The Ghost Tour was a lot of fun, and very informative. My husband and I are in our 50’s, born and raised in Houston, and we’ve been to Galveston a million times. We learned so much about Galveston during the Ghost Tour. And, will definitely highly recommend to our family and friends!!!

Not as expected

We called Viator and spoke with an agent so we could pick a tour that had an inside portion because of the weather. We were told this tour went into the railroad museum and the opera house. We didn’t even talk about those two locations and the tour was completely outside.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
I'm very sorry that via tour misinformed you. They completely missed the boat. As all of our websites indicate , our tours are conducted outside and we don't go into any of the buildings. They should have paid specific attention to your request. Please call via tour and ask for a refund and I'll approve it sorry for your inconvenience John 832-245-0492

Good time in the cold

Was a very active night, and we had a fairly large group. Unfortunately some of the group kept having to go get a drink or bathroom, causing the tour to be a bit shorter than would have liked. It was freezing, but still had fun, and even caught a few good ghost pics. Would do it again.

Our guide, Josh, gave us a fun and informative tour, despite it being frigid out. He did an excellent job of providing a mixture of history and haunted happenings. We learned a lot that we hadn't heard before. Josh was funny and very engaging, and made sure that we all stayed safe throughout the tour. Thanks for a great tour!!!
