Bad Medicine at Admiral Hotel


All Ages Walking Tour 2 Hours Historically Accurate

Creole Magic, Confederate Skeletons, & the Last Slave Ship

We are excited to return to the Admiral Hotel with this bone-chilling haunted tour. Mobile is an historic city full of dark stories: a slave ship Clotilda is hidden in the Mobile River for 150 years. A Confederate submarine becomes a tomb for its crew. And, a Creole lover jilted by her lover turns to a conjurer for help. Charms and spells have been used for centuries to resist evil, attract love, and cope with a dangerous world. Join tour guide Todd Duren for this exciting new walking tour experience.

Guest Reviews
This brilliant tour guide tells stories of individual people whose lives were shaped by the economics, social forces and politics of their era. While that might sound dry, it's NOT. It's fascinating! You learn to really get to know an area and its old buildings on a tour like this, and it was easily the highlight of my trip to Mobile, AL. Todd answered all our questions and went into more depth if people asked. Wear walking shoes. I would highly recommend this experience!!!
I am a big fan of city walking tours and Mobile Secret History Tour ranks at the top. The tour is well researched and Todd gives weaves interesting stories throughout each of the stops along the way. Todd is a natural storyteller and a self-confessed bit of a 'ham". I learned several stories about my hometown that I had not known. This is a terrific tour where you will have an enjoyable time and learn something as well. Well worth the ticket price and fun!
