Our tour guide, Keeley, gave a great presentation when we stopped at the Driskell Hotel. Her stories and knowledge about the history of the building added so much to the tour. From the beginning of our trek through the end, Keeley was friendly and engaging. Her knowledge of Austin history is impressive and she clearly loves her tour guide job! She's very good at drawing people out and working with a group. Thank you, Keeley, for a super fun evening in beautiful, spooky downtown Austin!

The most memorable part of my experience was walking into the haunted Driskill hotel. in fact later that night I had a dream I was on the staircase with some kids. Super spooky 😎 Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pulled a lot of personal experience and stories from others to keep the entire night believable and engaging. Thank you so much Keely.

The haunted ghost tour was amazing! The tour guide was a great guy and also a fantastic story teller. The approach to all of the stories and ghosts were intriguing and it was the perfect amount of “spooky” to get you thinking. A fun way to see the city and a great way to hear some local ghost stories! Thank you SO much!
