In one sense, Fort George is a typical reconstructed early19th century fort. But it's a notch above most of those I've seen. The scenery in the beautiful countryside along the Niagara River is spectacular, and the tour guides and demonstrators are excellent. Be sure to...More

Been on tours here many times both while in school and after. Always interesting and informative, whether you're on one of their typical daytime tours or their Fall Ghost Tours. Would definitely recommend checking this place out when you have the chance.

Went for a quick visit. Volunteers were very friendly and kept in character. Demonstratations were neat and we very much enjoyed Sort of small for the price but the history was neat

The history of this place is fascinating and well presented; it is well worth a visit. The actors/historians in costume really added to the experience.

Having said that, I enjoyed the quick tour and demonstration that's included with admission. I learned something new about the Niagara area and Canadian history.
