A Mix of Spooky Stories & Scientific Skepticism

This is not your average ghost tour. Yes, we talk about ghosts and visit Toronto’s reportedly haunted sites, but we dig a bit deeper! As we walk the dark streets of Toronto, you’ll learn what ghost investigators contend with when they look into reported hauntings, and we’ll reveal some of the natural phenomena that could be mistaken for the paranormal. Along the way, we’ll stop at sites such as Old City Hall, MacKenzie House, and Ryerson University.

We’re not out to prove or disprove the existence of ghosts (no one has done either yet), but to provoke thought and inform our guests. Our goal is to educate and entertain! Our approach to the subject is both sensitive and serious as we attempt to separate the folklore from the fact, the legends from the actual history. Please note that, for better or worse, we do not enter any of these sites and remain safely in the unhaunted outdoors. Bring a jacket!
