You can tell when someone is bored with their job when they don't even seem interested in it themselves any more. Hard to get the group excited when the host is rambling off, losing his place, even needing to be reminded where they were when...More

It’s honestly just a bunch of cool ghost stories and a small tour all wrapped up in one. I enjoyed our tour guide, he was very energetic and passionate about what he was doing.

Mr. Beardsley did not appear to be prepared at all. His presentation was very disjointed. His overall command of the information was lacking. Why he chose to present the Tremont story outside of the loudest bar is way beyond my understanding. This tour is touted...More

I have now been on 3 separate ghost tours with Dash Beardsley's business and my husband and I have never been disappointed! Our most recent tour was the Restless Spirits tour. Charles was AMAZING and even told us he wasn't

This tour is a bore. The audio was terrible and the stories were dull. The only scary thing about the tour was the fact that I actually paid for it.

Bought as gift for stepdaughter and her husband. They talked until 2am that night after the tour. They smoke cigars and drink so the finish stop was perfect.

“Dash” is a bit different and talked just as much about 70’s music as he did the subject matter of the tour. Spent the last hour with him walking around holding a tablet showing pictures of “ghost animals”.. We did stop and have an “adult...More

Definitely not Ghost Tours of Galveston. The guide uses pictures on her computer to demonstrate ghost activity. There was absolutely nothing scary about it. I recommend you get the book "Ghosts of Galveston" and explore on... More
