we drove to this site mainly to see Joe's Bar only to be told that it wasn't open this year. I was disappointed but the scenery on the drive there made the trip worthwhile. I am a big fan of The Grand Seduction which Joe's bar is featured in. If you haven't watched it, do it!

They kindly let us in a couple of days early while they were getting ready to open. The ladies were very sweet and helpful. They gave us an overview and were available if we needed to ask more questions. We walked through the site and it really brings home how people had to survive. The site is non profit and while it is a little out of the way we relit it was worth it. It was great for us when it wasn’t officially open so I expect it is even better when it is

Oh this was so terrific! We had never heard of the TV series but watched it a year later. The buildings seem terrifically authentic in every way, and just picturing life that wild and unpredictable gives you a real sense of how fortunate we are today. Highly recommend this! ( we are a couple around 70). We went in Sept 2019.

The tour was amazing!! I seen the movie a few years back and seeing this all in person made it so much more real. Our tour guide, Bride did such a good job at making the site come to life. She planted imagery in my head and brought it so you could see where and how they settled. She was very humorous and filled with smiles. Even during these times, we wore mask inside all the buildings but wasn’t allowed to touch the props (it’s hard to clean everything and being a tourist spot, that’s impossible!). Never stopped at the restaurant/ welcome center, only long enough to get our passes

Beautiful tour! Such a scenic area steeped in the history of NL. A TV mini-series set that brings you back to the early settlers of NL and the hardships they endured! Highly recommended

We went for a tour on a day it was drizzling and the only two on the tour. The tour guide took us around and did a good job of explaining the random passage story and of how life must have been back then.

The site is picturesque and We enjoyed the tour.

It was damp and cool so stopped for coffee at the restaurant skip the coffee not very good. We didn’t eat here but the stew looked good.

Weather was great, guide was very knowledgable, and the setting was beautiful. Would give people from away a very good indication of how difficult it would have been for the first settlers to survive. Would be good for Newfoundland kids as well so they would have an idea of how their ancestors lived.

The hour long tour was fantastic. Our guide Linda really brought the story of Random Passage to life. There was a lot of work in building the buildings for the set and more to maintain it. Such a beautiful place and we had a beautiful day for it!

This was amazing & definitely worth the visit, our tour guide unfortunately don’t remember his name but a young man who was very knowledgeable. Explained in depth the history of the area. Allowed us to take as many pictures as we wanted. The tearoom where you purchase your ticket which is $10.00 per adult Hasan amazing little lunch menu. Everything homemade and delicious. You can also purchase souvenirs if you’d like. Would definitely recommend
