Disembodied footsteps, or voices? What about mysterious lights, or floating orbs? “Cold” spots, vortexes, or maybe a creepy sense there is something - someone - unseen; present with you? All these symptoms of a haunting are reported in these places, waiting for you to discover!
While most of these places have stories you may discover on the internet, many do not. Those stories live on as told by today’s locals. How to find out about San Diego ghost hauntings in some of the more obscure areas? Perhaps the best way is to simply go there and inquire! Maybe begin with a friendly greeting, and ask, “Say - is this place haunted?” People who have actually had a ghostly encounter are often reluctant to talk about it. But especially in the historic locations, the people may relate the stories as they’ve heard them from long time residents. Just give them a little encouragement, but don’t let them catch you taking notes!
deceased former residents still reside here. Reports off music being played, faces in the windows, and stained glass portraits with faces that appear to have aged over time, regularly occur. Read about Jesse Shepard and Amelia Yeager on our ghost biographies page.
My husband and I had a tour tonight with Bernice and I believe it was her first solo tour. She did a very good job and we really enjoyed the history and even humorous jokes. We’re planning on coming back soon for another tour hopefully when we can go inside the buildings that are currently closed because of covid.
This is the best haunted tour we’ve ever been on. Our tour guide, Dante, gave us the most enjoyable, entertaining, and informative tour. He is also a docent at one of the haunted locations on this tour and he regularly visits another, so he is incredibly knowledgeable about these sites. Dante knows how to combine theatrics and history in a way that thrilled us as well as kept us smiling through the four fascinating haunts that filled the evening. Other pluses are groups are small and the interior of the tour bus was designed like a fancy coffin. Just delightful!!!
This tour was amazing! We visited multiple locations, all of which were beautiful in their own way. Our guide, Rosalinda, was very enthusiastic and friendly. She kept the tour entertaining and used humor to keep the skeptics in the group equally as entertained. We didn’t spend much time on the bus between locations, which was great because the bus was pretty hot inside. The bus driver was very friendly and did a great job. Rosalinda told stories and showed us pictures during the journey between places, so it truly felt like no time. My entire group laughed, talked and enjoyed the experience. I saw several places that I would have never noticed during my week long trip to San Diego, but are now some of my favorite places of the trip. The Villa Montezuma was absolutely stunning. I can’t say that enough. The tour came full circle by the end and even though the final location was the most tragic and heart wrenching spot, Rosalinda found a way to leave the group in high spirits before our departure. If you have a chance to go on this tour, take it, even if paranormal stuff isn’t your thing. You won’t regret it! Best tour in San Diego hands down!
Some of the most fun I’ve had during my time in San Diego. The story-telling skills and historical accuracy of our tour guide, Archie, is indicative of the effort that this company is putting forth into giving people a great experience! The sites we visited ranged from Old Town to Gaslamp, and each was just as interesting as the other. Highly recommend for for all, even if paranormal stuff isn’t your thing!
We did this tour as a family for our daughter’s birthday and it did not disappoint!! Rosalinda was awesome and the entire 2 hours was full of information, great spooky stories and funny puns! Would love to go again with an even larger group. Thanks so much for a very memorable evening!
