Didi was our guide for the night and she was spectacular! Hearing the history and what makes each place haunted was awesome! Didi mentioned that the hotel we were staying at had it own haunted history but we didn’t hear the story. I’m glad too! I’ll research when I get home because I really don’t want to know while I’m staying there! You definitely need to do this tour if you’re in San Antonio!

It was a quiet tour which meant it was just me and my wife. We had a great time hearing all the stories and getting spooked out!! Thanks so much!!

Had an absolute lovely experience! Very fun and very laid back. A lot of cool information I’m going to have to do more research on late!

Great way to learn about SA history and just the right amount of spooky. Our guide Megan was excellent.

A lot of walking obviously, but very fun and interesting!
