Children under 13 are half price. Discounts are available to groups of ten or more people. Groups can also arrange a private tour on other mutually convenient days and times.

My husband and I were looking for an informative, slightly unusual tour of Halifax and the Ghost Walk definitely meets the criteria. Andy entertained us with stories of ghosts, spirits and Halifax history for approx 2 hours (7:30-9:15ish pm) while we walked around downtown Halifax....More

This was a very enjoyable informative walking tour. Andy combines history, paranormal events and acting for a fun and informative night. The walk was 2 hours and the time went by very quickly... if you can fit this in I highly recommend it.

A great way to spend a couple of hours in the evening learning about local history with a mix of ghost story thrown in.

Andy was great. It was entertaining and interesting. He was funny and sarcastic and great with the kids. It had everything from War of 1813, Titanic, Halifax Explosion to dead politicians and prostitutes!! What more could you ask for. Would go again.
