Welcome to Galveston Island, a cemetery as big as the island! Dig deep enough and you’ll find the bones of the ghosts that haunt the world’s deadliest isle. Built in the 1800’s, the grand historic buildings have become ghost sanctuaries for its jinxed former citizens. Constantly battered by ferocious hurricanes, Mother Nature and time have tried to erase the memories of its terrorized and horror stricken victims... that were driven to a holocaust of suicide, mass liquidation, cannibalism, and Satanism. No other place in America comes close to being as haunted as Galveston! 10,000 dead in one night. Innocent souls that suffered a sudden death and now refuse to stay dead. The coffins and ashes of the improvised crematorium can’t hold them. They are dying (again and again) to meet you!
Your ghost tour guide has left no grave stone unturned to bring haunted Galveston’s fascinating history to you. Read on and descend into the darkness that permanently shrouds the island and its history.
As we move hesitantly in a tight group on our one mile tour, perplexing shadows appear and disappear as we walk in front of the great mansions. You’ll quickly grab hands as we turn corners where black cats and nerve shattering voices await to greet us. Galveston’s dead awake to remind us that their work has been left undone. Spirits whose journey into the afterlife has been blocked by a deadly tide that will ebb and flow between believers and nonbelievers alike as we walk into unspeakable terror. After this tour, YOU’LL BE SLEEPING WITH THE LIGHTS ON… IF YOU SURVIVE!

Better than the tour I took in Transylvania... really, really, really well done! You can save your money going to Europe... you’ll find plenty of ghosts on Galveston Island.
I grew up in Eastern Europe with stories of vampires and werewolves... fairy tales compared to the Galveston ghost tours.
Our guide John put my children in a trance... they hung on every word. I’ve never seen them more attentive. They stayed glued for the entire 2 hours tour through Galveston Island. Awesome job explaining historical terms to the kids. 5 Stars and a new family tradition.
Visited a lot of places but this made me scared and happy at the same time. Tour guide is great, enjoyed every minute here.
Always the skeptic, I fact checked the tour guide as we were taking the walking tour... Right on the money. His PhD was readily apparent from the start. Even if you’re not a ghost hunter the dark side of Galveston’s history will amaze you. Worth every penny.
Interesting stories, kids enjoyed. Marc received a free passage, too.
Free! We guarantee to bury you free of charge if you die of fright during the tour
(After all - what’s one more ghost?!)
Galveston Ghost Tour escorts groups through the historic and haunted places on Galveston Island. We'll share stories about what it was like to be on the island at the turn of the century and exploring the ghosts that still remain after the greatest natural disaster in American history. The paranormal hunters will tell you ghost are made in three ways: sudden death, unfinished business, and demonic possession.
On September 8, 1900, 6000 souls lost their lives in one evening of Hurricane, making Galveston by definition the most haunted place in the United States. We take to the dark streets and alleys where ghosts have been sighted and follow them to their grand mansions in the historic Silk Stocking district. We share the oral histories that have been pasted down for generations.
Our tours are extremely informative and full of surprises. Quite often, truth is stranger than fiction. We'll make a believer out of you!

The Sealy's opened the gates to their home and saved 400 souls from the Great Flood. MR. Sealy and his wife, Magnolia died leaving an enormous fortune and a little company called Magnolia Oil, which is now Mobile Oil.
Mr. Brown died and left the bulk of his fortune and Ashton Villa to his eccentric daughter Betty, where she entertained lavishly... and still does 150 later.
Robert Durst, the billionaire came to the island dressed as a women pretending to be mute. Morris Black, his nosey neighbor found out the hard way not to pray when Robert chopped him into pieces... and got away with it.
This house tried to be built after the Great Flood but the construction workers kept falling off the scaffolding. The only man who ever liked living here is the man who brought Satanism to the island. Now it's a pilgrimage site for those who practice Voodoo, Satanism, Black Magic and Witchcraft.
Mr. Brown gave this house as a wedding present to his younger daughter, Matilda. Her abusive husband haunts this house today waiting to throw things as at visitors, while the children are captive in the attic. It's for sale... Any takers?
Galveston suffered horrendous epidemics because of all the shipping. As a result Galveston was home to a disproportionate number of orphanages, including this building, where the ghost of so many children still linger. Want to play?
