Every night from now until October 31st, I run my "Hallowe'en Season" of ghost tours. The two-hour "Haunted Streets of Downtown Toronto" tour runs every night at 7:00 p.m., and the shorter "Ghosts of the University of Toronto" tour runs every night at 10:00 p.m. Both tours are held each and every night. Make sure to reserve though, as some nights are already almost sold out. Reservations may be made by contacting me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at (416) 487-9017. Hallowe'en is always a busy time of year, and I am thankful to all the people who help to keep it that way!
Sign up now, as some nights are already sold out!
