Lot of twists and fun

William was great - always keeping us on the edge - great stories! Able to see some of Austin’s older buildings to help with the effect
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thanks for the review Diane! We loved having you with us :-) come back and see you soon. People who love the ghost tour usually have a little bit of true crime in them :-) I think you should tour again and discover America’s first serial killer on Murder Walk Austin! Best, JM, owner, touratx.com

True crime and ghost stories

My boyfriend and I had a good time walking around downtown Austin with Tyler. Because of the tour, I have a couple more items on my spooky Austin Bucket List to fulfill. My favorite parts were going into the back room of the Speakeasy Tavern (which we probably wouldn't be allowed into otherwise), hearing the Austin Jack the Ripper theory, and hearing part of the backstory of the Driskill Hotel. If you like true crime and ghost stories, this is a great choice. Worth the time!

Thanks for taking the time to tour Austin with touratx.com! Our tour team is full of true crime geeks and ghost story enthusiasts who love Austin and love telling her story. Come back and see us soon!! I have a feeling you would love a deep dive into the murders of 1885… Murder Walk Austin!! Best, Jim Miles touratx.com

My husband and I are obsessed with ghost stories. This was a perfect experience. Mr. Miles, our guide, made the tour so much fun and he was a great story teller. We highly recommend this tour.

The tour was interesting and I would do it again. The tour guide was pleasant. I noticed other guides seemed to go more in depth and tell the stories in a more lively and passionate way. When retelling the story about the brides and the haunting of the Driscoll Rm 525, I would recommend a reminder to use the correct verbiage - people were hanged, pictures were hung.

I’m so glad you enjoyed your tour and thanks for the Attention to detail :-) You are correct, language is very very important. Come back and see you soon! If you enjoyed the ghost tour you will love our true crime offering, murder walk Austin! Thanks again, WTA, touratx.com

My friend is super into true crime type stuff, our tour guide was named William, and he did a good job. He was loud enough to hear through all the noise of Austin. He made us transport back to that time, he seems very passionate.
