Very interesting way to learn a bit more about Halifax history - guide is an actor, knows tons about Halifax, great at telling stories and answering questions. Flexible at adapting the trip to the interests of the group. Well worth it!

A great way to spend an evening..walking the streets of Halifax learning of the history and hauntings of the area. Mom and I go away every May long weekend to Inns that are known for their Spirit Activity. This was just another great addition to an already spooky weekend. Andy is very knowledgeable and entertaining :)

We took the tour on the 3rd May 2015. There was only 4 of us on the walk. Myself and my wife along with two friends had the best time. It is a great walk filled with not only ghost stories,but actual historical facts about Halifax. Andy is a wealth of knowledge and made each of us a participant in... More

Don't miss a chance to book Andy / Tattle Tours for your visit to Halifax. Knowledgeable about all things Halifax, Andy gave us an excellent tour that included a trip to Peggy's Cove. Andy has a Chrysler mini van that makes it a little tight for 6. Thanks Andy, we had a great day!

Andy Smith gave our party of 5 a good informative tour of Halifax. The weather did not cooperate but the tour was still very good. It's always a little nerve racking to get off the ship and hope your tour guide is there and we found this company right on top of things.

I cannot say enough about Tattle Tours! A group of five on a cruise had booked Andy for a tour of Halifax and Peggy's Cove. The tour was exactly what we wanted it to be. Andy's stories and information were entertaining and informative. He took us to places most of the cruise tours visit (and some they do not), and... More

We were fortunate enough to be able to join Andy's ghost walk on the Sunday night of the September long weekend. Andy's stories not only captured the "spiritual" side of Halifax but also provided a great deal of fact regarding the history of Halifax. We loved the way that he included the children on the tour in the storytelling but... More

My friend stumbled upon this historical walking tour which also includes tales of the ghosts that many people feel haunt this city. Andy who does the tour is an actor and was lots of fun. There must have been at least 35 people on the tour and it ran from 7:30-9:30 pm. The cost was only $10.00 and it was... More

Andy Smith was the attraction. He was our driver Tour guide for 5 hours. We took a short tour around Halifax,then out to Peggy's cove. We also stopped at some small quaint fishing villages. At the cemetery where so many victims of the Titanic were interred, it was Andy who made it interesting. We would recommend him to anyone looking... More
