Discover St. John's, NL

Tick tock goes the clock!

Want to see as much of this area as you can but only in town for a few hours?

It is possible - with my help.

Each tour I offer gives you the opportunity to enjoy a picturesque drive, a walk in the fresh air, and a stop at a local eatery. Along the way you can listen to local music, and sample some locally made snacks, all while learning about the area. We'll also be stopping for photos along the way.

Take some time to explore the various tour packages and get in touch if you have any questions.

This is an iconic image in St. John's, Cabot Tower, at the peak of Signal Hill.

Literally so, as it's also one of the windiest spots we have, something to experience. On our drive up the hill we can visit the Signal Hill National Historic Site Visitor Centre to discover why this hill holds such an important place in our history. From here, if you're feeling energetic, you can explore the trail up to the tower? Or maybe the more level walk through the Johnson GeoCentre VistaPark would be your choice?

About your guide

Mary

A fifth generation Newfoundlander, I grew up and raised my own three children here in St. John's. My friends and family say I'm one of the friendliest, happiest people they know.

Life's too short not to enjoy yourself!

Never one to be stuck for a word, one of my favourite things to do is meet visitors,

discover where they come from and what brings them to St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.

I've yet to find one who wasn't delighted they came here.

So if this is your first chance to see "The Rock" I'd be happy to show you around.
