  • What time of the year do the Tours Run?
    • St Charles Ghost Tours run 12 months out of the year, Not just Halloween. This is an ongoing research project, and ghosts are not "seasonal."
  • Where does the tour start and stop?
    • The tour begins and ends in front of the Historical Society Building on the corner of South Main and Jefferson.

      Look for the signs (and the crowds).
      The actual address is 101 South Main, 63301
      (Plug that into your GPS or into MapQuest).

      The Historical Society building is a big white building with a long staircase in front. It says "City Hall" on the top.

      Look for the signs and for Tour Guides with "St. Charles Ghost Tours" embroidered on their shirts.
  • What time do the tours run?
    • The tours are scheduled for Friday and Saturday at 7:00p, 9:30p and sometimes (if there is enough demand) at Midnight.

      Special tours (other dates and times) can always be arranged for Groups of 5 or more.

      Please note, the tours start on time. Please arrive a bit early to check in.
  • How long does the tour last? 
    • The walking tours last about 90-120 Minutes.
      (If we see something really interesting occurs, we will not walk away from it.)
  • What does "Authorized" mean?
    • Special permits (From the City of Saint Charles) are required before tours can be run.

      Without these permits, tour guides, and even tour participants can be cited for trespassing and other violations.

      We are the only Ghost tour in St. Charles that has these permits.

      With our tours, you are fully protected and very much welcomed by the City and the Local Tourist authority!

      This is a great way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or other special event. St Charles Ghost Tours can also be a great company activity.

      So much better than a picnic or a stuffy dinner meeting!

  • Does the tour take you inside the actual haunted buildings on Main Street?
    • As I am sure you know, most of the buildings along South Main are private businesses and residences. There are a number of interesting “outside” sites and we often experience manifestations along the way. For example, near Winery of the Little hills, we visit a place that was a graveyard from 1750 to 1853. In 1853, they moved the graveyard but did not move the bodies…

      Keep in mind that St Charles Ghost tours visits and examines public spaces. South Main Street in St. Charles is a commercial district and we will not enter any private businesses or residences without permission. Please respect the rights and privacy of the people living and working here.

      If you see something interesting in a shop or a window, make a note and come back later, during business hours. One of the reasons the Merchants along Main Street like us is because we bring them customers but do not invade their space.

      You may, of course, stop into a restaurant for a soft drink or other refreshment, but we cannot block any entranceways, invade private spaces or in general, go anywhere we are not encouraged to enter.

  • Do the tour guides bring with them any paranormal detection equipment or is that up to the participants?
    • You are free to bring any equipment you have – and know how to use – but your guide will usually have an EMF detector and perhaps some specialized, custom made devices.

      Cameras, Video and Tape recorders are encouraged. Many people go home with documentation of ghostly activity.

      St Charles Ghost tours often has other equipment available. Check with us for availability and types.
