Was a great activity. We went on the walk as part of the Birthday celebration for my 13 year old daughter. Was very much enjoyed by all. Would recommend it. However, wear good walking shoes and be prepared for the walk. Our tour Guide, Lady Delia (Brittany or Lady Laurier) was wonderful. Very entertaining.

Went we planned to come to Ottawa, my now thirteen year old said he wanted to go to the Ottawa one. We did, and it was a nice walk around the city, but... More

Our tour guide Shauna was an engaging and informative tour guide who was both the right mix of knowledgeable and entertaining. We would recommend her and this tour to anyone who would listen :)

I went on the Crime and Punishment Jail tour with friends with Jimmy as a tour guide. Jimmy was excellent. He was extremely funny (But spooky when he had to be) and was able to accurately answer any questions we had. I learned a lot about not only Ottawa, but Canada's jail and crime history along the way. Most of... More

Our tour guide Jimmy was fantastic, immediately engaging the group captivating our attention with his stories. He was exceptionally funny and had the perfect balance of humour and history. His knowledge was impeccable an he was easily able to answer all our questions and provide additional information throughout the tour. A great insight into Canada's early jail system.

My niece and nephew got to do the duel and when asked "Any last words?", he said to his sister "I hope you die!" Hilarious! Also had fun... More

My daughter and I took the Haunted Walk of Ottawa at 9 pm and it was all we hoped it would be. Our guide Charlie, dressed in his attire of black cape, black clothes, black hat and a lantern played his part very well he knew when to add dramatic effects to make his stories bone chilling and at times...
