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

I was there at the Old Clock Tower on a Wednesday at 7:30 pm together with 10 more people but the guide did not come.

You must've shown up for the other ghost walk in Halifax. Mine typically begins at 7:30 p.m. (The other begins at 8:30 p.m.). And that evening, I gave my tour and had 38 people! Sorry for any confusion. 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

This was a fantastic evening! We had 30 people of all different shapes and sizes and everyone enjoyed the tour. Andy was fun, engaging, knowledgeable about the city. Most of the people in our group are from Halifax and we all had a wonderful time getting to know some of the darkest, most hidden, secrets of our fair city.

I highly recommend taking a behind-the-scenes look at Halifax with Tattle Tours. We had fun hiking up and down the steep streets and grassy knolls while listening to Andy Smith tell stories about this old harbor town. He knows his history, that's for sure, which is why we went in the first place. This was a fun way to learn... More

Andy makes historic Halifax come alive, with his entertaining stories about a time long ago. Halifax in an old port city, established in the mid 1700's, with a very checkered past. Andy is well educated on the topic and will make this the most entraining history lesson you will ever have. From beer barons and press gangs to prostitutes and... More

Hello: Thank you for your very kind words! As I may have explained that evening, my Ghost Walk really comes alive when people are open and animated. And I appreciate the fact that you were (and obviously are)! You and your your friends were fun! More

We were in Halifax for meetings and one of the activities was the Ghost Tour and it was very enjoyable. Adam was a captivating host and I learned so much about the history of Halifax. If i could say, the only disappointing part of the tour is that I dìdn`t see a ghost lol. I would highly recommend this tour.

We really loved our ghost tour experience, which took us through most of downtown. Andy is clearly an excellent actor and keeps the tour interesting and engaging. We learned more about the history of Halifax on this tour than on any others we had been on during our stay, and definitely enjoyed it the most! Would highly recommend this experience!
