Mediocre
Stephanie_L
, Jun 2022
From my 19 year old son who I bought this for: It was alright, the guide got off topic a lot while we were walking. Talking about the placement of a stop sign that was just put there. Random dumb stuff like that. There was a huge group of little kids so we didn’t get the scariest of stuff.

We completely understand that our all-ages tours can be less exciting for individuals eager to hear the darker and more gruesome history. We appreciate this feedback, and we will use this for future improvements. If you would like, we would love to have you experience our adults-only tour so you can enjoy the more exciting and descriptive paranormal history. We would also like to offer you free tickets with a redeemable code to use in any of our cities, without expiration, in hopes to give you a much better experience.

Our quick getaway trip.

We didn’t see no ghost and learned a little more about San Antonio history. Our tour guide Jesse was amazing and fun. He has a good spirit that made this lil tour fun. Wear comfortable shoes and maybe a water bottle. My youngest son enjoyed it but I think more of the surrounding scene which was all good. Some of the history is a bit scary for young ears. We would definitely go again !

it is ok experience it would be better if there s more experience like going inside the places , i just payed to hear stories that i could search and go stand up on front of the building & i could save some money for something else

It’s extremely unfortunate your guide provided you with this type of tour. We avoid using the word "scary" to describe our tours as it is highly subjective and we certainly don't have any jump scares. However, the stories we tell on our tours are all deeply rooted in the local history, and the facts tend to be bone-chilling on their own. We appreciate all feedback, and we assure you we will use this for future tour improvement. To make up for this, we would like to offer you free tickets to use in any of our cities, without expiration, in hopes of giving you a much better experience.

I found this tour last minute because our original plans fell through. It was a great way to explore and learn about San Antonio at very fair price. The tour guide, Jesse, was pretty knowledgeable about the buildings and the history of the city as well as having his own personal experiences to share.

Too boring

Beginning of the tour started out interesting but started getting quite long. After40 minutes we move on from in front of the Alamo and the tour went downhill from there. Half the group was gone by the end of the tour.

History lesson
Joanne_K
, Oct 2021
This was more of a history lesson than a ghost tour. Chris talked for over an hour and then we had asked to stop. All 6 of us on the tour were totally bored. One guy fell asleep while we were listening to Chris. A very bad ghost tour. Would not recommend.

Our tour guide, Chris, was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable about the history of San Antonio. He gave multiple accounts of personal experiences and gave us plenty of time to take pictures and ask questions. At the end of the tour, he even gave some suggestions of other places to check out. We fully recommend having Chris as your tour guide.

Very disappointed
Ioulia_I
, Sep 2021
Nothing as described. Too much talking with very bad sound equipment so we couldn’t hear well. Not walked at all. It was almost 10:30pm and we just moved from the Alamo to the Menger Hotel. Total waste of money. My son and I were very disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend this tour.

It's very unfortunate you did not get what you expected on this tour. Not being able to hear the stories or walk to many of the hotspots is extremely unacceptable. We also completely understand that our all-ages tours can be less exciting for individuals eager to hear the darker and more gruesome history. We appreciate this feedback, and we will use this for future improvements. If you would like, we would love to have you experience our adults-only tour so you can enjoy the more exciting and descriptive paranormal history.

This is a great tour, especially with kids. It only has 4 stops so you don’t get too tired. I wish it included more history, but our guide definitely gave a lot of ghost stories.

Chris is Amazing!

When you book, be sure to request Chris. He's amazing!!! Not only is he a skillful storyteller, but he's native to San Antonio. He isn't reciting from a memorized script, but he shares personal stories of what he & family members have experienced. Highly recommended!
