      Fun night out in Phoenix
      Had fun on the haunted pub tour in Phoenix with our guide Jared. Went to 3 hotel bars. Jared had plenty of creepy stories to tell and shared a lot of the local history. Everyone on the tour was into it. Great way to see some of the city that we wouldn’t have otherwise explored. Highly recommend!

      Fun tour with haunted history
      What a fun evening! Jared was prompt, friendly, and very knowledgeable about Phoenix's history. The tour was fun and the right amount of spooky for our group. I would definitely recommend this (or any of the tours he does)!

      Informative history of Phoenix with a spooky twist and great drinks!
      Jared was extremely charismatic and funny! Really informative tour that gives ample knowledge of the dark history of Phoenix. You can tell he has a passion for the history of Phoenix and has put in ample work into learning all he can about the area. There were a few spots were a little hard to hear what he was saying but overall an amazing experience.

      Would go on another tour with Spirit, again!
      This was a fun tour, especially because it was only my parents & I on the bus! Our guide, Amy, was super nice and even shared the same hometown as us (in WA state)! She gave us Xmas candy & asked if we preferred to listen to Xmas music or something else. She told us about the neighborhoods we viewed & about specific houses on the block. Amy also walked around with us and took several family photos, which turned out great. There was so much to see and we enjoyed getting off the bus a few times to walk! Thank you for making this a fun & festive experience!

      Jarrod did a great job of showing Christmas lights in the Chandler area. Stopped at the really cool spots to let us walk through

      Great Fun and Information!
      I originally booked this tour months prior to November but I unfortunately wasn't able to make that tour. Even though I wasn't able to make the original tour date, Spirit of Arizona Tour was very accommodating and let my friend and myself change our original date to November. This was my first experience with this tour and it was great! My friend had taken this tour before and still had a great time too! I'd highly recommend this tour because it's spooky but you get amazing information about historical sites and hauntings in Phoenix. We can't thank our guide and Spirit of Arizona Tour enough for our fun time!

      A great evening indeed.
      Great evening with Jarred as we toured 3 pubs in the Phoenix downtown area. He’s a great narrator and a passionate historian. We took the tour with our college aged kids and they enjoyed it thoroughly. It’s a great way to see parts of Phoenix that we may have otherwise missed. Thanks Jarred.

      Fun, entertaining and educational tour!
      Our party ranged in age from 9 - 51 years old and we all loved it! Jarrod was entertaining, knowledgeable and his passion for Arizona and its history was evident all 3 hours of our tour. Although I didn’t feel any paranormal activity, 2 people in our tour did, which just added to the excitement of the night. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who’s curious to learn and has an interest in true crime - some of the people on our tour were locals and they loved it too!

    We had a GREAT time touring with Jared. We booked this tour last minute as a celebration for my birthday, and it ended up being the highlight of the weekend.

    Jared was super charismatic and knowledgeable about all of the stories behind the different haunted sites. He was interactive and humorous and answered all our questions. He researched the crap out of all of these stories and can tell you multiple versions (what he thinks versus what the online fanboys think), which made it really entertaining. In addition, the tour came FULL CIRCLE. First location connected with the last one-- creepy and cool.

    We left this tour knowing that we will be back for a future tour (Christmas lights, or haunted pub tour is next on our list) because of the quality. Jared is a great storyteller and we will be back to hear more stories on one of his other tours.

    This tour was super fun. We got the chance to go inside the “Murder House” of Winnie Ruth Judd. Even though it was a bit creepy, it was still fascinating. Jerod did a great job of narrating and telling us the stories behind what we were seeing. I highly recommend it.

    Absolutely loved our tour. I am new to the area and enjoyed learning the dark history of Phoenix from a passionate historian. We felt safe at all times while on the tour. Jared is an animated tour guide with a real passion for history and Arizona. He has put a lot of work into creating and maintaining relationships with owners of the tour stops. Tour time flew by quickly and I could've easily kept on going. I am looking forward to participating in the other tours that Spirits of Arizona offers.

    Jared is amazing!!! My friend and I did the murder mystery tour and it was so much fun! We did it in the AM and it was just as spooky as I’d assume it would be at night. Not only was it amazing but Jared accommodated us so that we could enjoy it before our flight back home. I highly recommend! :) You’ll definitely enjoy your experience. Thanks so much, Jared!

    We had a great time with family on Spirit of Arizona's haunted pubs tour. This was led by Jared who safely got us to 3 local establishments with darker histories than any of us were privy to. It was extremely informative while also engaging, as Jared knows his stuff but also ensured we had a great and comfortable trip. Some of the things you see and discuss are eye-opening and as mentioned, dark, so be prepared for that. Highly recommend the tour, and we will definitely be checking out his other offerings in the future!

    We could not have had a better time during our haunted pub tour with "Spooky" Jarrod! Not only was he patient with our highly intoxicated bachelorette group, he was extremely informative and super funny! The whole experience from start to finish was an absolute blast. Can't wait until the next time I'm in Arizona so I can check out another tour. Thanks, Jarrod!!

    Absolutely fantastic! Along the way, Jarrod described the history and plant life of the desert and some of the local legends and historical facts of the area. He brought us to the most scenic places in Sedona, our pictures are phenomenal! Sedona is an adorable little town with great shops. I will say, however, the star of Sedona is the scenery! I highly recommend Jarrod and any of the Spirit of Arizona tours!

    3 couples went on this day trip found by one of the wives. I had no real knowledge of what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the tour, Jarrod and the scenery. The bus was very comfortable and clean. The information that Jarrod shared was very good, and covered everything from state and local history to local plants and critters. He was very accommodating and funny. We stopped midway for restroom breaks and the cooler with waters was appreciated.
    Scenery in Sedona could not have been better and the stop in Sedona included plenty of time for shopping and dining in the great selection of restaurants.
    Highly recommended to anyone, including families.

    Took my kids on this tour, they’re both 17 years old, and they absolutely loved it! Our tour guide was fun to talk to and engaging, also very knowledgeable about the history of Phoenix. We definitely had a great time, you should wear comfortable shoes because he will be walking a lot!

    Spent more time on bus than learning about murder mystery. Visited approx 4 sites literally parked in front of the locations and listened to uninteresting general info about supposed murders that occurred in the homes. Way overpriced for value received. Host was very nice but showed us his iPhone generic pics to support the tour . Do not recommend, sorry

    Hi Michael, Sorry for such a late response. We were slammed in November and December. I had to go back to our onboard camera to remember your tour. Tours like yours are the reason we have cameras on board. As I recall, per the video, your group was very upset that I would not stop to get alcohol. If you guys just wanted to drive around Phoenix and drink, that would’ve been fine. All you had to do was call and request a customized tour to do so. We’re accommodating. Gin and tonics were the most popular request per the video. Maybe you’re not aware but many of our previous guests post pictures of the experience. As you can see, per previous guest photos, we make seven stops and do indeed get out and go inside some of them. But I understand why you wanted to tell a little fib to try to make your point. Even if it is untrue. As far as the photos that I show on tour I’m not quite sure what you mean by “generic”. If you mean that I did not take them, you are correct. I did not take the crime scene photos from 60-90 years ago. Phoenix Pd took them. I got them from various records. I do want to thank you though. You’ve taught me a very valuable lesson in behaviors to recognize in guests before the tour starts. Even after 12 years of tour guiding, there are always lessons to be learned! Take care, SpiritofArizonaTours.com
