Travel back in time and learn of the spirits of the notorious characters who lived & died in San Diego. Our journey takes us through Old Town, walking through El Campo Santo Cemetery and on to the Whaley House, both sites of many reported paranormal occurrences.

Very boring, not much content, hard-to-understand tour guide, nothing scarey at all. There were 4 of us in our group, and we all left with the same opinion--wasted our time and money on this one.

This is a combination walking/trolley tour, so be prepared. We are locals, so the history part was interesting (except for the inaccuracies). The guide was in period attire, and was nice and answered questions. We went to two cemeteries and looked at headstones. No ghosts,...More

We had high hopes, but if we hadn’t been on a bus, we would have left. We waited way to long for late comers, who never did show up, then listened to dumb stories that made no sense. The trip up to the Graveyard in...More

Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history and told us about a lot of different ghost encounters. On the bus, they play music clips that enhance the experience & walking around in the dark doesn’t hurt. It was very interesting...history, facts that most people...More

Meaning it seemed less a ghost tour and more just a tour with historical information about the settling of Old Town and about the graveyard we visited outside of Old Town. We weren't terribly disappointed, but for sure it wasn't a scary tour. We spent...More

If you like the paranormal it's quite interesting. The Walley House tour was disappointing-they RUSHED you through the small house, not much time to really look around and take pictures.Plus they tell you to take pictures during the tour with a flash-so you have everyone...More

I typically do ghost tours for the historical aspect. Having done historical tours and finding the guide is not a great storyteller, ghost tours hold more appeal. The Professor was our guide. The stories were intriguing and well rehearsed. The ride on the bus was...More

No, this takes place in Old Town. The statue of the nurse is by the USS Midway.
