Travel Blog | Day 4 | The Driskill Hotel Part 2 | A Custom Tour Through The Haunted Hotel

10:00am we met our tour guide from AO Tours Austin, at the front desk of the Lobby. A Handsome young man named Tyler, who gave us a two-hour private tour of The Driskill Hotel.

Before coming to the Driskill, I did some research and found out the historical Driskill Hotel was haunted. I read about Mr. Driskill himself walking the hallways, leaving a scent of cigar smoke where ever he roams the hotel. I also read about the two brides who had committed suicide 20 years apart in the same room.

And of Samantha a little 4-year-old child who had died at the hotel. I took a particular interest in the little girl and did some more research on Samantha for an article I will write in the near future, so keep coming back to learn about what happened to Samantha Houston. Yes, that very same Houston. The Granddaughter of the famous Sam Houston.

I had asked Mary the tour operator of AO Tours Austin, if she could have Tyler focus our private tour on Samantha, out little ghost child, at the Driskill  Hotel, which Tyler did. I was able to pick up a little more information from him during our tour. You may watch our private Driskill video tour below.

Because we are in Covid, tours are no longer taking place currently at The Driskill Hotel. But… The Driskill DID allow this tour because we are hotel guests. So, think about this… NO ONE else is allowed to take this tour during Covid except US!! How fantastic is that?? You only get this kind of treatment when you have a tour company like AO Tours Austin arranging your tour for you. They are the best!!

Our tour also included the 1855 Neil Cochran House Museum, another historical building of Austin, housing current artwork throughout the old home.

We ended our tour with a visit to Amy’s ice cream shop, where we had take-out ice cream in our favorite flavors.

This video is a private tour of The Driskill. My video editor is broken and I can’t edit videos until I get it replaced in about 10 days. There will be more videos soon. So, keep coming back, you won’t be disappointment with these stories.


Tomorrow we have a tour of the Texas back country planned.

Come back tomorrow for more information about this exciting trip to Austin Texas During Covid.
