My girlfriend and I went on the Ghost and Gallows tour. We had a great time and our tour guide Caitlyn was very enthusiastic! You could tell she enjoyed her job which helped us have even more fun. I would definitely recommend this to tourists or even people living in the city. I'm from Ottawa and learned new things from... More

The Haunted Walk tour of Ottawa took me to the Carlton County Gaol, which turned out to be both very interesting and scary. The tour guide (Jim) had a background in theater and was very good at story telling and keeping the group informed and entertained. I learned a lot about the city, and heard of strange and dramatic historical... More

Our tour guide, Jim, made the most of his information and was dramatic but sincere throughout. In spite of some rain and loud passers-by, he kept our group's attention with his story-telling. We were engaged, entertained and informed ... well done Jim and Haunted Walk! I would highly recommend this tour for locals and visitors alike. ~ Katie M.

Ray and Kathleen We enjoyed the tour of Ottawa's gaol and haunted sites, it was a cold and wet night which added to the atmosphere the stories told were well researched and factual and the tour guides looked the part with their black attire and lantern. Our guide told of the well researched facts and the stories seemed to take... More

A friend and I went on the Original Haunted Walk. Our group included people from Calgary, Australia and England. A pretty good sized crowd for a Tuesday night. The walk lasted more than 90 minutes; good bang for your buck. The walk takes you around downtown Ottawa near Parliament Hill, the Chateau Laurier and the Rideau Canal as well as... More

When we read the header of a haunted walk, we expected to have a bit of a Hollywood type experience with people jumping out, weird customes and overall Halloween feel. It was far from it. The walk is essentially visiting Ottawa buildings (all from the outside) and stopping at various points of interest and our host telling tales of hauntings... More

The haunted walk trip we experienced was the ghosts and gallows . It was a great learning opportunity and it was beautiful to see the buildings lit up at night. Our y Tour guide Lilly was very knowledgable and spoke loud enough for everyone to hear. It was reasonably priced. Great way to spend the evening.

The Ghost and the Gallows tour was full of interesting historical tidbits. The tour of the jail was the highlight for sure. It's a creepy place; tiny cells, darkly light hallways and the gallows was especially creepy. Totally worth the money and Charlie the tour guide was great.

My boyfriend and I are from Ottawa, and it was our first time doing the Haunted Walk of Ottawa, we did the Ghost and the Gallows tour and it was something else that's for sure! Our guide Charlie was very good at telling the stories, and kept us all on the edge which made everything all much more scarier. If... More

We really had a great experience on the Time Travel Trail Tour of Ottawa. This tour should be especially enjoyable for fans of a certain long-running British time travel television series, but anyone would have a good time on this tour. Many interesting facts were shared about Ottawa and Canadian history that surprised us, and there were fun interactive activities.... More
