Join us, if you dare!

On this Notorious 313 True Crime & Ghost Tour incarnation, we leave the safe confines of Downtown Detroit behind and traverse a tragic trail via comfy motorcoach throughout the D where we’ll unmask macabre tales of murder, mayhem, mystery, and mysticism. History has never been so haunting!

A few of the terrifying true crime tales we’ll reveal are:

  • Hippie Homocide
  • Killed for kissing white girls
  • Dismembered doctor
  • Robin Hood or cold-blooded cop killers
  • Murderous mob rule
  • Mystic massacre
  • Damned and deadly hotel
  • Cookie killer

Plus, many more spellbinding stories of true crimes, haunted legends & lore, macabre and evil doings will be told.

  • We’ll also visit a haunted bar where you can enjoy a cocktail (not included in tour price) while hearing about the entity that haunts the place, a cemetery where some notorious criminals are buried and the former funeral home where famed illusionist and spiritualist Harry Houdini lay in state before his body was transported to New York.
  • Several of the locations where these featured true crimes took place are believed to be haunted. Download your FREE smartphone ghost detector app (Ghost Radar) and find out for yourself!

Be forewarned: popular haunted houses and ghost tours, with their manufactured fright, are great fun and entertainment. They pale in comparison, however, to these terrifying true crime stories wretched from the headlines of Detroit’s past. It’s these vile and ghastly stories of brutality committed by real people – not ghosts and goblins – that will come to haunt your every thought and plague your dreams.

Disclaimer: Tour probably not appropriate for young children or the faint of heart! In the end, it’s your call.
