Historians and actors team up with ghost hunters wielding contemporary paranormal equipment to captain Ghostly Tours in History. Jumping off from Horton Grand Hotel at Fourth and Island Avenues or George's on Fifth, the PG-rated Gaslamp walking tour leads patrons through the once-seedy back streets of San Diego. A sinister cityscape will emerge amid stories of a famous gambler, a gunman's hangout, and the secrets of Chinatown and its portentously misspelled fortune cookies. Explore the enigmatic origins of Petco Park and one of the Stingaree's most infamous brothels as patrons drink in 60-plus minutes of spine-chilling tales rooted in historical fact. Guides direct shutterbugs toward apparition hotspots to assist customers in ensnaring phantoms and photo-bombing shadows on film. The tour ends at a local bar, where spooked-out patrons can trade ominous tales and underdeveloped Polaroids.

Ghostly Tours in History

Ghostly Tours in History's passionate guides unlock a portal to the paranormal, leading visitors to haunted and eerie sites around San Diego's Old Town district and Gaslamp Quarter. Depending on the tour, stops include Victorian mansions, the Whaley House, known graveyards, and even unknown graveyards, below which lie the bodies of restless souls. Featured on both the Travel Channel and the Fodor’s Top 400, the company offers walking tours as well as bus and limousine tours for guests tired from giving their assigned ghost a piggyback ride.

In keeping with the historical nature of the tours, each guide dons a period costume and alter ego, ranging from reformed vagabonds to pioneering entrepreneur cowboys. In reality, the cast of guides is equally as diverse, encompassing trained actors, students, a Navy serviceman, and past and present members of the San Diego Historical Society.
