My 7 stop - 90 Minute walking tour gives you depth and perspective to a well known land mark. We meet at the entrance of the east coast trail head called ‘Ladies Lookout Trail’ parking lot. We will venture into the trail to a peak where I know there to be a bald eagles nest. While visible to the naked eye I will bring a set of binoculars to view the birds in flight. We will discuss and view many other near by birds, plants, berries and trees specific to this part of the island. We stop at the Quidi Vidi Plantation, a collection of artist vendors. We discuss the land the plantation building sits on and why it was constructed. We will go inside to view all the work being done by local artists in their studio (Monday & Tuesdays are closed, please double check your date before booking. Tours will still go ahead). We will walk thought the community and stop to discuss the Cod Fishery and Moratorium of 1992, The Heritage Trust Foundation and debatably the oldest wooden building in North America and a stop at a battle ground of the 7 Years War in North America. We end at most notable business in the village, Quidi Vidi Brewery! It offers the best views of the gut and this is where our tour ends. You will have a credit to use at the Brewery Tap Room for a beer flight sample of 4 beers on tap of your choice or to be used at the gift shop.
History and learning about my surroundings is an obsession. Being deeply immersed in Canadian History and Newfoundland Culture, I have worked in Museums across Canada for nearly a decade. My goal is not to be perfect or know everything, but to give you a unique experience. My content is pulled from the archives, museums and locals. You won’t find my info on display boards around town. My personality is respectful to the content we discuss while keeping it fun and lively in between, there will be a pun or two! You are on vacation after all! My experience is different because it has small numbers which gives us an intimate atmosphere where you can connect and interact with your surroundings. I want to give you a firm understanding of Newfoundland History and a new perspective of the culture and people who live here.
