    Stop: 90 minutes
    Downtown Montreal is a very busy and bustling place. With towering skyscrapers and a professional workforce that empties out by 5 p.m., it’s the last place one would expect to encounter the paranormal. However, just beneath the veneer of urban respectability lie many dark secrets, from forgotten cemeteries to ghost-infested buildings, and the numerous hauntings that go with them. The Haunted Downtown ghost walk visits haunted bars, a forgotten graveyard, hotels rife with paranormal activity, and other locations where ghosts have been spotted!

Really enjoyed our 1.5 hour walk with Jason aka Morty and learned much about places in Montreal that are so rich in history. 1.5 hours is a comfortable amount of time to keep everybody's attention. Jason aka Morty is a great storyteller and provides plenty of insight.
Since Montreal downtown was a shambles when we did the tour (filming, streets closed, traffic chaos), it was sometimes difficult to hear what Jason aka Morty was saying. We were a large group so it was difficult for us all to be facing the guide. Would certainly recommend some sort of audio device which amplifies the voice of the guide.

Thanks for this great review, which I will certainly pass along to Jason aka Morty, who is a great storyteller indeed! It is true that sometimes Montreal's downtown is in a shambles with all of the construction, as it is now, and we try our best to find spots that are the most suitable to tell the stories. This can be challenging when areas are blocked off, as they are at the moment, and we will take your suggestion into account for future tours when our normal route is disrupted. Thanks again for the wonderful review!

This is a great socially distanced activity. It's spooky but not overly scary. You get to learn so much about the city's history in a fun and entertaining way. The guide that gave us the tour was actually the owner of the company and he was so knowledgeable and did an absolutely fantastic job. I've also done haunted griffintown, which is excellent as well!

Thank you for being such a great supporter and for your kind words! We do insist on social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic and thank you for mentioning that. We also offer face masks and hand sanitizer to all of our clients. We certainly do not want to create any new ghosts by failing to recognize Health & Safety guidelines from the Public Health Department. Thanks again for the great review!

This waking tour is great, and definitely not just for one kind of audience. This activity appeals to both tourists and long time Montreal residents. There stories told on this walking tour provide humour, history, and spookiness, leaving all those in the audience satisfied and entertained.

Thanks for reviewing Haunted Downtown, PJD! This year, due to the pandemic, we are catering mostly to locals but usually there is an exciting mix of tourists from all over the planet and local Montrealers! Thank you for your thoughts and kind words! We really appreciate it!

We walked in some of the speediest parts of downtown and it only added to the chilling experience. The guide was a great story teller and pointed out several businesses with Hauntings that we plan on visiting the next night. Loved the history of the city and its haunting past.

Good storytelling and performance. Learned a different side to my city and some of my old haunts I’ve frequented.

I really wanted to go inside some of the haunted sites... Covid-19 measures will not permit it. I will be attending future events for sure so hopefully we can get the full evening experience by the time this pandemic is over.

Thanks for reviewing Haunted Downtown! Yes, Covid-19 has been very challenging and we have not been able to offer our Haunted Pub Crawl for a long time now, something you might enjoy (it visits 3 haunted bars!). In the meantime, our ghost tours are all outdoors with a maximum of 8 clients due to public health regulations. Thanks again for attending - we look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Added this to our Montreal weekend plans since it’s October and seemed like a neat way to see the city. It was a really cool tour, spooky with some horror story elements thrown in. He definitely knows his stuff. Would love to do another one of his tours sometime!

So we lived in Montreal for many years and I have a thing for ghost stories, yet every single stop/story was new to us and each was equally fascinating and gloomy as told excitingly by the talented Madame Morphine. We learned about the shocking, sad, or outright scary past of nightclubs, parks, hotels, and places you would never expect; a whole new level of this lovely city.

We had the chance to talk to the founder of Haunted Montreal, Donovan King, who welcomed us at the meeting point. Donovan is such a lovely and interesting character and very, very much into his profession. His passion shows through at every step of the tour. Our guide Madame Morphine was the cherry on the cake, with “the bone in her hair”, as our son noticed, and brilliant performance in story telling. We had a blast and will definitely attend their other tours soon. Thank you guys so much!

I did the downtown tour on Halloween, and even though it was cold and pouring rain, our tour guide (Madame Morphine) was fantastic and engaging. An extremely unique experience I'd recommend to anyone with an interest in ghost stories!

Thank you for this great review! It's so nice to see such positivity, especially given the inclement weather you endured! The weather this Hallowe'en was truly scary and Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante even tried to delay it by a day - unsuccessfully, I might add! Thank you for recognizing our work as unique and for your kind words about Madame Morphine's fantastic performance. I will be sure to pass this glowing review along to her!

I visited Montreal on a whim, not knowing a thing about it other than it’s considered “French Canada”. This tour was the first tour I participated in upon my arrival and I’m glad I did! I enjoy stories about hauntings but was really surprised to hear of the darker history as well. Donovan was a charismatic, engaging host. This tour is a great way to get your visit to Montreal started.

Thanks for reviewing Haunted Montreal! While it's true that Montreal is a part of "French Canada", it is also one of the most tri-lingual cities on Earth and about 40% of "French-Canada" has Irish roots! Montreal, as a city that was doubly colonized, has an extremely dark history, and hence is likely the most haunted city in North America! I am so glad you enjoyed your experience and I thank you for your kind words about my storytelling and hosting.
