Niagara on the Lake's Original Walking Tour

It’s the best way to connect to and feel the heartbeat of our town!

Explore the sites that echo with stories of the past, heroes and villains, revolution and war, slavery and freedom, arts architecture and culture. Discover the secrets of how this little town has adapted to changing times and changing fortunes.

Did you know our main street- full of pretty shops and restaurants today and rich with the history of a provincial capital was once the site of a "biker bar" and a gas station?

Our local guides’ enthusiasm and knowledge will combine to inform and captivate you each step along the way. A ninety minute walking tour, visiting more than 20 sites.

“a "must-do" for your weekend in NOTL”
This tour thouroughly exceeded our expectations. Our guide Lily was both gracious and a wealth of both historical and local information. The two hour tour is useful as both an introduction to the charming town, as well as a satisfying "revision" for those who thought they well understood the place from earlier visits. reviewed July 7, 2014 on Trip Advisor
