What you can expect

Head to historic St. Jacobs on your very own private and customisable tour of this Mennonite river village. Whether you want to shop for traditional wares, sightsee amongst the old stone buildings, or explore the outdoors, your knowledgeable guide can help you craft the perfect day trip to this quaint and scenic area.

Your guide meets you at your Toronto hotel and gets you on your way. Once you reach the charming town, the day is yours to shape the way you want. Maybe you’d prefer a shopping outing to the town’s farmers’ market, flea market, and various shops, where you can find everything from local crafts and gifts to clothing and jewellery. Or, you can check out the Mennonite centre for photos, exhibits, and artefacts that tell the storey of the group’s history, faith, and lifestyle, including details about the Old Order, whose buggies are still active in the region.

St. Jacobs also offers the St. Jacobs & Aberfoyle Model Railway, an extremely detailed display showing Ontario during the 1950s. The hand-built model shows the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways—including lighted passenger cars with fun interior details—operating amongst re-creations of urban terminals, suburban stations, and rural depots. Or, take a walk along part of the Trans Canada Trail, also known as The Great Trail—the world’s longest network of recreational trails. After you’ve had your ideal St. Jacobs outing, your guide takes you back to your Toronto hotel.
