This tour to Jerome, Arizona puts the ghost in ghost town. Visit the abandoned mining town along with a guide and head to the spookiest parts of town—places most visitors skip. Your guide supplies you with electromagnetic field radiation detectors that help you sense the spirits lingering in back alleys, brothel sites, and other historical areas.
    What to Expect
    When planning a trip to Arizona, a visit to Jerome and the Verde Valley are a “must do”. On this 4 ½ hour tour, our guide will pick you up at your Sedona, Cottonwood or Jerome hotel, resort or timeshare in one of our comfortable, climate-controlled vans. While your guide narrates the rich history of the Verde Valley, you will travel through historic Cottonwood, once called the “Bootleg Capital of Arizona” for good reason as you will learn.

    From there, you will travel through historic Clarkdale, built by Senator Clark who owned the largest copper mine in Jerome. Clarkdale was designed as one of the first company towns in the United States. Next, begin your 1800 foot ascent up Mingus Mountain into Jerome as your guide relives legends and tales of several murders, suicides, tragic mining accidents and other acts of mayhem resulting in visits from ghosts, apparitions and spirits who linger in this eerily ghost town. You will experience some of the most panoramic and awesome vistas anywhere in Arizona. Your guide will narrate historic stories and legends about this former Billion Dollar Copper Camp once known as “The Wickedest Town in the West”.

    Upon your arrival in Jerome, you guide will drive you from the bottom to the top and all around this National Historic Landmark. You will be taken to back alleys, former brothel sites and other historic areas seldom seen by many visitors to this quaint, historic town. Your guide will supply you with EMF readers and lead you into numerous haunted buildings as well as taking you to sites where visitors from the past will make this a “chilling and thrilling” adventure you will long remember. Be sure to bring your digital cameras as you are apt to capture orbs, shadows and other surprising phenomenon!

    Dave was a very fun and animated tour guide. Very knowledgeable and funny. Would've liked to go inside more buildings for catching paranormal activity, as most of the tour is outside, but overall this was a fun tour.

    We took the ghost walk tour this past weekend expecting something similar to others where you get stories about ghosts associated with historic buildings and whatnot. There are a few of these. The bulk of the time is spent playing around with Fisher Price style "ghost meters"
