Where are we going today?
Step back in time with the fascinating tours through the historic Old Town Albuquerque with the aptly named Tours of the Old Town! The whole family can immerse themselves in the history, lore and legends with your professional tour guides!
There are a number of tours that you can pick from, so you can make sure that you get only the best for your kids!
The history tours are a great way to REALLY learn about the "Duke City". You will make your way through an exciting 75 minute to 2 hour leisurely walking tour through alleys and streets of one of the OLDEST towns in the entire North America! Amazing!
Kids can hear all about how the city and people have changed over the years - from when the American Indian tribes inhabited the land, to when it was founded in 1706. There are public history tours daily at 12pm from March to October, so there are plenty of opportunities for you!
Of course, the most popular Tour of the Old Town is the SPOOKY Ghost Tour! This 90 minute guided tour will take the family on a lantern-lit adventure. Maybe some of the older residents of the city will stop by to say hello! From the wandering apparitions, Civil War phantoms, and over a dozen other ghosts that still roam the streets - what do you think their stories are?
You will even hear real stories about apparitions that just seem to vanish, to disembodied voices heard in empty buildings!
For those who live in this amazing city of Albuquerque, and those who are just visiting, Tours of the Old Town will be just as interesting for everyone!

10% history, 15% watching/listening to recordings of noises and television shows on DVD, 75% standing around listening to stupid campfire-type stories of encounters and old crimes. Spend your hard-earned money elsewhere.

This was our first ghost tour, and we enjoyed it so much we've been on two other tours in separate cities since. While our Albuquerque tour was a bit more expensive than the others, it was definitely the best. Our guide was a talented storyteller, and did something that I haven't seen in other tours: let us sit down occasionally. Definitely worth your time and money if you make the trip to Albuquerque.
