Market Ghost Tours are 74 minute walking tours in the Pike Place Market. "One of Seattle's best and weirdest tourist attractions" seattle pi



After 14 years of business, the Market Ghost Tour has closed. Thank you for your attendance and support over these years. Mercedes is still available for private hire and you can reach her at


How are your tours different from others in the area? There are no other tours of the Pike Place Market at night. Mercedes, the owner, has worked in various capacities in the Market and knows it inside out. It is her background and passion about the community that directs the tours. As for ghost tours specifically, we are different. We do not impose our own beliefs on our audience. We do not purposely try to scare you or try to prove that ghosts exist. 

Do you go inside haunted locations? The entire Market is the haunted location. The Market is a nine acre district bordered by cobblestone streets. While this is an exterior tour, you will be in the Market the entire time. 

I don’t believe in ghosts, is the ghost tour appropriate for me? Of course, it is a historical tour and a ghost tour. 

Children? Children love the tour however the subject matters can be a little confusing and frightening. Accompanied children eight and under do not need a ticket and are free to attend any tour except private tours. 

Private Tours?  Private tours require contacting us. Private tours can be customized to include additional content, stops, and equipment for ghost hunting. Private tickets cost $30/each with a minimum of six tickets purchased. If you are two people and want to schedule a private tour a minimum purchase of six tickets is still required. 

Tips? You bet, please tip your tour guide. 

Rain or Shine? We have personal umbrellas at Ghost Alley Espresso for use when it is raining. Tours operate in any weather conditions. If it's really pouring down, we keep you covered in the arcades of the Market. 

Can I take pictures on the tours? Yes! The Market at night is very beautiful on its own and worth bringing a camera for. We do not allow video recordings of the tours.

Can you guarantee that I will see a ghost on the ghost tour? This question is based on your own beliefs. Ghosts are not on payroll and do not appear on command. 

Where are you? You can view a map and directions to Ghost Alley Espresso, where all the tours begin, HERE. If you are already familiar with Pike Place Market, the easiest answer is : before the Gum Wall.

Can I bring my dog? Yes! Well behaved dogs are welcome to attend the ghost tour. Our tour guides reserve the right to ask you to leave if your companion is a problem, that goes for humans as well. Dogs are not allowed on private tours. 

Refund policy? There are no refunds. If you have purchased online tickets in advance & you need to change your tour date, time, or name on the tickets you may contact us at least 24 hours before your tour to do so. You can not make changes on the day of your scheduled tour or after your scheduled tour no matter when you purchased the tickets. 

What happened to the Mortuary tours? For several years we were able to access the former Mortuary for tours. The building is currently under construction and we only access it with prior approval & only on private tours. Entry is not guaranteed. It is individually negotiated with the property owners beforehand. 

Why don't you offer tickets through deal sites? As a small business operating in downtown Seattle we do not have the margins to discount our tickets. We proudly pay a living wage to our tour guides as we believe that they are the most important part of the company.
