Description:

There is no better way to experience the spectacular sites and atmosphere...

There is no better way to experience the spectacular sites and atmosphere of Lunenburg's historic streetscapes and working waterfront than on foot. Lunenburg Walking Tours was created to offer visitors to our UNESCO World Heritage Site town - one of only two such urban sites in North America - an educational and entertaining directed walk through history. Co-Owners Shelah Allen and Ashlee Feener, both descendants from original founding families, bring authenticity, accuracy, and levity, all woven into great stories, to your outing. Tours are at a gentle pace, vary in length depending on the tour, go rain or shine, and require a reservation by phone/text or email.

We took the tour offered at 10:00 a.m. and it was well worth it. Our guide, Ralph, is the retired curator of the local museum for three decades and a remarkable guide. The tour costs 20 CAD and begins at the Lunenburg Academy high above the city about 6-7 blocks from the wharf. The tour is supposed to last about... More

Our walk was on a Sunday morning. It was a easy walk around this cute seaport town. Our tour guide was vivacious and knowledgable. She spoke clearly and had perfect volume for our group of 9. She was very personable and added fun information of her own.

We have been planning a week long trip to Lunenburg for some time and I did my homework to plan for the best things to do in a short time.....this was on the top of my list. It did not disappoint! My husband was less enthusiastic about a walking tour but went along mostly to appease me, but I have... More

The tour is fast paced and you duck in and out of various buildings. The guide was informative and energetic, and gladly shared her personal stories. You cover everything from the old school, to various homes and churches, to the waterfront. There is a little bit for all. The total walking time is about 1.5 hours but you only walk... More

Lunenburg has such a unique history and even more so at night! I have done the Walking Tours in the daytime before, but this was our first Ghost Walk and Ashlee had visitors and locals alike sharing stories on the tour. Fun, informative and highly entertaining! A must-do in Lunenburg!

This was a great tour provided by a local whom has a family history in Lunenburg. She was knowledgeable, had a vast amount of information and showed the architecture evolution over the years. The city is beautiful and great for pictures.

Sheilagh is a compelling story teller that entertains and amazes you with an insight to her town that is simply fasinating especially when she is an important part of that history.

The Walking Tour of Lunenburg was a great way to start our visit to this historic city and despite the hilly terrain, there were very few hills to navigate during the walk. We learned a tremendous amount about the history of Lunenburg and the people who lived...and still live in the city. The guide was interesting and informative but keep... More

The walking tour starts at the highest part of town and ends by the waterfront. Might be best to park at the bottom or in the middle. We had to walk back up and we were exhausted at the end of the evening. The tour guide gave stories about the architecture, as a background to why the town is a... More
