I could not believe how bad this was. The guide was like a public speaker that had nothing to say but droned on and on. It seemed he had no idea what to talk about, no ghosts, no insight, not really anything of interest ....More

This tour was a great way to learn more about Catalina on an hour long evening stroll. Our ghost tour host, Mason, was knowledgeable and entertaining. He spun a good tale and left it to his audience to decide if it was fact or fiction.

An entertaining way to spend an hour in the evening. Our guide, Josh, was very knowledgeable about the island history, and could easily answer any question presented. The stories were interesting and amusing, not too scary for little kids.
