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

Andy Smith’s got stories and he’s got dramatic style, and he utilized both to take us on a spirited tour (pun intended) of old Halifax. Starting at the Citadel clock tower and ending at Alexander Keith’s brewery, Andy presented us with fascinating and (sometimes) ghoulish series of tales including everything from Halifax’s first murder to the burning of Washington during...

Our group of eight had a great day touring Halifax and Peggy's Cove. We had two cars because of our group size so Andy's good friend, Robert, guided the second car. We made numerous stops to see the waterfront, the Citadel, the cemetery burial site for many of the Titanic victims, the public gardens and then out to Peggy's Cove.... More

We are so glad that we took Andy Smith's Halifax ghost walk! It was as entertaining as it was genuinely interesting. Andy is a warm and friendly guide, who is very knowledgeable and has a good sense of humour. If you are visiting Halifax, make sure you take one of Andy's tours. Highly recommend it! Thanks Andy!

This tour was about the best tour I've ever taken. Andy is such a great, funny guy who can definitely get you rethinking everything you think you know about the supernatural and paranormal.
