An entertaining and informative Ghost Walk through Halifax's historic downtown area. (The ONLY Ghost Walk in Halifax which visits a cemetery!) Andy Smith, an experienced tour guide who conducts these tours, also happens to be a professional actor (ACTRA member). Andy also operates the local tour company, Tattle Tours (a separate Trip Advisor listing) which gives lively walking tours and step-on guided tours. Andy's fun Ghost Walk is typically offered Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings, starting at 7:30 p.m. (May through October) weather permitting. Duration: Two hours. $15.00 per person. Children under 13 are half price. Discounts are available to groups of ten or more people. Groups can also arrange a private tour on other mutually convenient days and times.

Had a great time - our guide's a great story-teller, with TONS of info about Halifax. Great at answering questions. The tour is a little less 'ghosty' and a little more 'odd and interesting stories' - which was great for us! He adapted the tour to the interests of the group - always engaging. Thanks! Well worth doing, especially if... More

My boyfriend & i attended this tour and we had a blast. He hates touristy things but he had a great time learning some stories about the city he moved too. I enjoyed how interactive he was and learning historical information and a few creepy facts. I tell all my clients about this walk as it really is fun for... More

Lots of fun, very informative, just spooky enough. Definitely worth more than $10 CA. Did not personally see any actual ghosts :-(

This guy knows what he's doing. Not only was the walk interesting and informative (2 of us attended 7 pm in October), he was also animated the whole time, keeping the crowd (about 45 people including children) entertained and involved. The price was very reasonable at $10 CA per person (lasting about 90 minutes), and even though there was a... More

Our group of 5 (3 parents and two 20-year old 'kids') thoroughly enjoyed Andy's Halifax Ghost Walk on this extremely pleasant Thanksgiving Sunday night. His presentation is well delivered, full of historic facts and stories, splashed with some ghostly tales about a few of the people featured in the history lesson. Lots of fun including good group interaction with the... More

We went on this tour last night, and had a fantastic time. The stories were abundant and at time very creepy, everything you want from a ghost walk. On top of that it was all down hill and ended at a brewery, perfect for Halifax.
