Overview

The Halifax Ghost Walk is a 1-3/4 hour-long walking tour which takes you through the streets of Old Halifax (founded 1749) at night. Established in 1990, The Halifax Ghost Walk is the oldest Ghost Walk in North America. Our narrators have led hundreds of thousands of tourists & local residents through our historic streets at night spinning tales of ghosts, pirates, hauntings, buried treasures, & other mysterious things from our city’s rich past. It is an interesting, thought-provoking, & fun way to spend part of an evening in Halifax. Poking around our various nooks & crannies allows you to see our city in a different light. Our tours are designed for all age groups, & are typically conducted on dark, quiet nights. Halifax's downtown core is safe, pedestrian-friendly, & historic in appearance. Anyone can meet at the Old Town Clock on Citadel Hill - without a reservation- on any of our regular scheduled tours Group bookings are available all year round (10 person minimum). Start time, length of tour, & route are negotiable. This season is our 26th.

Super interesting and historic, well worth the $15. Our guide Dusty was captivating, and told tales with a great energy and enthusiasm, and gave the city and it's history a unique (and occasionally chilling) context. If you're just getting to know Halifax, it also starts...More

Dusty was very... theatrical, bordering on hokey. His stories took 10 minutes longer to tell than the content actually necessitated, heavy in repetition. Definitely not worth the money ($20/person). This was also our 5th visit to Halifax as my sister studies there so we do...More
