Firstly, please ignore the last two reviews titled, "Ghost tour left me wanting more", and "A bit of a letdown'- the authors had several unrealistic expectations coupled with unwarranted assumptions. Also, I doubt they read the actual description of the tour as indicated on groupon.com and tourguys.com.
Now let me begin, I purchased a Groupon for the Toronto Ghost Tour at a cool $15 and participated in this event October 20th 2012. In all honesty, it was amazing, fun, and totally worth it. In fact, if it wasn't for the Groupon, I would have easily paid the retail price of $30 because this tour was worth every penny!
Our tour guy (Steve) was a knowledgeable history buff, exceptionally gifted story teller, and blended possible scientific explanations with the legends/stories surrounding each of the haunted places. As he had mentioned earlier on, he was not there to turn skeptics into believers or believers into skeptics, but rather to provide "good information and great stories". Also our tour was not rushed at all, and it went from 8pm-11pm.
As the authors of the previous comments mentioned their criticism due to the large crowd, it seems that they lack common sense given the fact that: 1.) you are going on a haunted ghost tour 11 days before Halloween, and 2.) you acquired a Groupon at 50% off the initial cost....
therefore, what do you think was going to happen?
Anyways, I will conclude by saying that Steve and Tourguys.com did an exceptional job, and that a MAJORITY of the other positive reviews speak volumes to their efforts. I had an amazing time, I will recommend this company, and I will be a future customer WITH OR WITHOUT A GROUPON. Lastly, a nice, big, quiet, politely behaved crowd with lots of energy (like the one I was in) greatly contributed to the momentum and fun!
Definitely worth checking out.
