If your tour does not go, again very rare, we will refund you or move you to another date.

Yimin_G, Sep 2022
rosalinda is the best story teller I have met!! very glad that I choose this at the last week of san diego stay 🕷️🕸️
Great tour!
Karen_S, Sep 2022
It was very informative. I like that we were able to go inside several locations. I like the small group size and that we rode in the bus sometimes. Great experience. We thought this was the best tour we have been on. Thank you.
Nice thought, but save your Money
John_K, Sep 2022
I will start off by saying that Rosalinda and Kat are GREAT!! The rest of what I saw NOT WORTH IT. I give it 👎👎. For amount of money that I spent on this trip I feel that I was ripped off. Don't get me wrong the stories were nice, but if I wanted stories I can read them anywhere. If I knew that they would give me a refund because of my dissatisfaction, I would certainly ask for it. I guess that's what you get for booking last minute to try to fill some time in your vacation. I would definitely not recommend. There are better things to do and more options if you want to spend that kind of money. Again Rosalinda and cat were spectacular storytellers so don't get me wrong. If anything they deserve a raise.
Cowboy Pete was the best
Grace_M, Sep 2022
Great tour! Cowboy Pete really brought life and laughter to the experience! Also we were able to actually go into most of the haunted (or enchanted) locations as opposed to talking from outside
Fun tour
Mark_M, Aug 2022
Good time. We enjoyed Cowboy Pete’s performance and the destinations. Learned a lot about San Diego’s history.

Getting to go inside the Montezuma House was fabulous. Our tour guide Al was very informative and theatrical as well as hilarious. His delivery of information about each stop made the experience so much fun.
The best tour in San Diego!

Rosalinda our spirit guide was incredible. The tour was educational and insightful. I learned many things during this tour and the villa was breathtakingly beautiful. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family as it was just a great experience. Our driver and guide was just awesome and so much fun. Mahalo from Hawaii.🌺

JENNIFER_H, Aug 2022
The tour guide was full of energy and knowledge. It was so much fun! Defiantly worth it. It was perfect to have a break in the middle. We really enjoyed learning about the hidden history of NOLA!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks Jennifer and thanks for keeping it hidden :)
Rosalinda rocks ghost tour
Morris_B, Aug 2022
Rosalinda, our tour guide, was terrific. She was funny and informative. She kept things moving along with her offbeat monologues of ghosts and haunted tales of San Diego’s sordid history. I would recommend this tour to anyone with a sense of humor.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
You said it, sense of humor is key don't go unless you like the chessy jokes - thanks Morris!
Villa Montezma was...
Catherine_D, Aug 2022
Villa Montezma was amazing! But, the most informative, entertaing adventure was our guide, Al Hazrith!! Hilarious,scary, and a great teacher!!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Will pass this on to Al - his name comes from a famous book, or at least that is what his parents told me ;)
A Fun an Spooky 👻 night on the town!
Michael_S, Jul 2022
