I had a great tour guide who knew a bunch about the history of Chicago and showed us some cool ghost-tracking gear. I just wished we'd focused a smidge more on ghost stories and tales of hauntings than trying to find/contact a ghost. It was still a really cool experience though! I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interactive for us. We had an amazing time!
Great tour keep up the good work 🤙🏽
Tony was a great guide. Very knowledgable about Chicgo history and he brought paranormal equipment for us to use.
The guide was knowledgeable and let us use his tools
I came to Chicago from out of town with two friends, having booked the tour ahead of time. It was a very good tour by the way, lots of fun and very insightful. There aren't anything like ghost tours in my state so I was extremely excited to see the tours that Chicago had to offer- sad to say the tours I really wanted to go to didn't have times on the days I was available while I was in Chicago- but, the Lincoln Park tour was extremely fun! Our guide, Tony was extremely friendly and informative- got out a lot about history while also talking about the ghosts of the tour itself. It was windy and cold but the tour was worth it. We also had the opportunity to use a EMF meter, I think it was- a ghost box, and dousing rods. Plenty of fun, before the tour I had been wanting to see a ghost box and EMF meter in action. Now as for strange happenings during the tour, I had a few! I had one or two good encounters with the EMF meter, one which I was able to get on video (it seemed like someone was walking with my friend and I, their company was very much appreciated, made things exciting). The ghost box was very interesting, I was able to pick up on a few things here and there near the bridge where suicides were committed (I hope i'm recalling correctly since i'm writing this review a little later, the tour was early October). Also, just when the tour was beginning and Tony was talking about the Chicago fires, once before he started talking about the fire my back was warm- and that was when the wind was really picking up during that time. I had even told my friend beside me that everything was cold except my back, like someone has put an electric blanket on it. Then it happened about 2 more times while Tony continued to talk about the fires. It was pretty surprising for me! I wasn't sure about encountering any ghosts but that was very real and strange. Another 'encounter' I had of some sorts was when we were led to the 'Couch' tomb- which didn't seem to have much activity. But I do remember as Tony was talking about how no one knows what's inside the tomb- a bit before he handed out the EMF meters, I heard someone say, "Don't touch it," a few moments later, 2-3 of the more adventurous types in our group, hopped over the fence surrounding the tomb. Needless to say, it was an extremely amazing tour with so many things going on at once..I hope to be in Chicago for a much longer stay, on my next visit, I would like to try out many of the other tours. Much thanks to our tour guide, Tony.
We did the tour with Tony as our guide. He knew so much about the city, its history, and all things paranormal. This is not your typical walking tour- its an interactive, engaging experience led by a passionate tour guide. I can't wait to wow my friends and family with the spooky facts I learned about my own neighborhood. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone with a curious mind. Whether you are visiting the city, or a permanent resident, this tour is a MUST do. Thank you Chicago Hauntings!!
Our host was very good.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I loved that the places we visited had factual historical relevance. Our guide did a great job!!

I absolutely loved the tour and will gladly rate you on Google etc, Tony was a super guide full of interesting stories and trivia , tempered with his own passion for the occult. Believing in ghosts really has nothing to do with the tour, but a love for history, anecdotes and the city itself is the draw. Thanks! Definitely going to take more tours with you.
The guide was excellent and had a lot of great knowledge of the city. The price was good for the amount of time spent on the tour. My only suggestion is to let people know where parking is and to let you know you end half mile from where you start. It's not a long way to walk but as a woman walking that late at night downtown is a little scary in itself. If i knew where it ended, I would of parked in that area.
Fantastic tour, Tony was knowledgeable, friendly and hilarious! I'm a Chicago resident and I discovered so much I didn't know about my own city, and some of the spooky happenings it has in its past!
It was such a great experience! Tony (our guide) was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the tour, from the paranormal to the historical! The tour was very reasonably priced and I can't wait to book more tours with Chicago Hauntings!
Super fun evening with Tony, our guide. He showed us several haunted sites in the Lincoln Park area and was a great historian. I took two friends from out of town and as much as they enjoyed hearing about the hauntings, they also enjoyed hearing about Chicago's history.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Being able to stop at certain historic parts all around Lincoln Park, and being able to use some paranormal investigative gear, made this tour an absolute awesome experience. I will definitely be back for another tour with this company!
The tour guide was great! He was so informative & we had great conversation with his stories. Learned so much about the city of Chicago. Would absolutely do another tour through Chicago Hauntings.
Our tour guide, Tony, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We greatly enjoyed our tour. Thank you.
Very knowledgeable tour guide. He knows his Chicago. Wish there were more stops on the tour. Being from out of town, I was a little disoriented which direction to go after our tour ended because the tour finished in a different place it started in.
The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of History about the area. It was great
Tony was an amazing source of information! I hope next time I am in town I can book another tour with him.
Very knowledgeable tour guide
Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Appreciated learning a little bit of history of the area. My only suggestion would be to give parking information and explain the intersection where the group meets, helpful to those of us who are from out of state/ not familiar with the area.
Had a great time with Tony on the tour, very informative and enjoyable, lots of history and sites on the tour, good value for money.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the Lincol Park Ghost tour and awesome experience. Would recommend not to OT anyone
This was an excellent tour. I highly recommend the tour guide Tony was fantastic ...so knowledgeable and fun.
Tony was amazing - very knowledgeable and kind. He paced the tour well, and brought some of his own equipment for us to use.
Tony was a great tour guide. He was knowledgeable and caring. Thank you!
Me and my boyfriend had a fantastic time! Very informative. Learned a lot about the history of chicago on the lincoln park tour. Our tour guide was super nice and well informed. Forget his name but he was great! Definitely will come back to this company for another of their tours
I wish I remembered the tour guide's name, but he was fantastic! He was truly excited about everything he was talking about. Letting us hold EMF gadgets and trying out the dowsing rods was a major plus! Did not expect to have as much fun as I did.
Tony was awesome
Very interesting and informative tour. Our guide was great!
We had a great time! My boyfriend and I loved chatting with Tony and he even told us about some experiences he had at the Drake Hotel where we were staying. We will be coming back for another tour and per Tony’s recommendation staying at the Congress next time. David my boyfriend, even thinks he caught a spirt on camera at the baseball field, which is where potter’s Field was.
Great tour guide!! We liked the ghost element to tell the history of Chicago. iT was cool in the dark and you had a lovely skyline view!! I only did not Like that the tour did not end where we started....
We love Tony! He is so knowledgeable and his passion shines through.
Tony our tour guide was awesome. I was a little sad in the beginning to hear Ursula wasn't doing the tour. I was hoping she would sign my book. But, I enjoyed the tour. I will try another one in the future. Thanks!
So much fun! I left a yelp review earlier. Thank you Tony for an awesome time!
It was amazing. We will definitely come back!!
Tony Szabelski, was knowledgeable, patient and courteous. He paced the experience perfectly. I learned a lot and look forward to going on another tour.
