Take a peak at the underbelly of Albany and test your courage on our nightly ghost tour. Albany is Haunted!
Russell was our guide for the tour. My wife and I are avid Ghost Tourists and try to do one in each city we stop through. The tour takes you in a sort of quad up through the grand old state and government buildings, filling you in on the reported ghost sightings in each place along the way. The tour is scripted- as every one we’ve been to is- and Russell did a great job with his performance. What I like about this tour is how they make a point to let you know that if you have any stories to share about the places they’re visiting they will incorporate that into future tours- a great idea to encourage people to interact. Our group was just my wife and myself and as such it was a fun time, informative and gave us a look at Albany we never would have known. Great job and wishing them all the best. Go!
