About Ghostly Walks
Ghostly Walks are 90 minute walking tours conducted every night from May 1 to October 31 and on weekends through the rest of the year. During the tour, expect to hear great storytelling as we guide you through the streets and alleys of Victoria, a ghost-hunter’s paradise.
We have collected more than five hundred tales of ghostly encounters in Victoria and in our thorough researches we have uncovered the sordid truth behind many of the City’s most gruesome crimes and tragic accidents. On our tours, we weave together the ghosts and the stories behind them, bringing Victoria’s dark history to life.
Ghostly Walks have been developed by John Adams, one of Victoria’s foremost historians and storytellers. John has been leading tours of Victoria since 1970. He has appeared on a number of TV series including Ghosts & Ghoulies and OLN’s Creepy Canada. The tours are conducted by John and his team of expert guides.
Ghostly Walks are guaranteed to be spell-binding, entertaining, memorable, and most of all … spine-tingling!
