    What's the line between prohibition fact and fiction?

    Your guide on this walking tour will dish out the juicy local gossip behind the secret speakeasies, the bootleggers who supplied them and the suspect politicians who perhaps had ulterior motives in keeping Albany a dry town. There may even be a dash of murder thrown into the mix.

    Based on current COVID-19 NYS Reopening guidelines, we can only offer tours for members of the same household/ party. A group price of $20.00 provides a group tour for a minimum of 4 and maximum of 10 attendees .

    If scheduled tour times do not work for your party, please call Discover Albany at (518) 434-1217 or email accvb@albany.org to arrange a private tour.
