my husband and I just finished our ghost walk with the black widow, she was amazing. we've never done one of these before but the history and stories on the walk were great! She's a wonderful storyteller!
I did the Hermitage ghost walk the other night. Par excellence. Having done the Ghost and Vampire walks in New Orleans I honestly did not expect much, but was I wrong!! This was excellent.
I had the distinct pleasure of joining your Dundas ghost Tour with Erin as our guide. Erin was nothing short of remarkable. The plethora of facts and ‘ghost stories’ kept on coming, even down to the minutiae of details: there were 3 toasters used to try and commit arson in the Collins Hotel in the 1990’s. Or is it 4, brother Jim? Erin was very animated and enthusiastic when telling us ghost stories and gruesome facts, which made many of us feeling jittery and spooked! In addition, she can really handle a crowd as there were many interruptions. Erin managed this with aplomb to keep the group engaged. She even kept us intrigued, by not telling us which home was haunted. I can not tell you how much this tour impacted us. I might even look for a realtor in the area! A big THANK YOU to Erin, for making the whole experience an incredible one, to remember.
We took our dad to the Hermitage ghost walk for Fathers Day! He spent a lot of time there as a teen and it was awesome to have Ghost Guide Daniel tell us spooky stories as well as the history of the area. We had a blast! Would definitely go on another tour.
Amazing experience! Our tour guide Daniel was great! Well organized, good email communication and reminders. We did the Hermitage and loved the lore and story telling. Looking forward to attending another one. Highly recommend.
I did the Hermitage ghost walk and I loved it. It was my first time with Ghost Walks of Hamilton. The story telling was excellent and done with so much enthusiasm! It was a great experience that I will do again, probably during the fall if available. If you're into history, old timey vibes and a little bit of spooky, this is it.
I'm so glad I finally had the chance to participate in a Ghost Walk! It was nice to learn about local history and hear some eerie tales. Our guide, Daniel, was a great storyteller. Would definitely book with them again!
Great story telling and some interesting stories and facts about Dundas!
Had a great time at the Hermitage ruins.
I took my partner on a ghost walk for an early birthday present, and we had a fabulous time. Daniel did a great job sharing both ghost stories and interesting tidbits about Dundas, and was all around a really good speaker and storyteller. I highly recommend if you're looking for a fun evening out.
This is our 4 ghost walk with Ghost Walks! We enjoyed each one of them and looking forward many more ghost walks in the future!!!! Each leader we had are truly amazing. They take there time explaining and walking through the process. They are friendly and so kind. Thank you each one them we hade with the experience and looking forward more in the future!!!!!!!
I've been on the downtown walk (several times), the Dark History walk, the Ghost Hunt (several times), and the Hermitage (again several times) and have loved it each and every time. Can't wait to do other ones. I've just been on the Dundurn bus tour/ghost walk and I loved it. I honestly can not wait to do it again! Just did the new Dundas ghost walk on Saturday May 4th, and I loved it.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Dundas walk. Wonderful storyteller and has clearly put a lot of effort into putting these walks together. Highly recommended
I took my son on Daniel's first tour of Dundas and let me say we won't look at the little town the same. My 10 year old hung on his every word. Thank you so much Daniel for such a fun, educational evening. As mentioned, you are a true master of you craft!
Very entertaining .......
Great fun, lots of history, and excellent storytelling. Thanks!

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.

Is this a Jump-Scare or Traditional Tour?

It’s a normal Traditional Ghost Tour on the City Bus Tour & in the House. Featuring trained storytellers speaking of legends, interesting history and ghost stories. This is not a scare “haunted house”.

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.
