Add to Itinerary

Discover nearly 400 years of history in Canada’s oldest incorporated city and experience a unique blend of past and present in one of the friendliest cities that you’ll ever visit. You’ll be fascinated as your tour guide introduces you to personalities, places, and events that have made Saint John “the greatest little city in the east.”

Learn the history of the buildings along Prince William Street. Discover why King Street is so interesting. Visit Barbour’s General Store, an authentic 18th century general store. Swing by the King’s Square Bandstand to listen to the local talent or just take in the beauty of the square. Head over to Loyalist Burial Ground, the resting place of several of Saint John’s first British settlers.

Before heading back to the ship, take a tour of the majestic Imperial Theater and then stop to explore the sights and smells in the Old City Market. Chat with local folks as they buy fresh produce in an oldest continually operated market in Canada, built in 1876.
