Andy provided outstanding service and truly listened to what was important to us. All of his communications with me in planning our visit had been clear and thorough whether he was answering my many questions or giving us directions on where to meet at the pier. Unlike the many other Canadian tour guides we’ve had, he was genuinely willing to... More

Hello . . . Thank you for your kind words and description of my Peggy's Cove-Halifax Tour. Yes, we braved the wild, rainy weather that day and, I hope, made the most of it. And I enjoyed meeting you and your family. Cheers! More

I've taken the ghost walk tour twice with Andy. The first time I went was a few years ago with a group of people from my work and the second time was just last week for Orientation Week at Dalhousie University. Whether it's your first time on a ghost tour, your first time in Halifax, or if you've lived here... More

I'm 11, and went on the ghost walk with my dad. We had a great 2 hours with the rest of the group! We walked around downtown Halifax and had a very nice and very funny tour guide named Andy.The places we went to were so informative and interesting! My favourite part was going into the old graveyard at night!... More

My wife and I took the Halifax ghost tour on a warm Friday night and enjoyed it thoroughly. Andy was very knowledgeable about the ghost stories, and his love of Halifax came through as well. We had a large group with a number of children and Andy kept everyone engaged. Highly recommended.

Loved this ghost walk! I went along with 3 friends we all thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. It starts at the citadel clock tower and lasts about an hour and a half. Very easy route, its all downhill so the hardest part is getting there. There weren't as many spooky stories as I was expecting but the guide is a great... More

Great activity that takes you on a stroll through the streets of the pleasant city of Halifax, allows you to learn some history, and be entertained all the while. Our son was practically tripping over himself to be near Andy as he shared his tales so as not to miss a word.

The tour was fun and very very interesting, regardless if you believe in ghosts or not. You will definitely learn something. My wife and I very much enjoyed it. There were several children on this tour, so I feel Andy may have been a bit more filtered in the nitty gritty facts. Would have loved to hear the unfiltered stories... More
