“A field trip to remember”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

It was very educational, and enjoyable. The tour guides were all very welcoming and helpful, and they also dressed the part, which was pretty cool. One thing i liked the most about this fort, is that every single room is very well done,with furs, bunks, and actual wood in the fire places(which i thought was a nice touch) i had an overall blast at Port Royal, and if someone was to ask me if they should go or not, i would highly recommend that they should go.

“An Educational Experience”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

I traveled here with my history class, and I was excited to do so. Our country's founding and history really intrigues me and I was more than willing to learn some more about this historic landmark. Seeing the way people lived over four hundred years ago is in a colony that was almost exactly like this one was very interesting to think about, and made me think of what it was actually like living there when the colony was first created. The tour was exceptional, as me and my class learned a lot about how the colony was founded, why it was founded, and the culture that surrounded it. This site is very educational and teaches a lot about the founding of this wonderful country. If you want to learn about how Canada came to be, this site should be at the top of the list.
