San Diego Ghosts & Gravestones Tour
The spirits come alive this Halloween on San Diego’s most notorious tour… Ghosts and Gravestones. Take your seat on the trolley as our Gravedigger guides transport you back in time to San Diego’s past - and witness for yourself the paranormal activity, ghostly sightings and the unexplainable mysteries that surround some of San Diego’s most haunted sites. We’ll journey to the Maritime Museum where three ghosts are said to be dwelling on the Flag Ship, the Star of India and the Berkeley. Then onto the Gaslamp Quarter, where Gunslingers, Gamblers and Ladies of the Night who died centuries ago are said to live… miserably residing in ancient old buildings. Catch your breath as the trolley heads to the Whaley House, which is the number one haunted house in the United States, according to the Travel Channel’s America’s Most Haunted. Listen for the moans, look for the orbs of light, watch your back—the ghosts are angry and looking for revenge. San Diego’s most frightening Ghost Tour runs September through October only so make your reservations well in advance for San Diego Halloween Events.
