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.

Very entertaining and interesting! The one recommendation I would make is to give a bit more of a description on the website for each tour. Would happily do a different tour with Wolfgang again!

Had such a good time on the ghost walk. Me and a group of friends attended the ghost walk together. It's not just a ghost walk. It's a great history lesson on the city of Birmingham. Went at a slow pace, so everyone was able to keep up. I highly recommend this.

I went last year on the Ghost Walk and loved it. I learned a lot about Birmingham and was surprised since I have lived here all my life. Short walk about 2 miles but it was walk a little and Wolfgang would entertain us with historical stories. Would recommend

Great tour. Short one or 2 mile walk stopping at a few sites and churches. The guy knows his history and gives great detail on everything. I like that the tour wasn't rushed and that we were given plenty of time to stop and take pictures.

A great way to spend a very pleasant evening in Downtown Birmingham! We enjoyed the history of the buildings, including learning about a famous ghost who lived in the hotel where we were staying! No significant sightings on our tour, but still lots of fun. I may have been a bit leery of bringing a child, but there was a... More

I've been wanting to do one of Wolfgang's tours for some time. I had even made reservations a couple of years ago only to be thwarted by stormy weather. Last weekend, we had friends visiting from England and found this to be the perfect opportunity to take this tour and find out more about our own city. Wolfgang's knowledge is... More

This tour was really fun, kind of spooky, and most definitely worth the $20 per person. Most of the tour, if not all, was wheelchair accessible which is definitely a plus! I would highly recommend the Birmingham Ghost Walk.

I sent email and left a phone message to make sure I was refunded. Have not heard from him and now I have received this survey for... More
