  • Marco Polo Cruise Terminal, 111 Water St, Saint John, NB E2L 0B1, Canada

Discover Saint John and experience a city that has evolved with time, yet still keeps its unique character. Your tour guide will show you the many sights that Saint John has to offer while explaining the city's rich past and current challenges.

Meet your guide one hour after your ship’s arrival at 100 Water Street, a meeting point within walking distance of the cruise port.

You’ll start the exploration by following your guide to Prince William Street. This well-known strip, once considered the “Wall Street of Canada” has long been known to have one of the best collections of Victorian-era architecture in the country. Proceed down King Street to Market Slip, a site where Loyalist settlers from the United States first arrived in the late 18th century. Also along King Street are the 225th Anniversary Clock, Barbour’s General Store, and the Policeman’s Museum.

Continue past Trinity Church, a religious structure built in Gothic style, and head to King’s Square to to visit an authentic 19th-century country general store. This square is a leafy green space covered in elm trees and begonias is also home to the Imperial Theatre from 1913 and one of the world’s only two-tiered bandstands. Leave the square and continue to City Market, a center of commerce that survived a large fire in 1877.

You’ll finish your excursion back at your original starting point.

Art was enthusiastic and accommodating. His grasp of local history was terrific. Our only regret is that we forgot to offer him a tip!

We took a really well paced walking tour of Saint John with Byron. He took us past places of interest, pointed out various architectural styles and brought it all around by connecting the history with all we saw. Interesting, informative and with the perfect drop off at the city market. Loved it! Byron was pretty great as a guide. Our family of four highly recommends!

A very interesting tour of downtown St John. Historical information was provided that brought to light the quite amazing history of the city, including the 1877 fire that destroyed 90 of the city. Our guide answered our questions, and if we asked one where he was not sure of the correct answer, he told us so. The tour was well worth while.

It was easy to find our tour. The directions were very clear. We had the best tour guide. His name was Dave and he has even written a book about Saint John. He was very accommodating. The town itself isn't as exciting as some other places we have been. We mostly looked at buildings and talked about the history of the town. We did end in the Market Place. The only down side which had nothing to do with the tour or Dave, was that for this native Californian, it was so cold! It distracted me a bit from the tour. Our tour was at 8:00am. Maybe later in the day when it is warmer.
