Old Town is the birthplace of Albuquerque, founded in 1706, and for more than three centuries people have lived, and died, around the Old Town Plaza. The historic buildings and dark alleys conceal the long-forgotten secrets of lost loves, Civil War battles, murders, hangings, and hidden cemeteries.

Professional Tour Guides escort you on a 90-minute, lantern-lit adventure through the scenic Old Town Albuquerque area. You will search for the lost souls of early residents, Civil War phantoms, spooks, specters, wandering apparitions and over one dozen other ghosts who have made Old Town their eternal home. Learn the history and basics of Ghost Hunting as you hear the chilling stories of actual events. Old Town is one of the most actively haunted locations in North America. Residents, employees, and tourists have all experienced unexplained phenomena. From actual sightings of full apparitions which seem to vanish impossibly into thin air; to disembodied voices heard in empty buildings; even objects moving mysteriously on their own. Tour is family-friendly but is rated “PG” for some real historical information that may be disturbing to younger or sensitive guests.
