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.

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.

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.
