    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

    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.
