The Original Chicago Hauntings Tour
The City's Oldest and Most Acclaimed Ghost Tour
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.  

Tours run "nearly nightly," year 'round.

$34 per person (includes county tax and fees).  $30 seniors and active military.   

Fridays and Saturdays.  Moving into full season. right now. Please click HERE for current schedule .

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.
