Ghost Walks
About
City of Hamilton (multiple tours) A focus on masterful storytelling and a reasonable price. We've put special attention into respecting the ghost story. This dedication to traditional styles mixes well with the natural (and only interesting) odd history. It's been our specialty since 2003!

My friends and I went to the Hermitage ghost walk and it was amazing. We went the night before the full moon. Very informative and fun.

I’ve lived in Hamilton for 22 years and I was stunned to find out all the information that Daniel told us on the bus ride last night. It’s amazing. And then we went to Dundurn Castle where we were allowed to wander around ourselves, which I found extremely nice. I’ve been there several times for guided tours, and always wanted to wander around myself. All in all, it was an amazing night.

This is the third Ghost Walk tour I’ve gone over the years and they have all been amazing! The interpreters are great story tellers, they are well organized and entertaining. This year I took my mom on the Dundurn castle tour. We had such a great night. Last year I took a friend on the haunted trolley tour and it was fantastic too. Highly recommend if you like ghost stories or Hamilton history!

Great tour! Educational. Entertaining. Well organized. Great value.
Ghost Walk includes an educational and entertaining bus tour of the allegedly haunted locations within the city city of Hamilton, after hours access to a unique and historic haunted mansion, and a brief outdoor ghost walk of the grounds.

Highly recommend. Five stars.

My family and I had the pleasure of going on the Dundurn Castle and Ghost Bus Tour this past Saturday. Last year, my teen and I did the Hermitage Ruins led by Ghost Guide Daniel. I highly recommend that one! My husband was a bit sceptical about an hour on the bus before the tour of Dundurn Castle. I assured him, just wait until you hear Daniel speaking on the tour and you will be amazed. Daniel is an expert storyteller, has an amazing sense of humour, and is very knowledgeable about the city of Hamilton and its history. The hour went by in a snap. Every time that I looked over at my husband, he was either laughing or immensely intrigued by the story that Daniel was weaving. The tour of Dundurn Castle was self guided, and there are many staff on site to answer your questions. At the end of the evening, we gathered in the courtyard of the castle to hear some ghost stories about Dundurn Castle from Ghost Guide Erin. It was a great way to end an awesome evening. I can't say enough good things about the Ghost Walks of Hamilton. It's on my bucket list to do the rest of them next year. They are so highly entertaining (thanks Daniel!), well organized, reasonably priced, and the email communication if you have any questions, have to cancel or reschedule is so prompt. You can even be put on a waitlist for the tours that are sold out. And they do sell out quickly so get tickets way in advance. Thanks Daniel and Ghost Walks of Hamilton for a very spooky evening.

A great way to spend a pre-Halloween evening! The bus tour had lots of interesting sites en route and Daniel is a very good storyteller who knows Hamilton's history quite well. The time at Dundurn Castle was a highlight. Being able to spend rime looking around without being g herded by a guide was great, especially when there were enough knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions!

Geoff was a great story teller. The event was well-organized. I would definitely do this again. Communication before the event was informative, clear and concise. I felt very safe.
