If you want to spend your evening on Clifton Hill, go ahead--but it was too busy, loud and crass for our tastes. On the other hand, if you want a truly unique, educational and 'quieter' evening, with an outstanding guide who grew up in the local area, you can't go wrong with a Ghost Walk with Linda, under a full...

We had a "private" tour with Linda; only our group of three, since the other two groups either cancelled or did not show up. She is an amazing guide, a great storyteller and a very nice person. I can't recommend this tour enough; if you go to Niagara Falls, you have to do it.

Thank you for your complimentary review! One party couldn't attend because the driver broke her arm and the other phoned the next day and had their dates mixed up. However, it worked out perfectly with our small group. You were so engaged, inquisitive and fun! This is what drives me. I hope the rest of your journey was amazing. It... More

It was a great night with a full moon. The guide was amazing. She knew everything from this neiborghood. The stories are really scary and the houses even more! I'm still thinking about them. We highly recommended it !!!!

Attended the Ghost walk last month. What an experience. Linda our guide really knows the old area of town quite well. The old stories were well presented. From the highwire guy falling into the gorge, to the very myseterious death of a bartender in one of the old hotels. Was my imagination just playing tricks with me or did I... More

Some friends and I did the Ghost Walk in July 2016. The walk was run by Renee, Linda's daughter. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging to listen to. Renee went above and beyond during the walk, showing us things and sharing information that we had a specific interest in. We walked through some unique areas of the Falls -... More

We did the overnight ghost experience. Linda was a great guide. So much information, because she grew up in the area and knew all the people and places. We had a great time at the hostel with more stories, wine and cheese. A wonderful evening.

This ghost walk was very interesting and filled with wonderful history of the area and personal knowledge from Linda, our guide. Loved the buildings, history and information. This was a nice and very affordable alternative to the busy commercialized "tourist" attractions for a very enjoyable evening. Would love to do the sleepover option next time. Thanks so much!
