“Nice way to learn about Old Town”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The tour of old town was quite delightful. Rick was a great tour guide. Because our group was small, he was able to tailor the discussion to suit the members of the group. We took a very leisurely stroll around the square, learning about the notables of days of old, it would have great to go not the ghost tour if we were going to be there for a little longer.

The area toured is rather small. So, set your expectations accordingly.

“Very Entertaining.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Jen was an excellent guide. As a former tour guide I am fairly critical but she did a good job of setting the tone and expectations of the tour upfront. Jen appealed to believers and skeptics as a form of entertainment. She had good transitions between stops and humor to relate to the audience with. Go on the tour. It should be a good time for all ages.

“Ghost tour”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Very interesting tour aside from the typical history of Albuquerque this tour tells of the "ghosts" and legends of old town that haunt it at night. It also explains why the town shuts down so early.

“A Must See!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We went on the Full Moon Tour yesterday night, and it exceeded our expectations. Charlie and Misty, our tour guides, were very professional and entertaining throughout the whole experience. My favorite aspect of the tour was that it was led by a lit lantern, thus bringing an eerie yet exciting atmosphere to the situation. Aside from the legends of the numerous ghosts that reside in Old Town, we also benefited from the historical information as well. Definitely a MUST see while stopping in Albuquerque!
