The ghost hunting experts

We're The Haunt

We are a team of passionate paranormal investigators and  storytellers, committed to sharing the thrilling, magical and eerie stories of those who have passed. 

We love sharing the macabre bits of history with travelers and locals alike, and work with corporate teams on unforgettable team builders too.

Come join us. It’ll be a haunt. 🙂

How It Began

Our co-founders Wes Leslie (also a musician) and Jordon Jo (also a musician) met at SF State in 2008, bonding over their interest in music and the unexplained.

The two moved to New Orleans, which is where they had their own paranormal encounters…

They returned to San Francisco, determined to unearth their hometown’s hauntings, doing countless hours of research in the library, historic newspaper collections, and interviewing old timers.

They launched The Haunt, and the company grew quickly and became San Francisco’s #1 attraction on TripAdvisor. 

Since then, the company has won accolades, appeared on TV shows and inflight magazines, and run team events for major tech companies in the Bay Area and beyond.

In 2022, Wes relocated to Los Angeles to expand the Haunt, launching the city’s first hands-on paranormal investigation tour.
