Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the tour due to a tire blowout while on my way there. I read on the website that there are no refunds or reschedules which is a shame because I really wanted to go.

People on the street joined in without paying and the group went from 15 to over 20. Plus it was so hot outside and the extra people made it worse.

Definitely not Ghost Tours of Galveston. The guide uses pictures on her computer to demonstrate ghost activity. There was absolutely nothing scary about it. I recommend you get the book "Ghosts of Galveston" and explore on... More

Only one of the buildings that I remember, but it happened to be the one with the most paranormal activity. The name of the building escapes my memory.
