Just wanted to thank you guys for straightening out all of the complications as booking the tour as our plans changed. Three couples, all different dates and times! We really appreciate it. AND the tour was great. Kudos to Maverick, we all loved it and I would definitely recommend it to friends. It was so interesting to get some of the Austin history as well.

Of course the first question to ask is who is haunting the building? It came to my attention that pretty much everybody believed their ghosts came into existence through some sort of drama. Each suicide or murder seemed to be over lost love. Every building was at one point either a brothel or bordello, a speakeasy or gambling hall. Austin’s colorful famed gun fighter Ben Thompson was haunting every bar in the city. What ended up floating around with the ghosts were lots of urban legends, no real facts.
