My wife and I spent the day downtown (for our fifth anniversary) and decided to end the night with this ghost walk. She is OBSESSED with ghosts/paranormal/haunted experiences. And she was not disappointed. Andy was theatrical yet informative, without going over the top. As two...More

It was Andy who made this a true experience. Without an engaging guide, a tour is just a walk, but Andy is a true storyteller and clearly enjoys his job and is great entertainer whose enthusiasm didn't lag, but only built throughout our tour. The...More

The guide was late. We did receive an apology letter. He also walked really fast. I was okay with it, but some of the group were not. We lost almost half the group once we left the church area. I am not sure if it...More

I'm very sorry for the poor experience. The things lacking you mentioned are not normal for this tour, nor our Ghost Guides. I guarantee this will be looked into. Thank you for the detailed and insightful review.

The tour was fun, my two teens were thrilled and not complaining about walking (!). The guide was a gem, some acting, some mystery and a lot of interesting history!

Would not recommend to anyone honestly. The history was nice, but the stories were boring. Best part about this was that it gave us an idea of where to hang out after. Better off hanging out doing something else.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the tour Andy. Am happy you thought the featured history was nice. I agree. That neighbourhood has some of the best in all of Toronto!

William was our tour guide, and from the first moment he transported us into another time. He enunciated very clearly, and seemed to affect an old-timey accent, which made the stories extra enchanting. Also, his costume with the top hat, cape, and lantern were top...More

Well caught Kerri! We firmly believe history is what makes the ghosts (and the stories). Thanks for the detailed review and so happy you enjoyed William's tour.

There was already a Ghost Tour taking place (another company). That female guide looked and sounded boring!! I was expecting to be disappointed, but our guide William approached the meeting spot fully dressed for the part, which turned up the excitement! William didn’t disappoint; he...More

Andy our tour guide was THE BEST. The actual tour was ok but he made it interesting. Unfortunately it was too noisy at times to hear Andy’s stories. Definitely a must have especially if you don’t know Toronto

Thanks for taking the time to review Daniel, and dealing with a very noisy city on Friday.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
