My parents, husband, and I went on the Classic Historic Tour of Jerome and thought is was a great learning experience of Jerome itself, as well as the surrounding towns. In July 2017, the price was $80 each for 4.5 hours, which seems to be the going rate for this type of tour. Our driver, Ken, picked us up at our resort in Sedona. His storytelling and knowledge of the towns we traveled through made the time fly! Ken was super accommodating to my father's health issues and really went above and beyond. We were even given a 20% coupon for lunch at a great restaurant named Grapes!

Just to clear things up, this is not at all an abandoned ghost town. Basically an old, former mining town with a historical museum and some shops and restaurants situated high on side of mountain. The person working at the historical museum was very nice but if you're not into learning about mining don't take the long drive up to Jerome.

An absolutely lovely, if quirky, little town. Found it on the way fro Sedona to Prescott. Old mining town used to be full of brothels and saloons - now mostly an artist colony. I counted at least six wine bars. If you chose to partake, make sure you have a driver or a place to spend the night - the road is treacherous. Its a great break, or worth an overnight trip from Sedona.

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.
