Very dissapointed...tour person canceled just before time to begin! We were waiting for that n didnt happen!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
I'm so sorry for the inconvenience last night. John the pirate twisted his ankle on the previous tour. Got particular ancle was smashed about 6 months ago during a motorcycle accident so it was very painful. He was referring some people to our other tour. And then I arranged for another tour guide to take that tour. I'm not sure if you went to the other tour and we're disappointed or fail to meet the substitute tour guide. Either way I'm sorry you were disappointed. Please call me and I'll arrange for a immediate refund John 8322450492

Lots of history

Mixed reviews from my crew. The adults loved it! 12 year old was bored, 16 year old was kinda of interested and 19 year old loved it also. Captain John was one of the highlights, he had lots of knowledge and told the stories with great enthusiasm. The one building we went in, mom & I saw shadows in the window which did not look natural and my kids swear they felt something weird up on the 3rd floor! Lots of history on this Island!

Well I'm glad the adults loved it. Sorry we couldn't capture your son's interest. Thank you for the review we hope to see you again soon

Pirate John’s Ghost Tour - Spooky and Fun!
Sarah_D
, Oct 2021
Pirate John was a fantastic tour guide! He is a gifted story teller and we learned a lot about the Galveston Hurricane. Our group was three small children and three adults, and the tour really was excellent for all ages. Pirate John entertained the kids with pirate jokes and chances to earn pirate’s gold. When my five year old work up the next morning, the first thing he asked was if he could go back to Galveston for another ghost tour with Pirate John. That said, the material was also thoroughly engaging for adults as well. 10/10 recommend!
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
This is one of the best reviews ever! Thank you so much. So glad everybody earned a little bit of gold and we'll see you soon.

Good stories, Not a ghost tour
Charisse_A
, Jul 2021
Good stories about city but wouldn’t consider a ghost tour by any means. Walking through center of town with music from bars doesn’t lend for right atmosphere and stops/stories were a bit long with no climax.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Sorry the noise of the Strand distracted from your tour. The Strand becomes our Bourbon Street on Friday and Saturday night. The Historic Galveston Ghost Tour would have probably been more to your liking as it's conducted in a haunted neighborhood thank you. We hope the rest of your stay in Galveston was more to your liking. Thank you for writing
