It's nice to have a tour guide to lead you around a city instead of getting directions from a hotel concierge whose only point of reference is "the docks." Start out on the right foot with this Groupon.

George Street Spirit Tours

George Street features two solid blocks of nothing but bars, pubs, and restaurants––a publicly renowned concentration of food and drink. Not as many people, though, know the story of how the street came to be. That's where George Street Spirit Tours' guides come in. They lead excursions down the famed avenue, unveiling the history of the street in general, along with some if its more notable establishments. After certain tours, they'll take groups into one of the pubs to sample the fish 'n' chips, or into the greater expanse of St. John's to learn about Newfoundland.

They even offer the opportunity to become an honorary Newfoundlander by participating in ceremonial Screech drinking. Screech is an intensely potent rum, which, when coupled with a recited oath, a kiss from a cod fish, a certificate, and souvenir shot glass, transforms any visitor into a local, at least until that fickle codfish takes up with yet another tourist.
