Ok but not the best
John_W, May 2023
This was an ok tour, wasn’t great and wan’t bad. Maybe the lack of a lot of real stories about serried killer or the such limited the narrative. The stories told were good but the presentation maybe was not that good. We have taken similar tours in Rome, Prague and Dublin which were better.

Worth the time
Donna_J, Oct 2022
Theodore...was our tour guide. He was excellent. He made the stories come to life while keeping the gruesome in, he added humour. Read his audience very well and kept it light. I was expecting added actors to pop up or some extra props though the rain may have curtailed this. Reason for the 4 rather than 5 stars...all in all very enjoyable.
A must do in Montreal
BD_M, Oct 2022
The narrator, Catherine, was excellant. She brought the ghost stories, muxed with history to life. Very enthusiastic. In full costume as well.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hello BD_M! We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. Thanks for taking the time to review us. Best,
Awful - do not recommend.
Kirk_L, Oct 2022
I have used Viator previously for other tours that were very good, but this one was awful. We were a party of 3 and we left the party after about 30 minutes. We lasted 30 hoping it would get better, but it did not. There were plenty of other people also fading away from the group. To be fair, this might be a situation where the topic could have been good, and it was the guide that made it AWFUL, but unfortunately I cannot recommend. It was a 100% waste of good money and I feel cheated.

Amazing night with the love of my life and amazing tour,amazing guide very into his work and it shows
Michle_P, Oct 2022
Montreal history dipped in a haunted theme. This was the best part of our trip, Definitely a must when visiting Montreal ! I can not say enough about our tour guide, I think her name is Carmelle or Carmen. Our tour guide brought the stories to life, she has an artistic talent to pull you in. My daughter and I throughly enjoyed the tour, these Nova Scotian gals loved it ! :)

Ricardo_A, Oct 2022
Very informative. She really brings the story to life. The tour focuses on the macabre history of the city. We loved it. Thanks again
Highly Recommend!
Sara_B, Sep 2022
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and told so many interesting stories. I love that she played the part of someone from another time. Very fun tour!
Deborah_P, Sep 2022
I am not a huge believer, but I found the Ghost Walks a great way to learn some interesting history of a place. The guide was awesome, too!
Boring tour
Lawrence_G, Sep 2022
This was terribly boring. We lasted 45 minutes and gave up. Absolute nothing about ghosts. Only about feces in the streets and people dying of cholera. What a waste of money.
Frank was energetic and...
Savannah_A, Sep 2022
Frank was energetic and funny and gave some good history of Montreal. I would not really say it was very “ghost toury” but he did show us some beautiful things. Recommend doing this early in your trip so that you come back to the area later and explore.
The ghoul was great but we wanted more
Judith_E, Sep 2022
The young man/ghoul did his best and told lots of stories but it was just so boring. We expected more of theater performance with other actors popping other places. Maybe you should adjust your advertisement.
Fun evening on Old Montreal
Harry_S, Aug 2022
Fun time with family. Good storytelling. Nice way to see the Old City in the evening. Our guide Alice was great.
Dinasia_R, Aug 2022
