A choice of two departure times means you can fit the tour into your vacation itinerary.

What to Expect
After choosing between two departure times, make your way to an easy-to-find meeting point in downtown Ottawa, where you’ll start your ghost tour. Follow your guide through on a walk through the city’s historic downtown, making stops at its most haunted sites. You’ll see Fairmont Château Laurier, where you’ll find out about its tragic connection to the Titanic . At the Rideau Canal (a Unesco World Heritage Site), learn about the 1,000 workers who died during its construction. Other eerie highlights include the Commissariat Building, Bytown Museum, and Lisgar Collegiate Institute, a reportedly haunted high school. Your spooky trip concludes with drop-off back near your departure point.
