Au programme

Put on a pair of steampunk glasses because we're going on a journey through time starting with a sunrise over the falls (using proper social distancing). We begin by sharing a common human experience: the meeting of the dawn and observing the natural cycles overlooking the powerful, rushing sounds, and beauty of Niagara Falls.

At this juncture, some of us take photos, others vlog, a few meditate, and most just soak in the memory. Even on days when there are no planned walks, my family and I often stroll down to ground ourselves and start-anew.

Note: although it is easy to take a good picture here, we have a few preferred spots depending on the month of your visit (since the sun rises at different points) and the current weather.

Thereafter, we engage in a brief history walk'n'chat; sharing tales of Niagara's pioneers and their hijinks en route to uncovering what has been hidden from view by time. It will give visitors old and new insight into how this place developed into its current mini-Vegas-like state.

Themes covered:

Life in a frontier town: Wars and Rebels
The Hangover: Victorian edition (immigrants, slaves, & pioneers)
Development of the industry & tourism
Tightropes-to-Tesla & local heroes
Crazy local facts: from stunts to hemp plantations to accidents

* NOTE: YOU SHOULD WALK to the starting point! I do not recommend trying to park nearby as it is costly.

Rob is a language instructor, active amateur historian & competent cook -- who cut his teeth in family kitchens from Lithuania to Hong Kong; and workplaces 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 yodeling 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. We just try to give back what hospitality, knowledge, and kindness we have been afforded by others while traveling.

So, please join Rob for an early, epic sunrise and walk through time where you will meet Niagara's pioneer families and their journey through tales of hijinks, war, and love.

Le lieu

Starting at the cusp of the waterfall at dawn we continue onward to the Victorian Era -- along the way discovering how local loyalists, first nations, enterprising Americans, First Nations & some rabble-rousers built the Falls we love today.

IMPORTANT PARKING INFO (2nd reminder): Parking beside ANY major tourist spots worldwide is expensive, and the same is true here. We HIGHLY recommend leaving your horseless carriage behind!

Met with Robert with our tour - because it was a Monday morning, it was just me and my friend, so it was a wonderful private tour! We left with a thirst for more knowledge. Prior to meeting, you can choose if you'd like to learn more history, or have more of a scenic/photo-taking experience. We chose 50/50. It's up to you!

Our guide Robert was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about everything Niagara Falls. He was always at the service of our group, even a photographer. Robert was also very nice and helpful. The program was excellent and give different choices to capture your interest in the topic around Niagara Falls. The route taken and the points of interest we were shown were more than we expected. Everything cooperated including the weather and wildlife. I hope to do it again in the future to learn more about this magical place.

Rob went above and beyond to ensure that we had a special Niagara experience. Weather and other events required us to keep in contact and remain flexible. In the end, Rob hosted us for a special brunch at his home instead of the walk, complete with fresh garden tomatoes and laptop presentation. We felt very welcomed. Rob really cares about the topic and has a wealth of knowledge about the area and related topics. We laughed a lot and and got a new perspective on Niagara. If you enjoy the drama of smuggling, families at war with each other, and the building of tourist empires then this is the experience for you.

Rob’s tour was awesome. It was a very informative and illuminating experience providing an extensive background on the history of Niagara Falls and surrounding areas. We learned a lot about an area that we would not have otherwise seen as tourists.

This was a unique tour of a less known Niagara Falls with a insight into the founding families and what made the town unique and why it became what it is.
