We're not just a Ghost Tour company - we're a team of people who love ghost hunting and exploring the paranormal.
Before opening our Ghost Tours in Galveston, the team here at Ghost City Tours spent months researching the most haunted places in Galveston. This meant many weeks of reading books, doing research, conducting interviews, and much more. What this means for you is that when you choose Ghost City Tours, you hear the true story of the ghosts and paranormal activity in Galveston. You'll also hear about the eerie history of Galveston and our local legends and folklore.
We've never been a company that just goes to other locations other Ghost Tour companies visit. We enjoy finding those hidden locations that not everyone knows about, creating an experience that you can only get from Ghost City Tours. We still visit some of the more well-known haunted locations on our Galveston Ghost Tours. Many of them are featured on television shows like Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters.
One of the most well-known haunted locations in Galveston, the Moody Mansion is always a favorite for our guests on our Ghost Tours. The tale of the tragic history of this location has a way of reeling people in.
While we don't tour inside of the Moody Mansion (you can do that during the day), hearing the stories of the Moody family and their hauntings will encourage you to come back for more.Read more about the Haunted Moody Mansion
Every haunted city needs a good haunted cemetery - and Galveston doesn't disappoint! The Broadway Cemetery is one of the most popular places for our Ghost Tours.
Every once in a while, someone will report seeing a ghost, shadow person, or some other apparition floating through the Broadway Cemetery,Read more about the Ghosts of Broadway Cemetery.
One of the most haunted houses in Galveston also happens to be one of the most famous houses. The Bishops Palace has long been rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of Galveston's past. So it only makes sense you can find a Ghost Tour company talking about it.Read more about the haunted Bishops Palace.
We understand that you may have some questions about our Galveston Ghost Tours - and you don't want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.
Are these walking tours?
ALL of our Galveston Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. You do have other options such as Trolley Ghost Tours. To FEEL the energy that our ghosts give off, you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Imagine walking through a haunted alley with all of the lights out or standing at the place where ghosts are seen. Are you already feeling the tingles up your spine?
Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?
Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are Ghost Tour companies in Galveston which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. If you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting, you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets.
We know that our experiences are of the highest quality, with thousands of 5-star reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed them. Also, we often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.
Does Ghost City Tours offer Trolley or Carriage Ghost Tours?
There are a few options to take a ghost tour by vehicle. In Galveston, you can choose from a Trolley Ghost Tour or even in a horse-drawn carriage.
If you're interested in taking one of these trolley ghost tours or a hearse ghost tour, you'll have to go to those companies' websites and buy from them. We believe that walking tours are the best way to experience paranormal activity in Galveston.
We understand that you may have your heart set on riding around the haunted streets of Galveston in a Trolley, but you cannot do this from Ghost City. If you want a paranormal experience that is truly spooky, Ghost City is the way to go.
Is this a Ghost Tour where we go into Haunted Places?
Some locations allow us to come in; most don't. Many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously, the residents would not be happy about us coming into their homes. Therefore, we do not go into most of the locations we visit.
Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?
You can reschedule your Ghost Tour, or receive a complete refund, if you do so at least 24 hours prior to the start of your Tour. After that, all sales are final. If you need assistance, please call us at 855-999-9026.
For your family ghost tours, what is the age of a child?
When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.
Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ or 21+ only. For those tours, there is only one ticket type you can choose from.
What days of the week are your Ghost Tours available for?
All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour, Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.
