The Haunted Walk reveals and revels in Ottawa's salacious past with crepuscular walking tours conducted by illustrious guides. The Original Haunted Walk soaks history-parched minds in the macabre, leading excursionists on a 90-minute lantern-lit tour to poltergeist-laden destinations such as the Bytown Museum and Fairmont Chateau Laurier.
The Naughty Ottawa Pub Walk, meanwhile, regales tour-goers 19 years old and up with two hours of lurid tales that delve into Ottawa's risqué history, from political scandals to riots about public bathrooms' lack of untextured toilet paper. Along the way, tour gurus guide patrons into local pubs, where they can sip brews and bask in the glow of history like a moth around a radioactive time capsule.
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. Haunted Walk doesn't limit it tours to just the dark side – they also offer a unique Time Trail Travel Adventure tour. Steampunk-inspired tour guides lead participants on a wacky adventure through time and space by visiting the hidden secrets of the city's past, allowing them to witness reenacted historical scenes and even duel rival time travelers. Private tours are also available.
