Hi. Welcome. I'm a paranormal and historical researcher. If you want spooky stories this may not be for you. I take people to paranormal active areas that i research for an authentic experience. This isn't a ghost tour. It goes beyond that. 1075 TOURS LATER i still enjoy sharing this with people who appreciate real history & real paranormal stuff. This paranormal experience looks towards anything strange science can't easily explain along with history. If you need tickets or want to request a private tour, please message. Thanks. I have and continue to keep my tour authentic only using info from my personal paranormal experiences and from common knowledge history. All info beyond factual history is my personal creation, my personal accounts, collective evidence created since business inception and my sole creative physical & intellectual property. I will help you try to get your own evidence. I'm passionate about that too.

Their spirits are lurking in the shadows, alleys, staircases and stalk THE STRAND every day! The historic 19th century buildings on THE STRAND have become ghost sanctuaries. And the ghosts inside are just dying to meet you. Join us on our 90 minute walking tour as we explore the fascinating paranormal happenings on the strand, the original street of horror. Hurricanes, war, fire, and epidemics! The pirate Jean Lafitte even turned the island into a den of thieves. Galveston has more ghosts than any other city in U.S. Walking in the night, translucent figures will float by the windows. Shadows will suddenly appear and objects move of their own accord as we huddle closer to one another for are mutual protection. We never know what’s waiting for us around the corners. Beware and be scared! After all Galveston is nothing but “a cemetery with a beach attached.”
