What You Can Expect

Old Montreal Ghost Walking Tour

See the Spooky Side of Montreal

The traditional Ghost Walk begins in Old Montreal, the oldest area in the city of Montreal, with some of its remains dating all the way back to New France. 

Follow the expert storyteller guide through the town to discover Old Montreal in a completely different way than the regular tours — in search of its haunted places where a lesser-known, sometimes gruesome history is uncovered. Explore the old city streets, learning of notorious criminals of years gone by. Hear fascinating tales about the crimes and unexplained phenomena that stump even the most-experienced ghost experts.

On the Ghost Walk and Dark Encounters tour, there are witches, con artists and former criminals lurking in the dark corners of the city, maybe around the next bend. Hear about their memories, filled with legends, somber stories, criminal activity, morbid mysteries and much more.

The Ghost Hunt involves teaming up with fellow travelers to search the streets for the ghosts of famous criminals, villains and heroes. Using a provided map of the area, hunt these spirits, reliving some of the most infamous crimes in Montreal's long history. Uncover the city’s hidden secrets, from hangings to torture to slavery and more. And encounter real-life ghosts, played by professional actors who provide eerie reenactments of Montreal’s haunted history — as well as their own demise.

we took the ghost hunt tour, there were 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 tweens. We all really enjoyed the tour. It was very professional and we were all very impressed at how well the actors played their parts. The only negitive point of our whole tour 90min. was an inappropriate comment to one of our tweens at the end of the tour, by the last actor, It frightened one of the tweens. But apart from that I would highly recommend it to these age groups, not for younger children as it is a little scarry. We scored it a 9 out of 10.
