My wife and I had a great time with Rod in Saint John. He knows the city, it's history, and it's stories very well and he likes to share them. Rod knows his city from the fog shrouded Reversing Rapids to the Police Museum (really nice) to the sunny downtown streets. Rod's introduction to Saint John was a real help in exploring the city on our own.
