From Weird to Wicked
Austin has a unique way of encouraging eccentric behavior with its infamous element of the weird, which has led to the prosperity of places you just can’t find anywhere else. On our ghost tour you will visit haunted locations such as The Cathedral of Junk, the Hope Outdoor Gallery, and the Museum of the Weird, among countless oddball restaurants and vintage shops. People travel far and wide to get a taste of Austin’s unique eateries and out-of-the-ordinary attractions. What they don’t typically realize is just how weird Austin can get when you throw in the strangest ingredient this city has to offer: the supernatural. The history of the capital of Texas offers shocking stories of forbidden lovers, heartbreaking suicides, brutal murders, and freak accidents. Some of the ghosts we will encounter on our historic ghost tour are playful and harmless, but others are quite wicked and have committed some horrific crimes in their lifetimes. At Austin Ghosts, we strive to provide our tour guests with accurate, yet chilling accounts of the haunted history of Austin.
The Dark Side of Bat City
Stroll across the City of Bats’ hotspots on our haunted ghost tour as we explore the dark side of its charming downtown streets. On our ghost tour, you’ll not only visit the most haunted places in town but discover the history that lived…and lives on…in each building. Keep your cameras ready because some pretty spooky footage has been captured on some of our very own expeditions. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the suicide brides roaming around the Driskill or witness the legendary Man with the Cigar thoughtfully pacing around at the Paramount Theatre. Loads of tall tales skim the surface of Austin’s history, but on our tour you will hear true stories that have been thoroughly fact-checked and researched.
