We really enjoyed the tour. We really love hearing the history stories of Galveston. We went shopping the next day and went into many of the places that we heard stories about.

Our tour guide, Jordan, was top notch. This is a must when you come to the island. The ambiance of the strand in the evening adds to the tour.

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.
