FAQ & Interesting Info

Why we are different from other Tours?

A focus on masterful storytelling at a reasonable price (with no hidden fees!).  First, we’ve put special attention into respecting the ghost story.  Also, with a dedication to traditional styles mixed with natural (and interesting) odd history.  This is our specialty since 2003.

Reviews | What people are saying…

Why are dates and times missing when booking?

When a date or time slot is missing in the Booking… If a missing time, that tour time is sold out.  A missing date, means the entire night is sold out.

Are you connected to HH for Hamilton Tours?

No. There was a connection a few years back for promotion only. Ended in 2012. All Hamilton based, and other tours, originated from our same love of ghost stories starting with Downtown Hamilton in 2003.

Ghost Story from Bus – Auchmar Mansion

Experiencing the Ghosts after Half-A-Century

Strange Days at Blake Holsey High was a TV show on YTV.  Ran from 2002 to 2006.  Why am I talking about this here? 

The Gothic “Magic School” they filmed in… was Hamilton Mountain’s Auchmar Mansion

Auchmar Mansion - Hamilton Mountain

This was the first time non-Nuns had entered the building in almost half-a-century!  Meaning, the ghosts of the old Buchanan mansion can finally be noticed.

Such as that one night the Villain (actor Lawrence Bayne) slept over. 

He had an early shoot the next morning.  Heading into the back area behind the original house.  They had converted it into a line of dressing rooms for the actors.

Closing the door, lying down on the couch and closing his eyes. 

A click!  Opening his eyes.  Half asleep he saw movement at the door.  The knob turning.

He jumped up as the door swung open.  Running into the hall ready to confront whoever was playing this horrible joke.

The hallway empty and quiet.

This and the adorably creepy resident ghost of the house.

Should I book in advance?

Yes.  We are limited on space for tours.  Advance bookings allows us to guarantee spots for you, and book in additional guides if needed.
