About The Owners:

Owner Danny Thomas, aka Doc Strangeway, started the company in 2008, after visiting New Orleans. He met and became friends with some of the performers and tour company owners, who highly encouraged him to start a tour company in his home town of Houston.
Growing up, Danny had only one career plan for his future. He wanted to be a clown. At the age of 17, he joined a local clown college, and graduated as “Bucko”. He then joined the Air Force and served as Military Police for 4 years in the Middle East and Africa, while also attending college for his Bachelors in Abnormal Psychology and Criminal Justice.
With his love of strange and bizarre aspects of the world, and his passion for entertainment, he was able to meld his skills together to form Houston Ghost Tour. His creation has taken fun, humor, twisted history, and ghost stories and blended them into a seamless story of Houston, Old Town Spring, and more.
In 2011, Doc’s wife Lindy saw how hard he was working to keep the business running all by himself. She encouraged him to hire more tour guides to help with demand, and re-wrote the website and social media to enhance the business.
Lindy became the full-time writer, contributor, editor, and director, allowing Doc to go back to being the most requested Tour Guide of the company. With Lindy’s help, the business became a staple in the Houston area, as the most highly rated, attended, and well-known Ghost Tour in the Houston area.

It’s the existential question; “Why are we here?” It is human nature to strive to find the meaning of life, even if it is deep within our psyche and not our active mission to find the answer. Professor Lovecraft wants to help answer these questions for you seekers of knowledge.

Professor Lovecraft joined the Houston Ghost Tour team in mid 2020, and quickly rose in the ranks to Assistant Manager by early 2021. His ambition and drive to succeed catapulted him straight to the top, gaining 5 star reviews on his very first day. As Assistant Tour Guide Director, Professor Lovecraft uses his skills to not only assist staff and guides, but to ensure the best possible customer experience for all who he comes in contact with.

After only a few tour performances, the Prof. earned a following of loyal fans, who have affectionately dubbed him “Dr. Love”, and make it a point to bring all of their friends and family to the tours he performs. This has made his goal a success, as he wants his customers to enjoy their experience on tour enough to return again, and again.

The Professor welcomes you to join our Ghost Hunts, Tours, and Adventures, so that we can explore the unknown together.

He wants you to answer one question for him: Are you ready to discover something new?
