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

I went on the tour the night if September 24, and enjoyed every minute of it! The stories were interesting and mingled with accounts of personal experiences! Andy is a great story teller and actually takes the time to talk and get to know the group he's presenting to. This is the best ghost tour I've been on around Halifax,... 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.

I love ghost tours, mostly for the folkloric tales of the city's inhabitants with a twist of spookiness. Andy, being an actor, was a great performer/ guide, great narrator that kept the audience's attention aroused. It was a great evening activity, we finished it off at Pressgang, an old judge's house from Halifax, one of the oldest settlers, now a... More
