Fearless tour guides at Ghostly Tours in History lead adventurers deep into haunted locales such as the Horton Grand Hotel and Petco Park, recounting spooky histories and conducting séances to commune with spirits. At the Horton Grand, two hotels have been restored and reconstructed as a single, mega-haunted unit, and an old-time gambling hall and brothel ooze with sordid history. During the one-hour tours, guides operate a ghost phone in order to communicate with the dead and order ghoulish pizzas. As the night winds down, tour takers find themselves in the former red-light district, humming with contemporary revelers and the spirits of partiers past.
