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

The Ghost Tours of Galveston tour guide, Jordan, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She had so much information and old photos, she spoke quickly so you have to keep up! I'd go again, teenagers would enjoy but it may be a little intense for younger...More

The Walking Ghost Tour was a surprise for my grand daughters - ages 13 and 14. The tour guide perks your ghostly curiosity with very interesting historical information about Galveston - specifically The Strand district, and takes you directly to the buildings where "sightings" have...More

Jordan was our tour guide and she was very sweet but the tour itself was one of the most boring things I have ever done. While I realize that ghost sightings aren't readily available... we spent about 2 or maybe even 3 hours touring OUTSIDE....More

I have been on several ghost tours in Key West and NOLA. Some good some not. This was a good one. I read the negative reviews, and I believe people have the wrong expectations about ghost tours. You will probably never see a ghost. It...More

It was horrible and never showed up to take us on the tour. Don't book it. They don't show up for the tour. We was on our honeymoon and looking forward to the tour but the guide never came. Very unprofessional.

Our group had a terrific tour with Gina. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed hearing about the history and haunting of several of Galveston's buildings.

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.
