This is a personal favorite theme walk of the author. Part historical, part great acting of the guide, these tours are entertaining and informative.
Halifax: In an older city that suffered much devastation and loss of life due to the largest explosion of its time, Halifax, Nova Scotia is certain to have its fair share of ghosts and ghost stories. It is a port of call on the majority if not all, Canada/New England cruises; however, if you want to experience a ghost walk, ensure you are in port in the evening hours.
New Orleans: Shivers! Voodoo, vampires and ghosts! Tour the French Quarter for two hours if you dare at $28 pp. This walk also includes a visit to a haunted tavern – just in case you need liquid fortification!
London, England: As one of the supposedly most haunted cities in the world, a ghost walk has stiff competition with all the other attractions found here. But in case you have a free couple of hours at dusk, join Richard Jones, paranormal author extraordinaire, on his spine-tingling walk and talk through the ancient, forbidding streets. It’s a bargain in a pricey city.
Our standard word of advice in visiting a new city is taking the hop-on, hop-off bus tours when available to quickly orientate you to an unfamiliar setting, and to give you ideas of what to see and do, but nothing beats a walking tour to really absorb the local atmosphere. Take time to indulge in this activity on your next destination vacation.
