In the 90-minute Ghosts & Legends of San Antonio tour, storyteller Randy introduces groups to southern Texas's spooky folklore during a nearly one-mile jaunt past regional landmarks. Departing nightly at 9 p.m. from the gazebo adjacent to the Menger Hotel, tours glide past the stomping grounds of the terrifying Donkey Lady, the wailing La Llorona, and the less intimidating Ouija Canyon. As the historical and cultural narrative draws to a close, the ghoulish evening wraps up with a visit to unmarked graves on the Alamo's hallowed grounds.
Guests of all ages are welcome on this family-friendly tour. Children 10 and younger are free.
Ghosts & Legends of San Antonio
History books chronicle the happenings of politicians and leaders of a country, state, or city, but a folklorist shares the stories and lives of the people who made a community what it is. In the Ghosts & Legends tours—a series of tales about the local and infamous—Randy Felts weaves a blend of south Texas history and tall tales that date back up to 500 years.
Randy loves a good ghost story, but what he loves even more is sharing a good ghost story. As a USA Today writer puts it, “Felts likes to emphasize history, culture and drama rather than ghost hunting,” which is further exemplified by his lack of paranormal investigative equipment on each nightly tour.
History books chronicle the happenings of politicians and leaders, but a folklorist shares the stories and lives of the regular people who made a community what it is. During his new History & Heroes of San Antonio tour, guide Randy Felts introduces guests to an eclectic cast of characters, from the Alamo's David Crockett to residents of the 300-year-old village of La Villita. As tours progress along the roughly mile-long path, his words weave together true facts and tall tales, cluing visitors into the fanciful history that has come to define South Texas.
