It was the perfect way to spend a fall Sunday night. Our tour guide was amazing, engaging and so knowledgeable. Even if you are not a fan of the paranormal, the lesson on the city’s dark past is worth the price of admission. If you are a fan - this is perfect evening out for you. I would highly recommend you experience this walk - it’s a must do in the city. D&M BC Canada
