    The Whaley House

    You will see the place several sources (The Travel Channel's America's Most Haunted, Life Magazine, and Time Magazine) claim is the most haunted house in the United States. Find out how it all began with Yankee Jim and it's other doomed occupants.

    Show more

    The Villa Montezuma

    Is said to be haunted, by 2 people who once lived there. Strangely enough they say, it is the first person to live in the house and the last to live in the Villa Montezuma. Perhaps you yourself will hear music from beyond or see a haunted artifact move.

    Show more

    The Horton Grand Hotel

    Famous for room 309 and room 209, which are both active. One of the ghosts maybe someone you have already heard of, an infamous gunslinger, can you guess who that might be? Visitors still experience mysterious cold chills, footsteps and glowing orbs.

    Show more

    Davis-Horton House

    This is the house where people would come to die as it was a hospital of sorts with a dramatic history. Our guests have experienced being pushed around the house with a hand on their back when there is no one behind them and catching mysterious shapes on camera.

    Show more

    El Campo Cemetary

    Back to where it all began. Old Town San Diego, El Campo Santo Cemetery has a long history of the macabre. Ghosts there are disturbed as their burial grounds have been disturbed many times. Strange figures still appear seemingly to glow and float above the ground.

    I finally got to go on this awesome Ghost Tour on August 9th! Our spooky hostess was Colliope and she was packed full'a puns! She definitely knew her history about each stop on the tour and made this experience very fun! I captured a few spooky photos that I'll post on the page! I recommend going on this tour to everyone! The 5 stops were unforgettable, especially the Villa Montezuma and the William Heath Davis house! 👻
    I will definitely be going on this tour again in the future 🎃

    Michelle IronfieldMichelle Ironfield

    Colliope was our ghost tour guide and she was "pun"tastic with many silly jokes and entertaining with the ghostly theme. You get to visit about 5 different places with some walking around.

    We went on last night's 9pm tour with Dante, and we had so much fun! He is a great storyteller! There were a couple of spooky moments but it was really just great to see and hear about some of San Diego's haunted history! We are visiting from Washington State but will definitely recommend this to other people who may be visiting. Thanks again!

    Brian PeckBrian Peck

    Victoria did an amazing job! She got into character so well! We could tell she has fun taking ghouls on the tour. There was so much info she had to tell us, and could answer every question she was asked. Glad we went with you and not your competition! Thanks!

    Best ghost tour I've been on!!definitely will go again!!

    Jordan FuchsJordan Fuchs

    Had an awesome time, a must do!! Learned so much and had a lot of fun!!

    Melissa VialaMelissa Viala

    So much fun! Dante was so funny and informative. The bus was comfortable and we learned so many interesting things about San Diego!

    April LindstedtApril Lindstedt

    Calliopi was enjoyably filled with story telling, puns, and specially intricate details of ghostly appearances.

    David JanischDavid Janisch

    Awesome tour. I go often on ghost tours when i travel and this is one of the best. Great costumed guide and bus is decorated like inside of coffin with flickering candles. Very informative tour with theatrical performance. Went into 3 locations out of 5 stops. Most ghost tours don't take you inside, so this was a plus. Very professional top notch tour. Not for kids, adult orientated.

    Lisa Cunliffe-McnishLisa Cunliffe-Mcnish

    What a great night! Dante was the host of the evening, he was very theatrical and entertaining with lots of corny jokes thrown in! I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting San Diego as the history was interesting and the tour itself takes you to places you probably would not see otherwise. I went by myself and had a great fun evening! I will take this tour again with friends on my next visit!

    Gina CortezGina Cortez

    We did this tour for my birthday and got Dante as our guide. It's exactly as they say it is. Lots of story telling and history with gruesome details. Wish we heard stuff and got to go in a little more of the places but it was fantastic nonetheless and Dante was amazing. He brings his passion into his story telling and just really made it fun!

    Kyle EngelKyle Engel

    Took this tour with a buddy of mine on Saturday and had a great time. Rebecca was an absolutely fantastic ghostess and a great story teller. She was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and many that we did not. Had a nice talk with her about other locations in the country she had visited and recommended visiting. Overall it was a great experience and would recommend it, just be prepared for corny jokes. �

    Geoffrey RiceGeoffrey Rice

    This was a truly great experience. A little cheesy but by far worth the money. I didn’t feel that creepy vibe but to actually learn the historical background of different San Diego men and women. We combined the tour with the Whaley house and it was a great experience as well I would definitely pay the little extra to take the full tour as you will be more then satisfied.

