My daughter and I took the Hotels, Churches, and Riots tour a few weeks ago and we really enjoyed it! Our tour guide, David, was wonderful. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the stories he was telling us. We made lots of stops at historic sites that have haunting stories! We will definitely go again for the second tour!Stephanie W

This tour was super informative and fun. It was definitely a good choice for anyone looking for a tour that’s off of the beaten track. Loved hearing about all the murders here in Birmingham I had no idea there was so much crazy stuff going on here. Very interesting historical city.katfos7

David was our guide and he was great! I've lived in Birmingham my entire life and found out so many things we didnt know! Especially the YMCA downtown! It's crazy, the tour is definitely a must do.docmills83

Great tour!! Lots of well-researched information about the town and the flavor of life many years ago. Plenty of photo opportunities and a rich, interesting two hours!kquandt

Wolfgang was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide! He easily blends historical facts with the supernatural. You're sure to learn something that interests you on the tour as it spans a variety of topics and locations.leigheallison

Our mission is to provide an uncovering of the dark and fascinating history that is all around us, but very few people know. The tours we conduct bring our guests a step closer towards that history by revealing that history, and on select events, providing an experience that is more akin to that of a real paranormal investigation or field survey.


We offer many Special Events throughout the year including our Witches Tour and Ghosts and Graveyards Bus Tour! 


We are available to bring presentations to your group, be it a business meeting, retirement home, church group,  Historic society, or other gathering.  These “Slide and Artifact” lectures cover some of the same subjects our tours do, but are in a portable format.
