My friend and I went and we had so much fun! We were in Dubuque/Galena for the weekend and this was the perfect end to our mini vacation. Ted was so enthusiastic about the tour and I don't think he was in character but that's just how he is and it just made it that much more amazing. We had so much fun that we went back to a couple of the sites the next day to see if the legends were true and we caught a couple things and Ted was really excited to see what we found. DEFINITELY would recommend this tour!

Super fun and informative! It was the perfect Covid compliant evening activity! Michael was funny and charming. He had a great ability to weave humor and history into each ghost story!

The storytelling was superb! The amount of walking was just right and each stop was perfectly spaced apart. The stories/haunted history were perfectly balanced between spooky and humorous. We appreciated Ted's outfit and how incredibly easy to approach he was. We'll be recommending this tour to everyone and hoping to take it again some day!
