Jarrod is amazing!! We booked this tour because it's a bus tour so there's a chance to tour different neighbourhoods and places and have a break from the Arizona heat. The tour is amazing. Jarrod is personable, kind, funny and he drives well. His stories are interesting and the locations are fascinating and in some cases beautiful. We got to walk around and take pics at 5 stops and he has a good relationship with the owners/ managers and he maintains those so he can keep his tours going. Part historical part murder mystery part touristy visit its a blend of perfection all in one. You can tell Jarrod really enjoys what he does because he makes each story he tells come Alive. Highly highly recommend this tour and this company.. in fact were taking a tour with him tomorrow as we tour phoenix and Area.Support local small businesses that work hard and know how to do it right!!

Very historically accurate and detailed tour guide of some of the best haunted pubs in the Phoenix area. Jarrod was very knowledgeable and friendly as well as accommodating with tour times. Being a Phoenix local, Jarrod has done his research and will give you a plenty of information on any question you have. He is a great story teller. It is a fun adventure for those interested in history and well documented ghost tales.

Some of my friends and I took a Christmas light tour with Jarrod and we had such a great time! Jarrod was great, he was so friendly and very funny! We enjoyed our tour through all the great spots that I had never seen before while listening to great Christmas music. And he took requests with the music which made it a lot of fun. I am looking forward to taking another tour soon. Thank you so much Jarrod for the fun night 🎄🎄🎄

Had a great time on the Spirit of Arizona Christmas Lights Tour last night. Jarrod (our driver) was very knowledgeable and friendly and funny. The lights were beautiful, the bus was comfortable, and we were able to get out and walk through the neighborhood. I highly recommend this activity for children and adults. Can't wait to go on the next one!!

We took the Christmas light tour with Spirit this year and from the moment we met Jarrod, he was funny and personable. He was a lot of fun on the tour as well. He took us to some great houses and interacted with us as if he'd known us a long time. Best tour driver I've had. Was nice to be able to sit back and enjoy lights instead of worrying about driving. Great job Jarrod! I highly recommend taking one of his tours