    I read many raving reviews about this tour company and reviews that outshined their competitors.

    The experience I had on the night I went was AMAZING! Our guide did an exceptional job, giving some history about San Diego and some of its enchanted residents. A very talented story teller, our guide kept the flow of information coming at a good pace, not too fast so I couldn't keep up, nor too much where I become overwhelmed.

    Our guide even had some playful elements during some story telling-- using pocket sound effects, flash lights, etc to enhance some of the stories,,, but never to trick or try to deceive us.

    The stops on the tour we made we all intriguing-- making me curious for more.

    Excellently curated work!!!

    Bridgette PeredaBridgette Pereda

    Went on the tour this weekend for my birthday. Could not have hoped for anything better!! Dante was the BEST tour guide and made the whole experience something special. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for something fun to do in San Diego. Thank you ghost tours for making my birthday to die for!! 🙂

    Elizabeth HopkinsElizabeth Hopkins

    This tour was so much fun!! It was very entertaining, with spirited tour guides (Victoria and Leo) who perfectly walked the line of performance and history. Highly recommended.

    I think i fell in love with Rosa Linda. 10/10

    Danielle DinaDanielle Dina

    It was very informative and the guide knew her material, but even though it was fun, the theatrics were a little much.

    Dave LottDave Lott

    An excellent tour with Victoria as our guide providing an almost non-stop adventure with tales of San Diego history and lore. A great value in a small group setting. Highly recommended.

    Jamie Heinige-DownsJamie Heinige-Downs

    Really had a super fun tour last night, Dante and Rebecca were great. Even my daughter who is 9 had a blast. They really made it a fun and quite a educational experience 🙂 Would highly recommend this tour if your in the area. The only thing I wished is that it was longer and maybe by the next time we get to comeback to San Diego, the tour will be able to go into the Montezuma house. Thanks for a very interesting evening!!!

    Brad O. B. LinvilleBrad O. B. Linville

    Our guide, Dante, knew his way around haunted San Diego. Learned a lot I did not know about my home town. The tour bus was decked out in theme and the driver was safe. It was interesting to see the many illustrations and photos our guide showed us brought the stories to life, and had a sense of off-beat humor. Highly recommended for all ages.

    Mike GriffinMike Griffin

    The tour was fun and educational. Victoria was awesome, funny and smart. Would go on this tour again. Wanted to thank Victoria for the great time, I think this was the best part of our vacation.

    Catherine HainesCatherine Haines

    This was the most fun I've ever had!! Our tour guide Dante Host was incredible!! I would reccomend this to anyone! Especially those into spooky things! Well worth the time and money! 😀

    Lauren Vanessa ZinkLauren Vanessa Zink

    Hands down, the best ghost tour I’ve ever been on! We had Victoria, and she was an incredible storyteller + (g)hostess! I don’t want to give away too much of the tour, but we were totally surprised and amazed and spooked several times. We did catch moving orbs on camera, and I have a photo that may or may not be a ghost widow in a tower...

    Kim SagendorfKim Sagendorf

    Great tour with witty informational commentary by Rebecca, very good mix of sites and activities, with sound effects!

    Ellen Skees O'BrienEllen Skees O'Brien

    Rebecca was entertaining and informative. I loved seeing parts of San Diego that I had been to before. Great experience!

    My sisters and I took the Haunted San Diego Ghost Tour last Sunday, 7/1. Archibald was our guide and he was great. It was exactly as it was described to me a little humor, lots of history and some great ghost stories. He made it lots of fun and kept us entertained the entire time, no lulls', no long breaks, just a constant flow of fun info and stories. I enjoyed driving around in the van and seeing different parts of the city where these stories took place. We had done another ghost tour here in town a few years back and we really enjoyed this one much more. I would highly recommend this tour!

    Victoria GreenwoodVictoria Greenwood

    This was the best birthday gift I gave myself!!! Rhonda was such an awesome driver and Dante is just phenomenal as a host. I learned alot and enjoyed my ghost droppings, lol. I'll be back!!

    Katy-Marie Francis WalkerKaty-Marie Francis Walker

    Great tour! Loved all the history and stories. Victoria (Kim) was an awesome guide- a lot of knowledge and a lot of fun! The sites were great. Can't wait to come back when some of them open again!

    Kessi W.Kessi W.

    Was very disappointed in the fact that my friends and I were told the Whaley House was included in the tour.

    A month ago my friends and I were standing in...
