We decided to take this tour as we wanted to learn more about the area, Dave, our driver, was very knowledgeable about the area and the geology of the mountains. We also learned about Cottonwood and Clarkdale and the mining industries. Dave had many stories about Clark and how he made his money. We had time in Jerome to do some shopping and have lunch at Grapes restaurant which we had a 20% coupon from the tour company. We were the only two on the tour so we felt very special. We would recommend this tour very highly.

We were picked up at our villa and driven to Jerome. Along the way the guide gave us a history of the area including Cottonwood and Clarkdale. Who would've know that Clarkdale is named after the same businessman that Clark County, Nv is named after? We learned about the bootlegging in the area, saw buildings erected by the WPA and the mining of copper, silver and gold. Once in Jerome we had lunch at Grapes with a 20% off coupon courtesy of the tour and given some free time to shop and soak in the atmosphere of this old mining town, now an artist haven. Once back in the van our history lesson continued as we went to the site of the old mines and toured the different areas of the city.Definitely not a tour to be missed. Visiting Jerome without the historical background is little more than a shopping trip.

This is a small company and you can tell they flat out LOVE what they do. We took 3 tours in AZ (1 jeep, 1 bus, 1 walking) but could have just done this one for history and fun. There were a few groups on the tour and our guide had us all laughing and even applauding. We had lots of time to "haunt" the spookiest places (OMG the JAIL!). I think each of these tours must be tailored a little, because Jerome is so much about it's brothels, and you could see 'Still Dave was dancing around that subject because there were children present. Afterwards he took the time to help some of us with local tavel tips.

If you like ghosts and history and don't have a lot of time in AZ - do this tour. Most of AZ closes at 9, and this is at night, so if you do it early in your visit it will help orient you for the rest of your stay. They were even on CNN. --- And "DON"T TOUCH THE PICTURE!" lol

My husband, son, and I went on the Haunted Tour of Jerome and we are sorry to say, but canot recommend it. We don't remember our tour guides name, but he didn't seem to have a lot if interesting stories and they didn't seem complete. We can away knowing that Jerome is haunted, but we didn't feel like we knew a lot about the town or the ghosts. It may have been the guide as they can really make the tour. I would be interested in learning more about Jerome as I sure didn't learn a whole lot on this tour. There was a lot of standing around while people took pictures of orbs and not enough storytelling. We walked away very disappointed.
