For our anniversary this year we booked a couple of nights at the Sedona Rough Hotel and chose their wine tour package. It was truly a great choice. Ron picked us up at the hotel and explained how the wine industry is growing in Arizona, the soils needed to support the grapes, the weather conditions required, the ideal latitudes for... More

My grandson came to visit and wanted to do something out of the ordinary. I chose to take him on a tour of Jerome with the idea of imparting some history of the area with some entertainment. Jane took us on an amazing night tour of Jerome, imparting all the fascinating history of this remarkable city. We walked all over... More

We enjoyed the walking tour around various sites in Jerome that we would have walked by unnoticed. We did not connect the mining history of Jerome with there having been many brothels and listening of stories of towns people and using the meters to identify electro magnetic fields was fun. We were taught to ask a "ghost" a question requiring... More

If you want to go to Jerome to shop and look around fine. But if you want to know what it was and what it is now and lots of stuff in between. Book a historic tour of Jerome. We also learned the connection of Clarksdale and Cottonwood. Our tour guide was Ron a past member of the historical society... More

Great haunted tour around the town of Jerome and inside some of the neat old buildings. Jane the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the town and a very nice lady. The tours include E-meters that sense ghost activity and make it really fun.I even got some great pictures with orbs! A must do in jerome

I was disappointed at this tour and the rest of our group felt the same. We started an hour late because we were waiting for people who were late, then we got a couple stories with our emf detectors and flashlights and that was pretty much it. I honestly found locals who told me real experiences that were worth way... More

There were only two of us with our tour guide, Jane, so we were pretty excited. We were each given a flashlight and EMF reader. The tour was all about the history of the town, with a little fun with the EMF readers constantly lighting up and us asking basic questions to "whatever" was around us. Our guide was very... More

Jerome is a former cooper mining town. The mines closed in 1954 and the town turned in to a semi-ghost town. Jerome has reinvented itself and is now a community of about 500 residents who are artists, craft people, musicians, writers, hermits, restaurant and shop owners. The elevation of Jerome is 5,200 feet and has magnificent views of the Verde... More

My family and I were looking forward to a great evening of storytelling and ghost stories. Unfortunately, what we got was a female guide who was more focused on the EMF gadgets than stories. As other reviewers noted there were long periods where nothing was being conveyed and we were just standing around. I've been to Jerome many times and... More
