Ghosts, graveyards, hangings and haunts. From the old military town of York to the metropolitan city of today, discover Toronto's darker history. Stroll along the haunted cobblestone streets of the historic Distillery District by lantern light. Visit the old hanging grounds near the St. Lawrence Market, where many a rebel, and perhaps a few innocent souls, met with a gruesome end.

Enjoyed our haunted walk. It was just long enough, informative and at the end there are plenty of places to grab a drink and eat with friends. Easy to book and find, started on time. Friendly guide.

I didn't find this tour particularly creepy. However, our host was great and it was a great way to learn more about the people who lived in Toronto so many years ago.

We went on this tour and it lasted about 90 min. It was very interesting and our tour guide Sebastian had many other random historical facts to give us as we were walking from one location to the next.

I'm Not a ghost person but found the tour entertaining. The tour guide was very good and had lots of "scary" stories.

A group of 4 of us went and were in a group of 14 people. The stories were repetitive, about people in old fashioned clothing being sighted throughout the district. It was cold and windy and the only good part was when we went into...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
