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.

This tour was completely worth it. Our guide, Mr E, had a terrific stage presence. It was so much fun to see how well he wove whatever was really happening around us. A truck rumbling by noisily when he was recreating a prayer that saved the first settlers, so he dramatically yelled at them that they were getting in the way of his being saved. It was very easy to see that Mr E was really invested in all the stories and legends he was telling us.He'd obviously done a TON of research about the stories on his own, going around and talked to various owners and neighbors of the places that are haunted. He actually got to go into the cells of the Last Days under the court house once, by approaching a security guard when he arrived at an event unexpectedly early. This gave an extra depth to his descriptions, as they were so vivid coming from him He was so much fun to listen to.
Mr E was very good at working with the younger people on the tour, giving them a chance to engage on their own level, as well as working and adapting various facts for people who were from either elsewhere in Canada, or the States such as myself. We were all given the feeling that we were being included on an equal level.
At the very end of the tour, after answering any questions we had, Mr E even helped us with directions back to the nearest metro.
I would highly recommend this tour to other people, visitors and locals alike, and my hostess has said that she would like to take more people who she sees to see the tour as well.

Great actors that have you captivated with their stories from the beginning. Rain or shine this tour takes place. We had a really rainy night, which just added to fun. Got to see parts of the city which we had never seen before.
