We offer this attraction tour which runs 4 to 5 hours. It is an early Canadian Black history of Niagara Canada. It can be done on the Niagara-Buffalo side as well. Tours are conducted by a person whose ancestors were slaves in the U.S. but came to Canada in 1850. This tour provides information that is authentic and thought provoking. It is described as outdoor museum showing some lovely sites in Niagara region. Sites shown are the Niagara Movement meeting, crossing point of Josiah Henson (Uncle Tom), cemetery where former slaves are buried, church of Freedom Seekers and Harriet Tubman, grave of Anthony Burns and much more. This tour is available for 2 or more people. Can also arrange other tours as well.
