Your tour was awesome. We had a great time. Our tour guide was very cool and she was very knowledgeable of the history of Galveston. She did a great job guiding us and telling us about the history and ghost. We didn't see any ghost or apparitions, but did have some local vendors and residents that told of some encounters... More

The tour was very interesting, a lot of historical facts were provided. The tour guide showed pictures on her tablet which was an added bonus. I would certainly book one of the other tours offered if I go back to Galveston.

Raven the tour guide was great, really knew his stuff. Not what I expected being held at night in an old creepy cemetery. Kinda boring, mostly the geniology of Galveston.

Overall a very fun activity for a night out in Galveston. Ended up being more of a history of Galveston but the walking tour takes you through some beautiful historic architecture. Our tour guide Sarah was very friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic.
