Taking a friend on a ghost tour is sure to frighten them more than traditional scare tactics such as showing them a horror movie or screaming "boo!" while painted head to toe in Wite-Out. Save office supplies for the office with today's Groupon: for $35, you get the Graveyards Only! bus tour for two from Ghostly Tours in History (a $70 value). Tours are held Thursday and Friday at 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Ghostly Tours in History’s retinue of historians and actors leads chill-seekers on a shuttled jaunt through some of San Diego’s eeriest burial grounds. Kicking off at Café Coyote, the PG-rated Graveyards Only! bus tour transports patrons to four of the city’s six-feet-under playgrounds, daring them to search for spectral appearances and ghosts who have misplaced their sheets. Leading travelers through current graveyards or areas where the dead lie undocumented below, the tour builds up a view of San Diego’s deathly past, letting guests spend two hours tip-toeing through the permanent rest stops. Guides also direct shutterbugs toward apparition hotspots to assist customers in ensnaring phantoms and photo-bombing shadows on film. An air-conditioned shuttle transports guests between each hallowed haunting ground, allowing them to cool their heels before getting their spines re-tingled.

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.

Husband,9yoa daughter and I LOVED this tour! Just enough scary for daughter and just enough history for husband, lots of pretty architecture and enjoyable walk for me. Our guide was a blast and we will definitely be doing it again!
