This is a good second tour to take if you've already taken their first tour to get the older background information. They should, however, reconsider ending the tour in a different location than where it starts. We've been to Galveston many times and knew how...More

The Ghost Tours of Galveston was the best part of my trip to Texas. The guide, Alicia, was both extremely knowledgable and entertaining. I will definitely be going again on my next visit!

Our guide, Jordan, spoke way too fast and lost her place in the script often. We also had a large group join our tour after it started, absolutely not Jordan's fault but even though it took about 15 minutes to get them checked in we...More

Our guide was very good. She knew the history of Galveston, which is fascinating. But, the cost is to much. Not much of a " wow" factor at all, as far as "ghosts". Money would be better spent to buy a book or visit some...More

I am a huge paranormal believer and adventurer. Been to all haunted sites in San Antonio TX even the ones your not supposed to. I want to know which tour is more likely to experience paranormal activity. I know activity happens at all times and every where, but which tour has a history of having the most activity and highest creepy factor. FYI I am not afraid of cemeteries but if that's the best for me let me know please.

Definitely not Ghost Tours of Galveston. The guide uses pictures on her computer to demonstrate ghost activity. There was absolutely nothing scary about it. I recommend you get the book "Ghosts of Galveston" and explore on... More

Do you actually get to go inside some "haunted" buildings, or just see them from the outside?

Only one of the buildings that I remember, but it happened to be the one with the most paranormal activity. The name of the building escapes my memory.
