“So Much Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

Amazing tour, the guides portray terrific characters and are very knowledgeable about Macdonald. The tour is really upbeat and fun, different from a lot of other walking tours I've been on. What really set this tour apart was the theatrical element! Throughout the tour, actors in costume perform little scenes and songs...really adds something more to the experience. Sometimes they have special guests leading the tour, I went on a tour with Steve Paikin and later this summer, Don Cherry will be coming. If you live in Kingston or are visiting, you should check this out!

“In Sir John A's Footsteps Historic Walking Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

We took the Friday night 5pm tour and it was not your average historic tour.
Led by costumed guides with actors popping up along the way doing very entertaining short scenes around beautiful old buildings that Sir John A once frequented. An easy walk through beautiful downtown Kingston a must see and do for all ages!

“Sir John A. Macdonald walking tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

We caught the Friday 5pm tour which is a walking theatrical production. Seven actors/singers made the history come alive. Lots of humour and fun. Same tour is daily at 10am and 2pm. (but shorter). Great for families. Not dry at all. Walk is easy. Tourists from around the world enjoyed this tour.
