It was an enjoyable tour. We went to places I haven’t been to. Bryan, Anthony and Mark were awesome and knowledgeable hosts. My only complaints are that the bus driver didn’t seem to know where we were going so spent some quality time rerouting. Also, though the hosts were great, I was very disappointed that we once again missed out on Ursula hosting the event. This is my third tour that I was excited to finally have her present the tour, and third tour to be let down. The information on the tour specified we would use ghost hunting apparatus and have small trivia or raffle prizes, neither which were included.
I was disappointed that Ursula was not able to run this tour since I had heard so many good things about her. That being said, I was very happy with the gentlemen who stepped in for Ursula to lead the tour. They were great! But since Ursula didn't attend, some of the advertised perks didn't happen, such as people being able to use some equipment. None was provided. Nor were there any drawings for prizes as advertised.
I really enjoyed the tour. I wish instead of just hearing about the stories of haunting and visiting the place for 15 minutes, we actually got to look around and go inside some locations that we went too
We loved our guides Bryan, Anthony, and Mark. They were knowlegeable and entertaining and did their best to keep us on schedule. The bus was extremely comfortable. Lunch was delicious at the Lodge in Antioch. Having grown up right here in Lake County I knew a little bit of the haunting stories. Had no idea how many building have given people experiences. I've been interested in the paranorma since I was in high school. I currently work in a church where nearly everyone I work with including myself have had some kind of paranormal experience. My cousins and I had a great time together on this tour. Thanks again.
This was a great trip. Brian, Anthony,and Mark shared their experiences and knowledge and were a wonderful source of facts and folklore. The trip was well planned and the coach bus was very nice and comfortable. They never "rushed" us or made it feel like we were being "herded" around. I would highly recommend this Lake County Ghost adventure to anyone interested. I hope to attend another trip and bring my sister along, as she is very interested in the ghost and paranormal research. Super job!
Fun and informative! A great time!

This was such an exciting tour from start to finish!!! I really enjoyed myself, and saw old friends, and made new ones. Ursula’s tours are amazing, and you are guaranteed to have a lot of fun, while also getting a fantastic history lesson of famous/infamous sites around the Chicagoland area. I encourage anyone who's interested in the history or paranormal fields to go on this adventure with Ursula and her team to explore the mysterious. ~Mikey R.
Fun and informative.
Scott and Dan were very knowledgeable, no trivia or prizes, missed that.
Knowledgeable moderator and well paced. Comfortable coach with good viewing through bus windows on those occasions. There was a nice flow of information between the various moderators. My wife and I would definitely attend another. The lodge in Antioch was adequate.
I have lived in Lake County my entire life and this tour took me to 5 locations that I did not know about. I found it fascinating. It was cool to hear the history along with the stories, much of which you won't hear anywhere else. Thank you for an interesting and informative tour.
The tour was fun and informative but we were looking forward to going to Cuba Road, which we couldn't do because we ran out of time
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour & found it very informative. I've lived here for over 30 years, & just learned of the many haunted sites so close to my home.
Wabted to do more investigations. Example: the basement in the Lodge.
We had a lot of fun! Our guides were great!
It was a very nice and well informed tour. We made several stops that weren't on the itinerary but were very interesting. It was cool to hear the history of some of these places that we have lived near for the last 20 years but didn't know anything about. Would definitely take this tour again or some of the others that are offered. Ursula was a well informed and entertaining host. Can't wait for her new books to come out.
Even rain and the cold didn't stop this tour, truly a enjoyable event, would highly recommend it to anyone
The tour was outstanding! How much you get to learn on the locations history is unbelievable, it makes experiencing any paranormal activity that much better (knowing that back stories of these spirits). Ursula is a true professional and veteran in the spirit world. I snapped tons of pictures and noticed noticed a lot of activity in them once I reviewed them at home. Overall HIGHLY recommend!!
Awesome tour. The ghost box results were mind blowing. A lot of detail and effort were put into this tour. I would highly recommend doing Ursula's tours.
I enjoyed all of the stories and the actual ghostly feedback at the restaurant. I would love to go on an actual ghost hunting tour in the near future. Please keep me informed. Cant wait till next year! Sue Orbesen
I (we) would have enjoyed more usage of the ghost hunting tools at the sites we stopped at. Rather than hand the tools out to let people use it... My wife and I thought it was much more entertaining to watch you guys use the tools. For example: at the restaurant was great! It was fun watching Nick use the different tools. Otherwise... still a great tour! We had a great time and learned a lot of ghostly history. Thanks again!
I would have liked more time to explore the sites
It was my first ever ghost tour and it was completely amazing! The tour guides knowledge of the history of the locations was mind blowing and my little sister even loved it! Will definitely be going on another tour!
I enjoyed the tour, but I wish we had gotten out and explored more of the locations instead of just talking about them from the bus. It also would have been really interesting if we did a little more investigating at some of the locations. The spirit box was the coolest part of the tour, so it would have really enhanced the experiments to try different tools out more than just one location.
I have been on several of Ursula Bielski's tours and they are always so interesting in that we never go to extremely common haunted sights. The Lake County tour included many sights that were brand new to me! The tours are paced nicely and it helps to read her books for even more background.
