We survived three tours in Hamilton: The Hermitage Ruins & Dark Trolley with Daniel, and tonight's Downtown Hamilton with Graeme. 🤩😎What dreadful experiences! 😱 Everything was absolutely frightful and ghastly with each tour more unspeakable and repulsive than the previous one! 👻We were horrified by the gruesome tales and grisly details of Hamilton's deepest, darkest, not-so-secret past. 🥺The ghoulish recount of terrifying, despicable and nefarious dealings of this city's colourful inhabitants is not for the faint of heart. Take heed, you have been warned! 😱😁

I went on the Hamilton’s Dark History Tour this week and it was fabulous! What a great way to spend an evening touring the city and listening to captivating tales. Daniel was a fantastic guide and I learned many new facts about parts of my city I visit every day. I’m definitely booking another one in the future!

The walk was excellent! Our guide told the stories well and the stories had a good balance of historic references. It was an easy walk and the 90 minutes wasn’t too long. The town is beautiful as well! After the tour, we drove by and took a picture of the abandoned house near the graveyard - attached.

I've done the Hermitage, Downtown Hamilton, NOTL and Dark Trolley tours with Ghost Walks.The history is well researched. Daniel and the other guides I've had were all captivating yet not over the top. Compared to other companies' tours, value for your $ is there. Scary wise, the Hermitage is probably the eeriest. All are interesting. Take note that the Dark Trolley tour was mostly regarding the history and less the supernatural. Still interesting the scenery was great.Will try to do the other tours, and I would even repeat the ones I've done already.

Although the experience was ok, it wasn't great. The group was just too large. I counted 32 people at the start and at our first stop, 2 people were sitting at the bench on the side walk and decided to join, so you can imagine. Jackson was our guide, he did a fairly good job but my expectations on the stories were much higher seeing as this is supposed to be the most haunted town in Canada. We walked very fast, I felt bad for the older adults in the group, we were completely done in an hour 10 min so did not do the 90 minutes, and it ended awkwardly ending the ghost walk tour in a parking lot behind the office. At min, walk us back and tell us a wrap up story. I don't know, it is not our first ghost walk but it is my first true disappointment for a tour. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone and I feel bad to say that but it wasn't money well spent. One more recommendation as I have seen on other walks, give the walkers small flashlights that they return at the end. Was fine for me but certainly for the kids and older adults, it was dark.

We were the only two on our walk but that did not matter. Jackson our guide was awesome. He keep our attention and answered questions we had. He said that we were his first tour on his own. If he did not tell us that we would never had guessed it. I highly recommend doing one of these walks. The night we went out it was raining but when we stopped at the lake the fog made it that much more creepy.

This is our second ghost walk in Ontario. The first was at Fort George in Niagara on the Lake. Both times the hosts were excellent at creating excitement, curiosity and emotional effect. The stories told have enticed us to want to explore more cities in the Province we were born into. Hamilton has never been a destination we would put on our travel itinerary but after learning about the history of some of the buildings and characters that once lived there, we are intrigued to go back during daylight hours ; ) Thank you Daniel for a fun, informative and spooky night!The Hennesseys

Last minute my husband and I decided to take a “Haunted Expedition” to Niagara-on-the-Lake and I was so excited to add a Ghost Walk Tour to our trip. This was the first time I’ve been able to take one of these tours and I foresee many more in the future. In the 90 minutes our guide lead us around the most historic and beautiful parts of the town, engaging and interacting with the group and not once did I think “is it almost over??” In fact, I wish there could’ve been more. It was great to spend an evening with other believers hearing the stories and history of the town. In our tour, a woman was taking photos of a house in town from behind my husband and I. She was using an iPhone which has the ability to take “Live Photos” which is simply a 3 second video that allows you to choose the perfect picture. Anyways. During one of these Live Photo’s, there was a glitch in her camera that made it zoom in on the back of my husbands head and very quickly, his face appears on the back of his head. Super creepy, I have a sensitivity and at this location I felt very sick to my stomach, could this have been why? Thank you so much Ghost Walks! Until next time!
My daughter and i had a fantastic time at Michelin Priory. The story's and tour of the prioy was great. Highly recommend to both young and old for a night out with a difference.

If you would like to learn about the dark history of Niagara-on-the-Lake then this tour is the best way to do it. The guides are entertaining and very informative. Our guide Sir Bob did an extraordinary job telling the group about all the history. It’s a great way to learn about the most haunted city in Canada. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone who is interested or even curious to learn about the Hauntings that exist in this beautiful, and very historical city.

This was an amazing, informative guide! Both my sister and I really enjoyed the tour. We are Toronto girls born and bred but didn't have a clue about our city in this light. Daniel was enthusiastic, theatrical (but in a good way), informative and kind. He was also very helpful to me when I needed to reschedule my date from September to October. He was quite accommodating to that personal matter. I look forward to taking more tours in the near future when the weather gets warmer! thanks again, Daniel!

