Reply to @prattsoplenty: Oops; I didn't fully research that last bit. The Gulfstream in KHOU was a G-III, not this G-II. The G-III did have the XA-FOU registration at one point before being sold and registered in the US as N85VT. The G-II became N559LC.
Saw this photo on my Twitter feed: http://s845.beta.photobucket.com/user/bizjets101/media/XA-FOU1_zps081490e0.jpg.html and looked further into this incident. Turns out the Mexican G-II (XA-FOU) used the race track for a fuel emergency landing after running out of options at Shannon due to fog. There was no damage so the insurance company built a runway (the asphalt seen running east-west on either side of the more recently built winner's circle) and the aircraft departed safely. Since the flight was a transatlantic flight, the International Airport tag fits. Sadly, the Gulfstream was destroyed in 2004 trying to land at KHOU, in the fog.

If you are flying on Air Canada, they use Terminal 1. If you are flying on Westjet, they use Terminal 3. Other airline's information can be found under the Pilot Info tab and/or visiting the airport webpage.
This field is privately owned and does not have a commercial operator who offers sight seeing tours. Closest airports that might have someone that offers sight seeing flights are Stirling, Belleville, Tyendinaga Mohawk (Deseronto) or Kingston. Closer to your location (Bobcaygeon), you might have luck at the Lindsay or Peterborough Airports. And its never too late to finish your licence.
