    Be sure to arrive at the (haunted) Speakeasy Tavern at least 10 minutes early! Your tour guide will meet you there. Look for the "Ghost Walk Austin" T-shirt or "Walking Tours of Austin" cap. If you want to come on down even earlier, the Speakeasy is a great place to grab a drink before your ghostly adventure:)!

Disappointed
So disappointed- as a group of about 20 waited and swirled- my husband called at 8:15 - oops scheduling mix up- not happening. Although owner got back to us- offered a 9:30 time- wasn’t working for us.So sad that was the only time we could do it

We’re so sorry for this inconvenience. It was a scheduling mess up on our part that wasn’t discovered until the tour was supposed to start! Of course, this should never happen and we are taking steps to make sure we always have backup guides in place. We are taking steps to refund all parties. Again, our deports apologies. Best, Jim Miles, owner

We agree, Dalen is a great storyteller and really loves Austin. At Walking Tours of Austin we pride ourselves on having Tour Guides who love the history of Austin and also are experts on local ghost lore:) please come back and see us again :-) if you liked the ghost tour you would likely LOVE murder walk Austin, where we explore Americas first serial killer!

Entertaining history
William was great. His story telling was entertaining. This is definitely more of a history tour than a ghost or haunted tour, but still very interesting.

The ghosts didn’t get us!
This started off great. Lots of interesting Austin facts with a splash of ghost story telling! Walked around the city and made stops at a few haunted spots. Things were great… UNTIL… Our guide left 6 of us behind. Left us in the Driskill Hotel. Not a horrible place to be left behind because it’s beautiful but what about the rest of the tour?!?! The guide should really make sure his group is in toe.

Wow! Well, I’m glad you enjoyed the tour up to that point. You’re right, that should never happen! I’ll look into it for sure. usually our guides give clear instructions for guests to go into the lobby, hear about the haunted tailes, and then we come straight out. Sometimes guests go off path on their own but sounds like you wanted to continue. So sorry for the inconvenience! Please come back and try us again. we promise not to leave you behind:)

Death of a Salesman
Nov 2021
Dalen (our guide) did a great job. The tour was really interesting and informative not only about the ghosts that haunt some of the local buildings, but also about some of Austin’s history in general. I personally loved the story of the Omni hotel’s spectral guest who never checked out (even after he “checked out”) Great tour… highly recommend.

I love that story too! Daelen is the only Tour Guide on our team who goes deep dive into that story, I love it! It’s a compelling ghost story. tragic, haunting, relatable, chills! I am so happy you enjoyed your tour. And, we agree Daelen is an excellent storyteller. Please come back and see you soon. Best, Jim Miles, owner, touratx.com

William did a great job! I felt like he presented only facts, and he was loud enough for everyone to hear. The walk wasn’t too strenuous, and the history of Austin was very cool to hear.

Great Tour and Tour Guide. Highly recommend William
Oct 2021 • Business
Great tour! William was our tour guide and was very animated, VERY educated about the history of all the places we were taken to and his little funnies he would throw in here and there had me laughing. He really brought the stories to life by doing that. He answered any questions anyone had about our tour and answered them in good detail. I do want to note he really knows how to project his voice well and was great at talking to the entire crowd instead of focusing and looking mostly at one part of a crowd, as sometimes that can happen and it can be easy to loose interest or become bored when your not engaged consistently, so really great crowd skills.

The tour it self has so much history and interesting facts. It’s amazing to see the Driskall hotel and it’s amazing architecture. The very end of the tour was honestly the best part, that final piece of a story and information which I will not share, you have to take the tour to find out was the coolest piece of information and I went home and started researching more information on it as he suggested. If I am ever in the area again I will definitely do the murder tour to get more information on that last story from this tour.

I also think it’s great he threw in at the start when introducing himself he attends college at the university. I can appreciate someone like that even more doing these tours/working late in the evening on a Monday and going to school knowing they likely have school in the morning. So his dedication to the job did not go unnoticed. Awesome job William!

This is such a great review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I couldn’t agree more, William is an amazing young man and a gifted storyteller. You can tell he truly cares about his job and the people on his tours. Not to mention, he’s super animated when it comes to Austin’s ghost stories :-) Look forward to seeing you on that murder tour in the future! Best, JM,touratx.com
