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! 😱😁
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.
Fantastic idea highly recommend
Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed!
I recommend it for sure!
They are not only informative about our city's history, they are also a lot of fun.
Daniel Cumerlato has a great knowledge of our "Dark" history and can weave a tale to keep you captivated...he has a great sense of humor too.
I do enjoy these Ghost Walks and hopefully you will too.
Thanks again Ghost Walks and I'll see you soon.
I actually caught something in one of my photos. A weird blue light were there was nothing?
The historical information on the city was worth it alone, the ghost stories made it exciting.
