We really enjoyed our walking tour of St. John. Our guide shared stories about the history of the town and took us to the significant historical sites. We also stopped at a fun market with artists’ booths and other goods.

Our party of seven had a wonderful tour experience on the Historic Saint John Walking Tour. The tour guide was very engaging and had a great knowledge of the history, architecture, and culture of Saint John. The pacing of the tour was excellent with pauses for breaks after walking up hills. I rate this tour with five stars and would highly recommend it to others.

Judy Martin was our tour guide for the 10/9/19 Historic St John Walking Tour. Excellent tour! Judy was very knowledgeable about the history of St John as well as current events of the community. The tour was very thorough and covered a variety of aspects. We found the history fascinating, and the gardens beautiful. Our tour guide was energetic, fun and conscientious about everyone in the tour (one lady really needed a restroom & Judy made sure to get her to one, without detracting from the tour for the others). There were 6 of us on the tour and everyone had a great time! Highly recommend this tour (and if possible, highly recommend requesting Judy Martin as your guide).
