Frequently asked questions
Do you think a ghost tour isn't for you? Wrong! :)Whether you're a believer, a skeptic, or someone in still making up their mind, you'll be entertained by our ghost stories, lore, local shenanigans and so many fun paranormal experiences and historical stories! I have had many guests that told me they didn't believe in ghosts and that their group members really wanted to do the tour more than they did. That is ok! I do not design my tour to prove whether ghosts exist or not. My focus is to tell you the ghost stories and lore experienced by the locals and myself, as well as get you excited about the fascinating history of Traverse City. So, in short, lots of fun history, fun tidbits of fun facts, and of course the spooky hauntings. All presented with a theatrical style by myself and my helper tour guide, Clara. We hope to see you on tour and do let me know if there is a particular aspect that you really would love to hear more about when we meet! ~Desirae
Do I need to make reservations in advance?Walking Tours and Experiences: Yes, reservations are required. We cap our tour guest numbers to ensure small, quality tours. What if I don't have a reservation and the tour is about to start? You can meet us at the starting point, but if no one booked, we do not drive into Traverse City. I would advise that you call ahead. So yes, please, if at all possible, book a reservation. (We will cancel free of charge with a 24-hour advanced notice). If you do not make a reservation and we are operating a tour, please come with exact cash as your tour guide does not carry change.
Does Higher Self Bookstore operate the tours?Nope. No. Nada! Haunted Traverse Tour Company does! Higher Self Bookstore graciously allows Haunted Traverse Tours (that explore downtown Traverse City) to meet its guests here. We hope this makes it easier for guests to find the starting point for our 100% outside walking tours. If you have time, please go on in and visit. This bookstore specializes in paranormal readings and items such as crystals. So, this is a great spot to shop in downtown Traverse City. Please do not ask the staff for instruction about the tours. Since the bookstore does not operate them, they will not have the answers you may have. Please call Haunted Traverse Tours at 231-645-1447 and Desirae will be happy to help!
Do the tours go INSIDE the buildings we visit?The walking tours in Traverse City are 100% outside. I would love to take you inside them, but these are busy operating businesses, hotels, and private residences that are all difficult to access the interior. However, once you know which businesses are haunted and the ghost stories and history attached to the sites, you can patron the businesses during your visit to Traverse City. That will get you an idea of what they look like inside. Please be considerate to the businesses you visit, as again, they are busy servicing visitors to the area.
Is this tour suitable for children?Yes! The tour is geared towards adults, but many people bring their children and tell us that they enjoyed it thoroughly.
Tried to call to book a tour but got a voicemail?Please leave a message and we will get back to you asap. We are out on a tour or away from the phones. The best way to see availability for tours is by clicking the book button to explore the dates we have available. Please feel free to leave a voicemail and we will call you back when we are available. This number is also text enabled.
Does the tour happen rain or shine?Yes, the tour runs in all-weather unless it's deemed dangerous. If we cancel the tour, we will notify tour participants one hour prior to the start of the tour via email and/or text messaging. If Haunted Traverses Tours cancels a tour, participants are given the option to reschedule for a future event or cancel their booking. ***Cancellations by Haunted Traverse Tours will be sent via email or text, 1 hour prior to the start time of the tour. *** Cancellations by guests, please email HauntedTraverse@hotmail.com and let us know in writing that you need to cancel your tour. With more than 24 hours' notice, we will happily refund 100% your tour costs. We do not refund with less than 24 hours' notice but will happily reschedule to another date with availability.
What is your cancellation policy for tours and experiences?*** Cancellations by guests, please email HauntedTraverse@hotmail.com and let us know in writing that you need to cancel your tour. With more than 24 hours' notice, we will happily refund 100% your tour costs. We do not refund with less than 24 hours' notice but will happily reschedule to another date with tour availability. ***Cancellations by Haunted Traverse Tours will be sent via email or text, 1 hour prior to the start time of the tour. Guests will have the option to rebook to the new tour start time of their choice or the new alternative time presented by Haunted Traverse Tours.

If it is meant to be, it is meant to be. And we all want to be able to live to vacation another day! :) Am I right!? Safe Travels and stay adventurous! ~Desirae
How long are the tours and experiences?Each tour has a different length from 1 - 3 hours. Please, look at our home page to see each individual tour's information.
