So informative. A must do when visiting Trinity. Kevin was so knowledgeable and articulate. We developed an understanding of the difficulties about 16th Century living in such a remote area.

Guide, Kevin Toope, is a 3rd generation fisherman & teacher from the area. He gives an outstanding tour of Trinity and of the culture and lifestyle of the area! He shares a wealth of historical information as well as his personal experiences growing up in Trinity. As an added plus he shares recordings and photos to give you a a sense of what Trinity was like back in time. This is a must do tour when you’re in town.

Kevin is an amazing guide who shares his experience, knowledge and enthusiasm. We learned a lot about Trinity, life in Newfoundland and the way that the historical society has preserved the town, and now many generations will be able to return to learn about it too. He talks fast but I could always understand him. He was very generous with his time and knowledge.

We just completed the walking tour with Kevin. It was nothing short of exceptional. We learned so much about Trinity, the cod fishery and Newfoundland lore - it was unparralled in terms of everything we have done in this area. It was simply exceptional. Easy, accessible walking with lots of history and lore about the area. Not to be missed. At the end of the tour, Kevin showed us around the fishing cabin and explained the salting of cod process to us. Thank you ever so much.

This is an easy walking and very informative tour. Kevin, the guide, is very personable and was born and raised in Trinity. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the history of the area through his wealth of information. He also shared personal accounts of both family members and others who experienced life in area. It’s well worth your time. We learned a lot and would highly recommend it to anyone.

If you plan to visit Trinity, this tour is a must. Although the town is a lovely collection of buildings, shops, theatre, and restaurants, Kevin Toope’s stories make it come alive. He is a member of a longtime Trinity family and is well positioned to discuss the town’s history. Through him one learns about the persons who lived and died there, the challenges they faced, their aspirations and legacies, and the town’s current state of affairs. He also situates Trinity’s place in Newfoundland’s history. Finally, he notes that Trinity’s archives are uniquely complete, and that they could provide relevant links to families researching their roots. Kevin has done his homework, and his love of giving this tour shows. You will spend two hours with him and cover less than one kilometre on level ground which should make this tour accessible for most.

Very informative two and a half hours of history of Trinity and Newfoundland. Very professionally done with props and pictures. This is more of a historical tour then architectural although Kevin does discuss the different types of salt box houses. Just show up in front of his house at 10 am. A must do if in the area

I don’t know what I was expecting, but Kevin’s walking tour exceeded my expectations a hundredfold. At $15 per person for 2 hours and 30 minutes of history, culture, scenic beauty and a few good laughs, this is the best deal around. Be sure to bring extra cash because you will want to tip this gentleman generously!

This was our first trip to Trinity and we decided to do the walking tour. Kevin was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge and love of Trinity are out of this world. He was not only informative but made the information relevant to today's history. He answered all of our questions. He was very friendly and made us feel like family.

Kevin is just wonderful. A very comphrensive 2 hour talk about Trinity Nfld. in particular, but he covers the whole history of Newfoundland. Great historical photos and audio which brings to life the hard life in Newfoundland. We left really understanding so much about the Province and it's history.
A lovely walk through Trinity.
This tour is a must to understand the Province, its history, its current problems and its promise.
