    Our group really enjoyed this Ghost Tour. My wife and I have gone to tours in other states but this was the first one we were able to go into the inside of the buildings that were discussed during the tour. Our guide was funny and kept the experience entertaining. We were really lucky to be able to see a rocking chair start to rock on its own during the visit into the house at the Gaslamp Quarter. We definitely would recommend others to do a tour with Haunted San Diego!

    It was a great fun experience. It was pretty good but not the best we have seen. But if your looking for something that takes less than an hour and a half of your time you will enjoy it. Cap off your old town visit with a little ghostly lore. This is mostly a history story of locals who have passed and supposedly continue to haunt the area.

    This tour was great! The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. He was also very fun and entertaining but clearly has a lot of compassion and thought for the victims that he discusses.

    This one is more for the history buffs than the ghosts fans, but a truly enjoyable experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable about multiple aspects of San Diego's and especially the gaslamp quarter's history. He talked about architecture, and the people, the businesses and how people died, the economy and of course the ghost stories. I would have given it 5 stars if we had gone into a supposedly haunted building to actually look for ghosts

    Wonderful story telling, fun stories and interesting locations. I would absolutely recommend going on this tour again. I don't want to give spoilers, but there's a lot of _spice_ on this tour.

    The history and pictures were very helpful. It was a very ambitious and helpful, bubbly and nice tour guide that really helps the experience. Also got to go into one of the buildings and explore a little bit. That was definitely fun. Awesome job would highly recommend

    Kelly was absolutely amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable and truly cares about the history of the area. As someone who has lived in San Diego for almost 5 years, it was an insightful tour with lots new and interesting facts I truly didn't know. They go above and beyond to make sure that what they are telling you is accurate as well as telling recent history (2010s) and historical history of the area. This tour is about a mile or so in total walking. I would definitely recommend and would wholeheartedly go again! Thanks Kelly!

    Kat was an amazing tour guide. She explained the history of the houses throughly. She took her time in answering questions. Kat had easy going personality, made everyone feel welcomed. We captured in our pictures many haunting sightings and felt their presence too. WE ARE PLANNING IN RETURNING SOON!

    We totally enjoyed the Embarcadero Waterfront Ghost Tour. Our tour guide (Drew) was very knowledgeable, informative, and entertaining. It's a great tour to learn about the history of the ships in the Embarcadero and the ghost that haunt them. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting San Diego!
