Come with me- along the narrow streets of this 'ancient' seaport city and relive history. This tour will take you off the beaten track and you will have a cultural experience that some tourists miss. You will be guaranteed an entertaining, fascinating and educational experience, in which our Newfoundland History will come alive to you through short dramatic speeches and re-enactments .Our journey will show how we were once England's oldest overseas Colony and despite many struggles and hardships we have emerged Canada's youngest and exciting province.

This tour will provide the visitor a great introduction to the literary culture and folklore of Newfoundland. You will not be bored and there will be time for your questions and comments.

Experience some of the really best scenic views of the city. Please don't forget to bring along your camera and your guide will indicate some unique views of our city. Always be prepared for sudden changes in the weather so have sunscreen or rainwear /windproofs handy at all times.
