Main Street St Charles seems to have more than its share of mysterious manifestations. Prepare to visit some of the places reporting ghostly activity. Just glimpsed glows, unexplained noises, and flitting shadows at the edge of vision.


Lights, sights, sounds and even ghostly smells. Will you glimpse a roaming spirit that was a victim of tragic death? Will you be grabbed from behind by a soul from the “lost” graveyard? Ghosts, history, and local legends, our tours capture it all.

This was one of the most informative ghost tours I've ever been on. I love history and the tour guide is actually a historian. Every story he told can be verified by records. I also got to be one of the ones on the tour to hold an EMF detector and I did get some weird readings! Loved the tour!!

Went on this ghost tour on a Friday night and it was so much fun! The guide was very informative and we learned quite a bit of history on this tour. My 13 year daughter loved the tour so much she wanted to go back the next night. We did buy the book after tour but haven't had a chance... More

This is a really bad ghost tour. It's more of a half-way, disappointing history tour. Way overpriced. The gentleman that gave this needs to go ahead and retire. Or charge half the price.

Wow not what I was expecting at all. I was so bored and what a waste of money. We went with two other couples and we left the tour a little early because all 6 of us were bored. I thought we would at least go in a building, but instead walked and walked and listened to stories that didn't... More

I went oh this tour with the co-star of my ghost podcast and we had an AWESOME time! We loved all of the info and history Dr. Henry had to offer and felt the tour was a great length. St. Charles Main St. is a great location and you're bound to learn many new things on this tour!

The most interesting history/ghost tour I have ever taken. Like other reviewers have noted Dr. Henry is very personable, funny, and intelligent. He shares the history and hauntings of St. Charles in a way that keeps you riveted to every word and believing it all too because he backs it up with research and fact. We had a great time... More

We have an awesome time walking down Main Street and learning the history of St Charles and its fascinating ghost stories. All total it was about a mile long walk in 90 minutes with plenty of stops for stories. Cold, but lots of fun!!

The entire tour was outside. You are not allowed inside buildings that are supposed to be haunted. Some are privately owned and others are businesses so the guide doesn't want to take a bunch of people in there that aren't purchasing. Interesting stories. You must believe (or have a sense of humor) or you won't enjoy the tour.
