Graveyard tour was great. More historical than a "ghost tour" type of event, but my wife and I prefer history to nonsense anyhow. Rained the entire time which added to the overall experience. Tour guide was very knowledgeable!

So boring and mediocre! Save you're money and do a haunted house there. Most of what she was tellingoing us we could have googled.

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

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.
