Tour Details

Spooky Walking Routes

Our hand-picked routes explore all the streets and alleys of haunted Victoria. All tours start at the Visitor Information Centre, conveniently located right across from the Empress Hotel, except for Hallowe'en. (Check back for extra spooky location details then.)

The Hideous Happened Here

Behind Victoria's veneer of old-world charm, beautiful gardens and afternoon tea lies the darker past. On our tours, experience spell-binding tales of eccentric characters, heroic deeds, love, humour, hangings, murder – and ghosts!

Victoria's Best Storytellers

Our team of guides combine a love for history with a passion for riveting theatre. Tours are based on practiced and well-delivered stories, but each one includes just the right amount of historical detail to create the context for the story.

“One of the best walking tours we have ever taken.”
