We enjoyed this weekends ghost walk for an hour through different parts of the city. This is our third walk and each time a different guide and different stories but always very scary and interesting. It was a bit windy so dress warmly, but a great safe Covid activity for the family. My two daughters 15 and 19 years loved it and everyone wore masks and was spaced apart. Two years ago we brought visitors from Germany and they also enjoyed. It would be nice to have it extended to 1.5 hours. Our guide, Ian (I hope i have the right name) was very good! Thank you for some safe fun during this very strange time!

Victoria is the most haunted city in the Pacific Northwest. Majority of the buildings in this lovely city have their own spooky tales to tell specially in the Downtown core. Having an establishment that is popularly known to reportedly offer its clientele hospitality from the past like the Point Ellice House Museum and Gardens or the Fairmont Empress even if they don’t appear on cue is like getting having a book recommended by Oprah or Ellen. Came in last October for my 2nd pre-Halloween Ghostly Walks Tour which was given by its legendary founder John Adams. My first tour was the Halloween of October 2019 by Brynne. The said tours didn’t overlap and was very informative and entertaining. I’d say storytelling at its finest. Even if you don’t believe in the supernatural, the said evening tours will bring out the interest of ghosts in you. The December Tour is said to be different from others scheduled during the year so it’s something surely worth trying post bubble. Ghostly Walks has become an integral contributor in Victoria’s tourism industry due to the latter’s haunting reputation. Revenue-wise Victoria is not like Savannah, Georgia where certain boutique properties like the Marshall House or 1790 have waiting lists mainly because of its history. But you can always ask the team members of Ghostly Walks like Brynne recommendations on what room or floor to stay in during your trip like in the Pendray Inn, James Bay Inn, Hotel Rialto, or the Bedford Regency to name a few to make your stay something to look forward to. It’s like asking a concierge or a host on the best or right table for you or your group in a restaurant or nightclub based on your specifications.

Our favourite part of the walk was some of the locations we visited. John had amazing storylines and a perfect voice to tell them. Although a few drunken teens tried to interject themselves in our tour, John still made my daughter and I feel safe. We will be doing more of the various tours in the future for sure!

We loved our ghost tour around the city. It was a beautiful crisp evening to set the mood right before Halloween. Our guide Chris was great at telling his ghostly stories and we were able to learn more about the city's history. My kids loved it too. We will be back to hear more.
