We accidentally found this tour and didn't expect very much from it. We had never even heard of the town until we drove into it. That being said, it was absolutely fantastic! The stories were good and creepy, and the tour contained a lot of really interesting history facts thrown in for good measure. If you are a fan of... More

This was such a fun tour. Ninety minutes of strolling around beautiful Niagara on the Lake, hearing stories of ghostly sightings. Lady Stella Marie kept the group's attention with knowledge of the history of the town and many of its haunted locales. She even gave stories of houses that weren't on the tour to further intrigue the group and cement... More

OK. I'm a skeptic. I don't really believe in ghosts, but I do like a good story and when it kind of creeps me out in the process, so much the better. This is a great way to discover and rediscover some of the more interesting parts of NOTL, especially after dark. Our group was split into two smaller groups... More

The tour was great sightseeing, history lesson, and ghost tales all rolled up in one. Being that it's mid-november we bundled up and grabbed a hot drink prior to leaving on the walk. The tour had some great scary ghost tales told with enthusiasm, and theatrical flare. Highly recommend this walk in NOTL at night.

My husband and I recently stayed in Niagara on the Lake for our anniversary. We love all things scary & creepy...in fact the creepier the better. LOL We decided to check out the Ghost Walk tour...we weren't really sure what to expect, but we really enjoyed ourselves. It's about a 90 minute tour to different historical buildings in the area...
