A lovely night for ghost stories! Caitlin, our guide, gave us just the right mix of spine chilling excitement and heartwarming nostalgia to achieve a very satisfying balance. She clearly knows her stuff. We were a diverse group and Caitlin knew how to keep everyone's attention right till the end of the tour. An added much appreciated detail was the... More

Vincent did a great job (or was it Eric?)! Braved the cold and snow and was very friendly and knowledgeable and excellent at telling stories. We felt very lucky to find an event to go to New Years Day- fortunately there was a large enough group for the tour. A lot of the tour took place outside for us- so... More

Along with my wife, I took my 11 year old son and 14 year old daughter, the guide was friendly and well informed however . We did a lot of walking between the various stories and location. We were disappointed as we expected to be spooked a lot more than we were. The stories didn't engage us much and maybe... More

I went to Ottawa in October and before going I knew I wanted to do this tour. It was a cool evening but we were dressed well for it and very much enjoyed our tour guide. She was able to clearly and in an entrancing way tell us a tale as we stopped at different places along the way to... More

Went years ago with a friend and decided to go again with the kids. We all enjoyed our night and the facial expression on the face of the guide while she was telling the stories added to the suspicion.......will probably go to the one in Kingston next year.

Louis was an excellent tour guide. Good loud voice and very knowledgable. The tour was partially outside, so dress accordingly. Lots of interesting facts about Ottawa. Some of the walk was quite dark and uneven ground. A fun one hour tour - something different to do.

Two years later we thought we would go on the Ghost and Gallows tour and we're lucky enough to get Elise as our tour guide again. Though the stories were the same it was nice to hear them again to get that reminder of details we had forgotten and know that some details from our tour were remembered.
