I picked up some brochures at the airport and one of them was this local tour about stories and songs of old St. John's and sounded very interesting.
We called and made a reservation and met the gals doing the tour the next day. Our guides, Carmen Rowse and Sheilah Roberts were very charming and versed in the lore of St. John's. We all gathered at the Fairmont Newfoundland Hotel on a beautiful stunning sunny day. We stopped at many historical sights along the way and just about every other site, the women would sing. We strolled through parks, Cathedrals and churches. We heard them sing of pirates and lost loves. It was a moderate stroll throught the city of St. John's, up and down hills and just right for walking. Bring a warm jacket or sweater and possibly an umbrella for the occassional rain showers. As the tour goes along, depending on the weather, you may be peeling it off your sweater by the end. The tour lasted about 1 and 1/2 hours and the cost of this tour...$10.00CAD!! This is a great way to see the city and listen and enjoy the music of St. John's.
