Our guide was funny and informative and took us into the lives of the Ojibwe and French Voyageurs who traded in furs over two centuries ago.

The tour was fantastic. The guide was dressed in clothes from fur trading time. Heard details of the fur trading life. At the end of the tour you can explore yourself and ask any questions, also walk by the snake river. Will definately visit again.
