|During our production investigations for our Dandridge GhostWalk, many unusual experiences were documented in several buildings throughout the historic district of the town. During this walking tour, our guests will hear the details of many of these experiences, several of which were firsts in our indepth research and studies of the afterlife. Join us for an incredible walk through history and enjoy the recount of our findings in Tennessee's officially second oldest town. Dandridge was a headwaters port along a river that was turned into a lake by the Tennessee Valley Authority, or TVA. A dike was built to keep the town of Dandridge from flooding and the lake provides a wonderful source of recreation for visitors and local residents alike. Make Dandridge a part of your next visit to the Smoky Mountains for a SPOOK-tacular good time!!!||
These folks are excellent storytellers with a great combination of history and ghost stories. We received "AAA" treatment with personalized pickup/dropoff locations. Very convenient as we had no transportation. We took our tour in Dandridge and "kudos" to the guide for a great job! Very professional and we'll definitely do some of your other tours when back in area. We were VERY IMPRESSED - well worth the value, plus LOVE that you donate a portion to St Jude's!- Linda and the Dellinger Family
We were visiting from Minnesota and signed up for the Jonesborough GhostWalk! It was worth every penny. We had teens, children, seniors and a toddler along in our group and everyone was totally engaged in listening to the history and ghost stories our tour guide Michael treated us to. We enjoyed it so much we went back to Jonesborough the next day to see everything in the daylight! We would definitely take another tour the next time we are in TN to visit family and would even request Michael as our tour guide a second time. Thanks for a wonderfully spooky and enchanted evening on a Tennessee October night! - Stephanie Cline
Y'all were awesome! I really enjoyed it. Thanks for such a wonderful experience! - Meghan Vannoy

We really had a good time (on the Gatlinburg GhostWalk) and learned alot about the history of Gatlinburg and also about the more positive side of ghosts in general.
