The mentally ill homeless...
Chad_W, Jul 2023
The mentally ill homeless guy interrupting and cursing out the tour guide was memorable. We have been on tours that were more believable and interactive. All we did was walk around and she told us stories. There was lots of references to how she feels spirits and can’t go into some places. I guess the historical part with the stories was cool, my kids are interested in that. The padres baseball game just finished, so it was pretty clustered getting around.

Walking into the old San Diego morgue was creepy and very interesting and Luna the guide lady made it so much fun
A Walk Around the Block
Audrey_A, Oct 2022
Considering I’ve never done a ghost tour, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I did expect a little more. I could have easily walked 2 blocks and Googled my own stories. We were given ghost tools to use on windows and sidewalks, I really expected we’d at least walk inside some of the buildings. Instead, the group walked a couple blocks and stopped at a handful of buildings to hear old time stories of why the building is haunted. The guide was knowledgeable for sure but I’d have definitely preferred to do something else with that 60-90mins of time.
Great experience!

Spooky History Tour

Guide was funny and very knowledgeable about the area. Two other groups were no shows, so he made it a really special night for me and my husband.

It was interesting to learn about the history of the neighborhood but the ghost hunting tools were a little cheesy
A Great Lil Ghost Tour
Bradley_K, Aug 2021
Great tour, our guide Detective D. had some great stories and anecdotes about the locations we visited in our gaslamp quarter walking tour. He provided each member of the tour with their own piece of ghost hunting equipment and it was a lot of fun!
A boo can be a good thing

Detective Drew was dynamic and entertaining. He ran a fun tour even in the 3rd of July craziness. We saw the dark side of SD lit up
