Niagara Bound Tours Serves a Variety of Clientele, Providing Exciting Information & Educational Content
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 she takes people around to amazing local historical sites. We are blessed with beautiful and interesting sites, where Lezlie can tell the stories of those who came before and made a difference.
As a descendant, Lezlie is also able to talk about contemporary issues affecting black people in Canada. This is a very positive tour where it is always her hope that two things occur:
- Those of colour feel prouder of who they are
- Those that come on the tour want to learn more
The tour covers history from the 18th 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 during that time.
The tour allows people to see other areas of the region, aside from Niagara Falls. For a bus group the tour lasts between four and six hours, depending on whether a hot lunch is included.
As well as offering bus tours, tours of two 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 as well. This tour includes a 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. Should you wish to add on some Niagara scenic activities or wine tours, that can be incorporated for your group as well. Tours lasts between three and six hours, depending what you would like to see and what time frame you have available. Contact us for more information about our amazing historical tours.
