We have been to Jerome several times on our own, and we talked to the owner who suggested it would be a great tour for us to take regardless. That was a mistake. The 5 hour ultimate tour is very overpriced and not at all complete. We toured only about 2 1/2 hours. Our tour started at 10:00 in Cottonwood, and we were dropped off for lunch at 10:45 a.m. (too early) Then the wine tasting was scheduled right after lunch and we said we wanted to go later. We basically saw nothing new but everything we had seen before, with some slight new insight. Surely not worth the $250 cost. The tour guide was pleasant but she rambled on with no real connected story line, and she kept confusing towns in her narrative.

We heard about Jerome from a couple of our tour guides but I really didn't know there were actual tours. If you enjoy history of little towns then I would definitely look into getting a tour. We went as a last minute "let's just check it out" kind of trip after another tour guide told us about the Haunted Hamburger. We decided to head up for dinner. It was such a neat town with so much history. I would recommend a tour if you want to get the most out of this interesting little town. I'll be looking into the history on my own only because it is such a cool place. If you enjoy old town history then check it out.

He was very knowledgeable, he had a story about every place they went to. They saw a lot of historic places. We live in California and loved going to Arizona, taking that tour and knowing the story from all the historic places. The colors are beautiful, everything seems to be uniform.

We did the 5 hour Spirits of Jerome tour that included a pick up at our location by the tour guide.
I thought that this tour would allow us to explore more of what the town has to offer and after having gone, I feel that I missed out on most of it.
The tour was only available late in the day with a pick up at 3. Once we got to Jerome , we were given one hour to eat and once we finished, every shop in town was closed.
A tip about the time things close would have allowed us to skip dinner and check out the shops. Also, the $110 price included a dinner voucher, so leaving that off would also make the cost more reasonable.

The ghost tour itself was okay. It included some interesting sites.
We typically love ghost tours, but this tour guide was very low energy and soft spoken so we struggled to follow his stories and hear everything that he said. He was a friendly guy at least.

Wanted to get out and explore, so we booked this tour. Out guide Ken was extremely personable and the 4.5 hours just flew by! We learned a lot about the "Wickedest Town" in America and had a great lunch at Grapes Restaurant. Next time we'll do the ghost tour!
