Only 5 of us in group. We walked through historic parts of the city with talk of the areas. He explained the building facades and their part in development of the city. Went through shopping areas, both modern and local. Saw park and special shops. Enjoyed tour very much!

Reviewer: Shirley Hale
Although it was pouring rain most of the tour we still enjoyed it very much. The tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about her adopted city. At the beginning, first stop, the talk was a little bit long since we'd only just started the walk but other than that our was excellent. Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Paula McMahon
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was excellent, and we learned much about the history of St. John. Our tour extended the alloted time, as we were very interested in learning, and she didn't rush us along. Highly recommended if you don't have young children.

willow was a great tour guide. Obvious an expert on local history and full of amusing little stories. Leisurely pace with time for photo stops. She also had old postcards to show is what things used to look like. On a practical level, she spoke loudly and clearly so we didn’t have to struggle to hear her. Highly recommended for anyone interested in history. You will love Willow.

Reviewer: betsy gullihur
Our tour guide was excellent! She was informative, entertaining, and well-versed on the history of St. John's. She showed us a number of points of interest, which we later explored after completing the walking tour. A really great day!
