Regardless of whether you believe in haunted stories or not, the tour in itself is very interesting because you get to walk along the streets of this beautiful city at night, amidst all the pretty...

We joined the tour for the Carleton Jail last minute. They were very accommodating. Our tour guide Mark was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions we could think of. We learnt a lot about ottawa's past.

I loved the haunted walk of Ottawa! I can't remember the tour guides name but she was amazing! Went on a walk and stopped at a few places where she explained different points. The jail was so interesting! Really cool experience... however I can't believe people actually stay in that jail! So creepy..

The tour guide, Justina (I hope I got her name right!), was an excellent storyteller. Even though the temperature was hovering around zero degrees, she kept us engaged while moving to different historic sites around Ottawa. In some stories her sense of humour shone through while other stories were moving. The tour started promptly and ended on time. A great... More

My husband and I went on the tour and had an excellent time. I wish we had more time to spend in death row. Would like to try the other tours! We stayed the night in the hostel after the tour, and although we didn't see anything, we had a blast! Thank you!

Recent visit with a friend we felt the tour feel short of its potential for the price. If the cost was closer to ten per person I would have felt I revived it's worth. Our guide was excellent that was not the problem. If the jail tour took us into the basement, I would have felt forfilled. Walking the streets... More

We did the Ghosts and the Gallows tour over March Break and it was great! The tour was fun and entertaining. The tour guide was friendly, helpful and did a great job story telling and taking us through the streets of Ottawa! If this type of activity interests you, I would recommend it for anyone over 10 years of age.

Amazing and fun. I've live in the region for the past 30 years and discovered this tour just now. The guide we had, Robyn, she was amazing, knowledgeable and fun. Great facts of the city and fun tour of the prison. As the site says, dress accordingly, especially in winter time, wear gloves and hats. It's​ a must do in... More
