Niagara Bound Tours Serves a Variety of Clientele, Providing Exciting Information & Educational Content
Our Dedication to History
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
- W.E.B. DuBois
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 motor coach group; the tour lasts between four and six hours, depending on whether a hot lunch is included. The tour can also include a tour of the church that is believed Harriet Tubman attended when she was in the area.
In addition to bus tours, caravan tours are available as well as private tours for two or more. These tours last four hours. All tours include a bit of walking but can also happen without getting out of the vehicle. Should one decide not to get off at some spots they miss seeing the beauty of the site but it is completely up to the visitor.
