This tour uses an accessible mini-coach equipped with a motorized wheelchair lift and traces over 400 years history of Canada's oldest incorporated city's history. As your guide takes you past prominent landmarks and historic buildings, you'll be introduced to the many fascinating personalities and events that made Saint John the greatest little city in the east.
Your first stop is at Wolastoq Park, a great place to survey the harbor. Next, you'll stop to view the famous Reversing Falls Rapids at Fallsview Park, touted as the sight no one should miss on a visit to Saint John. From the bluffs, your guide will explain that twice daily the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy rise faster than the river can empty. When this happens, the mighty tides push the river water upstream, causing the rapids to run in the opposite direction and the St. John River to flow backwards. You'll have approximately 20 minutes to explore the Old City Market before boarding your coach and returning to the ship.
