Our experience was entertaining, funny, creepy, and a wee-bit scary! Ted was fabulous while sharing great Galena history and stories that make you look over your shoulder a few times. We will definitely do this again! Thanks, Ted!

Ted, the guide, was very enthusiastic! The tour was the perfect amount of time, not too hilly and overall enjoyable! The historical aspect of the hauntings was fun to learn about! What a cool little town
