ماذا ستفعل

Tour ends at Drummond Hill cemetary or
Table Rock via Winter Festival of Lights

Come and march to a different drum on this uniquely curated history walk...

straight onto the battlefield for a tongue-in-cheek exploration of this key War of 1812 site. We walk in the footsteps of campaign leaders and pioneer families caught in between.

We visit the men, women, and families displaced by this pivotal battle exploring the battlefield and piecing together a local's perspective meeting these larger-than-life early Niagara residents.

As we zig-zag the site we'll examine the war from multiple perspectives: merchants, industrialists, farmers, First Nations, British, American & more.

Themes:
The Bonapartes:It's their fault”
The Lundy's Lane NHS and Drummond Hill cemetery
Who lost: the First Nations and casualties
Industrial revolutions, slavery, war & rebellions
Why it all matters today & heroes of the past

During our walk please afford every respect due to each person's resting place when visiting the cemeteries and memorials; you would want the same respect held.

The discussion can be tweaked depending on participant knowledge and preference, i.e. sociological impact, military strategy, reported paranormal activity, etc.

* Safety concerns

- ONLY: One party / family per walk through Spring 2022.

Rob is a local writer, holiday homestay host, active historian, and competent cook -- who cut his teeth in family kitchens from Lithuania to Hong Kong; and classrooms from Brisbane to Ottawa.

Candice works in the finance industry by day, by night she is a fun-loving, tap dancer and songstress who does a mean barbecue when she isn't looking for new swimming spots and ahem "practicing" her mad tapping skills.

We are the children of immigrants who love hosting people, sharing from our common experiences—and, of course, making friends from all over the world.

So, please join Rob on a journey through time to the 19th century where you will meet Niagara's pioneer families and their journey from the battlefield through modern times.

Though I have been to Niagara many times, I have never visited the battle grounds or cemetery and I'm so glad I waited to do so on this tour! Rob has an exceptional knowledge of the area and exceeded our expectations as a guide - even extending the tour length to take us to some extra locations. I really appreciate the amount of preparation and detail that went into this tour and would highly recommend to any history buff and to those looking to do something a little bit different in Niagara!

Enlightening and entertaining! Very knowledgeable and had lots of information to share, not only about the history, but also of other things to do in the area.

This tour was amazing! Going into it I didn’t know what to expect but Rob excelled in explain things, ensured to keep it interactive and gave us a broad variety of history. Rob went above and beyond providing us extra information about things to do and local farm stands and went as far as researching a question my fiancé had from the tour and providing us that information. I would recommend this to anyone I know, history lovers or not.

I honestly didn’t know what to expect, but Rob surpassed my expectations and did a phenomenal job. I was very pleased with his knowledge and the information he shared. I would advise and encourage everyone to take this extraordinary tour. Thank you for being so awesome Rob. His wife is absolutely amazing as well 😊

Great walk through time on a crisp, sunny fall day. Just a couple of hours and a couple of hundred years of history and perspectives. Fantastic. So much information taken in and som much more I want to know. Fantastic!

My friend and I did this, hoping for something off the beaten path, so to speak when it comes to going to Niagara Falls. We decided to take this tour to learn and see what we could see....it turned out to be a wonderful experience that was fun, interesting, educational and eye opening. We got much more than we expected, and Robert was chock full of information and history, at the same time made a serious subject entertaining. We recommend this to anyone and will let our friends know if anyone is visiting Niagara Falls.
