Went on the walk on a Tuesday and it was surprisingly busy (the group had to split into two). It was a nice walk stopping in a few places I probably would not have found on my own. I think overall the tour is designed for families as none of the ghost stories were very scary/gruesome. I was a little... More

Great way to learn the history of old St. John's and hear of the surprises the city still has in store for hapless souls. Presentation was fantastic and it helped that the fog rolled in for ambiance. Would have been great even without it. :)

We loved the haunted hike! Takes place after dark in the downtown neighbourhood... Walk through the streets and listen to the great storyteller tell stories of local historical value, ghost sightings and see the wonderful jellybean houses. They do a wonderful job and the price is great value for an evening of fun!

We went on the murderers tour, which I understand is different from the Ghosts and Ghouls tour. This is the third time I've done the Haunted Hike, and I learn something new every time! The Guide was very knowledgeable as well as an accomplished story teller. Fun time with friends, but I wouldn't recommend it foe younger children or for... More

We loved the man telling the stories and taking us out and about. I would not say the stories were as ghostly as I expected but our entire family enjoyed it.

We were in St John's for a conference.....on Haloween.....after being in leetings and sitting on a bus tour we did not know if we could make it up those hills. It was perfect! Our guide , a super storyteller, was awesome. He told is old tales of ghostly happenings, while we toured the little streets and alleys of downtown. SO... More

Nice to walk around the city at night. I've done similar tours such as the Ottawa haunted walk and the Night Watchman Tour in Rothenburg Germany. I love these sort of activities. This tour goes right up there with those ones. I really enjoyed the spooky (real) stories! Be prepared to walk from one spooky location to the next!

This was a fast paced hour and a half of walking up and down hills. You needed to rush to keep up....not good for people with accessibility issues. Great guide, though, with believable tales.

Hailing originally from Gander, my family visited St. John's a lot when I was a child, but I was always to scared to go on the Haunted Hike. Now being much older (if not wiser) I finally went on the walk as a (mostly) mature adult and loved it! The guide was a great combination of eerie and entertaining while... More
