While our tour guide was very interesting and knowledgeable it was just OK. I think I was expecting a bit more for the price of the tour.

Sorry to say this was not really what I expected. The bus flew around town. It was hard to see where we were going. The 'stories' weren't particularly engaging or interesting. Felt like what we were promised when purchasing the tickets (from the owner) was not delivered. The trolley tour we took earlier in the day was cheaper and much... More

We really had no expectations when we went on this tour. We heard a lot of interesting stories about haunts as well as some general history. I thought our tour guide was exceptional at story telling. Our final stop was the Reynolds house where we had some activity on the ghost meters and spirit box.

We took the bus tour and there were a couple stops, one at a graveyard and another at what is said to be Galena's most haunted house. It was pretty fun, and the stories the tour guide told us were interesting (if a little corny, hahah). I'd give it a B+! Worth going once, for sure.

Amelia's Ghost tour was a fun tour through the haunted past of Galena. Your enjoyment of it will greatly depend on your love of ghost stories and bad jokes. That is however my cup of tea!

Had a great time on the ghost tour. Tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Used dowsing rods and grandma Marg came through. Thought that was awesome.

I went on the tour with 9 other BFFs. We were determined to come away with a lasting memory. The driver was very polite and courteous. The guide was a character I won't soon forget - she made a lasting impression. Although we saw no ghosts, we came away with a lot of creepy pictures - the Ryan Mansion was... More

It was not what we expected, nothing happened on our tour. Just a story telling tour of people that have died, nothing out of the ordinary.

It was goofy. Definitely not worth $30 per person. Maybe $10. I don't believe in ghosts but thought it would at least be interesting.
