Our tours are designed to explore the rich history of the people, places and events that have formed this unique part of Canada over hundreds of years. Our friendly and knowledgeable guides won't overload you with dates but will paint a picture of how the town developed and how it played a central role in the history of the country and it's relationship with our southern neighbour, the United States.

Lily is exceptional at what she does and was a highlight of our Australian friends' visit to Niagara and Canada. Her insights into the origins, politics, wars, religion, cultures, architecture and social history of Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Niagara region, as well as interesting anecdotes about people and places, impressed and educated even those in our group, who have made countless trips to NOTL. Highly recommended. We will do it again the next time we are back in NOTL.

Very glad dh booked this tour for our first full day in NOTL. Lily really knows the town and its characters well, and she gave us a wonderful tour. If you're afraid it's too much walking, don't be. I feel like we probably didn't walk more than a mile and it's all level terrain in this beautiful little town. We both highly recommend this tour and hope that you get Lily.

We visited for our anniversary and had a marvelous time. Lily was a wealth of information and gave the right amount of backstory to make us feel like we were learning something. This was a great way to spend a morning.

You must do this tour if you go to NOL if you are at all a history buff. The tour gives you a wonderful sense of how people lived and died in this area. House designs, gravestones and a people's history. So enjoyed this tour!

Lily is one of the best tour guides I've ever met and her knowledge, humor and obvious love for this little gem of a town make this tour a "must do". She is able to tell the wide ranging history of NOTL in such a way that is intriguing, fun and enjoyable. We had a thoroughly delightful time!
