Tour takers convene for a 90-minute phenomena-laden walkabout on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at 9 p.m. with an additional 11 p.m. tour available May 23 through September 2. Seasoned ghost hunter Michael Brown leads walkers through 13 haunted sites in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, ending up in the cemetery at the opposite end of Old Town. Michael also grants guests a chance to experience what he calls an energy vortex—energy hovering above the ground—before passing around trophies from his hunts, including photos and recordings of electronic voice phenomena (EVPs), some of which include beyond-the-grave takeout orders.
San Diego Ghost Tours
The heavy stillness of night hangs over Old Town’s cemetery, the air silent and thick with a nervous, uneasy energy. A group of people has gathered here in the quiet, and stands seemingly motionless amid the graves, their outlines rendered almost indistinguishable thanks to the moonless sky. At the center of this group, experienced ghost hunter Michael Brown holds out his EMF meter that, after a second of inactivity, displays an unusual reading⎯alerting the onlookers that it senses a ghost is near.
This spooky sojourn is just another day on the job for Michael, who leads two ghost tours through Old Town four evenings a week. Intent on introducing believers and nonbelievers alike to the area’s paranormal activities, he bolsters equipment-based communications with the spirit world with tales amassed from his own experiences ghost hunting for 13 years. Public ghost tours give intrepid groups a chance to experience unsettling phenomena—such as a local energy vortex in which energy hovers above the ground—as they wend through haunted locales and ghosts' favorite picnic areas. Michael’s private ghost-hunting tours arm each brave soul with an EMF meter as they embark upon specter-tracking expeditions.

“A fun little walk thru Old Town and the cemetery. You will be exposed to a bit of history and some ghost stories (photos and video at the end.) Wear warm clothing if expecting chilly weather. We did it on warm Spring night and a light jacket did the trick nicely. Our guide was open and friendly and open to questions at all times. Thanks Michael!”
