Choose Between Two Options

  • $28.99 for a signature ghost tour for two ($56 value)
  • $50 for $100 worth of tour tickets

During the signature ghost tour, guides narrate historical tales as the bus passes a rotating itinerary of paranormal landmarks. Stops can include the riverside site of the 1915 SS Eastland disaster or the Biograph Theater, where gangster John Dillinger fell to FBI bullets. The 2.5-hour excursion also includes time off the bus, during which guests explore the venues on foot. Tours begin at 600 North Clark Street; see a schedule for upcoming trips.

With the second option, guests can purchase tickets to the signature tour or to one of several specialty tours, including the Ghosts of Chinatown tour and the Haunted by Holmes tour, which is inspired by The Devil in the White City.

Chicago Hauntings

Chicago Hauntings' "ghost bus" whisks passengers away on interactive trips to the second city's spookiest locales. Founder Ursula Bielski and her crew of paranormal researchers split their signature tours between historical yarns on the bus and time exploring supernaturally active sites on foot. The rotating itinerary of stops includes the site of the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre, the location of the Fort Dearborn Massacre, and the spot where Resurrection Mary met her fateful end.

Along with her primary routes, Ursula leads specialty tours including daytime trips based on The Devil in the White City, Erik Larson's bestseller about serial killer H. H. Holmes, and strolls down one Chinatown block where every building is allegedly haunted. She also hosts private tours, pub crawls, and kid-friendly excursions during which youngsters hear toned-down tales and learn about ghost-hunting equipment more advanced than their dog Sherlock.

Reviews

I highly recommend this tour for a fun time and for anyone interested in the dark-side of Chicago history.

double-whammy of the historical aspects, and the definite paranormal aspects!
