“We had a great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I thought the tour was fun and informative. Very similar to other walking tours in other cities and the tour guide absolutely makes all the difference. Our tour guide sat and talked with us for an additional 15 minutes after the tour and talked about other Austin ghosts and investigations she has witnessed. The highlight of the tour was the Driskill Hotel. Make sure you book the walking tour with the Driskill Hotel.

“Fun tour and nice walk through town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Monica did a great job, sees to enjoy the job and has a lot to share. Bring a drink - Austin's obviously hot and you're going to cover some blocks. Appropriate for all age groups, but accommodate for those who may not be able to walk the distance (stroller, etc.). Pleasant evening family entertainment.

“Tour guide is everything”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

There was some really interesting info on this tour. Our guide (we got there a few minutes late and I unfortunately missed her name) was truly awful. She literally would say.... "let's see, what else?" Just couldn't believe how incompetent in a city with so many college students who you know could give a great tour. The info at the Driskell was so great... the presentation was truly awful. Wish I could say otherwise.

“Unimpressive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

The tour included mostly parking lots and the stories weren't very ghostly. Austin has some interesting stories, but this tour didn't include any of the Driskill or Capitol, etc. It may be that those are on the trolley tour and we took just the walking tour.

“Lots of fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

My friend and I liked our tour with Monica! We took the trolley tour, and I especially liked the stop at the Driskill Hotel. Monica is very enthusiastic and obviously enjoys the job. I would certainly recommend this tour to others!
