As an unofficial custodian of Temecula history, I take great pride in the information that I provide during my tours. I am a 30+ year resident of Temecula and have been actively involved in the historical community during that time. As a historian, I present my tours in a unique way to bring the history of Temecula to life, going back to the days of pioneers, cowboys, and other notable figures.
I have been featured in The Californian, Press-Enterprise, and San Diego Tribune newspapers, Country Review Magazine, Uncover Temecula Valley - Visit Temecula, and A&E Biography's My Ghost Story: Caught on Camera.
My tours have been winding through the streets and pathways of Old Temecula since October 2008. Old Temecula Walking Tours is the longest running and most detailed tour of its kind.
My wife and I went on Dale's candle light tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great way to spend an evening walking around Old Town and Dale is great with the stories. One of the families that was in our group had a couple of kids and they really seemed to enjoy it too.

Dale is an entertaining character and full of fun stories about the olden days in Temecula. Highly recommended! You'll never view Temecula the same.

Just came back from Old Town Temecula where we took a Ghost Tour with Dale Garcia with Old Town Temecula Candlelight Walking Tours. I can't say enough good things about this tour. I was lucky enough to win two tickets and then purchased a few tickets for my teenage kids to join us. Initially, the kids thought this would be hokey - but quickly were captivated by the stories Dale shared with us. It is obvious that Dale has a passion for sharing Temecula history with people.
