We had a great time on the walking tour. It was the full 90 minutes. Our guide (who went to Northeastern in Chicago) was great and very entertaining/theatrical. If you are concerned with the walking, it is very short spans of walking and then a lot of stopping to hear the great stories and history. I recommend for any visitor.

Our tour guide Mike Crawford did an amazing job explaining and going into detail with the story’s. I could feel my skin crawling with goose bumps hoping our group would run into a ghost. I rate it 5/5 , I would do it atleast 5 more times. If you love ghost story’s and history I highly recommend.

My friends and I went on the Spirits and Spirits tour. Bootlegger Ted was an animated and energetic storyteller who kept us entertained while informing us on the haunted history in Galena. The three generous drinks that accomanied the tour added to the authenticity.

Great storyteller, I highly recommend this tour. Tour guide is very animated and personable. The drinks are yummy, you learn a lot of “spooky” history and it’s just plain fun. Take this tour you won’t regret it.
