All the real Ghost Tours across
America and in the world are all great and
wonderful to experience. But how as as a serious
Ghost hunter or paranormal investigator can
you take and make it the best experience possible.
Here are a few tips on making your personal
encounter with a real ghost on a walking tour
more then just the normal paranormal experience.
Skeptical or not when taking a walking or
riding ghost tour keep a good open clear mind
to what you might experience. You might just
learn an urban legend or two, or a bit of
the cities local history that you never knew.
Often those of us that take a Ghost tour in
our own cities and towns already know the
story being told and sometimes it may differ
from the one you know. either your fact or
theirs might be wrong. Many haunted building
and ghost stories of houses and cemeteries
often come from the research of a local historian
but fact often get retold to the point that
As a paranormal investigator it is great
to learn of these changes in stories and finding
out the differences in what you already have
gathered is the perfect thing that could happen.
Comparing your facts and those of a real haunted
ghost tour could in some cases open a new
twist on your paranormal investigation.

The do's and don'ts of ghost
hunting on a Haunted Ghost Tour...
If your a Ghost hunter or even a historian
it is not polite to speak up and challenge
a Ghost tour guides ghost story.
It is better to take them to the side
after the tour and tell them what you know
or have heard. of course who's to say your
right and they are wrong.
Ghost hunting on a ghost tour is not always
openly acceptable. It is better to ask or
contact a tour before you take it, to find
out if it is accepted or allowed. Many ghost
tours today around the world use copy written
material and do not like it being Video or
digitally recorded. A few tours often give
or offer private Ghost Tours especially geared
for ghost hunters only, and these are usually
much better and relaxed as compared to a quick
get the story told move on to the next haunted
stop of the tour. These Ghost Hunters only
tours may cost a little more but they are
certainly worth the time, attention and effort.
Ghost Tours of Galveston Island With Dash
Beardsley are the best Texas has to offer.
Accept no imitations by any means. If the
ghost man of Galveston is not involved the
Ghost tour whether it be a hotel or haunted
Cemetery is not worth what you paid for it.
Often copied but never equaled to Dash who
is the real Deal!
Ghost seem to follow him around and his skills
at hunting ghost and learning their stories
is simply uncanny. Many who have taken his
Island ghost tour continue to frequent them
and ghost photos when he is around happen
all the time. I believe Beardsley is just
a natural talented medium and as a ghost tour
guide this certainly makes for some real haunted
tour entertainment. Galveston, Texas I also
believe is the most haunted town in Texas,
and Beardsley is the best haunted Tour Guide
to take a tour with in the nation or possibly

Ghost Tours Of Galveston' Dash Beardsley
does many late night private ghost tours for
ghost hunters only. He welcomes the use of
any type of equipment you might want to bring
or use. " I don't openly advertise this
tour to the public but it does exist ."
And when Ghost Hunting in Galveston or any
Haunted City in the world it seems the Ghost
tours guides know all the hot spots and the
best times to find a real ghost to investigate.
Beardsley is a wealth of paranormal information
and much, much more of an investigator then
he admits to you on his tours. Personally
he has investigated many of the hotspots on
his tours and gathers new ghost stories almost
everyday. He also does many investigations
and is always looking for dedicated paranormal
enthusiast to tag along for a fee of course.
And it is worth every penny!
Take a ghost tour when your sober! A lot
of tourist in strange cities often have a
few and then decide to take a ghost tour.
this happens in cities like New Orleans and
New York 9 times out of ten. If you have had
to too much to drink then stay at the bar.
In most cases people who or over their drinking
limit often make a ghost tour unbearable for
those taking it.
Just because you take a tour that is not
enough for a Paranormal investigator to soothe
his itch in learning more. I often question
the tour guides trying to see if they or anyone
on their tour has experienced something other
worldly. Guides often cope with distractions
of the supernatural kind and at times often
keep them to themselves. A recent interview
into an investigation of a haunted location
yielded more info to me after questioning
a tour guide then did talking to the owner
of the location. The guide who visits the
home at least 3 times a day 6 nights a week
gave me their observations plus what they
could report back what people had experienced
on the actual tour.
After 25 years of interviewing individuals
who had experienced the paranormal—often
in the haunted sites where the events happened—Mark
Nesbitt, in 1994, became truly proactive in
the field of paranormal investigation. On
the darkened Gettysburg Battlefield, Mark,
along with Rick Fisher, founder and president
of Paranormal Society of Pennsylvania, began
seeking out the ghosts he had written about
for so many years.
Since then, Nesbitt has participated in,
or led, over one hundred investigations of
scores of haunted sites in Gettysburg, and
on the Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Court
House, Wilderness, and Chancellorsville Battlefields;
in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Johnstown,
Pennsylvania; in Maryland, Ohio, South Carolina,
Georgia, and other states. He has also conducted
hands-on workshops on paranormal investigation
techniques for those interested in learning
more about this field.
Nesbitt’s forte is EVP—electronic
voice phenomena—of which he has several
hundred examples. His collection of EVP is
the core of his next book, Dead Men Talking:
The Spirit Voices of the Civil War.
Mark Nesbitt leading a Paranormal Investigation
Workshop at The Ghosts of Gettysburg headquarters
building. Many Writers And Ghost Tour guides
often ho,d after hour seminars for those lucky
few that are willing to go on a real ghost
hunt. Some or publicized as those offered
by Nesbitt. Others are just passed on by word
of mouth. And if as the old adage goes ask
and you shall receive. I took a haunted tour
in California once. I simply asked the guide
is their any way I could investigate the alleged
haunted house on my own. The guide then invited
me along to a late night investigation of
the property that very night.
When taking a Haunted Ghost tour Or Ghost
Walk it is always important just to listen,
keep your eyes open and ask questions when
it is over. And of course investigate the
facts you have heard through books and on
the hunted internet.