Do children need to be accompanied by an adult?Yes, all participants ages 5 - 13 must be chaperoned by someone age 18 or older. Proof of age may be required. Children under the age 5 must be accompanied by an adult too!
Can I buy tickets over the phone, in person, or with cash?If you need to pay with cash or card in person, please call 231.645.1447 to book your reservation. Online reservations must be made by no later than one hour prior to the start time for that tour. Please call if booking within one hour of the tour starting. 231.645.1447.
Do we have minimums to operate a tour?Please leave a message and we are out on a tour or away from the phones. The best way to see availability for tours is by clicking the book button to explore the dates we have available. Please feel free to leave a voicemail and we will call you back when we are available. This number is also text enabled.
Can we bring cameras or video equipment?But, of course! Some of the best ghost photos have been taken by unwitting photographers intending to shoot other subjects. Ghostly apparitions tend to show up in photos, even when you didn’t see anything while snapping the picture. The only thing we ask is that you share the picture with us if you do get paranormally lucky!
If I am running late for the tour, will you wait for me?We always start the tour on time. If you are running late, please let us know by calling 231-645-1447. If we do leave without you, find us! On that note, please give yourself plenty of time to find parking and get to the tour meeting point 10 minutes prior to the start of the tour to check-in! If you're having dinner at one of our local restaurants, be sure to tell them what time you need to leave by so you, and they, can plan accordingly.
Do we go inside buildings during the tour?No, the Walking Ghost Tours' stories, local lore, and legends are told outside each location.
Is tipping acceptable?Tipping is always acceptable, but not required - it is totally at your discretion. Our guides do their absolutely best to entertain you and all of our guests. Many of our guests appreciate good service and choose to reward it. Ghost Guides are always grateful for your generosity! Now-a-days we know we are a cashless society so here is our helpful Venmo information: @SendDesiraeMoney :) Thank you! We will make sure your gratuity gets to your tour guide! Please leave a review for your guide too! They love to read them.
Can I setup a private tour?Yes, private tours are available. Most groups, however, decide to attend the public tour for two reasons. First, it is less expensive. Second, part of the fun of the tours is interacting with all the other participants. If you are interested in more information on private tours, contact us.
Can I video the tour guide while she is presenting the tour?Well...do you want a good tour or a tour where your guide is self-conscious? I ask that pictures are taken only of the buildings or the guide, but please do not video your tour guide. You will have more fun with the camera tucked away anyway! I founded the tour because of my interest in the paranormal and history of Traverse City. I never aspired to be on TV! I am actually a quiet person and a little on the shy side. When you come on a tour with me, my enthusiasm for my tour topics takes over and I become pretty talkative! Go figure! Plus, I love meeting new people and hearing of their adventures too! If you do take a picture, will you please send the picture to me too? I love to scrapbook on social media my summer as a tour guide, but never get the chance to take pictures of me doing the tours. I can't wait to hear what kind of adventures you are living! I hope to see you soon. ~Desirae
Wait times? Strangers- Are we put in groups with strangers?We do have peak times when are wait times can exceed an hour. To avoid peak times, make plans to attend the first two weekends of the 5 weekends we put on this limited, seasonal haunted trail attraction. Length of queues vary but we try to get our guests through as quickly as possible. HOWEVER....we do not like to sacrifice quality for throughput....so expect long queues that may be up to 90 minutes during peak hours. Campfire stories are available to sit around a fire and listen to during your wait. Are we put in groups with strangers? Short Answer: Yes. ->-> If you are arriving in a small group. e.g. a group of 2 or 4 possibly even 6, we WILL put you in a group with other guests during peak hours. Meaning that you are expected to all walk together through the haunt and not split up. If you split from the group we know, and the scares WILL suffer because of it. We received a nasty review last year of someone who didn't like that we didn't scare them and that they were grouped with strangers so they split off. They didn't get scares because we focused on the rest of the group instead. You have been warned! Stay with your group!! But Ghost Farm of Kingsley, I just want my small party to go through together. Two options for ya! #1: Book a private time. This will cost extra. $54 to make a reservation (reflected as booking 3 entries to the haunt). This is paid at the gate or by calling 23164514447 to make a reservation. #2. Please attend the first weekend when it is our slowest, if you want your small party to go by itself. And of course, we will accommodate this as long as peak lines are not present. We consider peak times to be a waiting time of 30 minutes or more.
