So this was more a historical walk through the Galveston cemetery than anything else. The guide, bless his heart, tried to remember his lines and did a good job overall. However if you're looking for a ghost tour, this isn't it. I was disappointed in...More

The tour guide was good and kept us entertained (2 adults and 2 kids 12 &7). It would’ve been a lot better if they had brought us into more buildings instead of only 1 building.

This was for the tour of the strand area. It was supposed to be a walking tour that lasted about 1 1/2 hours. It was much longer (over 2 1/2 hours) mainly due to her stopping us in some weird crystal store where the people...More

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.
