We know you like Kingston. Spend some time with us exploring why we are here and what made us.
Our main tour, Introduction to Kingston 101 is meant to give a compact, inexpensive, look at the past and present of Kingston. It will acquaint you with our beginnings, our fortifications, and the powerful influence of the refugees from the American Revolution -- their homes, their ideas and their influence on the structure of Canada. Costumed guides will present the fur trade, the loyalists, Sir John A. MacDonald, Market Square, City Hall and much more. Where to eat and where to shop will be indicated as well.
Tickets are $7 a person or $14 for a family and can be purchased at the Tourism Information Office, 209 Ontario Street, where the tour departs. Hours: Monday to Friday 1:30-2:15 or can be arranged in advance.
