Appalachian GhostWalks’ Ghost History and Bigfoot Adventure Tours are family friendly, lantern-led walking and bus tours presented by well-trained guides who recount spine-tingling otherworldly encounters during research conducted over the past twenty-five years. These studies, conducted on location at many haunted and historic sites throughout the mountains of East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, expound upon the mysteries of a tremendous and far reaching mountain heritage from the Native American, Revolutionary, and Civil War eras of our nation’s past.
In 2015, Appalachian GhostWalks was nominated and voted a “USA Today 10Best” for “Best Ghost Tour,” placing number two on that list of national competitors. As of February of 2019, the company was chosen by England’s popular “Lux Life Magazine” as “Best Specialty Historic Tour Operator – Southern Appalachia.” In addition, other awards with local, regional, and national recognition of the tour company, currently celebrating their 15th year in business, can be found on their very informative and encompassing website.
During lantern-led walking tours, experiences unfold in the best of dramatic storytelling tradition, causing even the slam of a car door to make you jump, thrilling tour participants. These stories explain how the findings of qualified and experienced researchers, possessing many legitimate and proven psychic gifts, were verified according to the history of people and past incidents occurring on site. But, not just any history!
Time and time again, the history made known to the researchers was unknown upon the advent of paranormal investigations conducted on-site during productions for their many regionwide tours. The many examples, presented on tour, of history verifying those many mysteries after-the-fact, gives tour participants “the chills” and suggests to those in attendance that there is certainly more to life than meets the eye.
Sixteen different Tennessee and Virginia Ghost and History Tours located here in the heart of the Northeastern Tennessee and Southwest Virginia Mountains include Historic Dandridge, Erwin and Unicoi County Heritage Museum, the East Tennessee State University Campus, Tipton-Haynes State Historic Site, Greeneville, Rogersville, Blountville, Elizabethton, downtown Johnson City’s “Little Chicago GhostWalk”, Gatlinburg, and Jonesborough – once listed on the Travel Channel as one of the top ten most haunted towns in America! Other haunted historic tours presently include the historic districts of Bristol, also known as the “Birthplace of Country Music” and Abingdon, Virginia – the gateway to “America’s First Western Frontier.”
As a first in North America, the “Legendary Cherokee Bigfoot Adventure” is hosted at Bays Mountain Park and Planetarium in Kingsport, Tennessee and this tour is an afternoon hiking adventure set to the beat of Native American flute and drum music, sharing over five-hundred years of Cherokee folklore history and legend. In addition, guests will discover nearly twenty years of unique and startling Bigfoot research findings from exclusive studies performed locally in the mountains of Southern Appalachia.
