Absolutely brilliant! Miss Edith certainly knew her history (for an old dead dame!) Even although it was chilly the gruesome details were even chillier!

Entertaining activity. Guide dresses up in a period costume. Takes you around to discover historical sites of old Montreal. Gives you a history lesson and at the same time recounts somewhat gruesome/ scary/funny stories linked to Montreal’s past. Interactive. Pleasant experience

Mr. E (our guide) was a performer in every sense. He kept us entertained. When he gets going his storytelling is hypnotizing. Myself and my four kids loved it (ages 10 to 19). We did this at the end of our vacation, but now I wish I did it first because some of the stories took place in actual restaurants. It would have been really neat to hear about these haunted venues and then go eat there!

Awesome and fun tour.

This tour was completely worth it. Our guide, Mr E, had a terrific stage presence. It was so much fun to see how well he wove whatever was really happening around us. A truck rumbling by noisily when he was recreating a prayer that saved the first settlers, so he dramatically yelled at them that they were getting in the way of his being saved. It was very easy to see that Mr E was really invested in all the stories and legends he was telling us.He'd obviously done a TON of research about the stories on his own, going around and talked to various owners and neighbors of the places that are haunted. He actually got to go into the cells of the Last Days under the court house once, by approaching a security guard when he arrived at an event unexpectedly early. This gave an extra depth to his descriptions, as they were so vivid coming from him He was so much fun to listen to. Mr E was very good at working with the younger people on the tour, giving them a chance to engage on their own level, as well as working and adapting various facts for people who were from either elsewhere in Canada, or the States such as myself. We were all given the feeling that we were being included on an equal level. At the very end of the tour, after answering any questions we had, Mr E even helped us with directions back to the nearest metro. I would highly recommend this tour to other people, visitors and locals alike, and my hostess has said that she would like to take more people who she sees to see the tour as well.

Great actors that have you captivated with their stories from the beginning. Rain or shine this tour takes place. We had a really rainy night, which just added to fun. Got to see parts of the city which we had never seen before.

Mr. E was a great tour guide. This is a must do if your going to Montreal!! A lot of walking but worth it!

Definitely one of the highlights of our visit the scenery, stories, characters... Very engaging and entertaining! But there's a reason they say no one under 12... could be a little intense for even 12-14 yr olds

We had such a wonderful time! The teen daughters loved it! An interesting twist on the history of Montreal. Donovan was outstanding as the ghoulish tour guide

The drama of the guide and the beauty of Montreal by darkness made this an interesting and entertaining tour. Learn history with a dose of reality to the backdrop of Montreal. Great guide.
