FAQ & About The Hermitage
Check out our reviews at…
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.
Brought the kids and they also had a blast. And with the added history it's not only entertaining I appreciate educational aspect
Thank you for a great time .

The Hermitage Ruins
The ruins of an old mansion exist in the historic town of Ancaster (now part of Hamilton). For generations countless thrill-seekers have visited in search of ghosts. Home to the paranormal but also dark ritual. Maybe that’s why the land is cursed!
You don’t need to be psychic to feel it.
When walking up the hill towards the ruins. A heaviness weighs down on you. Adults can push these dreadful feelings aside, say it doesn’t exist.
Animals are different, possessing a sixth sense we’ve lost with evolution. On conservation land, but animals stay away from the path and ruins.
The Legend of Lover’s Lane
Maybe it begins with a legend. Known in this region simply as “Lover’s Lane”. So famous, there’s a street named after it…
