My daughters and I had a great evening on Andy's tour! I would highly recommend this for all the family of any age. We have travelled from York, England which is the capital of Ghost walks, and I must say this is far better than any I've ever been on, you get history, legends and local tales all mixed together...

Went on the ghost tour last night. Very enjoyable, informative, and entertaining. I recommend it for everybody, not just tourists. It's hard to believe that you can live in a city for decades and not be aware of the history all around us. Add beautiful weather, a little exercise with the walking and it's the perfect summer night.

Andy was waiting for us as we came off the cruise ship. We toured with his twice - one day for Peggy's Cove/Titanic tour and one day for Bay of Fundy/Acadian tour. His knowledge of the area and it's history plus personal stories made the tours interesting and fun. Obviously, he has spent time in preparation to make his tours... More

A very interesting and informative tour. Time flew by . We were part of a large group on the down town ghost walk tour, but it felt like Andy was speaking to each of us personally. Great way to learn about Halifax while having fun. I would highly recommend his tours to everyone from children to seniors!

Cannot rate this highly enough. Andy treated us like VIPs, he really knows his subject. toured Halifax and a trip to Peggys' Cove which included a stop to try the best lobster ever. It was like being a day out with a favourite relative. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

Pre-planning excursions for our cruise I discovered this tour simply by accident while surfing the internet. Destined for a good time - Andy met us at the cruise terminal and off we went for a day filled with adventure and travels of the backroads of Halifax. Interesting stories of the Titanic victims at the cemetery, lovely view of local neighborhoods,... More

We did the awesome Tattle tour/ghost walk with Andy Smith, a New York actor living in Halifax and great story teller. A nice way to get to know the city and he makes history come alive.

Andy took us for a walking tour in downtown Halifax. He was entertaining and fun as well. His stories are great and he really knows how to grab your attention. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

A group of us went on a ghost walk of downtown Halifax on June 12, 2014 and we had a great time. Andy Smith is so knowledgeable about the ghosts and history of Halifax. Very informative and entertaining. Well worth the time and money.
