What you'll do

This is a 1.5 hour walking ghost tour that is unlike any other. I show people not only what to look for on a ghost tour, but how to tour historical areas. This is truly a unique experience that stays with people. It's not just a ghost tour, it really is an experience into the paranormal and past
We typically get evidence every night. I show some of the collection of paranormal evidence I've collected over time on the tour as well

Welcome. I'm Al, "the professor". I've been a paranormal investigator for the past five years. Before that i was a high school teacher for 12 years. I research history and people of Galveston daily.

The stories, historic homes, and evidence i show are a big reason why people have often said this is "the best ghost tour they have ever been on."

Where you'll be

The Ghost tour begins with the first ever home built in the area, the Ashton Villa. We then visit the Virginia point inn, famous for the its haunted YouTube videos from the 1990s. We visit the John Brown haunted church and the Victorian 1884 Poltergeist house. The tour explores the landmark home of Olga Smaroff, forever creepy. Then we investigate the Civil War haunted inn from 1860. The tour finishes with the scary 26 room Charles Smith.

Super friendly guy! I was with a large crowd and make sure everyone was safe crossing the street & everyone could here him. There was other ghost tours and I am happy I got Al. Al didn’t play up stories and he told his own personal experiences.
