We Couldn't Say It Better Ourselves!

A review by GradyShark from Houston, Texas who was recently on the Haunted Hannibal Ghost Tour:

"The tour guide took us around Hannibal and told us some fascinating real life stories and reported ghost encounters, while teaching us a great deal about the history of the town. The highlight of the tour was visiting the graveyard. My younger cousins, who tagged along, enjoyed "talking" to spirits using dowsing rods. You don't have to believe in ghosts or the paranormal to have fun on this tour." Visited July 2016

within 24 hours of the tour including those reservations made the day-of the tour.

For tours of 14 passengers or less we will use our small, climate-controlled bus. For tours with more than 14 passengers we may rent the Hannibal Trolley but we never guarantee that our tour will be a “Trolley” tour

Still photography is allowed, but video/audio recording of our tour is not permitted.

Generally speaking, we do not cancel a tour because of light rain or the threat of inclement weather.

We will cancel a tour if there is the possibility of lightning or excessive precipitation.

Thank you for your cooperation, we look forward to entertaining you!

Footsteps in the Cemetery

We had a really fun tour last Sunday night with the McVays and the Hart Family! It was pretty dark by the time we arrived at Old Baptist Cemetery, and I think the guests on our tour were a little skeptical about the dowsing rods being able to sense "paranormal activity"...that is, until Mr. McVay started to have a strong response on his dowsing rods from a headstone close to the tree on the west side of the cemetery. According to the headstone, the deceased is Hezekiah King who died in 1932. His headstone displays the three chain links of the Oddfellows (a fraternal group that was similar to the Freemasons) and a VERY unusual triangle with the skull and bones logo.

Mr. McVay called us all over, and the Hart family's dowsing rods were also sensing activities. Mr. McVay had a camera with him and I asked him to take a photo because sometimes when the dowsing rods sense energy you can capture it on film.

When we returned back to our store on Main Street, Mr. McVay gave me his SD card to put into my laptop so that we could examine the photos more carefully -- and that's when we saw these two photos...the first one clearly shows what appear to be two feet standing right in front of the grave, but in the second photo the feet are gone! Folks, I promise you that these photos were taken separately within seconds of each other and that no retouching was done to them...this is exactly the way they were taken:

What I find interesting about this is that we've had three different tours within the last two weeks where we could SWEAR we heard footsteps in the cemetery! We tried to discredit them by thinking they were a possum or something else rustling through the leaves, but frankly, I could hear the steps distinctly and they sounded like they were slow and far-apart, not the scurrying footsteps of an animal.

Did we capture evidence to prove there is something walking through Old Baptist and "greeting" us during our tours????

You be the judge...

Mysterious Happenings at the Old Catholic Church

Last week we had Jennifer and her family from Wisconsin on our Haunted Hannibal tour. She just emailed me this photo and description via Facebook:

"Hi,I was going to call you about this, but we were so busy this week there just wasn't anytime. So last Saturday after we went to dinner we decided to stop by that old church that was on the tour to see if we could hear the choir singing. My daughter and I got out of the car and I went up to the door and put my ear to it. I heard a loud thump and the door kinda shook, but I don't think it was anything paranormal - maybe just the bowlers [there's a bowling alley attached to the south side of the church].

"Then my sister came out to take a picture of us in front of the church. Caitlin and I sat on the steps and she had her dowsing rods in her hands. My sister took 3 pictures. The first two with her camera turned out fine and the rods are pointing forward. When she took the last picture she freaked out because she said something was on the picture. Then from nowhere a cat starts yowling really creepy. I figured she was just trying to scare me, and I wanted a picture of me with my ear to the door. But there were definitely thumps and the door was moving (still- probably the wind).

"When I looked at the picture on my camera there is a huge black shadow over the right side of the picture that you can actually see through and if you look at Caitlin the dowsing rods are pointing directly at the shadow!!!! Totally creepy!! ...Until someone can explain the creepy shadow I not quite as skeptical anymore!!!"

One thing I find interesting about this photo is that the shadow IS see-through...so if it were the camera strap or a finger covering part of the camera lens, you wouldn't be able to see through the shadow...and above the shadow, next to Caitlin, is an orb!

Happy Hauntings, Jennifer, and thanks for bringing your family on the tour and sharing the info with us!
