Go on a couple of Montreal ghost walks July through October, and you'll never see Old Montreal's streets and landmarks in quite the same way. From Pierre du Calvet's hauntings to Auberge St. Gabriel's fantômes, choose your fright in the form of:
  • Montreal Ghost Walks: be prepared to walk through the streets of Old Montreal as a storyteller reveals the darker side of local history while haunted locations are explored. Choose either the east side or west side walking tour. Montreal ghost walks in 2013 run every Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from July 3 to August 31, 2013 and then every Saturday from September 7 to October 19, 2013.
  • Montreal Ghost Hunts: more interactive than the ghost walks, participants hunt down ghouls site by site and "meet" the ghosts behind the legends, who share their tales and tragedies, in person. Two ghost hunt themes are offered, each with a different itinerary: Montreal's Historical Crime Scenes or the New France Ghost Hunt. Montreal ghost hunts in 2013 run every Friday from July 5 to August 30, 2013.
  • Montreal Halloween Ghost Hunts: as with regular season ghost hunts, participants hunt down ghouls site by site and "meet" the ghosts behind the legends, who share their tales and tragedies, in person. Montreal Halloween ghost hunts in 2013 run October 25, October 26, October 30 and October 31, 2013.
