Cannot recommend this to anyone.

I rarely give poor reviews but this is an exception. Ghost tours should be taken as tongue-in-cheek for sure. But others I’ve been on have included interesting history of the area and enjoyable walking through areas. This was boring, and took place in an ugly area. Everyone on the trolley said they were very disappointed.
Secrets and eerie things you wouldn’t even image!

It was so much fun and a lot of San Diego history. Our tour was a lady I think her name was Maryann but she was awesome telling the stories and history. Come out and you won’t regret!
Fun and Spooky!

The history as well as the ghosts! The guide was knowledgeable and fun. Thanks for a great experience!
Loved the ambiance of palm trees and effigies!

Be prepared to hear about subjects like suicide, murder, and child death. Lots of historical reference, but told from a white colonizer perspective. Carrying lanterns was a nice touch and the bus driver Louise was a doll.
So much fun! Our guide...

So much fun! Our guide was great, had a really great time, it’s a must do if you visit San Diego didn’t see any ghosts but it was a really great tour
Best ghost tour EVER!

So been on a lot of these tours and this tour guide, by far, was the best! Just a fantastic storyteller! Keep my attention every second! Could have listened to him all night. Was fun to talk to individually too.
Fun Ghost Tour!

We had such a fun time on our tour! Wyatt was our guide for the evening. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Luis was our driver and he was very friendly as well. We learned a lot about San Diego’s early history and fun ghost facts! We will definitely come back once the Whaley House is open for another tour!
Gypped without Whaley house tour

The stories told by the guide were Interesting and added to the experience. More time needed to walk around and explore a little on your own.
Fun and entertaining

Our tour guide made the experience fun. We were disappointed that we were not able to enter the Whaley house. This was the reason we chose this tour. An update to the website would be helpful. For those that are new to the area, it is a bit confusing on how to check in. There is a kiosk that is not mentioned where you have to check in. Also. You have to wait in a specific area to board. This was not mentioned. When the tour concluded, it would have been helpful to know in which direction we could go in order to get back to where we initially started. A 3 is given based on the fact that we did not get entry to the Whaley house.

Morty was great. He gave us a ton of facts about the area and was funny and amiable as well. No thrills or chills from the spooks, a great time was had by al!
