The mentally ill homeless guy interrupting and cursing out the tour guide was memorable. We have been on tours that were more believable and interactive. All we did was walk around and she told us stories. There was lots of references to how she feels spirits and can’t go into some places. I guess the historical part with the stories was cool, my kids are interested in that. The padres baseball game just finished, so it was pretty clustered getting around.


Luna had a difficult time recalling specific details during the tour and was a bit all over the place. She was very friendly but very hard to follow along or be engaged.


Walking into the old San Diego morgue was creepy and very interesting and Luna the guide lady made it so much fun

Drew was an amazing detective leading us through the city. He made it fun, interactive and informative. Great time!


Considering I’ve never done a ghost tour, I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I did expect a little more. I could have easily walked 2 blocks and Googled my own stories. We were given ghost tools to use on windows and sidewalks, I really expected we’d at least walk inside some of the buildings. Instead, the group walked a couple blocks and stopped at a handful of buildings to hear old time stories of why the building is haunted. The guide was knowledgeable for sure but I’d have definitely preferred to do something else with that 60-90mins of time.


Enjoyed hearing the history of the area and things that had happened in the past. The detective that toured us was very knowledgeable and was able to give good information


Guide was funny and very knowledgeable about the area. Two other groups were no shows, so he made it a really special night for me and my husband.


Fun way to learn more about some of the San Diego history and nice and energetic detective to show around town


Detective Drew was great. Very informative and interactive with the whole group. We had a great time on this tour.


The tour guide was so amazing. He made you feel a part of the experience like we were all friends mix
