We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Very impressed by the knowledge of our guide, Raven. He answered questions and made it fun. We would definitely do this again or any tour hosted by Raven.

Definitely not Ghost Tours of Galveston. The guide uses pictures on her computer to demonstrate ghost activity. There was absolutely nothing scary about it. I recommend you get the book "Ghosts of Galveston" and explore on... More
