My husband and I have been making it our "thing" to go on a ghost tour for each historic town we visit. We were pleasantly surprised at how well done, well researched, and fun this tour was! David was our guide, and he personalized the tour for our smaller group, taking us to

I was very impressed with both Wolfgang and David, the guide of the Birmingham Ghost 👻 Walk Hotels and churches! First of all, the amount of research and digging into Birmingham’s past by Wolfgang is quite amazing, he could probably be a writer. David was awesome, not only does

It was a great way for a first time visitor to learn a little about the city while enjoying the thrill of the ghost tour. I also found it very interesting to learn about the architecture of all the buildings. Our guide was so accommodating and funny. My bf and I had a great time

I am terribly sorry that this occured. There are sometimes miscommunications between Online Travel Agency (OTA) sites (Viator/TripAdvisor, Expedia, Air BNB, etc) and our own booking system, and for that we greatly apologize. Many small tour companies (ours included), operate with less than 5 total staff (ours is just 1 main employee (myself) and 2 contractors), and sometimes it is difficult to keep track of 5 or more separate sales channels, and most just presume that it will work like it is supposed to...and well,,,occasionally there is a glitch that we don't catch in time. That is what occurred here, and we are MOST sorry that it did. I now make it a point to look at all of our listings across all platforms on a daily basis, just to make sure. Thank you for understanding. PS - we finally found what happened to our missing guide

I went on this tour on short notice, as I was sent to Birmingham for work last minute. But I am glad I found the time to do this! You get to learn a lot about the city and its history, while also hearing some spooky stories. Some of the hotels in particular were creepy. David
