I would recommend the tour for those who enjoy grim history lessons (or watch id discovery on a regular basis) and have the capacity to walk long distances. If you get winded easily this tour is not for you. You should bring water as you will need it, unless you want to be awesome and give $2 to this very... More

Our tour guide was very pleasant and did a good job of herding the sheep and making sure everyone could hear. The pace of the tour great, but there was a bit of a distance between some of the stops. Wear good shoes. Not recommended for small children.

Decided on a whim to try the ghost tour last night with my daughter..so glad!!! It's easy to find because they meet right in front of the Alamo and for me and my daughter it only cissy $25. We walked with the tour for an hour and a half with a FANTASTIC tour guide named Jessica who took us to... More

Entertaining and informative but not sure about accuracy of some stories told by our nice guide. We visited one site the next morning based on one of his stories & found it to be highly unlikely. Take the stories with a grain of salt & look at it as pure entertainment & it will be a fun night.

I was hesitant but excited to check this tour out for a future teenage group activity in San Antonio. The sisters that own and run it are delightful and professional. You can choose to have a lovely dinner and tour at the historic Menger Hotel or just the ghost tour which unfortunatly does not include going inside the Menger Hotel... More

Tour guide is knowledgeable, well trained, and organized. The whole event was well done. My wife is pregnant, and our 3 year old daughter had a good time too! Great bargain for the 15$ a head!

Eric was our guide, my girlfriend had set this up so I was unsure what to expect but it was a lot of fun. We saw haunted streets, hotels, churches, clubs. So many various places and Eric was very knowledgable and kept the crowd into it. Our hotel was even included in the tour and after it was said and... More

I'd say this was worth the money. The dinner was nice and the tour of the Menger hotel was definetly worth it. Also the stories about the alamo and the current holiday Inn express were pretty interesting. Now you guys just need to set up an over night camping trip inside the Alamo! Now that would be an awesome tour!

We had a wonderful walk with an informative guide. The tour was just over an hour and a half with a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. Every city has interesting and quirky stories and San Antonio is no different in this respect. The guide related many interesting stories and the price seemed very reasonable.

I'm a tour guide as well, so I'm a bit hard to impress. Lily was very good. I liked her presentation, her demeanor, she is a good storyteller and will be epic soon. The only reason I did not give this tour 5 stars was the holding back of the gory details. Listen, folks.If you're going on a ghost tour,... More
