Tours are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a new city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with Kingston the easy way with today's Groupon: for $15, you get admission for two to the Original Haunted Walk of Kingston from The Haunted Walk (up to a $29.38 value, including HST). Admission for children 6-12 is $7.
The Haunted Walk reveals and revels in Kingston'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 through night-shrouded streets to poltergeist-laden destinations such as the old courthouse and haunted bouncy castle. Well-versed guides clad in inky black cloaks acquaint their charges with the legends behind such spectres as the Organist's Ghost and the retinue of spirits inhabiting the haunted student ghetto house. Tours depart at 8 p.m. each evening from the lobby of the Prince George Hotel and are wheelchair accessible with assistance.
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.
