Blah!

He was informative but you as a company it would be more entertaining if your guides dressed the part instead of a young kid dressed in shorts, tank top, black shoes with white socks and a backpack! Would have been a more enjoyable experience if he was dressed spooky 👻 or something like that!

We are visiting Austin for the first time and really enjoyed the ghost tour. Jared ‘s storytelling really brought the history and ghost stories to life. We throughly enjoyed the tour. My favorite part was hearing about the Driskill Hotel while sitting inside the lobby.

My sister and I had a wonderful time on this haunted ghost tour. Our tour guide William was great! We loved his storytelling and we felt safe walking around the different stops. We will likely attend the murder tour when we come back to Austin.
