All About A Ghost Tour

230 S. Main St.
Galena IL 61036
Local: 815.777.9252


The original downtown walking tour, these stories are authentic and researched. They are experiences people have had in the past and present.

This is a leisurely walking tour of Main and Bench Streets. If there is a chance of inclement weather, the tour is held inside the DeSoto House Hotel, where a number of mysterious events have occurred. While visiting locations on the tour, ghost-like figures might appear again.

This is a great mix of history and mystery. Reservations are not required.

-Fri.-Sat., 8-9:30 p.m. Tours begin in the DeSoto House lobby.
-Sunday tours are available Memorial Day weekend, Labor Day weekend and every weekend in October.

-$15 per person.
-Free for kids through high school age.
