Anyone who is interested in the history of Birmingham should take this tour. Wolfgang is a great tour guide, he is knowledgeable about the history and very friendly. The tour is at a casual pace and at $15 is a great price for the tour. The tour covers murders, suicides, brothels and much more of Birmingham's history. I left with... More

I gathered a group of my friends to go on the ghost walk, I've been wanting to do it for months. My husband and I got a babysitter for the night and I'm so glad we did, it was very fun and informative! I didn't catch anything in photos, sadly, but my friends got an orb or two. Wolfgang is... More

Son and I joined friends and took the tour. Learned a lot of Bham history (not all in history books,) and heard a few ghost stories. Pleasant walk through downtown. Informative and humorous guide. Highly recommended!! Worth the 15.00 per person. (cheaper under 12 yrs old)

I'm a history buff and live in the area just a short ride from the meet up location. Wolfgang has gone to extreme research length to find out little known stories and tidbits. Tour is 2 hours long but 2.5 hours later we were heading back to the car. Not a problem at all for me, just wear comfortable walking... More

If you are interested in local history, a good storyteller, architecture or an encounter with the "ghillies, ghosties and things that go boomp in the night" give this Ghost Walk a try. The tour is interesting, well-researched and very enjoyable. Thanks to the host, I see downtown B'ham in a whole new way. I would definitely take this walk again!

We went on this trip just tonight and had a wonderful experience. I was reluctant at first because I'm not one to believe in much paranormal activity but if you are like myself then dont worry there is still plenty of fun to be had. Wolfgang has done his research and is very knowledgeable about Birmingham both good and bad.... More

I have grown up in Birmingham my whole life and I thought I knew everything there was to know, and boy was I wrong. Wolfgang is definitely very passionate about this city and the stories it has to tell. I was highly impressed with the information he gave us and how entertaining it was to learn more about Birmingham and... More

We really enjoyed our tour. Wolfgang is an excellent tour guide! We heard some ghost stories! But we also learned about architecture and history of Birmingham as well as heard about some of its colorful characters. I highly recommend this tour for people who want to know more about this interesting city. I hope Wolfgang is able to add history... More
