Lezlie is the proud guide of Niagara’s Black Canadian history tour/outdoor museum tour. In Canada we have not been as diligent in protecting our historic buildings as the U.S. so I take people around to sites. We are blessed though with beautiful and interesting sites where I tell the stories of those that came before.
Because I am a descendant, I am also able to talk about contemporary issues affecting Blacks in Canada as well. This is a very positive tour where it is always my hope that two things occur. One that those of colour feel prouder of whom they are and two, that those that come on the tour want to learn more.
The tour covers history from the 18th century to the 20th century. Sites of famous people are also visited such as Harriet Tubman, Josiah Henson (Uncle Tom’s Cabin book), Anthony Burns as well as others that visited Niagara are mentioned.
The tour allows people to see other areas of the region besides Niagara Falls. For a bus group the tour lasts between 4 and 6 hours depending on whether a hot lunch is included.
As well as offering bus tours, tours of 2 or more are also available. These tours last four hours. You are picked up by a private vehicle in Niagara Falls, St. Catharines or Niagara on the Lake. Arrangements can be made for pick up in other destinations by request also.
Also, this tour has a small bit of walking but can also happen without getting off the bus although should one decide not to get off at some spots they miss seeing the beauty of the site.
For bus tours or school trips, hot lunches or bagged lunches can also be included. Also should you wish to add on a bit of Niagara scenic activities or wine tours that can be incorporated for your groups as well.
Tours lasts between three and six hours depending what you would like to see and what time frame you have available. See you on tour!
