A friend and I did this a few weeks ago. We had a fellow Brit tour guide - Michael who was brilliant! He told us he was a resident of Quebec for many years so was knowledgeable about the region. He had great acting skills and a fab story teller. He certainly knew to pick on us two chickens which... More

A ghost tour is one of the best ways to learn about the history of a place. The guide was entertaining and informative and did a great job of remaining in character and making sure that things went smoothly. This tour enhanced my knowledge and experience of Quebec City; I saw some streets and attractions I wouldn't have otherwise and... More

For those who have trouble walking uphill for a long distance, you should skip this one. The tour starts at the end of the Rue Petit Champlain and ends in front of the Chateau Frontenac. If you've seen the cliffs of Quebec City, you know this a pretty steep climb. True, the tour takes a gradual route, but it's still... More

We took this tour a few weeks ago and definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Quebec City. Our tour guide, Vivian, was excellent. She is a talented story teller and really brought the ghostly history of Old Quebec to life. The tour goes off the beaten path taking you to parts of the city you mostly likely wouldn't ordinarily...

It was really great, and pretty spooky. There were some good stories, but I was hoping for people to dress up as ghosts and scare us. It didn't happen...but it was still a great time and totally worth the price!

Hi Dani M! We are glad you appreciated our spooky world. The concept of our Tours is inspired by the art of storytelling which goes back to the Middle-Age, where story-teller went alone from castel to castle to tell stories to the Lords to entertain them uniquely with their stories. This is why their is nobody hidden behind a bush... More

Loved this tour, the guide was a PHD in history so he gave us lots of tips, and even suggested a good place to get breakfast in the morning (it was awesome). Great story teller, fantastic value!

We took the tour in late July and had a great time. We had the family with us which included 3 teenagers. They enjoyed the history/stories and the guide was very fun. Had a couple of "scare" moments that the kids really liked. You do get to see parts of Old Quebec City that you normally wouldn't on a tour.... More

Hi Gator 91, Thank you for you contribution. We are glad that your appreciated our spooky world. Québec city is a hilly city indeed and good walking shoes are required if you want to go from the upper town to the lower town or the other way round! Spooky regards, Romain More

I signed up on a whim and was glad I did. Little connection between the walk and talk, the walk is really a device to present the information in a non-museum format. Lots of information on antique punishment, few explicit tales of horror. Not a scholarly presentation, but good entertainment and great with kids of all ages.

I highly recommend this as a must-do when you are visiting Quebec City. We did the English tour August 11th 2014. Our tour guide William Black was great, he did a great job narrating and seemed to really enjoy his job. He was funny and we had some nice chats with him as we were walking to the different locations.... More

Tour guide, Vivian-sp?, was superb. The tour was an historical accounting of the 'dark side' of Vieux Quebec's history from executions to a 1912 liner sinking in the St. Lawrence to eerie accounts of ghostly apparitions based on actual, historical people and/or events. The tour was narrated in a very dramatic fashion by Vivian who led our group, by candlelight,... More
