    We were looking for history and ghost stories, not low rate community theatre. We got a theatre major that kept referring to his boss and how much more he knows about this tour. He admitted that he’s never seen a ghost and does not believe...More

    Jim was great. Took us around the city and really made you get a vision of what happened in the past. Jim was very outgoing, informative, and friendly. There is so much history in that downtown area and he gave us a glimpse of it...More

    Disappointed. Paid $75 for three people. Tour guide sounded bored the entire time and rarely mentioned any hauntings. Also, he wouldn't wait for us all to cross the cross walk so we ended up getting stuck behind. We ended up leaving. Don't waste your money...More

    I don’t think you will make it on time. He does one tour nightly, he needs you there by 7:45. Traffic in Austin is not good on a normal day, it will be even worse around a holiday.

    Jo's Coffee Shop near 2nd and Colorado. There's a sign for the meeting point out in front.
