Montreal like you’ve never experienced it before…

Downtown Montreal is a very busy and bustling place. With towering skyscrapers and a professional workforce that empties out by 5 p.m., it’s the last place one would expect to encounter the paranormal. However, just beneath the veneer of urban respectability lie many dark secrets, from forgotten cemeteries to ghost-infested buildings, and the numerous hauntings that go with them.

The Haunted Downtown Montreal Ghost Walk visits haunted hotels, a creepy church with an alleged resident demon, and other locations where ghosts have been spotted, including the infamous Club Le Cinq. This spooky old funeral home and mortuary has been converted into one of Montreal’s trendiest nightclubs, but clients sometimes get more than they bargained for, especially if they dare to visit the ladies’ room or the attic!

Learn the twisted and sickening “Legend of the Red Cross” and hear about Concordia University students living in their new residence, the former Grey Nuns’ Motherhouse, with a mysterious crypt lurking just a few meters below their bedchambers.

Discover how the City of Montreal is handling and disposing of all of the bodies it unearths in the old Saint-Antoine Cholera Cemetery, as workers carry out renovations of Place du Canada and Dorchester Square. Hear tales of deranged doctors dissecting near-death pregnant women to the approval of overzealous priests, learn about Mark Twain’s only recorded paranormal experience, discover the strange hauntings at the luxurious Queen Elizabeth Hotel, and encounter the unknown in Montreal’s deranged Downtown core.

Led by professional actor and storyteller Donovan King, this ghost tour is sure to please ghost hunters, history buffs and Hallowe’en lovers with its creepy tales of paranormal activity, evil demons and the ghostly spirits that haunt these unlikely places – in the heart of Downtown Montreal.

The Haunted Downtown Montreal Ghost Walk begins at Andrew’s Pub (1241 Guy Street, just south of Sainte Catherine Street). Guests are advised to wear sturdy walking shoes and to bring a camera. The tour is approximately 90 minutes and finishes at the Place du Canada.
