This tour was interesting - but did not focus on ghosts. It mainly featured historical information about downtown Dallas. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. The tour's website promised that the tour included going in one of the haunted buildings. We were very disappointed that we did not get to go in any of the buildings.

Four of us went on this tour. You meet at a restaurant in the West End (good restaurant to eat at) and leave on a walking tour of over 1-1/2 hours. You walk to several locations in downtown Dallas and hear about the early history of Dallas and ghost sightings. We also got to go in one building and tour the building, hearing about the ghost sightings in that building. I thought the tour was very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and had done a lot of his own research about the history of Dallas and the events behind the ghosts. I thought it was a fun eating to go eat and do the tour.

We've been on dozens of ghost tours all over the country and this is the first where most of the tour didn't consist of any "ghost stories" sightings, hauntings etc. There was a story about the Ghost Adventures crew stealing one of their stories at a hotel, but during the entire walking part of the tour that was the only ghost story that was told. The guide mentioned that it was an unusually large group, so I don't know if that was a factor, but it was very hard to hear him. It was very loud on the street, he talked too fast, and told many stories that just weren't really necessary or interesting. We spent the first 15 minutes or so walking to one end of the tour. He talked the entire time to the people standing immediately next to him, but no one else could have heard what he was saying. We got stories at the court house (Old Red Museum) about public hangings and possible secret hangings, and even less possible hangings in the clock tower, but no ghost stories about hanging victims to make the point of the stories. We got other stories about the "history" of Dallas and it's buildings, but the guide also admitted to doing all of his research online and by word of mouth. Not sure I've ever heard that before, but I guess it's becoming more prevalent. We got stories about an old cemetery of pioneers being moved and replaced by a parking lot, and the slave cemetery wasn't moved, but as building projects in the area continued to progress more and more bones being found, and a covert dig site earlier in the year...and yet again, maybe an interesting side story, but without "ghost stories" or sightings by people in nearby buildings, construction workers on site, or people parking their cars in the lot...why is this even on the tour? And finally some ghost stories, once we get to "one of Dallas' oldest and most haunted buildings," which makes up the last 30 minutes of the tour. I didn't take the kids through most of the dirty, dusty old building, but my husband did go through the building with the group. Did I mention it was dusty? And there is no air conditioning, so being in Dallas, it isn't a fun time in a hot old building for 30 minutes. Some of the stories in the building are interesting, but again, all are completely unverified. The worst part is that the tour guide calls himself a skeptic, even claims that he used to dismiss most orb photos, but now that he enlarges and over-analyzes the "structure" and color of the orbs in the photos, he believes that most of the photos taken (in the dusty, old, unoccupied building) are true spirit orbs. There was one little girl on the tour with a camera taking photos (and getting orbs) who he totally freaked out by making her think she was surrounded by spirits. Really? Who does that? He did have some previous tour photos to share with the group of about 20 people, on his iPhone, but they were all photos of orbs. If better research could be done, editing on the stories being told and locations on the tour to keep them on topic and interesting, with correlation to actual paranormal experiences, sightings, and/or investigations to make this an actual ghost tour, then it might be worth your 25 dollars.
