Since 2010, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours has been spooking customers during investigation-based ghost tours. These tours have been features in SyFy Channels "Ghost Hunters" magazine recognizing the extent of Knoxville's Historical and Haunting past. Deemed the "Hidden Gem of Haunted America", these excursions are personally led by owner J. Adam Smith, who has been featured as an expert on Paranormal Paparazzi and has investigated paranormal activity for over a decade, taking tour-goers on educational, researched journeys to local haunts on public or private tours that, depending on the tour, traverse graveyards, Gay Street Bridge, and an old Confederate jail. Participants may reach out and connect with the spirits who committed a three-way homicide or the ghosts of hanged men at the actual locations of paranormal activity. These tours take guests on investigations with trained paranormal professionals to locations known for their traumatic histories. Another reason HKGT have been receiving the Nations attention is due to the fact participants are given real professional paranormal investigation tools to help encourage paranormal evidence and encourage team building. Why join a regular old tour when you can go on an ADVENTURE? Let Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours be your destination for your next... Late Night Adventure...

My husband and I joined another couple downtown for dinner and wanted to do something different afterward. You know, dinner and a movie or concert gets kind of old. We had a small group of about 10 people and our guide, J. Adam Smith, was...More

We've been on many tours & theres no comparison. J-Adam Smith teaches u how & gets you involved hands on with real equipment. The Historical knowledge J shares will never let you see Knoxville the same again.

I am skeptical of supernatural activity. Jay was very very informative. He was very good in his explanation of the equipment that we used. His three "ground zero" locales to use our equipment were easy walking distance and historically significant to knoxville's history. The cemetery...More

I would say 1 to 1.25 miles with stops along the way... The stops include the hands-on investigation part of the tour where participants can sit.
