Andy is a master storyteller and actor- no weird make-up or going overboard to make you believe in ghosts- he just lays out his stories and lets you decide. Had wonderful historic details that we hadn’t gotten on other tours. Highly recommended

Meeting up at the Clock Tower near to the Citadel started a thoroughly entertaining and informative historical ghost tour of downtown Halifax. Snippets fact and historical gossip provides an entertaining social stroll through the city. We certainly enjoyed the experience.
