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

Pulled by the Dowsing Rods

People are amazed at the way the dowsing rods work, and last night's tour was no exception! As I say on the tours, I can tell you HOW the dowsing rods work, but I can't tell you WHY. Is there really a spirit present that senses one of our guests and specifically calls out to them, using the dowsing rods as a communication tool to pull the guest over to the grave for a personal visit?

For example, a while back we had a man on tour and the dowsing rods kept leading him strongly toward a couple of the head stones in the cemetery...each of the headstones displayed a Freemason symbol of some sort. The man being led was a Mason! He was even wearing his Masonic ring that night!

Last night, a guest on our tour named Kim was walking around Old Baptist Cemetery and the rods kept pulling her to a specific spot on the hill to the west of the walnut tree. (Notice the orb next to her head and near her left elbow, as well!)

What was interesting was that her destination was not a headstone, it was a patch of bare earth...under her feet, she could feel a firmness to the ground, and it was a solid feeling rather than soft earth as found all around this spot. We are pretty sure there is a buried headstone in this location (or maybe simply a grave). As soon as we have a chance we'll check the area out and see if we can find out what was calling out to Kim. She was pulled more than fifty feet to that specific spot...and she tried it more than one time to confirm that this was the intended spot for her to visit!

Also on our tour last night were Chuck and Gail, and they too were pulled to specific areas of the cemetery by the dowsing rods.

Their camera also caught orbs in nearly every photo, and as the one below shows, the phenomenon we talked about last week still holds true...we're still getting photos on every tour that have multiple orbs present in the photo.

Any ideas? Any explanations for the dowsing rod's movement and the orbs being caught on the photos? It truly seems to be "paranormal"!

Join us on tour and see for yourself, it is truly a spine-tingling good time!
