The driver/tour guide had a great deal of knowledge of the Austin area and history. He had answers for every question any of us asked. He was even aware of events from the past even though it was not part of the tour. Such as the Servant Girl murders in1884

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour tonight. We received great personalized service from our guide (name escapes me) as well as from some of the people at the stops. Austin is filled with interesting people--both living and dead--with stories of sadness and tragedy. The people at Haunted ATX know their history and do a thorough job in presenting... More

Riding in a hearse was definitely not on my bucket list BUT what an informative tour. Chris, the owner & driver, knew so much about Austin and it's history and took us so many place around town that I was glad we decided on this Tour. Yes, it's a bit difficult getting in & out of the hearse but Chris... More

Visiting the US from England, we had heard of this city full of weird - Austin. Thought we'd have a look around and discovered Haunted ATX. Chris was our guide and he was fantastic, never thought I'd get to ride in the back of a hearse with my eyes open, and what a machine. Great local insights from Chris and... More

I love tours, especially ghost tours. You get to see a "darker" side of cities that way. However, this was a pretty terrible tour. The guide was extremely nice and lovely, which is the reason I gave it 2 stars. Essentially, we had to sit in the very back of the hearse (there were people in the front seats) so... More

Hello Rebekah We apologize that you did not enjoy our tour. We understand that the windows in the back of our Hearse are small and can be a little difficult to see out of, but please understand that our hearse did not come with those windows and we had to install them ourselves. We are in the process of getting... More

First of all you are going to have fun riding around in the cool hearse! Second he knows his history, his ghosts and experiences. But most of all you saw things on the tour you wouldn't normally see visiting a city. The combo was great. Plus we all had way to much fun waving from a hearse!

This was probably the most fun I've EVER had! Chris kept our interest, allowed us to move at our own pace, and made the tour fun AND creepy! It was awesome riding around in a hearse and he really knows a LOT about the area. I was worried that the hearse would be uncomfortable and small, but we had plenty... More

I want to write a glowing review of this tour because it's such a cool idea and our guide was a nice guy, but the truth is we saw almost nothing. The back seats have only a tiny window, the top of which is shoulder height. We bent and leaned and slouched but still saw little. If you take the... More

Forty years ago we celebrated our first anniversary by having two police officers help us remove a bat from our apartment. What could be more fitting than having a haunted tour to commemorate that night? Although we have been Austin residents for many years we learned a lot more about the darker side of the city last night. We visited... More

This was a very unique way to tour Austin at night! Chris provided a wonderful experience and was very well informed about the city's history. He also had great suggestions on where to visit while in town. I would recommend this tour for anyone looking for a little fun in their evening. Well worth the money and I would do... More
