The Market Ghost Tour is a 75 minute exterior adventure through the Pike Place Market. It is offered throughout the year. The skeptic and believer can enjoy this tour because it is rooted in history. Each ghost story has been thoroughly researched. Mercedes, the owner, has spent countless hours combing through fire insurance maps, leases, health department records and newspaper articles in order to substantiate the stories she has heard. She has written a book about the tours and the ghost stories, Seattle's Market Ghost Stories, which is available in our online shopThe tour guides also research the stories. They hear daily from people within the Market about odd occurences in the old buildings. Tour guides are trained in storytelling, improv & paranormal research.

What better way to learn Seattle’s history than walking through Pike Market weaving history with tales of ghosts & hauntings. Make sure your camera is fully charged, and take lots of photos. My friends are still talking about how much they learned. Stories from store owners, Kells Irish pub, Princess Angelina, and a law that prohibited flower pots above the street level. The Market Ghost Tour is something that shouldn’t be missed. I took friends here for my birthday and they are still talking about it!

We had a wonderful tour with Jim, he kept us mesmerized and even a bit scared. Some of the girls were literally knock down by his stories. Thank you for allowing us to experience this.
