Capistrano Ghost Walk

Join us on a Ghost Walk....

Join us on the Capistrano Ghost Walk, our newest venture into the dark and the macabre through the historic streets of one of California’s oldest cities. Under the canopy of century old pepper trees hear the stories of the spirits that inhabit the old Los Rios district and make our way through the dimly lit Camino Capistrano to the outskirts of the Mission itself. Tales of headless spirits, bandits and even a pirate attack will be shared and elegant restaurants with a dark past and restless spirits await you. We end the tour outside the Mission near the church, where in 1812 a great earthquake struck, and forty-two parishioners were crushed under the falling stones, and at least one soul there is not at rest. A dark, history filled tour that will be remembered forever in one of Southern California’s oldest and most haunted locations.

Spirits with Spirits

Libations with the Dead, or simply Spirits with the Spirits. Call it what you wish but there is no better way to end an evening with us then a drink or two in the haunted wine cellar of the old El Adobe de Capistrano. This historic restaurant, which is featured on our tour, was once the old courthouse and jail in the early 1800s. The jail itself is now the wine cellar and known for its paranormal activity and has caused more than one of their staff to become unnerved. We of course ask you to imbibe responsibly, we have enough ghosts on the tour as it is.

  • Includes 2 drinks with an intimate group in the former basement jail cell.
