MAGICAL HISTORY TOUR | 2.5hr
On The Magical History Tour, our experienced tour guides will take you on a Segway journey starting with the famous downtown area of Galveston, “The Wall Street of the South.”
You will ride by the The Railroad Museum, used during prohibition, the most notorious era in Galveston’s History. An average of 40,000 people a day got off the train to gamble and visit the “entertainment houses” At the port of Galveston you will enjoy the fascinating view while hearing about some of the horrifying stories about the storm of 1900. The Galvestonians didn’t give up and rebuild everything against all odds, and the Island rose again. Our next stop is the largest collection of Victorian Homes in America which ones housed the greatest concentration of millionaires in America. Will learn how the families build their fortunes and share with you the gossip associated with them. There will be plenty of opportunities for pictures and videos including the Bishops Palace, The Sacred Hart Cathedral and the Sealy and Moody Mentions. And we will conclude our tour at the ocean’s edge where you will Hi five the surfers on the Seawall. Don’t forget your suntan lotion and sunglasses. This is the most fun and exciting tour of Galveston and you will come away with a fascinating history lesson to boot.
THE HAUNTED LEGENDS TOUR | 2hr
This tour makes Galveston look like a cemetery with a beach attached. Faces remain of the episodes of insanity and mass murder. However, there are rumors for things much worse, that have actually marked its splendor from the very beginning..
Mysterious darkness dance throughout wall surfaces. Mutter and strange whispers, not-at-all human figures and shaken images and cameras is all you see and hear. On a Segway nightmare visions become real as a deadly tide begins to engulf us as we get closer to death. Will you survive? You will hear their screams and feel their breath on your neck. If you believe in the paranormal that ghost are created by sudden death, unfinished business, demonic possession and habitual haunting. And Galveston has more of the above than any other place in the United States. We have cannibals, vicious American Indians, pirates, massive epidemics, fires, horrendous natural disasters, slavery all topped off with a violent mafia that controlled the Island. A cauldron of ghosts, daemons and unnatural spirits. Tragically, 10 000 souls were lost in one evening, the largest natural disaster in US History.
No place else in America can make such a claim. You find out why they won’t stay dead! You will visit their houses and bare witness to extraordinary paranormal activity, if you are lucky run in to few ghost’s and capture their pictures. This tour is not for the faint hearted, it’s scary, spooky and a lot of fun. Bring your garlic because this is one souvenir you won’t want to take home.
TREE CARVINGS TOUR | 2hr
After the 1900 Hurricane storm Galvestonians got together to rebuild the Island. First, they built a Seawall, which is now known as the world’s largest Seawall. Upon completion of the massive structure they used German pumps and pipes to move sand from the port of Galveston to the Island. In doing so they hoped to raise the entire Island to the same level as the newly built Seawall. After they raised the Island there was a need to plant trees to prevent the soil from eroding. That’s when thousands of German Oak trees were planted all over the Island to help prevent erosion. During Hurricane Ike in 2008 we lost many of these trees because of the flooding. The homeowners were emotionally attached to these trees, and refused to cut them down. So it was decided that artists would be hired to do Tree Sculptures out of the dead Oak trees. Today there are 22 of these sculptures scattered throughout the Island and some are still in the process of being made. Taking the Tree Sculptures Tour will allow you to view these unique pieces of art.
RAT PACK TOUR | 2hr
Do you want to meet Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Al Capone? Well we can’t promise you that, but we can take you where they lived, performed and made history. From 1915 to 1962 Galveston was called The Free State of Galveston, the Playground of The South. Forget about prohibition and morality laws, Galveston was wide open with the largest Red Light District in the world. Fancy Casinos, luxurious hotels, big name entertainment… Galveston was the blue print of modern day Las Vegas and we will show you where it all happened. See their establishments, The Balinese Room, The Hollywood Diner Club, The Pelican Club, all the best that the profits from 20000 cases of booze, smuggled from Cuba could buy. The money flowed and you will be absolutely amazed by the stories.
SUNSET TOUR | 2hr

Then, we will briefly visit the Historical District, and catch a glimpse of the beautiful Bishop’s Palace which was once called the Gresham’s Castle. Finally, the tour will end with a visit to the Port of Galveston where you can admire the breathtaking sunset. Being on an Island we have gorgeous sunsets, were no camera filters are needed to capture the moment.
