Another Side Gig Option – This one on the spooky side! (Pardon the typo in the graphic, it should be $40-$50 per tour, not per hour.)

Do you enjoy macabre history? Is there an inner Ghost Hunter in your soul? Imagine meeting people like you who enjoy visiting creepy places and paying you for all the details!

When we came across a way to gig ghosts, we had to share! If you can tell great stories and enjoy a flexible mobile gig, this one might be your fit! Tours de Horror hosted by you!

If you live in one of 100+ haunted locations, US Ghost Adventures may be your way to a side gig doing something creepy with your Great Aunt Linda or other historical figures that may appear.

Here are all the details from US Ghost Adventures on how to be a guide in 2 weeks, maybe less, if you qualify!

US Ghost Adventures is looking for energetic storytellers to lead walking tour groups downtown. Tours are held nightly at 8pm, last one hour to 90 minutes, and cover about one mile of ground. Candidates must be great with people and skilled in public speaking. This position is ideal for self-motivated candidates looking for a fun way to make extra income part-time in the evenings.

COMPENSATION: $40 – 50 per tour plus cash tips

TOUR DURATION: approximately 90 minutes and have anywhere from 2 to 35 guests

SCHEDULE: Tours operate year-round, seven days a week

COMMITMENT: Commit to an availability of 3 nights a week, for a period of 1 year.

RESIDENCE: Applicants must reside nearby, within 15 miles of downtown


Our process involves four steps that can get you started in two weeks, or earlier if you learn the material sooner! The process length depends entirely on how quickly you can deliver a quality tour. We’ll guide you through each step of the process to help you succeed. We also provide a $200 referral bonus if you refer a friend after they complete their first 20 tours.


Each applicant is encouraged to attend one of our live, introductory webinars (optional) with a recruiter to discuss the hiring process and for Q&A. Webinars are held three to four times each week at varying times. If you are not able to attend a webinar, please feel free to move to phase 2 and submit an initial audition!


Applicants are asked to memorize and recite a paragraph (click here to see script and submit the initial audition) of sample material through our quick and easy website.


Once your initial audition is approved, we send you your contract via DocuSign. Once we receive it, we’ll send you the study materials. You will have two weeks to learn the material and the tour route. A test date will be scheduled either for a tour or a live virtual audition with a hiring manager.


During your study and training phase, you will practice rehearsing the material out loud to friends or family, and walk the tour route to become familiar with the locations and where to best stand. We also recommend recording yourself rehearsing the material and watching to seek areas for improvement. You may attend tours given by experienced tour guides to silently observe. Once you pass your test, your first tour will likely be a supervised tour accompanied by a seasoned tour guide to observe.


Once you pass your supervised tour, you will be sent your t-shirt and equipment, and the process and procedures manual to review and sign. The hiring manager will review this with you. We’ll then add you to the schedule, and you’ll start giving tours!
