Frequently Asked Questions about the Alton Hauntings Ghost Tours:
Is The Walking Tour actually a Walking Tour?
Yes, is the walking tour that we have been offering since 2000, but it is NOT non-stop walking for 3-4 hours. The tour is actually only about 15 blocks of total walking but the time on the tour is spent at and inside of the locations on the tour. We stop frequently and the tour goes at a leisurely pace, so it's not a strenuous evening. Note: We also offer bus tours!
Do We Give Out a List of the Places that we Go on the Tour?
No, unfortunately, we don't do that -- for several reasons. First, we like our guests to be surprised, plus we often change the tour, so it can occasionally vary from night to night. Finally, because of the imitation tours that are offered in Alton, we don't give out our tour stops because we don't want to help them anymore than we already are by providing material for their tours from Troy's book, Haunted Alton.
Is this the REAL "Haunted Alton" Tour?
Yes, this is the only tour in the area that is actually based on the bestselling book, Haunted Alton, and was created by the author, Troy Taylor, in 1999.
Do I need a Credit Card to Make Reservations?
Yes, all of the tour tickets are sold on a first come / first served basis, which means that the tickets have to be purchased in advance, just like tickets for a concert or event. Once your buy them, they are yours but can be sold to someone else as long as they check in at the time of the tour with your name.
Will I be sent tickets in the Mail?
No, when you register online, you will be emailed a confirmation form, which you can print out and bring to the tour with you. Since we only accept reservations online, everyone will receive their confirmation via email. Thanks!
