The jail tour was fabulous. The tour guide Liz was an excellent story teller and drew us all into the theatrics of the mysterious past court cases leading to death row and the public and possible secret hangings. The cloaked tour guide and the shadows...More

Interesting story. Nice to be outside. Not very long and not scary or creepy. Maybe because we kept being interrupted by the Hostel guests. Didn't feel the creep factor at all. The tour guide was very friendly and did her best about being continuously interrupted....More

It was a different way to see some of the local spots. However, the tour guide seemed very rehearsed. There were long pauses between spots that could have been filled with more info.

Tour guide Haymitch was awesome. He was full of interesting facts and was personable and easy to talk to. The tour was fun and was the right amount of walking around. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn a little about Ottawa.

Loved the combination of history, drama and supernatural stories. It even was interesting enough to lure our young adults away from their phones to take a short trip with their old, boring parents. Loved it!

If you have or are willing to pay for a minimum of five people, we can often add a daytime departure. If you book with less than five and we manage to sell those tickets, we would refund your "ghost guests." Please call us... More
