Overview

An entertaining and informative Ghost Walk through Halifax's historic downtown area. (The ONLY Ghost Walk in Halifax which visits a cemetery!) Andy Smith, an experienced tour guide who conducts these tours, also happens to be a professional actor (ACTRA member). Andy also operates the local tour company, Tattle Tours (a separate Trip Advisor listing) which gives lively walking tours and step-on guided tours. Andy's fun Ghost Walk is typically offered Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings, starting at 7:30 p.m. (May through October) weather permitting. Duration: Two hours. $15.00 per person. Children under 13 are half price. Discounts are available to groups of ten or more people. Groups can also arrange a private tour on other mutually convenient days and times.

The Halifax Ghost Walk was a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed the stories. Our guide was absolutely wonderful, entertaining, knowledgeable, suspenseful, and we walked away knowing we had been well informed and entertained. Highly recommended.
