The darkest years of New France are just around the corner with Promenades Fantomes : The Original Ghost Walking Tour.

In the very heart of old Quebec City, this unique and interactive experience will offer scares, laughs and history. Our friendly and knowledgeable ghostly guides will gladly uncover the darker side of history of the colony, recounting the stories of worst criminals, sentences and even torture practices of the French or English regimes. Meet some of the colony’s worst scoundrels with our interactive street theatre “Crimes in New-France” Discover local superstitions and legends of yore, and visit scenes where death has left its mark with “Legends and superstitions”. On a lighter note, our jolly ghosts invite you to come relive the old Christmas traditions or experience winter as the French settlers did in our tour “Christmas in New-France”.

The executioner Jean Rattier and his wife Marie Riviere summon you, but one question remains: Will you dare to try it?

I have been on many ghost tours in the United States, but nothing has come remotely close to this ghost tour. My husband and I chose the Halloween edition interactive street theater in English the night before Halloween. We so enjoyed all the characters, their costumes, stories and their drama! We were in absolute awe of our guide who played... More

Jean Rattier (played by an actor) was our guide and we were entertained by other actors and actresses along the walk who depicted criminals and described how they had arrived in Quebec City, their crimes and punishments. They had great senses of humour as they described the gruesome details of their plights. Dressed in full costume and makeup to enhance... More

Before I get lost in the history of Quebec, especially the creepy parts - the guides tell it by far better. What differentiates them from other guides of haunted walks, at least the ones I did, is that they not only wear a cloak and *bam* there is your guide. Our guide Laurie was dressed as if she lived some... More

While not at all scary, our tour was a great way to see Old Quebec. Our guide, Valerie D., was entertaining and informative. I loved her!

We had a fun evening with our ghastly guide (also known as Jeremy) as we learned about crime and punishment from a former Quebec executioner. He was quite entertaining as he spoke about many historical events while taking us to the places where they happened. It was a family friendly time. I would highly recommend a meeting with one of...

Great fun with teens. Led by in English, we toured areas of Old QC we would have missed. Stories about punishment not suitable for children. Animated presenter kept us engaged throughout. Not ghostly scary. Great storyline of colonial Quebec. Highly recommend

This was an entertaining tour on a gorgeous night in a beautiful City. Our guide, Maude D., aka "Marie", told the story of her life and death and the crimes and punishments of the times she lived in Quebec City. It was a comfortably paced walk, but remember it is a walking tour! You can check in first at the... More

My son and I went to the 8 p.m. Legends and Superstitions tour on August 21st. Our guide was very good at setting a creepy tone - in the best way possible! She was also funny, and very knowledgeable.
