Very informative tour about the history of Galveston. Lots of interesting stories ranging from the pirates roaming the streets to the Civil War and of course the Great Storm of 1900.

Tour guide Raven was knowledgeable and painted a picture of a bygone era. He told stories of people and family connections and stopped at nothing to make us feel welcome! Highly recommended.

Friday the 13th, full moon and fog. What a setting for a Ghost Tour! Dash was lots of fun and quite informative on the history of Galveston. We didn't see any ghosts, but it didn't matter. Make sure you sign up for the Ghost Tour of Galveston. You won't regret it!

Worst ghost tour we've ever had. The guide spent too much time trying to get her tablet adjusted. Then we stood on the sidewalk outside of a store as she gave a 1 hour talk on the history of Galveston - never once was the word "ghost" uttered. We already knew the history of the city & didn't need a... More

My wife and I took this tour (slated for 2 hours) on a recent visit to Galveston, having enjoyed similar tours in other towns. The night we went on the tour, the Strand was enveloped in some of the densest fog I have ever seen, perfect for a spooky ghost tour! The tours first stop, and the only one we... More

The group was too large. I'm not sure if that impacted the tour, but we stood in one place, on the steps of a building, for literally an hour listening to someone talk. She said there were a total of 4 stops on the 2-hour tour, which doesn't seem like much of a tour to me. We left after an... More

My family and I were over from Scotland visiting my daughter in Houston. We decided to do the ghost tour and it was one of the highlights of our visit . The lady taking the tour was very informative and great fun. Everyone else on the tour was from Texas and made us feel so welcome. We would highly recommend... More

Our tour would have been much more enjoyable if the tour guide was more eloquent and didn't joke around so much. We were expecting to be entertained with spooky stories and chilling tales. Not worth the money we paid just to hear the history of Galveston and look at pictures on her tablet.

Jordan was an incredible tour guide! Very knowledgeable and a fun personality as well! We learned more about Galveston in our 2 hrs than most people would probably learn in a school course classroom! Very cool! Thanks for a great tour!

This was our first ghost tour, we were visiting from Fort Worth and wanted to include this in our visit since we were interested in the history of the town and the hurricane of 1900. We loved Dash, he was funny and had a lot of information to tell. The only thing that I wish could have been included in... More
