Ghost Tours Texas

The ghastly guides of Ghost Tours Texas lead groups of foolhardy interlopers on story-filled journeys past the spectrally inhabited landmarks of Galveston and Houston Heights. On the Galveston tour, a knowledgeable leader takes parties through the Silk Stocking District to visit the 1858 Ashton Villa mansion, whose second floor is occupied by the phantom “Miss Betty” Brown, and whose basement is occupied by a man who years ago forgot how to work a doorknob. The guide also divulges tales told from eyewitness accounts.

The Houston Heights tour winds through the area's historical and opulent homes, exploring such mysteries as the story of the Dean Correl murders and the children who are said to still haunt the alleyways of Houston Heights. Guides weave tales of ghostly possessions and evil voodoo dolls peppered with real-life testimonies from local residents.

My friends and I had a great time for the Groupon price, but agreed that we might have felt overcharged at the regular, asking price.

The tour itself was great and very informative. I do think that the poor guide needed help having everyone sign the waivers and collecting money before the tour. She was quite overwhelmed and clearly needed help at the very beginning with this. Some patrons became impatient and it was really not her fault. I had a a great time overall.

The tour guide was a very good story teller! I enjoyed listening to him about the history of the houses we went too & some of Galveston's history as well. :)
