I am a resident of Dartmouth and never have I been on a tour - what a great experience. I really enjoyed this tour and the personality of our host. I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat and I look forward to doing it again someday with more ppl that I can share with :)

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

Thank you for your lovely review. We (Robert and I) certainly enjoyed showing you this part of the world, discussing our rich culture and history. And it's always a treat to see people appreciating the 'bounty of the sea'. Hope the rest of your travels were fun and informative. 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!

last night I took my Fiancee and 12 year old (soon to be) step daughter on Andy's ghost walk of Halifax. He did an amazing job of interacting with as many people as possible (the group was large, probably 35 people) and making sure everyone was able to hear all the information he was telling us. my daughter loved the...

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. He does a fantastic job at telling stories, and makes them sound just as creepy as they should. I work in a hotel in Halifax and his... More

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!
