Farm to Picnic Table Experience with Local Guide in Newfoundland

By George’s Tours
Deneen will take you on a one of kind up close and personal tour, introducing you to her favourite family farm on the Killick Coast.  Taking in the beauty of several coastal beaches significant to the farming and fishing industry here for centuries. Once at the farm, Deneen guides you on a tour taking in the beautiful landscapes from the boreal forests to the ocean views. Over a hundred animals roam the land and fields flourish with delicious organic food. Lunch, prepared by Anita, the mother of the farm, will nourish you with a meal that promises to be, in her words “OMG satisfying!” Your final stop before heading back to St. John’s consists of a short hike to one of Deneen’s favourite lookouts on the Killick Coast that will leave you wanting more! George’s Tours seeks to share the famous Newfoundland spirit of hospitality with you and to show you what attracted a "Come From Away" to uproot his urban, mainland life and to resettle here, with born and raised Newfoundlander Deneen.

          Avoid like the plague
          I booked this tour over 4 months ago and paid over $600 for it. At 5:30pm, local time the day before the trip was to start at 10AM, (16.5 hours) George sent me an email stating he was cancelling the tour for the next day. I sent him several phone messages asking what happened. He stated he had oversold the reservation and that I should understand “these things happen" He said he had contacted me over several days, but my phone number, my text message and my email had NO messages before 5:30 PM on the day prior to the tour. He offered to let us reschedule the same tour at 3PM. But since it is advertised as a 4-5 hour tour, and our boat was leaving port at 7:30PM, I declined. I did not feel that someone who took a reservation and the fee 4 months ago and then cancelled at the last minute could be trusted or believed. How, over a 4 month period, can you not be overbooked and yet 16 hours before the tour you say you are. I am guessing he received a tour request from a larger group that day before the tour and decided he could dump us for a larger fee. I would NOT recommend using such a shady tour operator, because if you do you may very well be hung out to dry, like he did to us.

          A Must Tour!
          We took this tour so we could sit back and enjoy the sights! It is a perfect way to see St John’s and George is an amazing, congenial guide. He is loaded with knowledge, kept it interesting, and was entertaining. The sights we saw are: Blackhead Village, Cape Spear, Maddox Cove, Petty Harbor, Bell Island, Conception Bay, St Phillips, Portugal Cove with lunch at By the Beach, Quidi Vidi, and Signal Hill. The fish and chips were absolutely the best we have ever had; the fish (cod) batter is light and crisp. Enjoy!

          We’ve done a lot of touring around the world and can honestly say that this was one of the best. George showed us the sites around St. John’s while giving a real sense of the personality of Newfoundland and its people through stories, both humorous and heart-warming. We didn’t want the tour to end.

          A plus tour!
          This was a fun tour! George picked us up at our hotel and it was pure entertainment from the get go. The van was comfortable, small group of just six people and overall pleasant, informative, and a great lunch too! George the tour guide owner knows so much about the area and shared very interesting information. This is great tour!

          With George’s help we experienced the area without really seeing it.
          George could not have provided a more entertaining tour! He thought of everything possible to make our day an enjoyable one. Despite dense fog, rain, wind and a complete of sunshine he made this St John’s and area tour shine. His knowledge of the area and experiences with local celebrities made of a terrific time. The fish and chip luncheon was very good! Great service from pick up to drop off. Highly recommended 😁

          Best tour of St. John’s
          We have been on several local tours in many countries and George’s is hands down the best. We just spent the day (almost 6 hours) with George and his lovely partner Deneen on a tour of all the must see attractions in and around St. John’s, Newfoundland, including a delicious lunch of fish and chips (included) at By the Beach restaurant. A truly personable, knowledgeable and engaging couple will keep you both entertained and informed during the tour. If you are planning a trip to St. John’s you have to book this tour. Book directly through for the best deal.

          Fantastic tour - very highly recommended!
          We found George’s tour via TripAdvisor and we are so glad we did because we truly had a fantastic day with him. We were promptly picked up at our hotel and were seated in a spacious van for our tour. We learned so much about St. John’s and were so fortunate that George graced us with an almost 6 hrs. tour! It is readily apparent that he is passionate about showing off the history and beauty of St. John’s and his narrative is infused with energy and humour. We had a 5-year-old and 3-year-old on our tour as well and they had a great time with no complaints. Lunch at By The Beach was perhaps one of the best fish & chips we ever had - huge portions of super lightly battered flaky codfish with sides of dressing and gravy and refreshing pineapple crush. We highly recommend George’s tour, you will walk away armed with so much knowledge, it is literally a crash course of all the St. John’s must-sees!

          Exceptional tour with a wonderful host
          What a great day we had with our host George. Despite having a bad weather day we learned so much about this great province. The history and incredible sites that we visited made the 4 plus hours go by too quickly. Get George to tell you about his theatrical experience. What a diverse and diverse life he has led. Highly recommend this tour.

          Wonderful day,
          We enjoyed every minute of our day. From the moment we were picked up, we were enjoying ourselves. George made a rainy, blustery day fun. We didn’t get to see the stunning St. John’s scenery, but we learned about the area, and life on the island. George’s love for the area is contagious. We had a great lunch of some of the best fish and chips, tried pineapple soda, and listened to the rolling rocks on the beach.

          What an Opportunity! This is a Must!
          Our friends chose George and we lucked out to be a part of the 4 hour party! George knows St Johns like the back of his hand. While driving around and stopping at notable haunts we delighted in George's own intriguing personal history as well as learning about St Johns. Don't miss this fun and informative tour. As someone not from these parts, I learned so much and felt completely comfortable and safe! We had a lovely group of 6 including George and it was just perfect! Thank you so much for brining the sunshine today George! Hope our paths cross again!

          Come From Away - a tour you won’t want to miss!
          First time visit to Nfld. So glad we booked a tour with George. He was accommodating, knowledgeable and very interactive. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to fall in love with the St. John’s area. It’s obvious that George truly loves Nfld and wants to share the beauty of this breathtaking island.

        Deneen showed me all her favourite spots along the Killick Coast. Beaches, small towns, nature, waterfall and more. As a local Deneen told me a lot about the Newfoundland fishing industry, the locals and most of all about the boreal forest. And its special plants, trees and so on.
        We had a very nice picknick with a delicious lunch on an organic farm.
        For me it was just the right trip to learn more about the Newfoundland landscape, nature, places and people. I really enjoyed it!
