The best evening entertainment and just $7 dollars. Our 'victorian' host was humorous and informative. We loved the candle lanterns.

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

This tour was one of the highlights of our recent vacation. The tour guide, a 10th generation Acadian, is knowledgeable, personable, and charming. The tour focuses less on the macabre, and instead introduces you to the major time periods and groups living in Annapolis Royal. Thoroughly educational and entertaining.

The tour was a highlight of our stay in Canada. The guide was a local with extensive knowledge that he was pleased to share. Take insect repellant.

“Go - you will enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This tour is amazing. The guide took us through the Annapolis Graveyard at night with lanterns and explained the history of the town through the graves that we saw. VERY knowledgeable guide who grew up in the region. There were kids in our group that really enjoyed the tour. Worth it!

“Informative & Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

There isnt much to do at night in Annapolis Royal so we went on the graveyard tour. It was pouring rain but that didnt bother anyone. It was $7.00 to get the tour, you got a lantern to carry around the graveyard which added to the experience. The guild was very informative & good at his job. We were entertained & left knowing more. Would definitely recommend. It does involve walking on uneven surfaces in dim light.
