Steven was great! He set up a private tour for my sister's bachelorette party in St. Catherine's - even though tours were no longer offered at that location. He even sent up a custom payment link for us! He knew a lot about the history...More

Very enjoyable afternoon. Gary pointed things out and told us all sorts of stuff I'm sure I'll never remember. But we did park on Byron Street when we came back to shop the next day! THAT I remembered. Bought cheese too. yum

Great tour. Great guide. You will be full and get to see plenty of food shops and stores. Visited with my wife on our 1st anniversary. Very beautiful place to visit year round.

Hi Adrienne, Children are welcome but there are a few considerations. Our NOTL afternoon tours starting in April will be about a 4 km walk over a 3-3.5 hour period. Also we do not offer a children's rate as our vendors... More

Good afternoon. Have just read the reviews and am thinking this might just be something that we should do. But I have questions. My sister and husband (Missouri) and myself and husband (South Dakota) are arriving in Kitchener on May 13. After a stay there, then over to Niagara Falls, we will be arriving in NOTL on Sunday, May 17 for two days. We are seniors. My husband is a diabetic, still on pills-not insulin yet. I am certain you have had this situation arise before. Will he be able to find food that he can enjoy? He may have a small sip of wine. Would there be other beverages available for him? How do we make arrangements? Can this be done on the day of the tour as I don't feel I can set something up without visiting with the other 3 in our traveling party? Thanks in advance for this information. Linda in South Dakota
