This port was a lot bigger than I thought it would be but it is a nice area. The info desk gave us a walking map and we walked to the reversing rapids. It's a must see. There are tours that go there but we like to walk. The walkway followed the shore line. They told us it was a 45 minute walk but it took us about 25-30. The market in town was not that great. We did our shopping at the market at the cruise port. Prices were better. We wanted to buy syrup but they only had one in the size we wanted. Bought it for $18 and then bought another in Halifax - same size - for less than $12. Also bought maple cookies there for $7 and bought same cookies in Halifax for $5.

I live here, so if I were to suggests places to see, I would suggest rockwood park, Irving nature park, reversing falls, take a drive out to grand bay-Westfield and visit crystal beach, st. martins visit the caves, St. Andrews visit the street by the water or go whale watching, also the Algonquin hotel has lots of history, visit the shops on king street uptown (walking distance from port), schedule a tour of moosehead breweries (yes they do those), this is a city of history, take it all in and learn !

No excursions. Just walked around the city a bit. Learned of the fire that destroyed much of the city many years ago. Had to go to Tim Hortons while in Canada, right? ;)

Don't purchase excursions through the cruise line. Depart the ship, turn left and head down the road about 4 blocks. The city bus company leads a guided tour that's 2 hours long and hits all the tourist spots. They also give you time to get off at a couple places. $20 well spent!

Saint John is a city that is full of History. My recommendations though would be to either take in Hopewell Rocks or the Museum. "The Rocks" are magnificiant and very interesting and the Museum, as for Katrina to be your tour guide. She is fantastic with people.

Saint John is a really small town. Our shore excursion lasted about 4 1/2 hours and we had plenty of time afterwards to grab a snack and shop.
