“Weird wonderful”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Visiting the US from England, we had heard of this city full of weird - Austin. Thought we'd have a look around and discovered Haunted ATX. Chris was our guide and he was fantastic, never thought I'd get to ride in the back of a hearse with my eyes open, and what a machine. Great local insights from Chris and awesome spooky stories and sights. Definitely recommend

“Not good at all”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I love tours, especially ghost tours. You get to see a "darker" side of cities that way. However, this was a pretty terrible tour. The guide was extremely nice and lovely, which is the reason I gave it 2 stars. Essentially, we had to sit in the very back of the hearse (there were people in the front seats) so we saw NOTHING. There was no other place to sit, so we had to try to peer out of the little slits in the back which had no visibility. Getting in and out of the hearse was really uncomfortable, and over all it was really boring. The stories were just so-so. While our guide was very sweet his stories were very uninteresting. Had we been able to see it could have been better, but in my opinion you could have a much better time elsewhere.

Hello Rebekah

We apologize that you did not enjoy our tour. We understand that the windows in the back of our Hearse are small and can be a little difficult to see out of, but please understand that our hearse did not come with those windows and we had to install them ourselves. We are in the process of getting that solved. We also understand that getting in and out of our Hearse can also be a little difficult but Hearse's were made to lay down in and not sit up right. With that said riding in the back of a Hearse upright is a big plus, and an experience that most people do not get to enjoy.

We thank you for your review and please know that this does help us to make our tour better.

“Fun, entertaining, and interesting”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

First of all you are going to have fun riding around in the cool hearse! Second he knows his history, his ghosts and experiences. But most of all you saw things on the tour you wouldn't normally see visiting a city. The combo was great. Plus we all had way to much fun waving from a hearse!

“AMAZING! Such a blast!!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was probably the most fun I've EVER had! Chris kept our interest, allowed us to move at our own pace, and made the tour fun AND creepy! It was awesome riding around in a hearse and he really knows a LOT about the area. I was worried that the hearse would be uncomfortable and small, but we had plenty of room and were quite comfortable. Highly recommend this!!

“Disappointing view from the back seat”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I want to write a glowing review of this tour because it's such a cool idea and our guide was a nice guy, but the truth is we saw almost nothing. The back seats have only a tiny window, the top of which is shoulder height. We bent and leaned and slouched but still saw little. If you take the tour make sure you sit in the front.
