Overview
More
The Halifax Ghost Walk is a 1-3/4 hour-long walking tour which takes you through the streets of Old Halifax (founded 1749) at night. Established in 1990, The Halifax Ghost Walk is the oldest Ghost Walk in North America. Our narrators have led hundreds of thousands of tourists & local residents through our historic streets at night spinning tales of ghosts, pirates, hauntings, buried treasures, & other mysterious things from our city’s rich past. It is an interesting, thought-provoking, & fun way to spend part of an evening in Halifax. Poking around our various nooks & crannies allows you to see our city in a different light. Our tours are designed for all age groups, & are typically conducted on dark, quiet nights. Halifax's downtown core is safe, pedestrian-friendly, & historic in appearance. Anyone can meet at the Old Town Clock on Citadel Hill - without a reservation- on any of our regular scheduled tours Group bookings are available all year round (10 person minimum). Start time, length of tour, & route are negotiable. This season is our 26th.

Our tour guide Glen was phenominal. He took us all over downtown halifax. The historical context of the city that he shared at each stop was a perfect compliment to the spooky stories that followed. Definitely a must for any history buff into the supernatural!

Great and informative tour. However we had done the daytime tour already, so was a bit of a repeat. Also not as spooky as it could have been. Great tour guide was 8th Generation resident.
