Day of the Dead True Crime & Ghost Tour
10/27/12 Note – Thank you for your interest in public tours offered by Hometown History Tours. While I so looked forward to the fall season to launch 2 new true crime/ghost tours (Notorious 3.1.3 & Day of the Dead Downriver Bus Tour) as well as re-offer a new & improved Midtown Unmasked (formerly Midtown Macabre) tour, an unexpected breast cancer diagnosis in mid-September threw me off kilter & I was not able to properly focus on marketing and promotion. Therefore, I’m canceling these tours so that I can focus on my treatment. (I’m so lucky. A host of tests have shown cancer has not spread).
One good thing out of all of this, we are now well prepared for next year’s tour season! Hometown History Tours will return in early April with an exciting tour line up for the entire 2013 season!
Although we are finished for the season with public tours, we can provide step-on guides for your private tours! Call 734.642.5712 for rates/services.
All the best,
Karin Risko, Hometown History Tours founder
Bus departs promptly from 150 Maple, Wyandotte.
Celebrate the Day of the Dead with Hometown History Tours as we board the Haunted Express and tour the dark side of Downriver. We’ll expose true stories of murder, mayhem, and evil ripped straight from the headlines of the past and not so distant past, including: murder in a sundown town, the deadly Detroit River, the long arm of the mob, and more!
We’ll also venture into another realm as we visit sights known for their unusual activity. We’ll stop for a drink (beverage not included) at a 19th century former hotel/stagecoach stop – one of the most haunted places in southeast Michigan, and travel down a desolate, wooded lane where numerous otherworldly sightings have occurred. We’ll even stand before the “haunted” penthouse where Zak Bagans, author of Dark World and Travel Channel host of Ghost Adventures launched his career.
Tour price includes a glass of beer, wine, or pop prior to departure and appetizers at an eerie pub midway through tour.
