An entertaining and informative Ghost Walk through Halifax's historic downtown area. (The ONLY Ghost Walk in Halifax which visits a cemetery!)

Andy's fun Ghost Walk is typically offered Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings, starting at 7:30 p.m. (May through October) weather permitting. Duration: Two hours. $15.00 per person. Children under 13 are half price. Discounts are available to groups of ten or more people. Groups can also arrange a private tour on other mutually convenient days and times.

Andy was great. It was entertaining and interesting. He was funny and sarcastic and great with the kids. It had everything from War of 1813, Titanic, Halifax Explosion to dead politicians and prostitutes!! What more could you ask for. Would go again.

My friend and I were really pleased we chose to take this tour. First off, you don't have to reserve. Just show up. Prepare for lots of walking. We covered almost all of downtown and sure got our fitness steps done. It's not scary, but rather you hear all of the stories about ghosts and hauntings that are part of... More

In Andy's defence, this was only my 3rd ghost walk ever, my wife's 4th. Last one was in Lunenburg. Having said that, there was just something about his presentation that we thought could have been better - although what that is exactly we can't pinpoint. This one (as per our past experiences) was very informative and definitely entertaining and in... More

Andy is an awesome storyteller, and was able to engage both young and old! Loved the opportunity to walk through the streets of Halifax at dusk, and get a real feel for the history! Did we see someone up in that window? I'm thinking maybe we did!!!

Andy is delightful and knows to tell a good story. I would have loved to see more cemeteries or definitely more indoor locations, such as an old museum, church, theaters, etc. Adding a little spookiness with an hold handheld lantern would create an appeal to those easily spooked. The only recommendation I would submit is to ensure with participants that... More

We love doing ghost tours as we travel. This one was outstanding. The leader was very dramatic and drew us into the story. He was very knowledgable and interwove Halifax history into the tales. What a great way to experience Halifax at night.
