I was expecting an informative tour but all we got was this obnoxious troll of a tour guide. He was very rude and negative to people around us and in the ghost tour business. We only walked a short distance with very minimal information on the history of the locations. Martin Leal is not a people person and needs to... More

The brochure is very misleading. It says Ghost Hunt. This is NOT a Ghost Hunt it is a walking Tours of where Ghost have been seen by others and he shows you pictures and was always referring to that this was seen about a month ago. I have been on a Ghost Hunt before. Was very disappointed.

If you like to find out about where your visiting and some good ghost stories this is the tour for you. Martin does the tour himself and is wonderful. You learn alot about San Antonio scary history.

My family was vacationing in San Antonio and we had heard of some interesting ghost tours in the area. I by no means expected to see ghosts or have a scary interaction....but I did expect to hear Texas legends, myths, stories.... I expected the tour to focus on the rich history in San Antonio and tell of some of the... More

Came from out of town. Expecting a Ghost Tour but instead we got somekind of tour with lame comedy. Nothing interesting, nothing that you can't find online, No ghost hunting. We have been to other ghost tours in other cities and by far, this ghost tour in San Antonio has been the absolute worst one. Before you decide to attend... More

I have never been on such a horrible ghost tour before. What a waste of 90 minutes! The ghost meters had dead batteries and all we did was walk around the block and listen to really bad jokes. Just awful!

Alamo and River Walk are two of the most famous attractions in San Antonio. Many visitors will walk through the Alamo Shrine tha is free and have a few pictures taken, calling it done. However, it is well worth the money and time to join a guided tour and walk through the area listening to the historical story. Many visitors... More

My 8 year old and I enjoyed Mr. Leal's tour 2 nights ago. Others criticize his jokes, but without his endless comedy, the tour would be boring. Mr. Leal shares a good deal of history, ghost sightings, and trivia. A 90 min. tour for $10 is a good deal compared to the other attractions at the Alamo Plaza.

I found Mr. Leal to be homophobic, sexist and a grand phony. I was appalled at the "jokes" he made about Emily Morgan, the "Ho'-tel" named after her, and the joy he got pointing his laser (which I suspect is illegal) at the windows of the hotel (windows he declared to be located in the hotel's showers/bathrooms) so that the...

We visited San Antonio and my friend insisted we go on a ghost tour so she contacted Martin Leal about his 'ghost tour'. More like 'take your money and roam around for an hour and half learning nothing about history or the origin of supposed ghost sightings tour'. First of all it was 10 bucks. Second of all, all he...
