Ursula is a great story teller and has many fascinating stories that make the tour such a pleasure. Stopping at the actual sites was also great treat!
It was fun, informative, and Ursala was great! Love the pub stops and the food at Chet's was awesome! I am going to order some of her books. She has me hooked!!! Thank you Ursala for a really nice time. Do you do other tours? I would like to do the tour of North Chicago (Valentines's Day Masacre etc.).
Ursula's storytelling was excellent. I feel the Resurrection Mary tour could be improved by leaving out the trip past her home and funeral parlor. Also, I think it would be better if the bus driver had a written driving itinerary, rather than relying on directions from Ursula during the tour.
Love hearing Ursula's stories tied into her knowledge of local folklore and History. Anyone can read the stories, but hearing them relayed in person adds so more much to the experience!
Ursula was a great tour guide! Fun time!!
What a fun tour ! It was great having Ursula as the guide she is so knowledgeable- she knows her stuff! I have been on many ghost tours across the US because this is what I love. Ursula is not just telling ghost stories though she really has done the research and interviews to make this tour super exciting .... hands down the best ghost tour I have been on!
very interesting stories, Ursula was very knowledgeable about these hauntings. Really catered to the customers with a great bus and a snack between the last few stops. Would take another tour!
Had a blast! Thanks, Ursula!
My mom, husband and I all immensely enjoyed the tour. Ursula is a wonderful historian and her love and knowledge of all things Chicago comes through from the very first moment. When you're lucky enough to have your tour led by the very person who created the experience and literally wrote the book on it, you know you're in for a treat. I have highly recommended all Chicago Hauntings tours to friends and family and look forward to my next one.
Ursula has so much knowledge and passion, it was a pleasure to listen to her. I will definitely book another ghost tour with her!
I think Ursula was very knowledgeable and she kept our attention. Everyone was polite and respectful of everyone on the bus. I have lived in the Chicago land area all my life and I didn't know about Willow Springs and all its history, I loved that. I wish we could have left the bus by the Willow brook ball room though and the cemetery. That would have been the icing.
Interesting historical facts. Great value. Friendly tour guide and driver. Comfortable bus.
The entire tour was conducted on a bus. There were no haunted locations, I.e. cemeteries, houses, etc. It was okay but I expected a more haunting experience.
I thought I knew all about Resurrection Mary until I went on this tour. I was a wrong :-) Ursula gets into the entire history with stories I have never found anywhere else all the while making it entertaining. The information regarding haunted Archer avenue blew me away. The stops were great, Chet's Melody Lounge was fantastic, and the bus ride was clean and comfortable. I couldn't believe the 4 hours went so quickly. Money well spend in my opinion.
Super fun and informative tour! Ursula is knowledgeable, charming and hospitable. My friends and I had a marvelous time!
