The Haunted Walk specializes in creating and sharing extraordinary experiences. We are best known for our award-winning evening walking tours of local ghost stories and darker history by lantern light. Our tour guides deliver a wide variety of unique walking tours in Kingston, Ottawa and Toronto, Ontario.

Tour guides are the heart and soul of the Haunted Walk. They breathe life into the stories and make certain that every one of our customers goes home satisfied (if not a little scared). It is a work environment where all tour guides play an important role in developing and promoting the tours. Our staff come from diverse backgrounds, but all have that positive and unique outlook that makes our tours so popular. It is more than just a job for every one of us!

  • A flair for the dramatic and storytelling skills.
  • An abundance of diplomacy and tact.
  • A willingness to learn and follow a set of standards.
  • An ability to work and contribute ideas as part of a team.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit (pun intended).
  • An interest in local and Canadian history.
  • A high school diploma or equivalent (minimum).
  • Bilingualism will be considered a strong asset.
