  • A lovely guided tour. Highly recommend it for any lover of history and historic mansions. Our guide, Phillip was wonderful, very knowledgeable, full of historic facts, and very witty. I encourage young and old to visit Dundurn castle. We love visiting it. Thank you
  • Very cool. Came here on family day, so it was a little busy and we had a wait of an hr or so for our tour but we spent the extra time viewing the museums. The gift shop here has some unique items that you wouldn't find at most Canadian gift shops. The tour guide was friendly, and knowledgeable.
