Every city block has a tale to tell, yet even the most skilled prosecutors can’t get buildings to talk. Be there when they spill the beans with this Groupon.
$15 for The Original Haunted Walk of Kingston for Two (Up to $31.08 Value)
A cloaked figure leads groups through Kingston’s quiet streets by lantern light, pausing to explore the haunted student ghetto house, listen for the Organist's ghost, and recount the infamous hangings at the old courthouse. Fit for guests aged 6 and older, the wheelchair-accessible, 90-minute tour departs daily at 8 p.m. from the lobby of the Prince George Hotel.
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. Haunted Walk doesn't limit it tours to just the dark side – they also offer Steampunk time-travel tours, which transport participants on a wacky adventure through the hidden secrets of Ottawa's past. Private tours are also available.
