Q - Are all tours outdoors?
A - Yes, all of our tours occur 100% outside. Please dress for the weather on the date of your tour and wear comfortable walking shoes.
\Q - Can we investigate inside?
A - Sadly, the majority of the properties that we visit are private property and the owners do not want us to go inside. There are a couple of stops during our tours on public property where you can look around.
Q - What is the difference between a Haunted History tour and Extreme Hunt?
A - Our Ghost or Haunted History tours are about the stories and history of the downtown area. The Extreme Hunts are all about the experience. An Extreme Hunt will give you the best chance to have a paranormal experience. For that reason, they may not be for everyone. Please check with your parties before booking Extreme Hunts.
Q - Why does it say that no recording is allowed on some of your tours? What if I want to go back and remember?
A - This may seem like it's not that big of a deal but our members have over 300 hours of research into the history that we have found. While the information is out there for all to find we put in the time and effort to do so. If we allow that information to get out that will ruin our product. It also opens up others to start tours on our hard work. We hope you understand why we ask. We will never sue you and we have never told anyone that. If we catch you recording we will usually just ask you to delete it. If you refuse we will politely ask you to leave.
Q - Can I drink while on tours or come after drinking?
A - No. It's not that we don't want you to enjoy yourselves. We really want you to! The City of Jefferson has not only open container laws but also Drunk in Public laws. By allowing those to be broken unchecked we risk losing our business license. If you feel like you would rather go into one of our fine libation establishments for a drink you will not be allowed to rejoin the tour. Enjoy the rest of your night and please drive safe.
Q - Do you really donate to charity?
A - Yes! We donate $1 from all tours to the Historic City of Jefferson Association a non-profit. We also donate $1 from all tickets to a rotating charity. The charity of choice is changed each month and all local non-profits are encouraged to request our fundraising efforts! Our only requirement is the possession of 501(c)3 status or something similar.
Q - Where should we park?
A - We meet just South of the Missouri Capitol on West High Street. There is public parking on West High Street, on Capitol Avenue (around the Capitol itself), and throughout downtown Jefferson City. There is a parking garage that is free during our operation hours on Madison Ave which is a flat walk from the start of our tours. If you elect to park in the garage please give yourself enough time to walk to the start of the tour. We do end near the parking garage and encourage you to park there.
Q - What if I am late?
A - Due to demand and customer feedback, we start our tours at exactly the times listed. If you are late you are more than welcome to catch up with our group. Unless it is an Extreme Tour we are on High Street, Madison St, or Capital Ave.
Q - I can't go or I have changed my mind can I get a refund?
A - Due to industry standards and the fees associated with refunds, we are unable to offer them all of the time. If you are unable to make your tour you are not only allowed, but encouraged to sell or transfer your tickets to anyone you wish.
Q - Can I bring a friend who hasn't paid?
A - No. When we start the tour anyone who has not paid for a ticket is asked to keep 150 feet of distance from our tour. Anyone who breaks this is asked to leave. If it continues the Jefferson City Police Department may become involved.
Q - Am I safe?
A - The overall answer to this question is yes. Downtown Jefferson City, MO is one of the safest areas in the state. We enjoy not only the Jefferson City Police Department HQ but the Cole County Sheriffs' Department HQ as well. Part of our tour actually occurs on the Sheriff's Department property. With that being said if you feel the need to exercise your Second Amendment Rights we will completely support you in that decision.
Q - Are kids allowed on your ghost and extreme tours?
A - Yes kids are allowed on our tours. However, we do note that there are several instances that involve young children and some of our stories are beyond gruesome. We do not allow anyone 17 or under on the tour without a supervising adult for insurance purposes. Please note that sometimes vulgar or derogatory language is used as part of the tour.
Q - Are you affiliated with or a part of the MSP Tours?
A - We are NOT affiliated or linked to the official Missouri State Penitentiary Tours. We do not offer tours of the prison or speak of its history itself. Please visit missouripentours.com if you wish to take their amazing tour! We highly recommend these tours and look forward to more investigations there ourselves.
Q - Is tipping allowed?
A - Yes. while of course not required, if you have enjoyed your tour or hunt, your guides greatly appreciate your gratuity.
Q - What happens if it rains or snows?
A - We do our tours rain or shine, as long as conditions are not dangerous. We cannot do hunts in heavy rain. If we have to cancel a tour or hunt, we will give you the option to reschedule or a full refund. Please visit Jeff City's Most Haunted on Facebook for all day of tour announcements.
Q - Am I allowed to smoke?
A - Yes, you can smoke. HOWEVER, we ask that you keep at least 75-100 feet from others in your group. This isn't just a courtesy request. Some of our best evidence is smoke or fog in areas where there shouldn't be any.
Q - How scary is the tour?
A - We do not have any actors that are going to jump our and scare you. We talk about real documented occurrences.
Q - So your stories are true?
A - Yes! All of the information we present as facts have been verified by several different sources including police reports, historical newspaper archives, first-hand accounts, and other sources. We will also tell you when stories are first-hand accounts or not fully verified. Of course, our local ghost stories and accounts are first-person accounts by those who witnessed them.
