Old Fort Erie is a must-see if you are at all interested in Canadian history. The guided tour was excellent with lots of information on the importance of the site and the events that happened there. The tour struck the right balance with relevant information without straying into too much detail. The musket firing was good to see and have explained. The visitors centre has more details in its displays if you need to delve further.

Had an amazing tour and top-notch, knowledgeable, informative history lesson on the dates/times/events that evolved around this fort, the people involved and this area. Justin was an amazing guide and answered so many questions. Extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Reed was also very helpful. Would highly recommend this tour to any locals [I am one] and anyone traveling to this area. Thanks to Justin for providing me with a much greater appreciation of 'Fort Erie'!

We took the tour on a nice fall day and our tour guide Justin led us on not only a tour through the fort but a tour through Canadian and American history. To see and feel what it was like in the early 1800's was truly an eye opener. We have been on many tours through forts and castles but Justin told us of all the things in normal everyday life, of that period, that we would not think of. He answered all our questions as if he had lived in that time period.. No question left him stumped. One of the best historical tours we have ever been on.

The costumed guides do an excellent job of bringing the past to life. Learning about the battle and the life of the soldiers made this an entertaining and fact filled history lesson for all ages. I especially enjoyed seeing the command/living quarters which have been recreated to show how the officers and the common soldiers lived. We are glad we made the stop and recommend it to others.
