The Pied Piper Of Tucson Tour

These tragic events from the 1960’s shocked this desert city and sent horror down the streets of Tucson’s easygoing community. This tour is factual and authentic. You will see the lost locations of these crimes, view the crime archives and have lunch where the Pied Piper of Tucson perfected his craft. Fasten your seatbelts for this crime-fueled, cold-blooded tour.

Not for the faint of heart!

On the day of the tour, your Crime Historian will meet you at a previously arranged time and location. He will then drive you to many of the locations and crime scenes. Some of the locations may have been published by the media, but many have not. This is what makes our tours interesting. They have been fact-checked by our research team and verified through police reports and court transcripts.

If you are a crime buff, then this tour is definitely for you.

Duration of full tour will be 4-5 hours depending on weather and traffic.
