Montreal Ghost Walk
Oct. 2021
We really enjoyed our Ghost Walk one evening in the week before Halloween. The story teller was truly gifted at story telling. She was inclusive, animated, entertaining and in character all evening. We enjoyed the walk through Old Montreal as well. We’ve done other ghost walks across Canada (Ottawa, Kingston, Vernon and Victoria). This walk definitely stands out as one of the best.

Good night activity in old town
Sep. 2021
It was a fun, informative historical ghost tour. The content matches the facts given in the Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Archaeology and History Complex. The tour guide acted as a spirit back in time, provided us 90 mins of non-stop story telling and laughter, never even broke character once. Our tour guide spoke with adequate volume and speed, we all understood everything very well.

The tour guide was very professional, did not hint or ask for tips and she genuinely loved acting, her name was Natalie.

Nothing spectacular
Was a history lesson, no really ghost stories, and couldn't take pics. Lots of walking. Have done other ghost walks in ontario and they were amazing. Our guide was engaging but a lot of acting, which is ok but I expected a lot more.

Hi Gini! We are sorry to hear that our Ghost Walk did not meet your expectations. Our activity is a way to discover Old Montréal in a fun and entertaining way (with a mix of history and legends) and is a bit like street theatre as the activity is led by a professional actor. We invite you to contact us directly to let us know when you participated and to share more comments with us if you like. Thank you!

Fantastic ghost tour
Amazing! Best ghost tour we have been on! Natalie did an outstanding job last night. She was so entertaining and handled machines and shiny objects like a pro. Who would have known she was born in the 1700’s? 🤣 Very much recommended!
