If you are into hiking, it was fabulous. There is a trail out of Quidi Vidi (from the port, follow the trail by the lake which is pretty and well paved) that goes up the side of the mountain past North Head Trail Lookout and over to Signal Hill. From there, follow the North Head trail down - but be aware that there were portions that were tricky - down along the coast. The views are spectacular. If you don't want to hike all of that, there is a metro bus called Link which costs $10 for several tourist stops (it's not like a hop-on/hop-off bus but it will get you there). But definitely go to the top of Signal Hill. I also liked the Geo museum. It's not large but it's very educational for young and old and explains things well in everyday language. Read Less

Docked at Pier 10. Most shops and pubs are within the first three blocks away from the ship. We walked to the Quidi Vidi Brewery. It was a long 45 minutes walk through the suburbs. Nice to have a beer made with water from an iceberg, but not sure it was worth the time to get there. Signal Hill was encased in low clouds all day so there was no point in climbing up for a view. One odd thing was pushing our clocks back 30 minutes to match the local time zone, instead of the usual hour. Read Less

Walked the trail to Signal Hill which clings to the harbor side entrance like I did 10 years ago. Why was it so much harder? Ten years is why. Went to the Rooms Museum as well as walking the central city. I like St John's

Had great weather so hiked up to Cabot’s tower and then onto Qidi Vidi where we had a beer from the brewery. We hiked back. Hikers paradise. Town super cute with colourful buildings. Loads of volunteers met the ship which was awesome.

Got off the ship and walked through the town. Found a great pub and had some fantastic fish and chips.....not your standard fish, but fresh and a huge portion!

Relaxing old city with many historic sights,. We walked all over and enjoyed most, but arrived back at ship wet and tired because of weather and steep hilly roads
