“Arrogant & Rude”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A group of 4 of us took this tour on Saturday the May 25th, 2013. The guide was very confident of himself, but quite arrogant and rude. He insulted an attorney friend in our party on three different occasions during the evening, at one point calling him an "Ugly bald old man". His facts about John Wilkes Booth involvement in Granbury history had major conflicts with the information presented by the television show "Monumental Mysteries", and near the end of the tour, he described the "face on the bar room floor" (a famous attraction in Central City Colorado) as being in Greeley Colorado. He prided himself as quite a knowledgable hisorian and author, (hawking his upcoming book at several occasions) but his credibility in his knowledge were suspect, and his manner and rudeness was shocking.

“Not for ghost hunters but good historical info”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed the hour walking tour of Granbury's square. Our tour guide, Boots, was very knowledgable about the area. If you want to learn about Granbury's spooky history this is great; if you want EVPs and ghost hunting equipment you'll be disappointed. We had a groupon so admission was $5 so it was worth the drive. We definitely got our money's worth! If you are a history buff, I would definitely recommend it!

“Depends on your guide if the tour is interesting or not”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We as a family group went and the first gentleman was very interesting and we had a great time. So the next time company came we took them. The lady only read the plaques and we didn't go off the square as before. It wasn't anything like the first tour. The man told so many stories and if the lady had told the same stories or really any stories we would have taken more company when they visited. I won't be going on another one unless I can find out who will be the guide before the tour. The first time I told everyone how fun it was but will not recommend again. I did notice that they have gone up in price and I hope that means they have finally gotten megaphones or something to make it easier to hear with traffic going by as other ghost tours have.

Enjoyed taking a tour and learning the rich history of Granbury Texas. Also interesting to learn about the possible ghosts that exist in the town.

“Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

It was touted to us as being a ghost tour. For a ghost tour, it was hugely disappointing. We were guaranteed to see two ghosts. Well if you can count a cut out in a window and a statue in the square, then you will be able to say you saw a ghost or two. What we did get was a lot of stories of little girls falling out of 2nd story windows (it would seem that gravity just doesn't like female children in this town).

What it was closer to was an one hour questionable history tour. When I say questionable, it would seem that every notorious person in history has been in Granbury - Jesse James, John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde and John Wilkes Booth after his assassination of President Lincoln. Yes, you are told to disregard what history has for facts and believe that both Jesse James and John Wilkes Booth chose to live under anonymous names in the same small town of Granbury. I can't believe that movie writers haven't been all over this.

It is a pretty little square and nice little stores keeping the tone. However, the local traffic made it hard to hear our guide who didn't project his voice very well. We were able to hear him tell us to shop in this store and eat in this restaurant.

The only way I recommend this tour is if you are stuck in Granbury and extremely bored.
