Monica really knows her history! Plus, she is always doing more research and talking to people in the know about new ghostly encounters. We learned a great deal and really enjoyed our tour!

We had great weather on the evening we went. Our guide was easy to understand, knowledgable, humorous and open to questions. We visited several of the well known sites in downtown Austin and got to see them in a different light. I highly recommend this...More

The toor guide was ok at telling stories, but there was not much else and it was not very clear where all of it supposedly occurred, no,entering buildings, strictly an outside walking tour with a couple of stops....not really impressed.

Yes. It is an outside downtown walking tour. For investigations which are inside and look more deeply into a location join one of the many groups in Austin that meet up regularly.

We were looking for some spooky fun and a walk on a nice October night. That’s not what we got. Our guide was overly concerned with pushing her book and giving unnecessary context to the stories, which should have been the focus. Once we got...More

I love the idea of a walk through history incorporating a learning experience with exercise. Being the first night of this year's walk, there were a few "bugs" to work out with timing & verbal performances. Speaking of bugs, I would suggest using a mosquito...More

We were with friends and my wife agreed that it was a lot more fun with friends. September was the perfect weather. Our tour guide seemed to be trying to remember the stories as she told them.
