Austin: Haunted History Ghost Tour

1. Austin: Haunted History Ghost Tour

On this ghost tour you will visit haunted locations such as The Omni Hotel, the William Sidney Porter House, and the Museum of the Weird, among countless oddball restaurants and vintage shops.  Austin has a unique way of encouraging eccentric behavior with its infamous element of the weird. The history of the capital of Texas offers shocking stories of forbidden lovers, heartbreaking suicides, brutal murders, and freak accidents.  Some of the ghosts you may encounter on this historic ghost tour are playful and harmless, but others are quite wicked and have committed some horrific crimes in their lifetimes. Stroll through hotspots in the "City of Bats" on this ghost tour and explore the dark side of the city's charming downtown streets. You’ll not only visit the most haunted places in town, but also discover the history that lives on in each building.  Keep your cameras ready because some pretty spooky footage has been captured on some of these expeditions. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the suicide brides roaming around the Driskill, or witness the legendary "Man with the Cigar" who thoughtfully paces around the Paramount Theatre.  Loads of tall tales will skim the surface of Austin’s history, but you will also hear true stories that have been thoroughly fact-checked and researched.

Paul and Cody were fantastic tour guides. Paul was extremely knowledgeable and proud to be living in Austin. We saw some cool spots we would not have normally seen or even know to go to so that was cool. I highly recommend them both.

Would recommend this tour. Great overview of the city from an insider’s point of view. Easy ride for all biking skill levels.

Jacob was knowledgeable and thorough as he showed us the city and parks. We really enjoyed his company.

Paul was excellent - kept us informed, entertained and SAFE. Great experience!

So fun! Great way to start our 3 day visit to Austin.