Bonus points for spot on Groundskeeper Willie impression. The flow of this walk is really well done, with the sky getting darker as we visited increasingly creepier locations.The historical information on the city was worth it alone, the ghost stories made it exciting.

Just went on the ghost walk, led by Lady Stella Marie, and it was a fantastic tour of the most haunted town in Canada. Creepy side note - got back to our hotel in Niagara Falls, and got on the elevator. The doors closed all the way, then they popped back open as though someone outside had pushed a button, and a woman walked up, but apparently, she hadn't hit the button... And she happened to be going to the same floor as us. She thought we'd been waiting for someone. Hopefully our hotel doesn't end up with a new resident...

Absolutely fantastic!!! Never have I been disappointed in the seven years I have been on the tours. From the customs House to the Scottish Rite and the Niagara-on-the-Lake tours every tours has been above all expectations. Thank you for the wonderful memories.

I had an amazing time on the ghost walk! I went with my family to do something fun for Halloween. The group size was a larger medium size; but we were able to hear all of the chilling stories from our tour guide, Alex. This tour is great for people visiting Hamilton and for those who have grown up here, like myself. It was really cool to go on a little tour of the downtown core and to know more about Hamilton history. Next time, I want to do the Hermitage tour - if it's not sold out! Thanks, Hamilton Ghost Walks!

A fun and historical tour of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend the Niagara walk.
Had a great time. Loved the errie feel of the forest and the ruins. Best tour guide to date with Andrew. More ghost stories I hope some more people get some experiences. I had a feeling at the beginning of something touching my hair and neck. Family loved it. 14 year old step son was enthralled!

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour at the Scottish Rite! Our guide was very good at presenting the history and stories related to this site and the surrounding area. The building itself is just stunning to look at with its intricate architecture and woodwork. I would definitely recommend this tour to others and look forward to attending some of the other tours available.

I reserved tickets to this as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th birthday - and we both loved it! My boyfriend said it was his favorite thing we did for his birthday, and I agree! Stella Marie was our tour guide, and she was amazing! Very engaging, professional, and a terrific storyteller with funny quips and sure knew how to set the spooky mood! A couple of rude passersby yelled mean things at the group as they passed us during the night, but Stella Marie kept her cool, stayed in character, and shrugged it off. It was awesome learning about the history of the area along with the resident ghosts. If you're looking for something super intense with jumpscares and grisly imagery, then this probably will seem very tame to you. But if you want a fun spooky activity with your significant other, friends, or family that gets you in the mood to learn more about hauntings and the history of Niagara on the Lake (or anywhere!), you definitely don't want to miss doing this tour! Truly a hidden gem of any Niagara trip experience.
This was my first ghost walk and it was spook filled and full of history . I cannot wait to go on another one I would definitely recommend

Very knowable, very interesting and friendly. Asked question of the group, keep the attention of the group all the time. reviewed pass experienced of different people who were involved with the hermitage ruins. I would tell other people about the my experience. The time of the tour was a good length so as not to tired any one out. Thank you for a great time .

Amazing a great time and our guide Sir Lawrence was wonderful. Great experience.
Had a great time on the walk last night lead by Sir Lawrence . It was cold out but I didn't even notice as it was so interesting to learn the history of the NOTL and the ghosts that are within. Funny how you can live close by (Niagara Falls) and not know about all the ghost sightings of the area.

My husband and I went on the Hamiltons Dark History tour last night and we really enjoyed it! The stories were captivating and very well told. I liked how our guide speckled the evening with humor, and how he would tie in little sneak peeks of some other tours that I want to go on now more than ever! Great job! I am definitely recommending this tour to friends

Incredibly disappointing experience on Halloween night at the Scottish Rite. This "ghost walk" was advertised as being 1.5 hours, but only lasted for 52 minutes. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate was supposed to be provided as part of the charge for the tour, but none was there to be had. There was pretty much ZERO ghost content on the tour, but rather a 52 minute admonishment from our guide on the reasoning on why inequality to women is ok. Cellphones are bad. etc. Confusion among all of the attendees grew throughout the tour while the guide trailed off and went off onto tangent after tangent that went nowhere, until 52 minutes in he just said goodnight and left us in a room to figure out how to leave as he basically ran to join the next group. The little bit of the house we saw (a hallway, a staircase, an auditorium, a dressing room and a small banquet hall) were cool, but there is very little positive that can be said about this ghost story-less, tour-less, "ghost walk/tour".

I have a great time each time I go! It's also interesting to know the history in our city! Every time I pass by a place where we did a ghost walk I can now say, "I know what happened here!" Dan does a great job at narrating the stories too!
Best place for ghost walks and run by the best guide Dan!

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

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.

Daniel of the Ghost Walks

I'm a paranormal enthusiast since founding Haunted Hamilton back in 1999. Started with Hamilton's Bellevue Mansion (2000) and been hooked ever since. Left HH in 2012 to focus on my passion, the Ghost Walks. I love telling the stories of witnesses, and from the past, with the goal of proving ghosts are real.
