Prescott has such a rich history as the Arizona Territory Capital in 1864. All of the iconic western legends from Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and Billy the Kid, could be found there as more modern luminaries, such as Sen. Barry Goldwater. There are so many stories to be told, including the tragedies of untimely deaths and deaths on a date... More

We were lucky and had Darlene all to ourselves on a beautiful night so we covered a lot of areas and got to hear some great stories and visit some interesting places. Darlene is working hard to know everything there is to know about the area and shares her stories with great passion. Worth taking this tour

Darlene's Haunting Experience Tours is very fun and informative and ours started at the Hotel Vendome. As most have stated it's about an hour plus walking tour with sitting breaks as needed. I can only imagine how fun this tour will be in October!!! Book it early if coming to Prescott in October!

Darlene is a wonderful historian and makes the tour fun and interesting. I didn't believe in orbs or "spirits" roaming anywhere. Now I completely believe in orbs, saw them with my own eyes. Great tour! Thanks Darlene!

We were only in Prescott for one day, with another scheduled event, so could not take Darlene's normally scheduled tour. She happily arranged for a private afternoon tour for just our family. Darlene is personable and knowledgeable. Our tour during the day did not afford us the "creepiness" factor that night would have, but we enjoyed hearing all of the... More

We met Darlene at the Hotel Vendome to start our tour. We were with another couple and their two teenage granddaughters. Darlene was most personable and filled with stories about 'old' Prescott. We visited several haunted locations. We didn't see any ghosts but we felt that anything was possible. We learned a lot about the history of the old wild... More

My wife and I took the roughly 2 hour Haunting Experience tour last night and it was a totally enjoyable experience.

I highly recommend this tour as a “must do” when you visit Prescott.
