The guide is easy to hear( she wore a microphone) and tells you a lot about the 5 or so neighborhood places that are not on the Strand. I didn't see anything spooky but architectarally speaking, the houses are interesting. The walk is easy but...continued

The tour guide wasn't funny at all and when she would stop for dramatic pauses to ask if it was scary, all she heard was crickets. It wasn't scary at all.

Description

Tour highlights include:

- Step through the darkness and investigate the chilling location where a man was kept hostage for an entire night by a female ghost.

- Take a chance to see the lovely red-headed, ”Miss Betty” Brown who still “lives” at the vintage 1858 Ashton Villa mansion. She’s been photographed staring out of the second floor window through the curtains. Bring your camera!

- Discover why Capt. Mott’s apparition is regularly seen in the attic. Could he be hiding the horrific murders committed by his son?

- Explore the vivid details of the 1900 Great Storm’s night of terror, when a brave mother selflessly dragged bodies from the savage waters over her second floor balcony.

- Visit Galveston’s last bordello. Why does that prominent insurance man’s spirit still lurk in the bedrooms at night?

This fascinating walking tour was designed by fifth-generation Galvestonian, Jan Johnson based on eye-witness accounts of paranormal occurrences. A talented writer and award-winning tour guide, Jan published the book Walking Historic Galveston: A Guide to its Neighborhoods. She inserts a flare for the dramatic as she weaves her tantalizing tales, causing REAL spine-tingling chills.
