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

My husband and I really enjoyed the Original Haunted Walk Tour last night. Our guide, Charlie, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We were impressed by the fact that the Haunted Walk company does thorough research to confirm that what the guides tell the customers is true, not just some ghostly myths. We learned a lot about Ottawa history and got... More

A friend & I went on the Original Haunted Walk Tour on Monday, Sept. 22nd. We enjoyed the tour very much and loved the interesting stories and history. We are both from Ottawa and were amazed at how beautiful our city looked at night.. We would highly recommend this tour.

Would love to have more paranormal experiences than just learning about history. I felt as though the tour guide was too frightened and was rushing (did in fact mention a lot of "fear") which made everything rushed. I wish that in the future perhaps they can offer tours or investigation sessions where we can be given the opportunity to attend... More

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
