The tour guide was difficult to hear and monotone in delivery. None of the stories shared were the least bit interesting or compelling. We were bored almost the entire time.

We really enjoyed our time on the 9 pm ghost tour and I must admit I'm a bit more of a believer than when I went into the evening! This was a great way to learn a little more about Galena's history also. We recommend it!

I've taken this tour before however this time our guide was not a hostess at all. She was not pleasant, forced in her speeches, unfriendly and awkward. The tour itself is good and entertaining...I can only hope for a better guide in the future.

I don't typically write reviews but in this instance I really expected much more. While Jay is a good story teller to me that is what he is (a story teller). I was hoping we could walk through the cemetary and not just stand outside the fence. I do not remember the name of the home they took us through... More

The tour guide was filled with history and fun stories. Got a chance to use different ghost hunting tools. Well worth the time and money!

Had a really fun time. We used dowsing rods at The Cemetary & even made contact with some loved ones. At the Ryan Mansion we discovered shadow ghosts in our photos. Called & then sent you the pics, too.

This was a terrific experience. I greatly enjoyed hearing the history behind the hauntings. The guide was extremely personable and it was amazing that we were able to use actual ghost communication technologies. I would recommend this experience to anyone living in or visiting Galena!
