The 2016 season is upon us and this year we are adding a broad collection of daytime historic tours! Churches, the historic city center, a civil rights tour, theaters both here and past, an architecture tour...and of course, in the evenings the ever popular Birmingham Ghost Walk! The historic tours are themed by month and the Ghost Walk will continue to be a broad look at all the dark and hidden history of downtown.

This was a well-run ghost tour as the tour guide was knowledgeable and gave an upfront history of the city. We have previously taken ghost tours in New Orleans and Charleston, and although this wasn't our favorite, it was solely due to the fact that...More

I have done about 5 historical walking tours in the past. Charleston, New Orleans, Savannah, etc. this is hands down the most informative and worth the money tour I have ever done. I highly recommend!

I love the birmingham ghost walk. Its nice to see someone who actually knows birmingham's unique history instead of making up fake paranormal events like some places in birmingham do. Highly suggest!

I am in love with darker side of history, and I enjoyed learning more of Birmingham's duskier side. There was no doubt our guide had done his research. His personality and knowledge made the tour quite enjoyable. I will book again.

I've been on a few ghost walks before around the US, but this one has to be my least favorite. The walk itself is very nice, getting to see a lot of historic buildings (from the outside) in downtown Birmingham, but that's about it. Majority...More

The tour guide, Wolfgang uses a cane to walk. The tour is a very comfortable pace with lots of stops and Wolfgang would not leave anyone....he's awesome! Tell him I said hello!
