Walk the shadows in the Valley of the Sun

Phoenix is famous for sunshine, world-class resorts, fine dining, and breath-taking views of the scenic Superstition Mountains. However, the desert is as beautiful as it is unforgiving, and there it has as many tales of tragedy and mystery as it has saguaros. 


On our ghost tour of downtown Phoenix, you will visit some of the most famous haunted locations the city is known for – The famous Hotel San Carlos, the Rosson house, and more. Civilizations have risen and fallen in the Valley of the Sun for 2000 years, and on our tour you’ll hear stories of those that came before, those that followed them, and those who have been unable to eternally part with the city. You’ll learn the secrets of many of Phoenix’s most supernatural sites and discover the oft unheard stories of how they came to be.


All of our stories are drawn from eye-witness reports, research, journalistic investigation, and local legends. We’ve dug deep into the history of each of the locations on our tour, and pride ourselves on bringing the most famous and well-known stories of the paranormal as well as personal accounts from those that experienced it for themselves.

What draws ghosts to Phoenix?

Ever since the mysterious disappearance of the original inhabitants of the valley, the Sonoran desert has been a place of supernatural activity and spiritual unrest. The original inhabitants of the greater Phoenix people were the Hohokam, who developed the first major civilization of the Salt River Valley. They built an urban civilization with ball courts, monuments, and an advanced irrigation canal system that is still partly in use to this day. The Hohokam were a prospering civilization rivaling the greatest of Mesoamerican societies, right up until their mysterious disappearance in the 15th century. 

When the first European settlers arrived, the desert was once again an untamed wilderness, drawing many dangerous and unsavory people in the city’s early history. Residents drank heavily, gambled, and walk the streets of the burgeoning town armed. Violence was common, and justice was swift, rough, and personal. Elections for public office sometimes ended in shootouts.


Any city with a history this steeped in mystery and violence is bound to have eddys of supernatural energy pooling throughout its history. Phoenix’s very name implies the depth of its history as a place where spirits rise, and the shadow of the Superstition Mountains cuts a dark scar across the so-called “Valley of the Sun.” Experience the macabre history of the city in person as you walk the haunted streets and hear the stories of many of its most terrifying events. Reserve your walking tour today for an experience you will never forget!
