Comparing Top 10 Ghost Tours Lists: TripAdvisor vs. Haunt Jaunts

I came across this article the other day: “TripAdvisor Scares Up the Top 10 Ghost Tours in the U.S.” I was of course curious to see which ones they ranked in the Top 10.

I was also curious to see how it stacked up against a guest blog I once wrote for the Top 10 Blog: “Top 10 US Towns for Taking a Ghost Tour.” Would any of the tours I listed also make TripAdvisors list? (Even though I listed cities, I also listed tours within the cities.)

Moreover, I’d had a heck of a time picking just the 10 I did, so I decided to do a companion post on my blog. How would the Other 16 Top Towns for taking a ghost tour compare with the TripAdvisor list? Would there be any consensus there?

Here’s the results:

THE TOURS TRIPADVISOR LISTED

Note: I so enjoyed the cute tour nicknames TripAdvisor came up with for each ghost tour that Icopied them along with the tours. (The nicknames precede the actual tour names.)

1. Hair-Raising Harpers: Ghost Tours of Harpers Ferry, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

2. I Ski Dead People: Park City Ghost Tours, Park City, Utah

3. A Risky Ride: Hearse Ghost Tours, Savannah, Georgia

4. Macabre Market: Market Ghost Tour, Seattle, Washington

5. Quick and the Dead: Tombstone Ghost Tour, Tombstone, Arizona

6. Spooky Surprise: Providence Ghost Tour, Providence, Rhode Island

7. Seeking the Supernatural: Old Bisbee Ghost Tours, Bisbee, Arizona

8. The Big Spooky: New Orleans Ghost Tour, New Orleans, Louisiana

9. Horrifying History: Chattanooga Ghost Tours, Chattanooga, Tennessee

10. Smoking Specters: The Original Ghost Tours of Catalina, Catalina Island, California

THE TOP 10 TOWNS HAUNT JAUNTS LISTED

  1. Bisbee and Tombstone (counted them together because they’re not that far from each other)
  2. Charleston
  3. Dallas/FT. Worth
  4. Gettysburg
  5. New Orleans
  6. San Antonio
  7. San Diego
  8. Savannah
  9. Seattle
  10. St. Augstine

GHOST TOUR TOWNS IN COMMON

Here’s the five towns we both had in common:

  1. Savannah
  2. Seattle
  3. Tombstone
  4. Bisbee
  5. New Orleans

Within the cities Haunt Jaunts listed for each town were the same ghost tours TripAdvisor recommended.

HOW THE OTHER 16 STACKED UP AGAINST TRIPADVISOR’S OTHER FIVE

There wasn’t a single city on Haunt Jaunts “other 16” list that was on TripAdvisors.

I don’t know what it all means except for one thing: there are a lot of ghost tours out there. Some are better than others, but wherever you’re traveling you should be able to find one or two (or more!) to enjoy.
