Quidi Vidi village is a gem and I want to show you why it shines! My 6 stop - 60 Minute walking tour gives you depth and perspective to a well known land mark. I have carefully planned this route to keep it on level ground with periods of standing, small amounts of travel, and a place to sit for your comfort. If you have a stroller or any mobility equipment, this tour is perfect for you! Our stops are paced for easy 10 min breaks at each stop. We meet at the Quidi Vidi Plantation front doors where we discuss the land the plantation 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 look over the wharf to discuss the cod fishery and moratorium of 1992. The we walk to the first registered heritage foundation home. Ill explain the significant of the foundation and give insight to how it shaped the builds we see today. One of those buildings being the historic restaurant, Mallard Cottage. Debatably the oldest wooden building in North America. Quidi Vidi played an important role in the 7 Years War between England and France, I take to a view where some of it happened! 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 end

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.
