This is the introduction and exploration of our dark and interesting history and covers many of the main haunted and unusual sights downtown. We begin with the tales of the founding of our city as a rough and tumble mine and mill town, and continue through on with missing children, and spiteful murders..  We hear the tales of two of our haunted hotels, and three of the five original churches of the city.  There is then the tale of murders most sad, which has led to the legends of the “Mermaid of the Lake” and the major riot that followed. Then continuing through the darkness, with the shadowy footsteps that follow…to the discovery of a hidden cemetery or two…

We have now done two tours with Bham Ghost Walk. The first, Churches & Riots, was hosted by Dani. The second, Theatres, Infernos, and dark alleys was hosted by David. Amazing, knowledgeable, ENTERTAINING tour guides. We got to learn much about the history of Bham, some folklore, see beautiful architecture, and even a few spirits. We look forward to more tours with this company!!

The tour guide was wonderful! Great info & presented well. Plenty of time given to ask questions, take photos. Also appreciated that she had photos on her phone for us to reference events/people she was speaking of.

Dani was fabulous, great story-teller, and adapted on the fly to make it ever more memorable as "things" happened along the way. We were a small group, and I've seen that lessen the quality, but not with Dani, she was awesome, particularly to my son ... who opted to kill me with a hatchet. Life lesson there. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
