We did this walk as a last minute something to do. We really enjoyed it and found out lots of information about the City of Ottawa. We went into the old gaol and heard about the ghost. Our daughter still talks of this walk. The weather was good too. We did this in 2010.

We did the original haunted walk of Ottawa, what a great surprise! Our guide was wonderful, with his black cloak and lantern, completely in his role. He knew how to engage his group in his stories. Had a blast and learned cool history of Ottawa. Will certainly go back to do the other available walks.

We did the Haunted Walk at Upper Canada Village on 23 August. Erica was wonderful! She not only had a talent for the mysterious, but her knowledge about the history of the area was incredible - highly educated and passionate about history.

We enjoyed the stories as she told them of the buildings - and their ghostly tenants - that had been assembled from various nearby places including the lost villages. We know story telling is a skill and the more you do... More

My wife and I spent an enjoyable evening walking around Ottawa while Charlie guided and entertained us with historic stories of the ghostly side of the city. I would highly recommend it for couples and family alike. Good job guys.

Not your typical Haunted Walk, but so worth it! There is no better way to learn about Ottawa and some of Canada's past then with this interactive and educational tour. The Professor (Margo) was engaging and on point. I have lived in Ottawa all my life and learn so much in just those two hours that I plan on going... More

I had an amazing time at the Hunted Walk of Ottawa. I found it very interesting and engaging, as well as spooky at some points. Even thought I tend to be skeptical when it comes to this sort of things, I had a lot of fun, and the guide was outstanding. I would definitely recommend it!
