The Original Chicago Hauntings Tour
The City's Oldest and Most Acclaimed Ghost Tour
Fridays and Saturdays, year 'Round

Author and 25-year veteran paranormal researcher Ursula Bielski and her staff of expert historians and paranormal investigators have been hosting the award-winning Chicago Hauntings tours for 13 years, introducing countless thousands of visitors and natives to a very different side of the city.  From the sites of massive tragedies--like the Eastland disaster and the Iroqouis Theater Fire--to the bloody Fort Dearborn and St. Valentine's Day Massacres... from the death site of Chicago's most famous ghost,  "Resurrection Mary,"  to the body dump of legendary serial killer H. H. Holmes . . . From the cursed and deadly Hancock Building to the infamous Hull House, inspiration for "Rosemary's Baby" ...  you'll get a personal introduction to each one and more on this mind-altering tour of Chicago's true hauntings.  The  2.5 hour tour is by bus and fully narrated, but with numerous stops at some of the most actively haunted sites in Chicago.   This is not a "spook show" or haunted house tour with cheap thrills and scares.  Rather, it is a darkly historical, sometimes deeply disturbing tour and not recommended for highly sensitive children or adults.  

$38 per person*. $30 seniors and active military.   

Fridays at 8pm. Saturdays at 7pm and 10pm.  Sundays at 8pm.

DEAD & UNDEAD:

A Walking Tour of the Windy City's Haunted Sites, Crime Scenes & Strange Tales

These 2-hour walking tours are led by professional historians and paranormal investigators who have made Chicago's history and mystery their life's work.   Join our guides for one of three installments of an interactive and up close look at some of the most historically notorious and spiritually-infested areas of the city.  

Tuesdays: South Loop Dead & Undead: Step into the shadows of fabled Prairie Avenue, home to Chicago's movers and shakers after the Great Fire.  Explore the storied Levy vice district and trace the beginnings of the career of Al Capone, and look for the vanquished souls of the bloody Fort Dearborn Massacre.  Meets at Kroll's Tavern, 1700 S. Michigan.

Wednesdays: Lincoln Park Dead & Undead: Wander the thousands of unmarked graves in Chicago's vanished City Cemetery; discover the truth about "Candyman" and his Cabrini Green kingdom; hear tales of the legendary Suicide Bridge, and revisit the site of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.   Meets at the Chicago History Museum, North & Clark Streets.

Thursdays: Loop & Near North Dead & Undead: Discover what lies beneath Chicago's Millenium Park; hear the truth about the death of "Resurrection Mary;" travel to the sties of Chicago's Iroqouis Fire and Eastland Disaster; and learn the troubling realities behind some of Chicago's most iconic structures.  Meets at the LaSalle Street Bridge, LaSalle Street and Wacker Drive. 

$29 per person*

Please, no hard coolers. 

$72 per person* includes full, 7-hour tour with Ursula Bielski, use of ghost hunting tools, special guests, special stops, and light buffet. (Drinks not included.)

HAUNTED by HOLMES
Ghosts of the White City & Victorian Chicago

Sundays /3pm
With Adam Selzer or Clarence Goodman

Imitated by many, this is the original tour inspired by the phenomenonal best seller, "The Devil and the White City," Erik Larson's brilliant look at the minds behind the best and worst achievements of Victorian Chicago.  We'll travel through Prairie Avenue - home to Chicago's Victorian-era rich and famous. We'll explore the site of the notorious "murder castle" of horrific serial killer H. H. Holmes.  Afterwards, we'll steady our nerves in an atmospheric - and haunted - Victorian-era tavern. Wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing, and bring a poncho or umbrella (in case of rain) for our walk through the former fairgrounds--Jackson Park-- to the Wooded Island.

$44 per person* includes full tour with transportation.

GHOSTS OF GARY, IN
& DUNELAND

New dates coming soon!

Few cities illustrate the rise and fall of American industry like the Steel City: Gary, Indiana.  Once known also as the "Magic City," the town buillt by U.S. Steel on the windswept Indiana Dunes is today known as one of the most financially and socially destitute of all American cities.  And one of the most haunted.  Join Ursula Bielski, author of Haunted Gary and the Chicago Haunts series, for a stunning tour of the ruins of Gary and its entrancing ghostlore.  We'll see the site of the Circus Train Wreck of 1918, the "House of 200 Demons," the Jackson familly home and monument to Michael Jackson, the famed stretch of Cline Avenue still traversed by one of the world's most famous vanishing hitchhikers, and Miller Woods, dumping ground for Gary's gangland dead. After our tour of the city, we'll enjoy lunch at an Indiana Dunes eatery before visiting numerous other haunted sites around Northwest Indiana.  

$75 per person* or ($130 for 2) includes full tour with comfortable, secure transportation, lunch, trivia prizes and special guests. BYOB on the bus.  

Two pickup options:
10am at Chet's Melody Lounge in Justice, Illinois OR

RESURRECTION MARY LIVES
The Archer Avenue Tour

Various Saturdays at 2pm
With Ursula Bielski

Few roads in the world's haunted spectrum rival Chicago's Archer Avenue. Recognized for generations as one of the most haunted Roads on Earth, the ancient byway was originally an Indian Trail and hosted not only Westward-traveling migrants but Indian Wars and the tragic deaths along the building route of the Illinois and Michigan Canal.   Discover the haunts of Archer Road with the woman who fleshed them out in her more than 25 years of research.  Join Ursula Bielski to revisit the Devil's visit to Kaiser Hall, the phantom monks of St. James at Sag Bridge, the ghost lights of Maple Lake, and the road's most famous phantom, Resurrection mary.
