Tour guide was very informative and detailed about the history of Chicago and some paranormal events, but not sure there was much difference in regular ghost tours and a "Gothic" version. Failed to see the Gothic theme of the tour, other than death related locations
Found it very informational & entertaining.
Larry was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Although this tour visited many of the same spots as the ghost tour I was on last fall with Dave, Larry had his own "spin" and I learned quite a bit. I'd never seen the Balbo monument before; didn't even know it existed. I think that was about the only "new" thing for me, but even so, I got a lot out of the tour. My only negative comment would be directed at the bus driver - she wasn't very professional and was even a bit scary. While we were zipping down LSD, she took the microphone from Larry and attempted to get it to work - all the while watching the microphone, not the road!
Clarence was amazing, and funny. We had a great time with him as the host, and the bus driver was amazing. We definately learned alot from this tour and host. The only bad thing is that we signed up for the Gothic Chicago Tour, and it was changed to the Devil in the White City Tour. We were going to attend this tour at a later time as well, so we felt like we were sort of tricked. We will definately be back for another tour soon.
I enjoy history so this tour was right up my alley. I learned a lot and Clarence was very entertaining. I wish the bus had a little more leg room, and it was a little too warm for my comfort. But overall we had a nice time and would consider taking another tour.
Ursula was very helpful and patient when I was trying to schedule my tour. This is the second Chicago Hauntings Tour I have been on and I love them! We had Clarence as our tour guide and he was upbeat, funny, and very knowledgeable. I definitely would recommend this tour!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable.
We really enjoyed meeting Ursula & Jann. They are completely enchanting as well as very knowledgeable with Chicago history. I was disappointed that we didn't get to stop at a couple of places that was on the agenda though. I really wanted to check out those hand prints on the gates of Resurrection Cemetery. I talked with a young woman who told me that they would be late for a dinner reservation because of an improper time which, we were going to come at the earlier time listed as well. Glad we didn't since we are from out of town. I thought Ursula handled that dilemma with pure excellence when she pulled up to the Restaurant to deliver the girls & waiting for them was a man dressed like a Gangster to escort them in! We will be back for future tours. We love love love the city of Chicago. Thank you.
Ursula does a fantastic job guideing the tour. My fiancé and I found the tour both informative and a lot of fun. We loved this tour and will be going on more in the future. -~Helen Adams
