Went on the Custom House Ghost Hunt with a group of family and friends that were believers, sceptics and non-believers. Daniel did an amazing job telling the history and legends of the building. Wouldn't have been the same without him. Being able to use the tools and free time to do your own hunting was incredible. Even the sceptics and... More

This was a lot of fun. I do recommend it. Learned a lot about the history of the area in addition to the ghost lore. Our guide was great, very informative and kept the pace up. She was a delight. If you are looking for something a little different and fun this is the thing to do in Niagara on... More

This tour is a must do for those 'ghost believers' out there. My group and I had a fantastic time and the tour guide was great!

We have always wanted to take this tour as we often go to NOTL frequently for our Summer Vacation so this past Summer we finally did it. We thought it was very enjoyable and fascinating. Gave us a historical background on the town too which was extra interesting. The tour guide is a real character and was very entertaining. I... More

Wendela, our guide was terrific and she appeared to float along :) She made the whole experience fun and interesting! The stories were informative and made me have goosebumps. Learning the history of NOL and it's legends really makes you appreciate the area even more. Tip: bring a mini flash light and dress warm if it's cool. Starbucks is open... More

An enjoyable walk through NOTL with stops at some of the historic locations as well as at some of the not so well known. The tour guide was a good story teller, but I personally found the stories to be predictable. We did learn a bit of history about the town and the town is a beautiful outdoor classroom. Certainly...

Had a great time on our Ghost Walk with "Wendella" She was very descriptive and enthusiastic about the history and ghost related tales. Her look is very dark and mysterious. The walking and tale telling at intervals was cool; what could have made it more enticing would be to enter the site and be in the space where the tale... More

Professional, riveting and extremely well led - ghosts, history, dark history; you won't walk about the core in quite the same way again. It rained the whole time and I don't believe anyone noticed after the first 3 min.. it's that engaging. If the 'strange' attracts you, don't miss this - it hits all the right notes. Well done indeed.
