyone who books his tours nor is he trying to mislead you or dissappoint anyone. Secondly, a lot of what people have written here... More

I loved the Gatlinburg Ghost Walk. It was very informative on the culture of Gatlinburg and I enjoyed listening to the tales of the past. Walking the streets of Gatlinburg at night with a lantern was very cool and my kids loved it! Loved all the photos that were taken and I highly recommend this when in the Gatlinburg area!

Did a full day package with these guys and it was awesome. We did the Bigfoot tour and Jonesborough later that evening and I didn't believe in Bigfoot before hand, but after the tour, it got me to thinking and makes me not want to go into the woods alone. The ghost tour that evening was very interesting from a... More

First the “guide” was late. Then we spent an hour standing in front of a store getting lectured about God, the bible, and the rapture. Then after an hour we started the “tour” which consisted of walking 100 feet to a creek and taking pictures of orbs. Then more lecturing about ghosts the “guide” found at the creek. Nothing of...

I was told this would be a 3 hour tour, but the first hour was spent at by the visitors center while the guide talked about scripture and his background, his own religious beliefs, and his dousing class. I was bored and irritated. When we finally did get moving, we only covered about 6 blocks in 2 hours! The description... More
