This was a really fun way to spend an evening in Galveston. My wife and 2 teenage children had a great time as well. Dash is a real character, and you can tell this guy loves what he does. You get a little bit of everything from this tour. It's a history lesson, a stand up routine, and an op-ed... More

It's a walking tour and this time, a new-ish but avid history/paranormal buff named Jordan was our guide. She was energetic and very knowledgeable about the city's eventful past, all... More

I was expecting more of a ghost tour, not a history lesson of Galveston Island. Although I was disappointed in being mislead, Raven, our tour guide was very knowledgable. I did find it very interesting on how the island and its occupants played a vital role of shaping Texas.

Great tour! I was expecting to hear some typical ghost stories, but Dash Beardsley knows his history! He has completed thorough research into the history of Galveston, and it shows through his knowledge! A true, one of a kind person with a unique tour!!

This was a great tour. Our tour guide Jordan was VERY knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. You will get a lot of history along with ghost stories. Dont expect to get scared or anything like that. That is not what this tour is. My teenagers liked the stories and had fun.

Tour guide was very animated and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the history lessons and discussion. The time spent for the tour was sufficient. It would be nice to be able to get into some of the locations to get a better sense of things but I understand why businesses would not allow that.
