Hauntings with Hawk | Trolley Tour

September 29 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Many find Rochester a bit strange during the day; but after the sun goes down, the restless souls of the city’s frightful past begin to stir.

You will hear tales that have been all but forgotten as you travel to eerie graveyards and past some of the most historic — and haunted — buildings in our famed city, along with houses that hold on to the secrets of their former inhabitants.

Experience how ruthless gangsters, tornadoes and floods, and gruesome murders — stories both tragic and chilling — have left their indelible marks on Rochester’s spirit world, past and present.

Is Rochester one of the most under-known haunted cities in the Midwest? The jury’s still out on that … but this tour lets you judge for yourself!

Join Dr. Hawk Horvath aboard our trolley for an evening ride through Rochester’s darker sides. The Hauntings with Hawk tour offers guests an evening adventure exploring the city’s strange and macabre past — with tales of grave-robbing, unsolved murder, mystery and mayhem as you travel past or visit many of the city’s most haunted, most tragic, and sacred sites.

This tour lasts approximately 3 hours as there are many great haunted sites in Rochester, and we want to include all the best stories, along with the live paranormal investigator Dr. Hawk Horvath!

Living Ghosting-Hunting Demonstration

As a bonus, our Ghost Host Dr. Hawk Horvath, Rochester’s lead paranormal investigator, will demonstrate ghost-hunting equipment and techniques.

You’ll hear some great firsthand ghost-hunting accounts, and maybe, just maybe … experience a portal, feel the energy or a hear voice, from the other side….
