  • I'll be honest I didn't really care to go on this tour. My wife got the tickets and as we know happy wife happy life. Got there and received a warm welcome. Charlie was extremely welcoming as well as his partner. Being out of state military I didn't care for this state until I came here. I had some skoal mint in my mouth when I showed up, I figured he'd tell me to spit it out but he just told me not to spit in a clear bottle haha. The tour was amazing and you can tell they care enough to know they're knowledge of the area. If you have a problem with them then you need to make sure you don't have a problem yourself. The only thing better than this tour would be to sit down and have a drink at a bar with Charlie and listen to him. I would love that opportunity.
  • Interesting stories, but definitely not what I am expecting. No entry to any of the buildings and spend whole 2 hours walking around the plaza. Stopped for 5 times only and each time was told a story. Definitely does not worth 20 bucks in anyway, and my friend got so bored and left after the first stop... 一个导游给你讲故事,讲两个小时,绕着广场走一圈,二十美金。不会进任何建筑,被穷游锦囊忽悠来的可以拿着20刀和朋友去吃顿好点的晚饭了……如果英语水平不过关的话,千万不要来!什么都听不懂的… Re: It’s true that two of them do not or barely speak English, but let me make some clarification here. We were misled by the most famous Chinese tourist guide website, stating that your tour was with a guide using the flashlight and candles to illuminate the dark hallway in the old buildings, and the stories were told there. That was my expectation but seemed the website had some exaggerations. If what stated in that website was true, my friends didn’t necessary have to be able to speak English... And in that photo you posted, it was only two people but not three. The other guy was sitting in our car after the first stop. Guarantee. While still, honestly speaking, I do not think a 20 people group to hear stories for 2 hours worth 20 bucks pp. You may consider my comment as unfair, but this is a tour with no food supply, transportation, entrance fee or anything else.
  • We did the tour April 28th & our tour guides were Alison & Angela, they were great! They made it funny & interesting even though there were A lot of Pokemon drivers that night. I go to Albq just about every year & I did not know the history of old town. I'm glad that we did the tour & I recommend it to everyone.We still want to go behind the blue door!
  • Awesome tour! Knowledgeable, thoroughly engaging, and we had a blast. Alison was a fantastic guide with great energy. We've lived in Albuquerque our whole lives and didn't know hardly anything about any of the stories... super interesting goosebump-producing stories! Highly recommended.
  • I went on a 10pm tour with Craig and Angela with my two boys (8 and 10). It was cold but we all had a blast. The boys could not stop talking about it and felt like it was a great use of our time. Craig was a true showman and told the stories with flair a solid knowledge of what he was talking about. I would highly recommend this to both locals and tourists in town. Really a great time!
