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!!

Really good tour! We booked it online and enjoyed all the ghost stories, the tour around the city and the little history of the town, we would like to spend more time in Victoria though, it looks like a beautiful place!!!

If you are into scary ghost stories, this tour is for you! Not for those susceptible to nightmares, depression or impressionable children. Tour guide was excellent and kept our attention throughout. Lots of history in this city.

This was our 2nd time taking the Ghostly Walks tour and it was just as fun the 2nd time. If you love listening to good ghost stories and learning a little history a long the way, then this is an hour well spent! It is also a fun way to see parts of Victoria you may not have otherwise wandered... More

Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 teenagers enjoyed a fun evening with John Adams. It was evident quickly that John is good at leading groups, and keeping peoples attention. We walked for 90 minutes, and made frequent stops learning about history of the area. It is important to keep an open mind and just the walk.
