About
The stories that you’ll hear as we venture on our 1½ hour walking Ghost Tour, past the gilded mansions and palaces are only whispered about on Galveston. People here are too afraid to open a dialog with the dead… afraid to unlock the gates of hell. We’ll unravel the horrible, scary secrets that lurk inside the ghost sanctuaries… secrets kept for the past 150 years! We have researched stacks of photographs and letters from those who won’t stay dead! We dive warily into the haunted past and uncover the reasons why this unstoppable paranormal force still grips the island. Bring your garlic, crosses and silver bullets as we descend into the ghost hunt darkness. This Ghost tour is for believers and nonbelievers alike. You’ll turn from skeptic to ghost hunter and learn about Galveston’s unparalleled and fascinating paranormal history along way. This tour is appropriate for all ages. But beware, you may have to run fast… very fast to escape the clutches of the ghosts.

While my favorite part of the tour was the black cat, the whole tour was fun! I appreciate Michael, who overcame the distraction of all of the Motorcycles, and his sense of humor. He did a great job. It was fun and I would do other tours that are offered just not during the bike rally! thank you!

My boyfriend and I took the ghost tour of Galveston on August 26, Noelle was our tour guide. She did an awesome job giving us the dark paranormal history of each location, we even had the opportunity to tour the inside of one of the mansions.
My favorite location was the Ashton Villa, loved the story about Bette, lavish lifestyle and US Army General Gordon Granger, announcing in 1863 the Emancipation Proclamation was in effect.
Thanks Noelle for making the tour exciting and informative.

Wow! Thank you for such an incredible review. I'm glad Michael is doing a great job. Matter of fact he was in the middle of moving when I asked him to come take the tour. Maybe he was glad I asked him to get out of it LOL we're glad you had a good time and we hope to see you again soon

The historical background was interesting. The walk was reasonable. Microphone would have been helpful at times where it was difficult to hear over traffic. Overall an enjoyable experience.

A wonderful Galveston experience! Even if you don’t believe in ghosts, I highly suggest this tour because it still gives you much insight to Galveston history and culture. We loved the guided walking tour and learning “fun facts” about the area. Our guide was very knowledgable and informed. It was quite the experience!

Our tour guide Greg was great at guiding! The stories were fun, and a little spooky but still family friendly. Lots of personal stories as well as old history, Galveston is a pretty cool place!
