We experienced this tour last night and it exceeded our expectations. William was an excellent tour guide. He was articulate, animated, and engaging. We really enjoyed learning about some of Austin’s history as a whole, as well as it’s paranormal undertones. Another cool aspect was the old photos of Austin that he readily shared on an iPad to compare with the current city. I highly recommend taking this tour as it will enhance your connection and experience in the city.
Based on the reviews I think this is really “Haunted Austin Walking History Tour” which is what we did. My wife and I love doing these sorts of tours because it is a fun way to learn some great local history. We were very disappointed in this tour. Our tour guide was a very nice, personable British woman. The first story was just a ghost story only a few years old. Most of the tour is spent talking about, and seeing the Driskill. She told us of a jilted bride who committed suicide in 1991. Trying to get more history after the tour there was several interesting suicide bride stories about the hotel way in the but nothing about her story. Yes, I know ghosts are real but usually you get some interesting history. She then did tell us an interesting story about America’s first serial killer and a possible link to Jack the Ripper. But by that time our interest was waning. Note that with the raucous Austin street scene it can often be hard to hear the tour guide.
