Very informative.

Very interesting tour that not only had some great stories on the history of St. Charles but also gave background information on a lot of the buildings as well. Well worth it.

This is not a hokey ghost tour that is more interested in selling local businesses, instead it is a good historical overview of old Saint Charles. Dr. Henry has an amazing knowledge of the area and includes not only Lewis and Clarke and Daniel Boone, but lesser known denizens of Saint Charles. This tour will help you understand Saint Charles...

I went two times, once with my dad and then with my mom. I found out so much about Main Street and its history. I liked how Mr. Henry is well informed about this subject and updates his info when it needs to be updatedv

This tour was great! My husband and I went knowing that it was more history based vs some crazy ghost hunt. I had read reviews about the tour and decided it was something different than we'd normally do. It was a great change from a typical movie night for us. It lasted about two hours and you do walk/stand the... More

If you're looking for scary............well I wasn't scared. But I didn't want to be scared. I wanted to learn! And I think my whole group was pretty impressed with Dr. Henry! He's wonderful! He kept everybody interested! Especially when he talked about Lewis & Clark! He gave us some ghost hunting equipment to use (which kept the kids' interest. Our... More

This tour was fun and very informative. It is impressive how much the tour guide knows about the area. I appreciate that he didn't just concoct ghost stories to try to scare us. It was more about telling what people have reported seeing and documenting in the area. That being said, there are some credible and spooky ghost stories that... More

As I am writing this review I am planning my third ghost tour. Over the last two years I have taken a different friend and both times they both loved it. I am taking my sister this time. The tour operator is very interesting and has lots of stories to tell. He has the meters that go off when there... More

My families experience with Mike & his Spirits: Let me start from the beginning...My husband & I needed a evening activity to occupy 2 very depressed teens. Our 15 year old daughters (twins) were upset about not being able to attend "the party of the year" that a classmate was having for her 16th birthday. There were rumors of alcohol... More

Basically. this supposed ghost tour is nothing more than a historical background of the area. The host tries to invoke spiritual "happenings" into a rather boring st`orytelling that is more befit for scouting campfire "stories". You dont enter any buildings or see any graveyards; only a place where a graveyard used to be. It's strictly a walking tour where the... More

It seems that this person has watched too many of the “ghost hunter” shows on TV. We do not try to “invoke” anything, this is a REAL ghost tour, and I guess that is the problem. To be accurate, the tour is limited to public areas; it would be pretty impolite to simply .walk into someone’s business, interrupt them and... More
