A nice mix of spooky and quaint, this walk was thoroughly entertaining. It is a nice way to spend an evening getting familiar with portions of the city that you would not seek out otherwise, but definitely have their charm.

We purchased a couple of tickets through Groupon and attended the Walk in October. It really wasn't what we were expecting. We were under the impression that we would be going inside all of these old hotels and jails however it was simply walking outside, stopping by an old landmark and listening to a story. We did not get to... More

Hi Happy_Traveller! Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The tour we offered through Groupon is our Original Haunted Walk which was advertised on Groupon and our own website as a completely "outdoor" tour - no mention of going inside any buildings at all. Did you happen to read either of those descriptions before purchasing? It does... More

It was a great tour. The guide was very informed. I lived in Ottawa my whole life. Some of the stories I knew, some I didn't. All were enjoyable. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to get to know this wonderful city and its varied and fascinating history.

In addition to the Haunted stories, there was a lot of historical facts about downtown Ottawa, that we drove two days around and never suspected it was there. The old jail is really creepy.

Went for a Haunted Walk before Ottawa. The door that slammed in the old Ottawa Jail seemed a bit contrived, but the host was great and it was great to learn a little history of Ottawa.

Recently had the chance to enjoy "Incident at the Bunker...A Zombie Adventure". Did the haunted Halloween walk last year with this company so we knew we were in good hands! Truly enjoyed checking out the Diefenbunker and the "Incident" was wonderfully delicious, campy fun.

The incident at the bunker was really well done. We were laughing the whole time and we found the premise and the tour guide Hamish very entertaining. A great Halloween activity and a fun, unique way to see the bunker! Thanks!

Amanda was our tour guide for the Ghosts and Gallows walk on Halloween night and did a great job telling the stories and taking us through the jail. Wish we had more time to spend within the jail to explore!
