Niagara Bound Tours offers customized, early Canadian black-history attraction tours (Underground Railroad-era), in the Niagara, Ont., region.

Providing insight into the migration of Afro-Americans as they escaped slavery in the mid-19th century and settled in southern Ontario, tours provide historical perspective, fleshed out with local stories.

Tours feature a step-on guide who is a direct descendant of a fugitive slave from Kentucky, who came to Canada in 1850 and settled in the Niagara Region. In addition, tours capture the essence of what was faced by those forced to flee the United States.

Ideal for corporate groups, team-building or incentive groups organized by meeting and event planners, Niagara Bound tours can accommodate up to 55 and can also be customized.

Lunches, dinners or bagged lunches may also be included.
