Our guides are responsible for leading a group of up to 30 people through a haunted town while reciting historical dates and facts, folklore and legends in an entertaining and enthusiastic way. Guides must be able to walk and stand for hours at a time, and have the ability to speak clearly and loudly enough to be heard without a microphone.

Training program: Our 6 tour training program is essential to provide enough situational experience to prepare our trainees for their future as a Houston Ghost Tour guide. Aspiring guides will follow our professional team members through 6 required tour visits. Once the minimum required tours have been seen and requirements for employment is met, trainees will get the opportunity to sign on for employment and will receive the script to begin memorizing lines.
