“Fright Night encounter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

On July 12th in the evening my husband and I went on the Fright Night ghost tour. I brought my camera in hopes of capturing some spirit orbs and was successful. Check out these two photos. You have to go and see what you can capture on film.

“Best docent ever...................”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Located across the river from Buffalo, NY, Fort Erie, Ontario is a place not to be missed. Historically restored to the time of the War of 1812 and well staffed to answer any question you might have. You start in the museum, very well done with many artifacts. There is a self guided guide handed out with 14 things to see in the fort area.

But for the best tour wait for a docent. If you are lucky you will get Daryl, he knows the fort inside-out and knows about the "War of 1812". He takes you back in time with is dress and manner. If you are there at the right time you will see a firing of muskets. The rooms are well done, and they include the Quartermasters stores and grand officers quarters. We hope you get Daryl, he was the BEST docent we have ever had.

“Even when closed good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

We went to Fort Erie knowing it may not be open, but the good thing is you can still get in through the regular parh without a fee in off season. You are able to walk the grounds, though the cannons, but not enter the actual buildings. Must be much more fund when they are in operation.
