MY husband and I have taken Dr. Jays walking tours many times and have learned so much about this wonderful little town and it's people. Dr. Jay is informative, entertaining and engaging! It's well worth it! Can't wait to take another tour!

The best walking tour in Tombstone! Fun, informative and a must do when in Tombstone. Doc Jay knows his history and adds humor to his tour. His insight makes you think beyond the Tombstone 'story'. If you really want to enjoy and learn something about Tombstone take his tour and then see the town through new eyes!

If you want to enjoy your Tombstone experience to the full, then look no further. Dr. Jay's walking tour is informative, very well run & very funny. He certainly knows how to entertain everyone. It's well worth the $18 per person charge. You get a real feel of how tough life was in this rugged land. Go ahead & book... More

Dr Jay is the BOMB!!! This was by far the best way to tour Tombstone. He as interesting, entertaining, insightful, and extremely engaging!!!! From my 65 year-old parents to my 10-year-old son, we all learned so much. He knows his stuff and knows how to deliver it. Please, please do not skip this, but make it a must-do when in... More

We went on a Ghost Tour the night before and were somewhat entertained, but heard that Dr. Jay really walks the talk! He is a veritable fount of all things Tombstone. He backs everything he says with research as he's a diligent historian. There are many other talents. He has acted, been recognized as historian to a TV series and... More

There's a reason Dr. Jay has five stars on Trip Advisor! His tour was engaging for our whole family (no small feat when you have one history buff, a toddler, and someone who's just along because it sounded kinda cool). He has great tips about other Tombstone attractions, knows a great deal about the town and its history, and seems... More

Dr. Jay makes the real Tombstone come alive! He was humorous, knowledgeable and animated. He chatted with everyone in the group and even remembered where we were from and what our interests were. The walking tour was by far the best part of our day in Tombstone. We even met a couple in our RV park who had been married... More

Dr. Jay met us on time, and chatted while we waited for the rest of the group to arrive. Small group, about 10 people. The man has his shtick down to a tee, but answers questions readily. He's probably heard them all before. The walk is brisk. This guy walks fast for a 67 year old. You can tell he... More

We had heard this was a great way to see the town and get real information about Tombstone and it's history. By far the best. The group was small enough that you can hear his stories. Dr Jay knows his stuff and kept it interesting. Well worth the money but book early as when we called at 8 am they... More

I went on a 3-hour walking tour with Dr. Jay in March on a research trip to Tombstone with my NAU Honors Class. It was my first time to Tombstone and Dr. Jay made the town's history come alive with his fascinating anecdotes and great sense of humor. Dr. Jay had really good information on Tombstone that you wouldn't be... More
