Locke Chinatown Historical Walking Ghost Tour & Investigation led by a psychic-medium/paranormal investigator.
-As seen on Ghost Adventures ' Locke Episode during their week long investigation of Locke & visit to the nearby Ryde Hotel!!!
(Locke/Walnut Grove is about 30mins SW of Sacramento and same NW of Stockton in the delta- 1 hr from Modesto & about 40 mins from Antioch, Tracy, or Fairfield)
*$20 cash on arrival, please have exact change, no other payment forms accepted
*6-9PM approx. (6:00PM check-in @ Al The Wops (we'll meet outside by the benches--it's about 1/2 way down Main St. across from the infamous leaning Star Theatre featured on Ghost Adventures) 13943 Main St, Walnut Grove, CA 95690. Sign-in is at 6PM the Tour starts around 6:45PM and goes to about 9PM. Please arrive early to find parking in back parking lot. You are encouraged to take pictures/video if you so wish, you never know what you might capture! Please send my way if you do capture anything-thanks :) all 3 buildings we investigate are featured on Ghost Adventures--The Dai Loy gambling hall/brothel/opium den & the Tong mafia building along with the Chinese schoolhouse/meeting hall. Weather and time permitting we «may» investigate outdoors by the Star Theatre and/or memorial garden.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: **please save all paranormal questions/stories until the end of tour and not during sign-in time or during the tour since we have a time constraint w/ how long I'm allowed in the museums and we have 3 buildings to investigate and the first one takes longer than the others. Please also refrain from prolonged personal conversations during the main part of the tour as well, since that's distracting from others during the spirit box sessions when we're trying to listen for spirit voices. If you need to make a call please do so outside the building (leave borrowed equipment inside) and if you're texting in the building, keep in mind that falses equipment used in your vicinity & I would prefer you do that as well outside or in an isolated part of the building away from the group at least-thank you**
A liability waiver will need to be signed upon arrival along with your $20 per person cash payment. 13+yrs.old* accompanied by adult family member. No refunds on the day of the tour/no exceptions. Payments in advance via PayPal can be refunded up til 9PM the night before the tour, after that, no refunds. **In the event you, or your child/minor under your supervision damage/lose/steal a borrowed ghost hunting equipment item during the tour, you accept responsibility for paying for the value of the item.
Please BRING A FLASHLIGHT (some back rooms are dark during the day) and you're welcome to bring ghost hunting gear or apps as long as you keep the volume down or off while I'm doing a ghost box session w/ the group. Phones should be off or on airplane mode during the investigations to avoid falsing equipment readings you're using or used by others nearby you. I recommend the FREE app Ghost Radar (red app by SpudPickles) for either Android or iPhone). It is similar to an ovilus.
Please have exact cash or make change in one of the restaurants nearby (I will not break large bills and there is no ATM in Locke, only in nearby Walnut Grove) OR if you pay via Paypal (to: [email protected]
) for multiple people please do so in ONE transaction and put the name of the tour and names of who you're paying for in the PayPal transaction message box (very important). Then print a receipt or have on your phone upon arrival -thanks very much!
**There is a caveat with this tour, I need a minimum of 15 people to «actually» show up to ensure this tour, otherwise I may have to cancel it (and will post this and contact everyone who marked «going». 15 marked going doesn't mean 15 actually show up since people cancel/don't show, so I need at least 20-25 to mark «going» and may cancel if less mark «going» or if no one responses back. If you bring people who don't use Facebook and can't mark «going» let me know. If I cancel I will of course refund anyone who paid via Paypal in advance and will notify people.
This tour will visit a few of the buildings GAC filmed: The Dai Loy gambling house/brothel/opium den, the Tong building and the Chinese schoolhouse until 8PM. We may either go to Al the Wops or investigate briefly by the memorial garden/Star Theater outside depending on the weather and noise from people outside from the bar. If a Ryde Hotel tour is planned after Locke, the tour may end before 8:30PM. All borrowed equipment must be returned at 8PM after main part of the tour.
