Hallowe’en 2017 with Muddy York Walking Tours

Temperatures are getting cooler, days are getting a little shorter, and “pumpkin spice” everything is now upon us. And, most of all, all the Hallowe’en merchandise has been on the shelves for a while now. That means it’s time for another year’s worth of ghost tours with Muddy York Walking Tours.

Once again, we’ve partnered with our friends at the Haunted Walk for the Hallowe’en season.

An alternative to our Walking Tours…

Why not have Richard come to you and give you a Talking Tour!

Here are a couple. You can browse the complete list to the left.


Travel back in time to visit all the most significant events and landmarks in Toronto from 1910 until 1969.

This brand-new series of six talks explores the history of Toronto from 1910 through to the end of the 1960s. We take a look back at the most compelling news stories, architecture, events, landmarks and entertainments of each decade. Each presentation includes a lot of rare archival photographs of old Toronto, as well as short newsreels, video and music that had audience members singing along as they reminisced about Toronto in days gone by. This series was put together for a group that meets for 90-minutes, with an intermission in between. So, each decade is made up of two 45-minute presentations, that could be given on different dates, or given together, with a break in between. This series, or parts of it, are ideal for older audiences, who will find a lot that they remember from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s or 1960s.


2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Confederation, but what was Toronto like during the 100th anniversary celebrations in 1967? With a new city hall, a new national flag, and the last time the Leafs won the Stanley Cup, it was an exciting time in Toronto!

Specially prepared for the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 2017, this presentation shows what Toronto was like leading up to the centenary of Confederation celebrations back in 1967. We start with a look back at Toronto’s changing skyline, as the first new banking towers went up, and Toronto got a brand-new city hall.
