Came to visit Austin for a concert, had an extra day in town and decided to do a little walk-history tour. While the group could have been a little smaller, the guide was great, very professional, knowledgeable and fun. Great stories!

Just hearing about other people’s experience in seeing ghost and learning a little history. It would have been cool to experience a ghost. I don’t believe in them. I just do the tours for fun and to learn the history on places
