Fun but not great.

The hostess made it fun, but not exceptional by any means. Some of the stories were not accurate but still enjoyable for entertainment. I was a little more interested in the history. I was just hoping it was a little more factual. I'm not unhappy about going on this tour, it was still fun.

Thanks for bringing this up Tonya. We do our best to be as historically accurate as possible yet history is a bit slippery. Did you know that the Whaley House changed a bunch of it historical stories about a year ago? The Horton house has revised their history as well. We've heard disagreements between the experts who cover the Horton Grand about what happened there and the Villa has modified it's stories over time. Some of these updates have been pretty significant and we have seen many over the years. When we learn the "new or currently true", stories we update our script. We do this when ever we hear a new truism. Yes there is an entertainment aspect as well which we mention in our introduction to the tour. However, please know that to our core stories we try our best to be "accurate" as possible given the information we get from the historians. If you have a source with the accurate stories please reach out to us, we strive to be a factual as possible. Thanks Tonya. Appreciate it and you!

It was interesting; tour guide stayed in character; kind of hokey - but fun. The description of the event indicated we would go into a couple of buildings - however, we only went into one and it was the last one.

Good day Karen - Glad you had a fun time and apologies our description was misleading. Since other may read your review I want to make it clear here. You should have gone to 5 and entered 3 locations. 1. The Horton Grand Hotel - we do a presentation in the Lobby and Bar Area though a couple of the haunted rooms are always reserved so we don't have access to those. 2. The Davis Horton house which you enter and is my favorite location on the tour, considered by the SD Ghost Hunters as the most currently active location in SD proper. 3. You should have enter the Old Town graveyard and heard the stories among the tombstones though that is not a building. The other two locations you go on the premise but do not enter, The Whaley House (has it's own tour and specializes just in that) and The Villa Montezuma (which we are working on entering soon). I take your feedback to heart and will make a task to go back in the description and make it clear, a hotel, a house and the graveyard. Hopefully that will fix it. Deep apologies for not being more clear for you. We have a satisfaction guarantee - feel free to reach out to us via our website if you'd like to take advantage of that. Appreciate it and you.
