This 10 stop, 90 minute long walking tour will give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich history, deep traditions, and cultural heritage that downtown St. John's has to offer. I will engage your sense of taste, touch, sight, and smell as we explore what its like to live in Downtown St. Johns in the 1800’s to today! Starting in the historic harbour front, we will move along the boardwalk discussing Signal Hill, Cabot Tower and their history. Our first stop will be at the National War Memorial. Completed in 1924, it is still the focus of all remembrance day events today. Moving along, I will point out family run businesses both current and long forgotten. Walking down Jelly Bean Row, you will not be short of photo opportunities! Houses of every colour and shape to be seen, built over a 100 years ago. We will stop at the Anglican Church. Rebuilt following the Great Fire of 1892, it is a stunning example of neo-Gothic architecture. Continuing on from the church is the St. Johns Court House located on a piece of property with a ghostly past. Onward down Duckworth Street to one of the most best known areas, George Street. With more bars per square foot than any other street in North America. We pass popular restaurants on our way to Murray Premise, where the tour ends with the history of the Cod Fishery.
10% of your sale will go to clean up initiatives around the province to keep this beautiful country side pristine! 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. My content is pulled from the thousands of hours spent in the archives, museums and one on one time interviewing locals. You won’t find my info on display boards around town!

I will take you through 400 hundreds of years history with the fresh smell of ocean air that pairs perfectly with the winding streets of St. Johns. I have carefully planned a route that takes the steep hills of st johns into consideration and kept elevation gains to a minimum. With that being said, this tour is suitable for people with basic fitness levels.
