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.

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.

I had a great time on the Old Montreal Ghost Walking Tour.

We were wandering around different areas for almost two hours as as it was a Saturday night our guide was getting looks from the people partaking in a few beverages.

The stories had a historical base and were embellished to make them more interesting for current times.

We were outside so we were not obligated to wear face masks as long as you were 2m apart from people outside your family and friends.

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!

Natasha is an amazing storyteller! She even managed to give us a jump scare right in the beginning which was fun. My sister and I both enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it. You also get to learn about some of the history of Old Montreal and the founding of the city which was also very interesting. Thank you for the fun tour!

So fun! The ghost guide kept us laughing and told awesome spooky stories. She was dressed in costume and makeup and had a wonderful theatrical flair. Great for pre-teens and teens. Loved seeing Old Montreal at night.

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!

My favorite ghost tour yet and I've seen a lot of'em all over the World. My guide was Ronnie and it was on Dec 30th. The coldest Dec, 30th in Montreal's recorded history. Yet the tour was excellent. Wasn't rushed at all, every question was answered and then some. My tour was less theatrical as I was the only one but a large group with costumes and lanterns the added atmosphere will be all the awesome. I have yet to see the tour which includes Griffentown and that one look great for my next visit. I can't vouch for other guides but if you're fortunate to have Ronnie it will be undoubtedly be great.

We were looking for something fun to do with our teen son and this was a pleasant surprise. We’ve done many ghost tours all over the country and the storyteller here made this one stand out in our top 3! Franklin, our tour guide, was outstanding and kept our attention. He appeared to be a well-trained actor and certainly deserves a raise! He maintained character throughout the tour and remembered many participants’ names. It is a good few miles walk — can move quickly — so be sure you’re up for that. He does bring you to areas where you can sit while he chats with you. Also loved how he didn’t ask for a tip at the end — but we all gave one anyway because he was that good! Nice way to tour Old Montreal and learn its history.

Not the best ghost tour I ever experienced, but maybe not the worst. It was an amusing way to kill 1.5 hours, but the stories I did not dind that interesting. Nor were theu delivered very well.
