We had an awesome experience. Our tour guide, Jim, was very knowledgeable, personable, and overall a chill guy. Very good story teller, even for those who don’t believe in ghosts. Highly recommend!

I’ve been on several ghost tours across the US and I’d say bang for the buck, this guide killed it! I brought my 1st grader son who is infatuated with oddities and he cannot stop talking about our experience. He keeps asking when we can go again. Our guide was super energetic and kind to us with the million questions and comments he threw at her. A+

Here at Walking Tours of Austin we love our city and we know that it’s our guests that make it all worth while!! Thanks again, and greetings to our favorite 1st grader;) Best, Jim Miles, touratx.com

We had Mabel as our tour guide and she was amazing! She is very enthusiastic and told us stories in such an exciting way. We were all really intrigued by her stories and the locations we walked to that we forgot about how cold and rainy it was last night! Would recommend to friends and family who decide to visit

Just ok...

Just “ok”. For a quite seasoned haunted and history tour taker I have to say we were quite disappointed. We’ve taken over a dozen tours (most recently 3 in the past month in Savannah) and over a dozen the past 2 years in New Orleans, Austin, Williamsburg, and other cities. This was not the most exciting tour and the facts a little off. It’s not that this took place during Covid, but there was definitely a lackluster to the tour. Our guide was sweet, but there something missing that could have added excitement.
