Fun and interesting tour. This format works well and is very easy to use. Would definitely try other tours


It was a nice walk thru downtown but nobody knew anything about it when we started at the hotel so pretty embarrassing


Fun, self-directed tour! Easy to follow directions, with great stories for each site. Perfect for those of us who prefer a more independent experience.


The tour is very well thought out. The person that did this tour paced it perfectly. The directions are very clear and easy to navigate. We did it on a Saturday night and the town was virtually empty. Almost felt like we were in a ghost town.


The guided tour was a pretty awesome experience. Low cost and some crazy history about the area! The church one was honestly a bit eerie the night we went because none of the street lights were working that day. 😬


Stories are well told. The travel time was actually very accurate and we usually were starting the next story right when we got to the new location. Directions were also accurate and clear. Very excellent overall! Honestly it was fun to be able to do this without the hassle of a larger group.


I went with my 18 year old son while visiting UA. We had fun, learned some history and got to see some great architecture. I don’t mind being a little nervous on a ghost tour but it did bring us down an alley that was not ghost scary but was definitely…alone at night in a city walking through a dark alley that locals were living in, scary. After that no more allies for us. I know I would have loved the guided tour but it sold out so we decided to do this instead. I would do it again in another city but use a bit better judgement on where I was going. We did really like it though. GPS worked great and the streets were almost completely empty so we were able to listen to without earbuds.
