Beautiful Architecture

We met with David our tour guide and was happy with his extreme knowledge and great personality. We have toured many ghost tours in different cities. Birmingham doesn't have as many ghost experiences as some other older cities, but David made the tour super fun with great lessons in history as well as some spooky stories! David is a good storyteller!
Response from Host, Sep 2022
We are so glad you enjoyed your tour! I agree that we don't have the depth of history as some much older cities come up but we did pack in as much weirdness and adventure is our 150 years allows...and our history is not over knows?
Danny rocked!

Our tour guide was excellent! He was a great story teller and was lighthearted and fun. The history of the Birmingham area was interesting and enlightening. Glad we did this tour!!!
Great Experience!
Katelyn_Z, Mar 2022
This was a fantastic ghost tour! David was very knowledgeable and a fun and interesting guide. We were a small party, just my friends and one other family, so he was very interactive with us. He knew a lot about the history or each of our stops and the context of the time periods being discussed, which I think is critical to any fun ghost tour experience. I am a Birmingham local and I learned a lot about the city that I didn't previously know. He mentioned other tours he does and me and my friends are very interested in going on more of them in the future. You won't regret this fun trip into Birmingham's spooky past!
David was fantastic!
Dawn_L, Oct 2021
David was an excellent guide! He was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. Even though there he gave us a lot of information, he still made sure we got to experience each location throughly. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the prominent and haunted buildings of Birmingham!
Very entertaining date night!

We chose The Birmingham Ghost Walk for our date night, and had a blast! The tour guide is hilarious, but just enough so the tour was kinda creepy but not too morbid. I also loved learning about the history and architecture of the area. Highly recommend , but eat before you go 😂
