Private Tours

Secret History Tours offers private group tours that are just like our open booking tours, but are private. These tours are great for most company events, professional conferences, weddings, and family get-togethers. For a pre-paid fee you can meet up at a set location and take the tour together.

Todd did a fantastic job. He knew a lot of very interesting facts and kept it fun. I am a lifelong resident of Mobile and learned a lot. Visitors to Mobile will love it.
