It was a great tour full of history and ghost stories...Jordan was great. Wished we could have gone into some of the buildings but we still had a great time.

Galveston Island is one of the most haunted cities in the United States. Taking a ghost tour is a must! Dash Beardsley's Ghost Tours of Galveston offers a number of tours, all excellent. The Restless Spirits tour I took led us through the historic Strand district where many restless spirits still reside - sometimes in the form of psychic orbs... More

We enjoyed this however I have been on ghost tours that I felt were better. The guide was very knowledgeable & she shared lots of stories, Some were gruesome & heartbreaking while others were heroic or sad. However she didn't have the dramatic flair that some other ghost guides have had. The type that bring the story to life. Don't... More

Our Host, Raven, did an excellent job of relaying stories of the deceased and history surrounding the area. I have already recommended this to several of my peers.

Dash has a vast knowledge of the Strand and its colorful past. It was a very enjoyable evening and he narrated and answered all of our questions about the buildings. We took a break mid-tour and got our refreshments and then continued. I think we will look up ghost tours again the next time we are on the island. Great... More

Our guide was not very good about answering questions during the tour. He seemed to lose his place in the stories when asked a question. Didn't explain the sections of the cemetery. It was totally a history tour and not a ghost tour.
