“Just ok”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

I am very familiar with Chicago and thought this would be an interesting way to see something new as part of our girls weekend. It was ok, but i would not recommend. i guess if you've never been to Chicago you might find it interesting, but it was definitely not scary. I would have been mad if we had paid more than $25 for this tour

“Not so fun...”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

I agree with other reviews, this is a history tour with some fun facts, but nothing scary. We went on Valentine's day so it was sort of "love" themed. It wasnt anything special. I could of found this info out on the internet and went driving around the city myself. We were stuck on a bus in the cold and had to get out and walk sometimes to see NOTHING. Not spooky at all, just learned some facts. There are probably better ones out there...

“More of a historical tour than a ghost tour but very interesting!”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

I'm not a fan of ghost tours but went along with some friends. Our tour guide was Adam and I have to say, this guy is a walking historian for the city of Chicago and its ghostly ways. He was very knowledgable and a great story teller.

If you going on this tour to get scared, then I would not recommend it. However if you want to understand the history of some of the locations, sites, and stories of Chicago ghost and murder history, its pretty good. Definately a little long for my taste.....

“Not what i really expected...”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

looking online i found this tour of hauntings in chicago, figured it would be nice to go on a tour since i like to investigate locations with hauntings or history. Pretty much all you do on the tour ride is pass by places while the tour guide tells you what occurred and that's pretty much it. You do stop at 3-4 locations but that's about it, nothing really "haunting" or spooky about the places but it's nice to know what had occurred, but if your a Chicago native your already well aware of it. Over all it was ok, but not worth the price.

“Hard to see out of bus.”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 via mobile

It was very hard to see out of the bus at what the guide was talking about. It was just ok. You cannot take pics from the bus. Guide kept saying how The city won't let them stop and they would drive on. Some of the stories were ok but I couldn't see anything out of this old bus.
