My sister and I really enjoyed this tour. Lillian has tremendous knowledge of Niagara-on-the-Lake and we enjoyed learning the history, as well as a few gossipy stories about past residents! A great way to spend a couple of hours in Old Town.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Lilly, who gave us a wonderful overview of the area agri-business, the town architecture and history, and a look at characters who played an important part in the development of the town. She was gracious, knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. It was a perfect way for us to begin our visit... More

Lily's tour was amazing! I was blown away by her vast knowledge of Niagara-on-the-Lake and the surrounding region. The tour provided a wonderful insight into the heritage and history of this pretty town (including some much appreciated local gossip). Lily is a supremely entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide - and a really nice person. I'd definitely recommend this tour to... More

Our last day in a wonderful stay in NOTL, we wanted to do the walking tour to find out more of the marvellous history of the town and area. Tour operator, Lily, was very knowledgeable about the history of the town and area. Highly recommend the Old Town Tour.

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 satisfying "revision" for those who thought they well understood the place from earlier visits. I cannot think of a finer way to... More

We took the Old Town Tour earlier this week with tour guide Lily. She was extremely knowledgeable and really brought beautiful NIagara-on-the-Lake's old town to life. Our time on the tour (about two hours) was time well spent. We were fascinated by her explanation of the history of the town, persons of interest, architecture and historical events. She also gave...

On a lovely spring day, my girlfriend and I decided that we'd like to take a guided walk around the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Lily was our guide, and she showed us many historic sites, and described each one with much enthusiasm. I highly recommend it, well worth the time and money. We received a very personal tour, and she was... More
