We enjoyed our very first tour so much back in 2007 that we knew we had to go again on our recent visit. On this, our second family trip to Victoria, we managed to squeeze in two Ghostly Walks over three nights. The 90 minute...More

Great ghost stories as told by Ian, It was especially intriguing to visit the sites and back alleys of Victoria on a cool, drizzly, dark evening . Will be looking for another opportunity to do a guided tour of Victoria soon.

My cousin and I both work / live in gastown(above the old spaghetti factory). Came in not really knowing what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised on the fun spooky history of gastown. Loved the bit on the steam clock.
