I'm a chicken when it comes to ghost stuff, but this was really good. Very informative about the history of the town and hotels in the area with a good mix of ghost stories.

Guided tours are a bit of a crap-shoot in my book. Great guides can make the most mundane things interesting and inexperienced ones can ruin a fascinating place. The Sisters Grimm guides (James and Lauren, a husband & wife team) were knowledgeable, flexible, polite, and sensitive to their customers needs. The had all the right technology too - tablets with...

My wife and I did the dinner and ghost walk on October 4, 2014. Our tour guide, Allison, was wonderful. I would recommend this to everyone. The Menger Hotel is not to be missed; so much history with that building. Outstanding evening. Well done Sisters Grimm, especially Allison.

I was on the October 4, 2014 8:15p tour and this is definitely a walking tour not to miss. Our tour guide Jessica, was very informative, and she had a tablet with older historic photos to show when buildings had changed. Both my fiancee and I highly recommend this tour.

After that we were treated to a walking tour of San Antonio. Lilly was knowledgable and well spoken; she had a microphone so hearing was not an issue. The tour... More

The tour guide was one of the actual 'Sisters Grimm' she had a lot of knowledge of the area. The ghost stories were amazing, rich with history. There was not a lot of walking and she used a microphone so everyone could hear well. One of the best ghost tours I have been on.

This was my first trip to San Antonio for a girls weekend getaway. We chose the dinner/tour option and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service we received at the Menger Hotel. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of the area as well as the ghost stories. Allison was a great tour guide. She... More
