The tour of old town was quite delightful. Rick was a great tour guide. Because our group was small, he was able to tailor the discussion to suit the members of the group. We took a very leisurely stroll around the square, learning about the notables of days of old, it would have great to go not the ghost tour... More

We took a group of students to Old Town for a Ghost Tour and Meredith did an Awesome job! She gave us lots of interesting history tidbits as well as explaining various ghost sightings. A very informative walk around old town. I would highly suggest this tour!

Jen was an excellent guide. As a former tour guide I am fairly critical but she did a good job of setting the tone and expectations of the tour upfront. Jen appealed to believers and skeptics as a form of entertainment. She had good transitions between stops and humor to relate to the audience with. Go on the tour. It... More

Very interesting tour aside from the typical history of Albuquerque this tour tells of the "ghosts" and legends of old town that haunt it at night. It also explains why the town shuts down so early.

We went on the Full Moon Tour yesterday night, and it exceeded our expectations. Charlie and Misty, our tour guides, were very professional and entertaining throughout the whole experience. My favorite aspect of the tour was that it was led by a lit lantern, thus bringing an eerie yet exciting atmosphere to the situation. Aside from the legends of the... More

Took the ghost tonight and we loved it! Our tour guide was Jen- she was great! Very interesting and extremely entertaining. Not sure how believable the stories are, but I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone looking for a different and entertaining activity!

We have taken both the Ghost Tour and the History Tour and loved them both! Our guide, Meredith, was truly excited about the information she shared. Her love of this city and its history is apparent in her presentations. We'd recommend either or both of these tours to both out-of-town visitors and locals!

Our guide Meredith had a lot interesting stories and experiences to share with us. I would say... More

We were in Albuquerque before the balloon fiesta and saw the tour hand out in our Bed and Breakfast. We try to book local history tours when we travel. The tours starts just off the Old Town Plaza and tour covers the few blocks around the Plaza. I won't tell what we saw or heard, but there were eerie moments.... More
