Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your excursion begins at the pier as you head off on a tour of St. John's, the capital of Newfoundland and North America's oldest European settled city. It is also Canada's youngest province and Britain's oldest overseas colony. For hundreds of years, this historic capital has played host to explorers and conquerors, marauding pirates and merchant adventurers. Enjoy the stories of this city's historic past on a narrated drive.

See two historic churches and the colorful Victorian wooden houses that are characteristic of St. John's. Continue through the New World's first downtown, featuring historic landmarks, such as the Government House. Pause for a photo opportunity on North America's first street and see where Sir Humphrey Gilbert staked England's claim to the New World in 1583.

You'll visit historic Signal Hill where Italian inventor Marconi received the first wireless transatlantic signal in 1901. Enjoy the magnificent panoramic view out over the city and rugged coastline while viewing the continent's most easterly point in the distance. Learn about the site's 18th-century battles and 20th-century aviation wonders. Signal Hill's Cabot Tower was built to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Newfoundland's discovery in 1897. Next you'll explore the Rooms Museum. This museum is the new home of The Newfoundland Museum. View natural history displays and learn about St. John's native people.
