This walk is not just for those of us who like scary tales, it also gives you a lot of history of Victoria as well as local lore. The tour guide John was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He was able to answer various questions and gave an entertaining and informative "Ghostly Walk" about town.

This is a fun tour if you're looking for a smattering of local history, interesting location info (we went back to the chocolate shop later because of this tour), and light conversation about people's POV on ghosts. Tidbits are limited due to tour variation (presumably to try and entice people to attend their other walks for more info), but I... More

Went to a similar tour in Cornwall which was awesome. This one was done by the main/normal guys son who was boring and redundant.

If you are expecting to have people jumping out at you to scare you, wait for Halloween when they do Ghostly Walks Extreme. We attended a regular Ghostly Walk and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were lucky enough to have John Adams, founder of the company and local historian, leading our tour. He was entertaining and knowledgeable and made the tour... More

I went with quite a large group of people (15 or so) and found it to be fascinating, but nothing I would regret not going to. The tour itself is well organized and has lots of history and a few stories about some murders that occurred locally, back in the day. It would be great for people who are really... More

We checked out this tour in the middle of October, shoot was right around Halloween. My wife enjoys the idea of ghosts so this was a must for her. The two guides did a great job of telling us the lore of the ghosts of Victoria. This hour tour was during the rain but still enjoyable. It does take you... More

Let me start by saying I love ghost tours. Ghost stories and tales of the macabre are so interesting to me that it's usually one of the first things I google when planning a trip to a new location. These walking tours are fantastic. They had the right amount of history, intrigue, fact and spinechilling storytelling to make them both... More

This was a great tour. N hour and a half that flies by as you walk and hear the history of Victoria and the tales of the ghosts around. The tour guide is enthusiastic and weaves tales that keep you interested and wanting to hear more. This is a highly recommended tour it's cheap and great to hear it all.... More

We've done similar "ghost" tours in other cities but I really preferred this one. No reliance on costumes or people waiting behind corners to yell boo... just good old fashioned story telling. Our guide was awesome, I really wish I could remember her name!!
