I was at the Incident at the Bunker this afternoon. It was great. I got scared in a couple of places, but I'm a chicken. I've done several Haunted Walks and this one was my favourite by far!

Fantastic Guide, well-paced, historical, and spooky! Insight into the murder of Canadian Politician D’Arcy McGee and the conviction and execution of his alleged killer at the jail.

We did the zombies at the bunker and, overall, had a lot of fun. The concept was cool and the guides were very engaging. However, if your someone who is distracted by inconsistencies and anachronisms, this is probably not the best tour.

If you have or are willing to pay for a minimum of five people, we can often add a daytime departure. If you book with less than five and we manage to sell those tickets, we would refund your "ghost guests." Please call us... More
