Departure Point

Alfred's On Beale, 197 Beale St, Memphis, TN 38103, USA
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.

Nice tour

It wasn't really just a ghost tour it was a history tour also. They should have taken us back on the $1 trolly at the end to the start? If they don't offer it they should tell you that you can it is only a dollar. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative.

Nice tour but it should be called the Haunted and History walking tour. I would have liked them to give me the option of taking the trolly back to Beale Street for a dollar or just include it in the tour would have been nice, A very knowledgeable tour guide.

Haunted History has a nice ring to it! Thanks for your review and for the suggestions. As far as the trolley ride back to Beale goes, thank you for bringing that to our attention! The trolleys were on a very reduced schedule due to COVID-19 and have just resumed service at regular hours!

Although the guide was super sweet, it was a boring walk around town. The storytelling was weak and drab, a lot if walking in silence and very little excitement. We didn’t go to Earnestine and Hazels. We thought it odd that we had a man escorting our tour guide for safety but then we were left at the end of town In a dark area to walk back alone. I was glad I was not alone.

Sorry to hear you had a disappointing time, Ren. Thanks for your comments. First, please note that Earnestine & Hazel’s is closed due to the pandemic. As far as the ending goes, the tour ends on the corner of Beale and Main Streets, just two blocks from Alfred’s (the starting location) and hardly the edge of town. But I’ll definitely refresh our guides on giving a detailed orientation to everyone before departing so everyone knows where they are and where they’re going. Thanks.

The tour guide Jay was fantastic. My problem with the tour were the constant interruptions. No ones fault but it took away from the experience. We also had alot of drunk people smoking on our tour.

Hi Melanie! We are so sorry to hear that your experience was less than stellar. We certainly understand that interruptions can take away the fun of a night out. We hope you will come back and see us and give us another chance in the future--you might even have Jay as your guide again (we agree, she's pretty great!)

Totally recommend this! The walking tour was fun and informative but the tour guide was the best part. She was friendly, funny and knew her history. The tour was under 2 hours and wasn’t a long walk at all but it was packed with lots of stops and stories. For the money, it was a great date night.

The tour was a lot of fun, provided a little Memphis history along with the ghost stories. Plenty of stops along the way made the walking easy and the time flew by.

It was our 1st trip to Memphis and we really enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledable. Unfortunately with COVID 19, she had to wear a face shield. This made hearing her a little harder.

We had the benefit of being the only guests, so we were treated to an intimate experience with a guide who was able to direct her full attention to us. Each of the stops was enjoyable and informative, and we were grateful to have it as part of our visit to Memphis.
