Go on a Montreal ghost walk June 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 2014 run every single Saturday from June 21 to October 25, 2014, and every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from July 2 to August 31, 2014.
  • 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 2014 run every Friday from July 4 to August 29, 2014.
  • 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. Halloween ghost hunt dates TBA.
Walking Tour Length: 90 minutes. Regular season tours and hunts start at 8:30 p.m. Halloween ghost hunts start at 6:30 p.m.
Language: all tours offered in English and French.
Are the Walks Suitable for Kids?: walking tour operators recommend the tours and hunts for ages 12 and up.
Does Montreal Ghost Walks Accommodate Private Groups?: Yes. Private groups are accommodated during the season as well as off-season, at the group's convenience.
