Anyone visiting Niagra-on-the-lake should not miss the chance to go on "The Old Town Tour". The tour guide Lillian was wonderful. Her knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness was a perfect mix. She brought the history of Niagra-on-the-lake to life. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. Irene and Bill Richmond Scotland

Lily, our guide was informative, friendly and very good at what she does. She shared a combination past and present history and gave us a real taste of what Niagara on the Lake was and is today.

If you are staying in the town, you must take the tour. Lily is so knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of the area and the hotel we were staying in. If you have the time, it is well worth the 2 hours. Thanks Lily!
