Dash did our tour. First of all let me say I don’t believe in ghosts. However, going on these tours is a great way of getting alternative history. Galveston has so much history and this was a fun way to experience it. It helped I...More

We were told great things about this tour. Unfortunately the tour was overbooked with at least 40 people as part of the tour. You could not hear anything Dash was saying. We left half way through the tour.

Our guide, Dash, was very ill-equipped to deliver an interesting and exciting evening. His stories lacked detail. He couldn't finish thoughts and sentences. His sound equipment/microphone was very inadequate. Our group had a difficult time hearing him. We stopped at two stores and had to...More

Host appeared to be knowledgeable about the history of Galveston but lost his train of thought often. Still learned some facts about the island’s past.

We went on Halloween and there were a few in our group dressed up. Dash was the best with his knowledge of history and with pictures too. Well worth the price, we definitely got our two hours worth.

Yes, a walking tour, but many stops while the guide speaks. The sidewalks are level except for a few spots. I took my flashlight because I'm afraid of falling. I had no trouble at all. The guide kept us aware of any bumps... More
