  • Fantastic informative tour, our guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable. We gained lots of little insights into the history of the fort and the local area. If it's cold and/or windy make sure you wear a warm jacket. Highly recommend this tour - well worth the 1.5 hours, an easy walk around the grounds with one easy set of stairs to negotiate
  • Such a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was a wealth of information. Kids loved it and beautiful views too.
  • Mary our guide was very informative and great with our grade 3/4 kids on camp. As the teacher, I learnt a great deal and the kids loved being able to do all the interactive things.
  • A most informative 2 hours, congratulations Mary on your knowledge. This piece of our history must be retained for posterity.
  • Great history. Great tour
