THE STRAND in Galveston has seen a horrifying number of sudden deaths. An ungodly number of the islands dearly departed… well never departed. 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.

The most amazing tour I’ve ever been on in my life. Who knew Galveston had such an amazing history. I have never had so much fun learning about a city. Must do! You wont regret it.

Conference ended early and i booked this tour as an evening out for everyone. We had such a good time that I have been voted to plan all future entertainment for our conferences. This was an excellent team building experience.

The 15 people in our group quickly became friends and we all enjoyed the tour, each others company and the drinks! We played stump the guide and lost every time, he was absolutely amazing!

What makes a ghost?

The paranormal researchers tell us that ghosts are formed in four ways; sudden death, demonic possession, habitual (they just don’t want to leave), or unfinished business. When the 10,000 souls died in the great hurricane of September 8th of 1900, the massive loss seems to have triggered many of the most well known incidences of paranormal activity. It is further speculated that ghosts like to live near water, who knew.
