Explore Saint John during this four-hour sightseeing tour.

Your 4-hour tour begins with a stop at Saint John City Market, Canada’s oldest continuously operated farmer’s market. Here you can find unique souvenirs for family and friends, grab a coffee or tasty treat from a local café, or just walk around taking in the sights of this historic building. For a truly unique historical experience, ask your tour guide for the names of the businesses and vendors in the City Market who have been operating for over 100 years.

The next stop on the tour is the Reversing Falls Rapids, a unique phenomenon created by the collision of the Bay of Fundy and the Saint John River. Step out onto the SKYWALK observation deck for a spectacular view of the Reversing Falls Rapids. The SKYWALK also provides a great view of the city and “uptown” skyline.

Following the SKWALK observation deck, the tour continues to Carleton Martello Tower. Set high on a rocky cliff overlooking Saint John, the British-built Carleton Martello Tower dates from the War of 1812 and played a pivotal role in conflicts leading up to World War II. This historical landmark is now the perfect place to catch stunning, uninterrupted views of the city’s harbor and skyline.

From the Carleton Martello Tower, you’ll hop aboard the Reversing Falls Shuttle Boat. While cruising down the river you will not only be able to relax and really see the city’s sights, but you will get to be up-close-and-personal with the Reversing Falls Rapids.

Before completing your tour and heading back to your hotel or chosen drop-off location, you’ll have a quick visit to the Saint John Sign and Fort Howe National Historical Site. Make sure you have your camera ready because you will certainly want to capture some of the sights on film!
