My granddaughter and I thought John was excellent. He knew the history of the locations we went to, and his enthusiasm for it was obvious.. He had also talked to owners, managers, and employees of businesses who had paranormal experiences firsthand. Will be booking with his company in the near future for a Denver tour.

Lots of history and folklore. Very good tour. Recommend if you enjoy a pleasant evening learning about Colorado Springs.

Very professionally done. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours. It’s worth the time and money

Great experience, not very crowed, excellent staff.
