Fantastic experience.

thiis was one of the most fun things my husband and I have done in a while. Noel was a great tour guide and so informative of the history of Galveston and created the perfect backdrop as to why the island is so haunted. We captured a couple of great photos as well. Turns out my grandmother's family (her mother) were some of the survivors of the Great Storm of 1908 and the rest of our family were actually killed in the storm, so I ended up having a direct connection to the island. Great experience.

History Tour

The tour guide gave us a lot of interesting history of different time periods in Galveston. I think I enjoyed the history more than the “ghost” aspect of it. It was interesting.

The history was interesting to learn about. I was disappointed that we only got to look at the outside of the buildings.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Unfortunately security insurance for rentals from going inside and it's up homes. Additionally some of the homes are lived in. We agree it would be wonderful to be able to visit all of them but that would be impossible to do in an hour and a half

When he was talking about one of empty houses a light that was on flicked low as he talked about a spirit that didn’t like the changes a contractor was making on the house. Not off. Just low. As if the electricity was being strained. It was creepy.

Good tour and guide. Even kept my teens’ attention for the 1.5 hrs. Large crowd though, we counted 45 people. The guide managed it well but if looking for a more intimate size, try on a weekday or do a different outfit.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Sorry about the size of the crowd. Unfortunately the additional tour guide scheduled sprained her ankle. But I'm glad that you had a good time and thank you for the five stars. Please check out our reviews and our competitors reviews before you book a tour. You'll see we are the highest rated on TripAdvisor and on Google. For good reason. Don't be disappointed or intimidated by the size of the crowd. you'll still have a awesome adventure.
