Private Tour Groups

For private groups we are able to cater our walking tours to your groups’ wants and needs. If you are most interested in aspects of the War of 1812, for example, we can arrange to have our tour guides put emphasis on this area.

We are able to vary the length or distance of your tour depending on the audience. If the group consists of individuals who cannot walk long distances, the tour can be altered to accommodate this. As well, the tour can start and end at various locations depending on your itinerary..

If walking the town does not interest your group, tours of the Museum can also be arranged. Guided by the Museum’s Curator, the group tour gives a much more in depth look into our collection and the history of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The Museum features a permanent gallery which explores a chronological history of Niagara-on-the-Lake, as well as temporary exhibits that change a couple times each year.
