What should I bring with me?

All you need to bring is a comfortable pair of shoes and a friend or two. *It's OK, you can be your own friend :-)


Are Children allowed?

Kids are welcome for both Morning Walk Austin and Ghost Walk Austin. The Austin Ghost tour is goosebumps scary, but never terrifying. It's creepy, but never gross. And definitely weird, but never inappropriate :-) Kind of like the tour guides.

Murder Walk Austin is for ages 13 and up. The subject matter and the links of the walk, combined with the fact that we stop in the Driskill tavern toward the end of the tour make it problematic for children under 13 to join.


Are dogs allowed?

Dogs are welcome on the tour, however, dogs are not allowed in the Tavern portion of the Driskill hotel. So, if you’re planning on bringing your pet please take that into consideration. One member of your party would have to wait outside with your pet during that 15 minute interlude.

Are the tours rain or shine?

Your tour will be rescheduled if the weather is determined to be a safety hazard. Ticket holders will be notified if a tour is canceled for any reason.

Murder Walk Austin will tour rain or shine. If it looks like light rain please bring in umbrella to make your trip more enjoyable.  


Is my ticket refundable?

Yes tickets are refundable if the tour is canceled for any reason.

No shows with reservations will be charged as tour size is limited and spots are saved by reservation.
