Embark on a 75-minute to 2-hour leisurely walking tour which takes you through the streets and alleys of one of the oldest towns in North America. Life has flourished in the Land of Enchantment for thousands of years.

The historic buildings and dark alleys conceal the long-forgotten secrets of lost loves, Civil War battles, murders, hangings, and hidden cemeteries.
EVERYONE LOVES A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED GHOST STORY!
Professional Tour Guides escort you on a 90-minute, lantern-lit adventure through the scenic Old Town Albuquerque area. You will search for the lost souls of early residents, Civil War phantoms, spooks, specters, wandering apparitions and over one dozen other ghosts who have made Old Town their eternal home. Learn the history and basics of Ghost Hunting as you hear the chilling stories of actual events. Old Town is one of the most actively haunted locations in North America. Residents, employees and tourists have all experienced unexplained phenomena. From actual sightings of full apparitions which seem to vanish impossibly into thin air; to disembodied voices heard in empty buildings; even objects moving mysteriously on their own. Tour is family friendly but is rated “PG” for some real historical information that may be disturbing to younger or sensitive guests.
We do NOT attempt to dictate what you should think or believe. Skeptics Welcome! You’ll learn a bit of Old Town’s History, hear the reported Ghost Stores, review the Paranormal Evidence and then decide for yourself the possibility of the existence of Ghosts. Come with an open mind and bring your digital camera. Guests have captured unexplained phenomena in photos taken during the tour.
This is a fun, old-fashioned , Ghost Story style Tour. We are NOT a Haunted House. No one is jumping out at you - or if they do, they are not with us! We ae not a Ghost Hunting or a Paranormal Investigation Tour (Though we do those from time to time). We do not use cheesy magic parlor tricks. We tell you the reported Ghost Stories, we share the past history of that location and we show you the evidence collected my various Ghost Hunters and Paranormal Investigators during the past 18-years.
Most of the Tour locations are operating businesses which are closed by the time we pass by. We do not usually go inside the buildings during the Tour, we reminisce from the outside walkways. Merchants invite you to come inside and take a look during their regular business hours.
