Lexi did a remarkable job at bringing the ghost stories to life. He encouraged audience participation and kept things fun.


Fantastic, fun and informative!!! Great time and great food and drinks our tour host was so great and had great stories!


The guide was amazing. Made the experience extremely memorable. I’ll recommend others to go and got a rich history on Shakey and Milwaukee area.


The history was so interesting and the tour guide, Elizabeth, was wonderful! We will def visit again and enjoy more cocktails


I didn’t really enjoy this tour. I thought Shakers was dirty, unsafe in the basement (wires going everywhere, a place to store lots of old equipment), cigar and cigarette smoke(should have expected that on my part). I did 2 other tours in Milwaukee through Viator, so I did have something to compare Shakers to. I really wouldn’t recommend it.


Elizabeth was a great tour guide. Entertaining and kept your interest. Gave great information on the history of Shakers. Fun night!!


It seemed to be filled with history facts, I don’t know how much is true or not. I personally didn’t feel any super natural but it was entertaining and something to do.


The tour was awesome! It was a random Thursday night and no one else signed up so our tour guide Kirsten basically gave us a private tour. She was super knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. She kept it fun and light yet respectful of the history and spirits. It was my first ghost tour, but not my husband’s. He’s more skeptical than I am and even he said he had some weird heavy feelings during certain parts. I thought I’d get too scared but the ghosts here seem to be fairly benign (thank goodness). Kirstin did a great job reminding us to take photos throughout the tour. She said sometimes it takes a few weeks for things to show up in photos so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. 👻 I forgot that it’s a cigar bar so I was a bit surprised by the smoke. I can’t fault them for that of course, but I’d suggest a mask if you’re sensitive. Overall, highly recommend!


This is my favorite tour, I go every year. It's fun, quick, has a rich history, the story never gets old for me. I get the best pics every time, the venue is fabulous, I love their drinks! Kirsten gave the best tour, very informative and fun!


The tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was a beautiful place. If you have the time I highly reccomend.
