If you are looking for a good way to get to know the city of Birmingham and aren't too afraid of things that go bump in the night, the Birmingham Ghost Walk tour is a great way to get to know the city.

Our tour guide David (who dresses the part and is very knowledgeable) does a great job of framing many of the historical events of the city with possible spooky locations and explanations of what happened at these locals. He mixes in discussions on architecture, current day Birmingham politics, and the evolving culture of the area into his stories so that you walk away with a good sense of what type of city Birmingham is.

This is definitely a longer walking tour, but our entire family (including two teenage sons) enjoyed the full two hours as we roamed around the financial and tourist district of Birmingham. David was good about stopping for pictures, ensuring that everyone could hear him, and setting just the right tone so that the tour remained light hearted even when we were discussing some of the harsher stories of death and mayhem.

The tour sizes can vary dramatically (our tour got upwards of twenty people but they can also be smaller around seven to ten folks) but it is all outdoors and there is plenty of room to social distance if needed.

Would highly recommend this tour both for people new to the Birmingham area as we were, or those looking to learn a little more about some of the buildings that they pass by every day and may not know the true stories behind them.

My husband and I were the only people on the tour the night we went, but we still had the most amazing time. We’ve been on two other ghost tours in other cities and I believe that this is the best we’ve been on. Our tour guide David was not only extremely knowledgeable, but fun and entertaining as well. He was cracking jokes the entire time and his personality really shines through - something we’re not really used to with these types of tours. We’re both skeptics, but David did an awesome job at developing a suspension of disbelief. The tour was very interactive and fun. I would highly recommend anybody that comes through Birmingham to give it a try. We were only there for one day but we definitely plan on doing some of the other tours when we’re here again.

We have now done two tours with Bham Ghost Walk. The first, Churches & Riots, was hosted by Dani. The second, Theatres, Infernos, and dark alleys was hosted by David.
Amazing, knowledgeable, ENTERTAINING tour guides.
We got to learn much about the history of Bham, some folklore, see beautiful architecture, and even a few spirits.
We look forward to more tours with this company!!

Dani was fabulous, great story-teller, and adapted on the fly to make it ever more memorable as "things" happened along the way. We were a small group, and I've seen that lessen the quality, but not with Dani, she was awesome, particularly to my son ... who opted to kill me with a hatchet. Life lesson there. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.

It was a great way for a first time visitor to learn a little about the city while enjoying the thrill of the ghost tour. I also found it very interesting to learn about the architecture of all the buildings. Our guide was so accommodating and funny. My bf and I had a great time :)

My husband and I have been making it our "thing" to go on a ghost tour for each historic town we visit. We were pleasantly surprised at how well done, well researched, and fun this tour was! David was our guide, and he personalized the tour for our smaller group, taking us to multiple extra locations and telling us extra stories. We had a blast, and if you're in the area, this is a must-do.

We were on vacation in Birmingham and had paid for this tour a couple weeks prior to our trip. This company canceled our tour about an hour before departure time. We asked the guy what the availability was like for the rest of our trip to see if we could go another night, he wouldn't give us a definitive answer, so we asked for a refund instead since it was too much trouble to reschedule. He said he would refund us but never did. We contacted this company since then and they still have not refunded us!

1st of all, if you have not gotten a refund we most humbly apologize... The only reason we have canceled a tour recently is due to the extreme weather that has gone through Alabama.... So far as we know all refunds have been issued, but unfortunately your review Did not give me enough information to follow up with you and find out what has happened. Please send a direct email to tours@bhamhistory.com so we may take care of this and work with viator to find out what happened.

My wife and I went on the ghost tour and learned a bit about Birmingham over the course of the tour. David was a great tour guide with a good sense of humor that was interjected pretty well in between macabre stories about Birmingham. We do plan to try their other tours the next time we're in the area. I'd definitely recommended it for history buffs as well as folks who may like a scare or two!

We have meant to go on this tour forever but never made time since it's in our hometown. We should have planned it sooner. We really enjoyed the history of the tour. The rest of our family really enjoyed it also including my mom and 11 and 13 year old. Our host was very nice and a good story teller. We are hoping to go on the new tours soon.
