Full description

Explore the natural wonders in St. John and its historical attractions with a fun and friendly local guide. Get to the best attractions such as the Carleton Martello Tower, Fort La Tour, Rockwood Park, and the City Market. Enjoy a small group and avoid long lines and wait times for attractions. Upgrade to experience Saint John’s Reversing Falls Rapids on a sightseeing jetboat ride.

Embark in style with pickup from your hotel in a comfortable tour van. First, stop at the Saint John City Market, an iconic market dating back to the 1870's and the oldest farmers market in Canada. Browse the large variety of vendors that carry local produce, meats, seafood, and crafts.

Next, sit back and relax on a fully narrated driving tour through Saint John. Pass many popular sites and attractions such as the beautiful Rockwood Park, located in the heart of the city and Saint John Port, the bustling Uptown.

Drive around King Square, the thrilling Reversing Falls Rapids, Irving House, Red Rose Tea House, City Gardens, and historic Fort Howe while listening to the interesting narration of your guide.

Take a step back in history at the Carleton Martello Tower, one of the nine surviving Martello Towers in Canada dating back to 1812. Here, you can look out over the city of Saint John, its harbor, and the skyline from the viewpoint.

Make Fort La Tour your last stop, a National Historic Site of Canada and an archaeological site that contains the remains of a 17th-century fortified fur trading post in Saint John. Return back to your Downtown Saint John New Brunswick hotel.

I was on a cruise with my family and the excursions we wanted were fully booked. We lucked out though, because I found Get Your Guide and this tour was so much better. We were a group of 4 so we ended up with a private tour of Saint John with our guide Cher. The tour covered all the areas we wanted to see as well as some we hadn't heard about. We learned about the area on the way to each stop and were given time to go through at our own pace. Would definitely recommend this tour and Cher was a great guide.

Our guide was waiting for us on the pier as arranged. Cher was friendly and knowledgeable about Saint John, adding background to each of our stops. When we expressed interest in something we had read about, she gracefully worked it into our allotted time.

Saint John is one beautiful city with a rich history. And I cannot think of anyone better than Cher to visit this city with. Thank you for such a special tour and experience!
