I’ve now been on the “hotels, churches and riots” and “theaters, infernos and dark alleys” tours. David was the guide for both and he does such a great job at telling everything he knows and answering questions to the best of his abilities. I recommend these tours to anyone interested in learning more about Birmingham in general or the ghost stories! I am excited to go on the other tours available!

We had so much fun with Dani tonight on our ghost tour. I learned a lot about the city I live in and heard some interesting stories about some of the landmarks I see all the time. I would definitely go on another tour with Birmingham Historic Touring and it’s a great way to spend a birthday evening.

This review is for two tours. The first tour was Ghosts and Graveyards- Chauffeured Through the Darkness with Wolfgang and the 1963 Birmingham Civil Rights Experience with Wilhelmina. I really enjoyed both. Wolfgang actually drives you in not 1, BUT 2 cemeteries telling you the various history and spooky details behind it. This is perfect for someone that likes ghost stories and local haunts. I REALLY Enjoyed some of the jokes that he told. The smiles and laughs were worth it. He was also kind enough to drop us off at our hotel in the area at the conclusion of the tour. The second tour was with Wilhelmina. A Lovely local native tour guide that took us on a walking tour. She knew the ends and outs of the old spots in Birmingham as well as taught us some things that we didnt already know about the Civil Rights Movement. This was even more enjoyable since she grew up in the area and remembers a few of those events+social norms of that particular period. This was a great way to conclude the 16th Street Baptist Church+National Civil Rights Institute Tours that I took the day prior. She also dropped us off at our hotel which was awesome. So 5 stars for safety and customer service is in order and well deserved. Both were lovely and exciting tours and I would definitely consider using this company again the next time that Im in Birmingham. The only tips that I have would be to Bring a water bottle and an umbrella for the walking tour. It was quite hot that day, you WILL get thirsty and I was travelling with an older woman.
