Springfield Walks - Owner of Tour Company Harasses Tourists


The owner/creator of Springfield Walks in Springfield, Illinois gives what he calls a Lincoln Ghost Walk and a Dead Walk tour of historic downtown Springfield and mainly the Lincoln Home area.Earlier this summer a friend and myself were taking a walk in the area and snapping a few photos.

For some unknown reason, he approached us and accused us of ghost hunting (WHAT?) and demanded us to leave if we didn't have a permit. We contacted the National Park Services to see if he had any authority to make us leave and PS we were not ghost hunting. We were told he had no authority to make us leave and we could be there whenever we wanted. We went back again and he called the police on us.

I have no idea what he thinks we are doing but he will not stop harassing us. Since then, we have learned that his business isn't even registered as a business (well it wasn't up until 9/2013) and he has been in operation for some 7-8 years. We tried turning him into the BBB and other places and even making online complaints but he gets all of them removed saying they are revenge reviews.

They really are not because we took his tour last year and it stunk!How he is getting away with everything he does is a mystery!
