“Patrick was a fantastic tour guide! He was friendly, insightful, and brought us into the nooks and crannies of St. John’s that we would never have found ourselves. And the tasty treat was delicious!” - Aaron, Calgary AB
Three Tours to Choose From
Winding down Gower Street to Water Street, “Townie Streets” shares as many stories as you’re willing to hear! We’ll take you past our pastel houses, churches, our halls, and our shops. We’ll weave stories and facts as we go with plenty of photo ops along the way.
Approx 60 minutes. Pick up at Postmaster’s House B&B, ends at Yellowbelly corner. This tour is downhill, and does involve stairs. $35pp
There is an option to be Screeched In at Christian’s Pub for an additional $32.50, based on availability. This is THE spot to be screeched in and become an honourary Newfoundlander!
All Around the Circle
Winding down Gower Street to Harbour Drive and back, we’ll take in as many sights as we’re able with a tasty surprise along the way. You’ll hear stories of the past, present, and future of our great city.

The Big Climb
Beginning in town, this tour will take you through the Outer Battery to the top of Signal Hill. Stories of fishing, pirates, and close calls, this is one of the best walks in the city, followed by one of the best hikes in the province. Be prepared to “stuff your eyes with wonder”. While Ray Bradbury wasn’t speaking of our beautiful province specifically, he may as well have been!

About Your Guide
After visiting St. John’s for the first time in 2016, it became a goal of Patrick’s to move his family from Coast to Coast. The sea air and the stories had him hooked from the time he arrived.
Working in the travel industry for 17 years has afforded Patrick the luxury to travel around the world. Most recently, he’s had the honour of serving on the Board of Directors with the Newfoundland & Labrador Heritage Trust.
His passion for history and sharing the stories of the city make him an enthusiastic guide around town.
