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!

We took the ghost tour of old town. It was okay, nothing fantastic. I did like the history they provided during the tour. I thought that was pretty interesting.

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

We got a free tour with Old Town Tours as a perk from the hotel are staying in, the Hotel Albuquerque. Only my husband and I showed up to take advantage of this, so we had a private tour! Meredith was very knowledgeable, funny, and answered any question we had. A wonderful time! Highly recommend!

We did the ghost tour our first evening in town, very engaging and one of the best experiences of our time there. Our guide was lively and entertaining and held my attention and everyone around us for the entire time of the tour (which was approximately 2 hours). They do other tours as well so be sure to check out... More

It was a fantastic tour. They combined history with ghost. Couldn't ask for better. Not so sure that we didn't encounter a ghost. Felt something and nothing was behind me. Awesome. The guides were knowledgeable and knew the history. Spent a little extra time showing us more. They were helpful when we didn't know how we were going to get... More
