My husband and I loved this tour. The history along with the stories made it great. I loved every minute of it. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Learned a lot about San Antonio that I didn't know before. Love the story of The Yellow Rose of Texas. I recommend this tour to anyone that visits San Antonio, it's worth... More

With all the rave reviews, I was disappointed that this tour was not as good as I would have hoped it would be. Perhaps some guides are better than others, I don't know. I enjoyed learning a little about San Antonio history but when it came to the ghost stories, they were vague and seemed fictitious. Perhaps it would have... More

This ghost tour gave an awesome history of San Antonio with an eerie ghost feel! I loved it! I would highly recommend this tour if you're looking for a fun night out in San Antonio.

This was a great tour! Lots of history, creepy enough for the 14 year old but not too scary for the 8 year old. Very knowledgeable and personable guide Allison knew the city history well. We even got a spine tingling picture. Very much recommend!

We recently went to San Antonio and were recommended to go on a ghost walk tour. We had a great experience, gaining a deeper understanding of San Antonio's history with our tour guide who walked us through the city. They showed interesting pictures which made the experience even better. Would highly recommend this tour.

The tour guide was humorous but also informative. The material was just right in terms of complexity. Sister Grimm also travelled with an IPad showing pics of possible paranormal activity.

This is a San Antonio must do! Lily was amazing and her details of the historic ghostliness of San Antonio was entertaining and at times made the hair stand up on the back of our necks. My teens are still talking about it 2 days later! Reservations are strongly suggested as the groups are small so everyone can see and... More

A fantastic event in San Antonio. My two grandgirls (ages 6 and 10) were engaged and entertained throughout the dinner and tour. Both girls and myself enjoyed the excellent dinner at the Menger Hotel as well as the engaging and completely doable tour. A lot of history and girls were not scared at all! We all became enthralled with the... More

It was a really fun evening. Dinner was great and the tour and stories were very interesting. I liked the addition of photos taken at different locations. I never have luck getting pictures. I would love to do another tour with you in the future. Maybe one in King William or La Vilita or a combo?
