One of the best ghost tours!
This was hands down one of the best ghost tours I’ve been on. The owner of the company was our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Austin and is a wonderful storyteller. Heard some unforgettable stories. If you enjoy ghost tours or have never been on one, this is a must do. You won’t be disappointed.

Informative & spooky!
Aug 2021
First things first I want to brag on our phenomenal guide, Tyler- he was friendly and informative, but what I appreciated most was how passionate and engaging he was! It was so obvious that Tyler loves what he does, and has a genuine fascination with the history (spooky and otherwise) of Austin.

My partner and I signed up for this haunted tour and didn't really know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised! It was a great way to explore the city by night, and I enjoyed the leisure nature of it all. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling great and we had to leave early, but I would still recommend 10/10.

Not your average scary story....
Aug 2021 • Couples
It was so cool to hear about some of the interesting things to have went down in Austin. Tyler (our guide) did a great job telling the historical, and sometimes chilling, stories about the history of Austin and how it all happened! These were quite telling, spine chilling, and sometimes unexplainable... But we loved every second of it!
10/10 experience, definitely would recommend.
