Not at all scary, but a good story teller with some fun history of the 'ghosts' of St. Louis.

There is a lot of history behind his stories. Loved his sense of humor. Lots of puns. Some of the stories where his real life experiences as well. Great story teller. Have already told a lot of people about it and highly recommend for anyone looking for something to do while in St. Louis. The walk was only around a few blocks, stopping at spots to listen to a story around that area. A must to do, especially if you are looking for something different.

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.

Dave is a captivating story teller. We enjoyed the diverse subjects and the music accompaniment between stories was beautiful. Would definitely do this again.

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.

Excellent! A beautiful, easy autumn walk to a few of St. Louis' many historical locations, along with expert storytelling. The stories were entertaining and informative enough to satisfy my basic curiosity, and intriguing enough that I went home and researched several of them to find out more. This wasn't a stuffy tour guide with a microphone--David is very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and accommodating, easy to hear and understand, and made everyone feel comfortable.

Mr Riordan is a wonderful storyteller. What makes him so authentic is he's a six generation St. Louisian. He has actual knowledge from family hand-me-downs which makes it really interesting.

We had a great time, David is very entertaining. We learned a lot about St. Louis history and we were comparing our favorite stories hours later.

From Our Editors

“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."
