This is a great way to get out learn about Ottawa and visit some interested places. They also have walks in Kingston and Toronto that you should check out. I have done almost all of them. If you sign up for their newsletter you get upcoming events and sometimes a discount code! I would totally recommended this to everyone...

You MUST take part in the Haunted Walks if you have any interest in history, ghost stories, Ottawa itself or just like to have a good time. The guides are extremely knowledgeable and can certainly spin a good yarn. We strongly suggest the Hallowe'en tours as you get that little bit extra.

I have been on several of the tours and loved them. This one definitely didn't disappoint. Was very interesting learning the dark history of the city. Very spooky.

I have sent a number of school groups on a Haunted Walks tour over the years, and the feed back has been very good. It's a solid night out for them (ages 12 to 18). I have also taken my family and enjoyed the tour. :o)

Once I visited the London Dugeon in UK and didn't enjoy the experience because I found everything too fake, so I had never thought of going on this walk assuming this would be the same. I was wrong! The walk is not about special effects or just storytelling, it is in fact a historical tour of Ottawa from a different... More

Went on the Ghosts and Gallows walking tour, it takes you through the city center and into the old Carleton jail - thought it would be a little cheesy but it was actually really interesting, lots of history facts I never knew about! Our guide was very nice and made our tour very enjoyable, good job! I highly recommend this... More

We went on the classic haunted walk (original haunted walk I guess), and it was great. I am not a fan of very scary stories so these stories were perfect, they were scary enough without being too intense.

Hat's off to the inventor and researchers. I brought my team for an evening out with supper to follow. The evening weather was perfect, the information was very interesting and the guide did a great job! A fantastic experience and made for interesting supper conversation afterwards. Thank you for making our evening complete! Dawn D

I have lived in Ottawa my entire life and am SO ignorant to the amount of history in my own back yard, it's quite sad! I went on this walk with my husband, teenage children and a couple of friends and we had a BLAST! Our tour guide, Charlie, was a hoot and my 13 yr old daughter hung on... More

We wanted to do something fun on one of our last days in Ottawa, we decided to do a haunted tour, since it was about 6 years since we did one. We decided on Ghosts and Gallows. Our tour guide was very entertaining, her story telling was great, she was really into character. She was very knowledgeable and took her... More