I only provide spiritual cleansing/protection after the tour (holy water/essential oil spray that I make and use to help prevent spirits from following people home (which isn't common but just to be on the safe side). I also say the Lord's prayer in Latin. I will not stop mid-tour if you decide to leave early to cleanse-please be aware of this. Also please return any borrowed equipment. The spirits on this tour can be grumpy, some are friendly, some are «randy» since these were former brothels, but nothing really malevolent happens, however if you know you're an empath/sensitive/psychic/medium you should ground & shield yourself because it can be overwhelming at times for those type of people. I do welcome any other empaths/psychics/mediums--please let me know if you are if you don't mind. You can (optional) wear grounding stones like hematite/magnetite/quartz/black tourmaline, etc. to help you ground but this isn't required and I myself do not use such things because I prefer to be completely open to draw the spirits to me.
Private tours can be arranged but again I need at least 15 people (friends &/or family), I can arrange tours in Modesto or out in the country in the 209 at cemeteries for private tours as well. I may be able to arrange tours elsewhere such as Modesto, Knights Ferry, Locke or elsewhere but definitely need 15 or more people for most tours--I might do less for Modesto since it's local for me.
*(IF YOU PLAN ON STAYING THE NIGHT :) I recommend the very haunted art-deco Ryde Hotel nearby across the river heading south, although we will not go there during the tour. Room 201 is probably the most haunted if you can get it--people get touched there and we've heard knocking noises, voices and odd smells, 206 is also quite active as is the hallway between the 2 rooms and there are some rooms on the 3rd floor that are active-including the hallways, unfortunately the more haunted ones on the 3rd floor have flood/leakage damage from last winter. Not all rooms have a bathroom, so inquire if you don't want to share, they're usually not busy, as long as an event isn't going on, so you may still get a hallway bathroom to yourself. Also inquire about the speakeasy if you stay the night, they will likely let you check it out, it's active as is the 'tv room', bar area, lobby and kitchen--really the whole building is active, even the parking lot, washroom and back gardens & former brothel (the 2 previous hotels were located in the parking lot). Also bring or ask for bottled water, the tap water is metallicy well water. If you stay the night, check out Locke during the day, the boarding house is one museum building we won't investigate, I've heard it's 'somewhat' active upstairs, museums open at 11AM. There is also a haunted grocery store down from the Ryde Hotel where I saw a full body apparition and my friend got smacked in the tush and an ice cream/sandwich shop in Walnut Grove that is supposedly haunted, I sensed something in the bathroom but didn't formally investigate. Al The Wops is also active in Locke, I have investigated with equipment there and have videos on youtube.
Here are some youtube vids of mine from past tours or investigating w/ friends in Locke:
*Spiritual protection AFTER the tour will be provided free of charge to those who request it only--if you leave early during main tour time (6-8PM or 7-9PM depending on the time of the year, then I will not stop what I'm doing to provide spiritual protection--that takes away from others' time so keep that in mind. Also please save all paranormal questions until the end of tour since we have a time constraint w/ how long I'm allowed in the museums to investigate-thank you*

No refunds are given on or after the day of the tour, no exceptions, some tours have a no refund policy before the tour date so read carefully. Most tours you can pay cashs on arrival but there are exception such as a tour overbooking on the «going» list which is out of my control so then I have to either have people pay in advance via Paypal or I may allow people to contact me direct by email to get permission and pay on arrival. Certain tours may be Paypal/pay in advance only and depends on various factors such as the establishment being investigated. All borrowed ITC (ghost hunting) equipment must be returned by the end of the tour or at each location if multiple locations w/ driving inbetween is applicable. It is your responsibility to bring a flashlight and dress appropriately for the weather/terrain. Please wear comfortable shoes/boots and not sandals/flipflops nor high heels. Wearing dark colored clothes is optional but recommended. It's recommended not to wear cologne/perfume as well in case we get «phantom smells». Keep phones on airplane mode or turned off so as not to false EMF devices. Thank you-Ryan
