We took the Canadian Black History tour with Lezlie Harper from Niagara Bound Tours. The visual highlight of Niagara Ont. are the Falls.
This tour is both visual and mentally simulating, Lezlie shared with us a honeypot of history and knowledge . She was so very personable it was like hanging out with an old friend or family member who knew the lay of the land. Never a boring minute.

Lezlie Harper offers an authentic and personal look at what happened to enslaved people once they crossed the Niagara River and found freedom in Canada. This is an eye-opening dive into the part Canada played in helping freedom seekers find new lives and how they settled into various communities. Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent several hours on the Niagara Bound tour on our anniversary trip. The owner/guide Lezlie is an absolute gem! She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about historical accuracy. Her familial connection to the black history of the area adds a personal aspect that is uncommon on these types of tours. Her black history of Niagara tour should not be missed.

My sister and I had the opportunity to spend our May long weekend sunday with Lezlie as she gave us a history lesson NOT TOLD in Canadian school system.
It is absolutely imperative we acknowledge the history and stories shared by the freedom seeker descendants THEMSELVES. I want to thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us and I had a few "aha moments" during our visit on the untold black history within the Niagara Region. Lezlie you have given me a lot to think about and i really look forward to reading your book as there is clearly a lack of literature that acknowledges the accomplishments of those that came before us in this region! We need to hear these stories!

On a cold and rainy November day, Lezlie kept us spellbound for more than three hours. Not only is she an excellent source of factual information but her insights into subtleties of interpretation are truly engaging. We highly recommend her.

The Niagara Bound Tour was a definite highlight of my area stay. Lezlie’s expertise as a Freedom Seeker descendant shone through in her Black History narration. Her personal relationship with each tour member was much appreciated! This is a not to be missed part of a Niagara visit!

Our group of 12 took Lezlie's tour today - from Harriet Tubman's church to the black cemetery in Fort Erie. It was outstanding! I'm a history buff but she told us things of which I was completely unaware! John Brown recruited ex-slaves in Niagara for the raid on Harper's Ferry! Confederate generals had houses in Niagara On The Lake? John Wilkes Booth travelled through the area while plotting the assassination of President Lincoln......

You have got to take this tour.

We were Niagara Bound's first post-covid - and from our perspective, highly successful - experiment with private caravan tours. Lezlie Harper does a remarkable job highlighting the legacies of slaves and "freedom seekers" in the social geography of the Niagara region. As a sixth(?)-generation descendent of former slaves who came to Canada in the 19th century, Lezlie uses her family's oral histories to adorn and challenge the official narratives. Her colourful and sometimes alternative histories are fascinating. She's well-informed and well-connected, so she's got the scoops on whatever you're interested in. She also has a lot to add to the contemporary discussion about racial history in Canada. It's so crucial that we all understand this history of slavery and resistance in Canada, that this tour should be mandatory for everyone!
