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!

I would recommend anyone to go on this tour, it was enlightening to get a taste of some of the history that is in this area. I was quite surprised...and loved every minute of this tour. Lezlie was very personable and is very knowledgeable of the history within the Niagara Region and she also has personal experiences and stories, which made it extra special for me. Loved this tour and would recommend this to anyone visiting the area or anyone residing in this neck of the woods.
