Welcome to Best Western Plus Galveston Suites!
On the Magical History Tour, our experienced tour guides will take you on a tremendous Segway journey. We’ll start with the famous downtown area of Galveston – the Strand Historic District. For a time, it was also known as “The Wall Street of the South.”
The stories that you’ll hear as we venture on our 1½ hour walking Ghost Tour, past the gilded mansions and palaces are only whispered about on Galveston. People here are too afraid to open a dialog with the dead… afraid to unlock the gates of hell. We’ll unravel the horrible, scary secrets that lurk inside the ghost sanctuaries… secrets kept for the past 150 years! We have researched stacks of photographs and letters from those who won’t stay dead! We dive warily into the haunted past and uncover the reasons why this unstoppable paranormal force still grips the island. Bring your garlic, crosses and silver bullets as we descend into the ghost hunt darkness. This Ghost tour is for believers and nonbelievers alike. You’ll turn from skeptic to ghost hunter and learn about Galveston’s unparalleled and fascinating paranormal history along way. This tour is appropriate for all ages. But beware, you may have to run fast…very fast to escape the clutches of the ghosts.
Experience the marvelous sunset over Galveston with a local & certified tour guide, by driving a Segway through the Seawall. Photograph these beautiful moments to keep as remembrances.
This tour makes Galveston appear to be a cemetery with a beach. You will pass by these cemeteries and see haunted houses where paranormal activity has been documented. There are stories of insanity and mass murder among the population, and there are darker rumors of mystery and the supernatural.
Using an app on your smartphone, you'll be given nearly 120 objects to find during your scavenger hunt. You'll then wander throughout the downtown area searching for the items. Once you've found the object, you'll send a photo in to score points. Along the way, you will perform challenges for even more points. You'll have 13 categories of objects you can find in this city walk, with each object varying in points depending on the difficulty. Don't worry, you won't be alone. You'll have a remote guide that will be texting you during your game if you need help or have a question. They will also encourage you and give you hints along the way! The objective of the game is to have fun, rank #1 on the leaderboard, and try to get as many points as possible by finding all of the objects!
This Segway tour is designed for people who just want to experience the joy of a great ride without being told stories or history along the way.
