The tour leaders are well versed in everything Lunenburg. Plenty of time to take pictures and ask questions. I'm glad I took this great walking tour, you will be too!

I have been on many ghost tours around the world and must say this is the best one yet. An absolute must-do if you come to Lunenburg, like history, and are not afraid of the dark.

Fabulous walking tour with a local guide. A great way to learn the history, fun facts, and get a feel for the people who live and work in this amazing town. Should not be missed!
