Alaska Ghost Tours

There are two Alaska ghost tours.  One operates out of Anchorage and the other escorts cruise passengers around Skagway. Here is the information about the ghost tours in Alaska that I have discovered:

Ghost Tours of Anchorage - Anchorage, AK
Tours happen Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30 PM (no tours on Monday night). No reservations are necessary. The tour starts in front of Snow City Cafe at 4th and L Streets in Anchorage. Locations may include such places as the Anchor Pub & Club, formerly the Empress Theater, and the Historic Anchorage Hotel. Tickets are $15. This is a wheelchair friendly 90 minute walking tour. Please, no young children. Tour happens rain or shine. The tours end in early September for the year. Questions? Check out their website or call (907) 27G-HOST. Note: Anchorage can get chilly in the evening so please dress appropriately. Your guide will be Rick Goodfellow, a dapper man in a top hat, tails, and Hemmingway beard. He is described by as the general manager of a classical music radio station by day and artful storyteller by night.

Ghosts and Goodtime Girls Walking Tour - Skagway, AK
This Skagway Alaska ghost tour popular with cruise ship patrons will visit several cribs and districts, culminating with a stop at the restored Brothel Museum, located above the Red Onion Saloon. Join a champagne toast and explore the halls and bedrooms of this celebrated brothel. If you are lucky, you might even see Lydia, the resident ghost. Recommended age to participate is 14 years old. A parent or legal guardian must accompany participants under the age of 21 years old. The Red Onion is located on the corner of 2nd & Broadway. Built in 1897, the Red Onion Saloon operated as one the finest bordellos in Skagway until times changed. Since this is Alaska, there are no tours in October.
