“Really Interesting and Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It was a chilly October evening with a clear starry sky. No biting insects to spoil the mood. Alan Melanson showed amazing knowledge and dedication while keeping everyone anxiously waiting for the next tale. This candlelight tour was tremendously interesting and informative. Not to be missed! Thanks Alan!

“History with Passion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

It was a dark and drizzly night....and Alan Melanson, a tenth generation Acadian, guided nine lantern toting souls through the graveyard of Fort Anne with dramatic flair. His passion for the history of Annapolis Royal is inspiring.

The tours are led by Alan Melanson, who is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area and the people who lived and died there. He is quite a storyteller. Highly recommended.
