      Great fun
      Great stories that were well told by our guide Monts. This tour was just over an hour and took us to a variety of different sites around the city centre.

      Learn the dark past about Toronto after dark!
      The meeting point for this one takes you right to the guides, we had Lauren who was an excellent story teller throughout and her character on the tour made the experience extra special. She took us to lots of interesting points throughout the city all within walking distance and told us of the chilling stories which happened at each spot we visited, she also showed us historical points on the way and explained to us the history of Toronto. The tour itself was a good length in both journey and time and you learnt a lot of history along the way including all the stories and hauntings which have been known throughout the city. From this I have learnt not to goto the toilet alone in Toronto and why girls go in pairs :D Make sure you take a jacket and wear comfy shoes for this one.

      Inexplicable happenings and spooky fun at Black Creek Pioneer Village
      I’ve done most of the haunted walks in Toronto, Kingston and Ottawa and enjoyed them all. A great way to learn some history, get some exercise and hear spooky stories. Last night was atmospheric for a walk around the old buildings at Black Creek Pioneer Village, with a bright beautiful moon and chill in the air. I haven’t experienced anything on any of the prior walks, but odd things started in the very first building we entered when a chain that blocks off entrance to a bedroom started swinging back and forth on its own while the guide was talking. Nobody was near it at the time. Then in the “Minister’s house” I was the last person to enter and had to close the door. I paused to look around while doing so. There were only 4 of us in the group plus our guide and everyone had already moved on into the house to the right when I heard a loud bang in the room to my left, which is blocked off. It sounded like someone banging their fist on a desk or table and I thought someone had gone around to prank me. However, no one had, and there wasn’t another way into the room. I tried to re-create the sound, looked for a fallen item etc but couldn’t figure out what made the noise. The third odd thing is a photo I took in front of a house. All the photos I took turned out fine, except for one that came out a bit blurry despite taking in in the same way as the others. This photo shows a blue streak of light and what looks like a horse galloping out of the front door. All in all, an entertaining evening!

      I loved the Haunted Walk with Clarice!
      Clarice was my tour guide and she was great. I was the only one on the Haunted Walk tour (seeing as it is mid-November I wasn’t too surprised) but it was really such a great experience. It was immersive, interesting, and I learned a lot. The stories really made you think about the histories of the buildings. As a paranormal enthusiast, I had such a great time and I can’t thank Clarice enough. I will definitely be going back!

      Nothing scary about this walk.
      There is nothing scary about this haunted walk. Waste of money honestly. Y’all shouldn’t even charge this much for just a storytelling.

      Amazing!
      My boyfriend and I came here for the 6:15 PM Ghost tour! Our tour guide, Mia, was incredible and very nice. She would always state facts in response to the comments that some of the guests made. For instance, in the Burwick house, as you reach the top floor, it gets very hot. Some guests were curious about this, and Mia explained that pioneers built their homes in a way to insulate heat. I appreciated Mia “debunking” certain feelings/situations as to show that not everything experienced should be passed off as paranormal. However, when we were in the Manse house, Mia’s lantern began to randomly flicker, dimming and then shining bright. She said that it must be dying batteries, but her lantern was fine everywhere else outside the Manse house. I kept thinking about that throughout the tour. Because I have never myself experienced any sort of ghostly activity, I tried to keep an open-mind and anticipated that if I were to witness anything, that I would attempt to debunk it. While touring the church, Mia explained that people have witnessed orbs floating in the cemetery. I was not nervous, or panicking when she said this as I know that can affect how people begin to perceive/see things thereafter. I just absorbed her information and we moved along. When we toured the cemetery from the front gate, I was shining my flashlight that was given to us for the tour, towards the tombstones, and I had randomly seen a random ball of whitish/blue light float down from a tree near the front of the cemetery all the way down to the front gate. Now, I tried to keep mouth shut about it because I didn’t want people to think that I was reacting just to “react.” But, I could not stay quiet, because the natural human response to seeing something unexplainable is to say “What the f-!” Lol. I promise you guys that this was not dust, a bug, a leaf, or car lights. I also thought about it possibly being someone else’s flashlight, but I debunked this. A flashlight being shone out does not form a perfectly round circle mid-air, unless it has something to reflect off of in the background. In which this case, the cemetery was open field. Everyone’s flashlights just casted a wave of light, not small round circles. This orb was perfectly spherical and moving on its own accord, despite the wind (the wind would affect the direction that a bug or leaf would move, and the car lights would have had nothing to reflect off of, this was floating in mid air) as it had randomly appeared from the tree and had floated down to the front gate and disappeared. When I had seen it, I froze and said “Oh my God! I just seen something float down!” Mia turned to me and asked what was it, and I explained as above. She assured me that she believed me and encouraged me to continue to keep an open mind. I continued shining my light, but it did not reappear and I can affirm that I had definitely seen a spirit orb. I did not feel afraid or nervous, it just felt surreal and I took that experience home with me. Thank you Mia for such an amazing tour! 5 stars! 😊

      Haunted and Delighted
      I have been living in Toronto for over a decade and it was a very joyful and pleasant experience to learn about the history of places and buildings that I have passed by so many times. Sare, our tour guide's theatrical story telling made the tour so much more interesting.

      Jack is a wonderful storyteller and answered all of our questions. We had a great time! We even experienced noises and the chain swinging upstairs in the Stong home.

      Creepy but fun!!!
      We had a great time. Clarice was a great guide and made sure to make it extra scary by inviting ghosts to join us. We even seemed to have captured one on camera. This one was by the cemetery. And no one was there in front of the camera.

      A spooky and enjoyable tour!
      My spouse and I have done 3 haunted walks over the years and this one was by far the best. Our guide Kate was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a great storyteller. Since this tour involves going into the buildings and exploring, the probability that you will experience something unexplained goes up by orders of magnitude. Everyone in our group heard a loud bang when there was absolutely no one upstairs, which was something that even the most die hard skeptic would be hard pressed to explain. I would definitely revisit this tour again next year, and would like to make it an annual tradition. Two thumbs up!

    It was a great and knowledgeable walk through the distillery. It was my partner’s first time in the distillery district and it was great to be able to get the back history and all the ghost stories to go with it. It definitely gave me a greater appreciation of the tour.

    Cute tour with fun stories. Our guide Zack was personable and friendly. He gave great directions for us to get back too!! We did the 8pm tour, the area really shuts down between 7-8 so if you are hanging for the 9pm your waiting options will be very limited. As tourists we really weren’t aware of that. But it also means you aren’t fighting w crowds to go along your route or hear your guide.

    Good informative tour, friendly guide, lots of history and insights into 19th century Toronto society. It was engaging and fun, but not spooky. The distillery is a wonderful site with lots of benign ghost anecdotes but few murders or truly morbid stories.

    Enjoyed our tour with Allison. The tour guides are well informed and tell great stories. Just enough ghostly content to make it a haunted tour but not scary. Great way to spend the evening and learn about the history of this area. Highly recommend.

    Hey! Thanks for joining us on tour! We're glad to hear you had a good time, and we'll be sure to pass along all your kind words to Allison. Teaching the darker, spookier side of history is what we do best, and we hope we'll get to see you on another tour soon! :)

    The tour/stories wasn't as scary as I'd hoped. Lots of historical facts but I came for the spooks!
    Plus there were other group members that kept talking and laughing throughout the tour guide's presentation.
