History and learning about my surroundings is an obsession. Being deeply immersed in Canadian History and Newfoundland Culture, I have worked in Museums across Canada for nearly a decade. <br><br>My experience is difference because there are no mass tourist groups or big bus tours. My experience has small numbers which gives us an intimate atmosphere where you can connect and interact with your surroundings. You are free to ask questions and we can have deep discussions. I want to give you a firm understanding of Newfoundland History and a new perspective of the culture!

Good to kill a few hours. Windy road to the top. Nice view of the sea and city. If you're able cone down the sea side trail. Im sure its great for sun rise

Wonderful views from this historic place (where Marconi received the first trans-Atlantic signals). Walking trails nearby as well.

We visited Signal Hill one afternoon, actually the same afternoon that we had visited Cape Spear in the morning. It was very busy with lots of traffic and people mulling about. It was a sunny afternoon and not to breezy which made it quite enjoyable. The views are stunning on a nice day. To be able to see Cape Spear in the distance, the panorama of the city of St. John's can be breath-taking on such a nice day. Highly recommend a visit especially if it is a beautiful sunny day.

Really enjoyed the visit to Signal Hill. Great history lesson with beautiful views of the Harbour and the city . It was very cool and windy but didn’t dampen our visit . Easy access nice hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Highly recommended in your visit to St John’s

Aside from the history lesson the view is spectacular. Hiking trails, and a gift shop. At the base there is an eco center /museum. Fun for a family.
