    Hi Wayne and Funtober, thank you so much for including Chattanooga Ghost Tours in your list! I’d note that we now also offer an ultimate hunt using the SLS/XCam previously seen only on Ghost Adventures. We were the first, and to my knowledge are still the only ghost tour in the world to have this awesome piece of equipment. We do our tours nightly, and our hunts on the weekends.

    I’d also like to mention that Nashville Ghost Tours does a great tour, and Backbeat Tours has another tour that, while not haunted, is a ton of fun- their Mojo Tour is a bus tour conducted by musicians, who hand out musical instruments to all the guests who want them- its a hoot!

    Thank you again for kindly including us.
