The Madames and Mayhem Ghost Tour is San Antonio's ONLY Adults-Only Ghost Tour.

San Antonio was once known as the Brothel Capitol of America. The events which took place at these seedy establishments caused more than a few ghosts to pop up in modern day San Antonio. This ghost tour tells the story of those men and woman.

We'll take you to the Most Haunted Places in historic San Antonio

Here at Ghost City, we like pushing the envelope, offering tourists and locals alike a chance to join our Guides and journey into areas of San Antonio which are not always the places where tourists dare to venture. All of the locations we visit on our Ghost Tours are carefully choosen and researched.

Telling the true story about our ghosts and hauntings is the backbone of Ghost City. We don't stoop to telling stories about Vampires, Zombies, or other nonsense. However, you will hear the authentic haunted history of San Antonio, our locals legends and folklore, and first-hand accounts of hauntings.

The Alamo, one of San Antonio's most haunted locations

The Alamo

Perhaps the most historically significant building in San Antonio, the Alamo is famous around the World for the battle which took place here. It is also pretty famous for its ghosts.

You'll hear the stories of Patriots who gave their lives in defense of the Alamo - and who we think is still haunting the Alamo today. While we do not go inside of the Alamo on our tours, the Alamo was much bigger than the walls suggest.

The Menger Hotel, the Hotel which many people consider the most haunted Hotel in San Antonio

The Menger Hotel

While Charleston is known as the Holy City, not all of her history has been so clean and moral. Chalmer's Street was once home to numerous brothels and other seedy establishments.

Luckily for us, most of those locations left behind the ghosts of the people who were involved with those dark deeds. We'll often make a stop on Chalmer's Street so that you can hear about the less 'Holy' side of Charleston.

The Spanish Governor's Palace

It seems like every old city has at least one haunted theatre - and Charleston is no different. For decades, rumors of ghosts and other paranormal activity have been coming from the Dock Street Theatre.

During the day you may catch a show but at night the theatre comes alive with a different kind of performance. That is when the ghosts come out and interact with the living.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our 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 Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. Our San Antonio Ghost Tours are all walking tours. Here in San Antonio, we know that there are a few non-walkings tours, like Ghost Carriage Tours and Bus Tours. While some of those are good options, we still feel that the best way to get to know the ghosts of . city is on foot..

In order to actually FEEL the energy which our ghosts give off you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Some areas of San Antonio which we visit can be seriously spooky! We feel that THIS is the best way to explore the haunted history of San Antonio.

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell.
  • Walking is good for you, and it is a great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • You're not crammed into a vehicle or bus,, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against.

Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?

Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are companies which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. And 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.

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 or buidlings, like the Alamo. Obviously the residents or business owners 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?

All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.

However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time, as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.

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.

  • Ages 0-5: We do not charge anything for anyone 5 or under. They get to attend our tours for free!
  • Ages 6-11: This is considered a child ticket as defined by the city of San Antonio.
  • Ages 12+: This age range is considered an adult ticket.

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.
