On the 90-minute walking tours, a cloaked figure leads groups through the city's quiet streets by lantern light, pausing to recount tales of hauntings. Toronto’s Haunted Walk focuses on dark stories of public hangings, ghostly encounters at Mackenzie House, and more. The Ghosts and Spirits tour explores the city’s early days along the cobblestone streets of the Distillery District and St. Lawrence Market. The tours are fit for guests aged 6 and older.
The Haunted Walk departs from the Hockey Hall of Fame and the Ghosts and Spirits Tour from Segway of Ontario in The Distillery Historic District. Tour schedules change seasonally, but the Ghosts and Spirits Tour runs Tuesday–Saturday at 8 p.m. and the Haunted Walk runs at 9 p.m. daily.
Draped in a black cloak, a figure holds a lantern to light the way along a weathered stone wall. As the tour group follows, the cloaked leader recounts a story, perhaps a tale about Canada’s last working gallows, or perhaps about the riots that once overtook the streets. Though Haunted Walk’s guides are well known for their theatrical flair, the tales they tell are not so well known. As they lead walking tours of Kingston, Ottawa, and Toronto, the guides unveil fascinating yet rarely told tales of each city’s dark side. Narrations may include ghost stories backed by eye-witness accounts, or the underpinnings of a nefarious political plot, such as a plan to draw moustaches on every image of the queen. Private tours are also available.
