“St. Louis is the fourth-most-haunted city in America,” David Riordan, your tour guide said on a tour covered by Narratively. David is a renaissance man who's been a commodities trader, lawyer, and Spanish real-estate seller, and now-owner of St. Louis Haunted History Tours. It was his time in Spain that inspired him to become a tour guide. He practiced his storytelling on the English-language radio station he bought and then began leading homespun tours through the small, picturesque town of Frigiliana.
But when the Spanish economy soured, he moved back to his native St. Louis. Now he draws on his natural talent for storytelling and leads groups to tourist attractions and haunted corners of the 250-year-old metropolis. Along the ghost tour, David unravels chilling yarns about events that inspired The Exorcist, the St. Louis Fire, the cholera epidemic, and spirits that still roam the streets, asking people which bus they should catch to get to the afterlife. The less spooky city tours explore the UNESCO World Heritage site Cahokia Mounds, as well as Forest Park and the Cathedral Basilica.
David also puts his storytelling skills to use at his History & Hauntings of St Louis shows. Accompanied by a folk guitarist, he regales crowds with tales of the city's history. "St. Louis is full of great stories, and I love to educate and entertain people," he told the Riverfront Times. "It's not just ghosts and spirits, [it's] the brewery, steamboats, gangsters."

“If you like history, this is an interesting, fun tour. It is all walking and standing outside, so use common sense and wear good walking shoes. Since the tour meets at Morgan Street Brewery, we wish we would have had time to eat before the tour. However, my husband and I were able to take a "to-go" cup of beer to enjoy during the walk, which was nice. We took 3 middle-schoolers. 2 of the 3 enjoyed the tour. If you have middle schoolers you know that is pretty amazing! A nice evening downtown.”

“Wear walking shoes! Dress comfortably and for the weather. David is an excellent tour guide with many stories to share, but it helps to stay close to the front of the pack while walking so you can also hear his answers to questions along the way. ”
