Spooky Tour of Downtown Austin
Bill_B
, Jan 2022
The tour was full of creepy paranormal tales and fascinating historical stories. It included everything from the contemporary Omni Hotel to 19th century hotels and watering holes. Our guide, Jennifer, kept things lively and interesting with shared experiences of her own paranormal investigations. I had a January Tour and it gets quite chilly at night; dress warmly and you'll be comfortable. A great overview of Austin History. Recommended!

It was fun learning about all of the little ghost stories about places in downtown Austin. I like that the guide shared the stories and also some personal experiences with some of the paranormal life. The tour was just the right length. Would recommend for any interested in history or paranormal activities!

Gloria was great! Keep an eye out for the ghost lady!

Our tour guide Gloria and her dog Athena were FABULOUS! The tour was very informative and we went to quite a few different locations. There were a couple parties in our group who didn't really understand what a walking ghost tour entails (like you know, walking) and their complaining was a little disrespectful but our guide took it like a champ and gave the rest of us a great tour, I would definitely recommend it! A few things to consider, this is a tour in an area with a lot of homeless people as well as people bar hopping and your guide is not responsible for the behavior of anyone who is not on your tour. I would also not bring small children along because the subject matter is heavy, there was a family in our group that brought a child that was waaaay too young to be hearing some of these stories. Hauntings don't usually come from happy events so keep that in mind. ALSO! We caught what looks like a shadowy ghost lady in a window during our walk, it was very spooky.

I've been on a few ghost tours but my friend had not been on any so this was a real treat! Daylen was such a great guide and I was very impressed that he had only been giving the tours for a few weeks since he was very well versed and informative. 10/10 would recommend!

Our tour guide was super nice and informative, very friendly and spoke up to the best of her ability while in the loud streets. Also added a little lantern on her backpack so we could follow her if we were to get lost.
