My wife and I spent an absolutely amazing day with Lem Smith on October 7, 2019. He picked us up at the cruise terminal and off we went. We had some places we knew we wanted to see but told Lem to take us to other places we shouldn’t miss. His knowledge of the area was amazing. It was like an having the author of a local history book telling us the story of the area. I highly recommend Halifax Tour Guys. Well worth the price we paid for the 9 hours we spent with Lem.read more
We booked 3 6-passenger vans (@325CAN/ea) on 10/10/2019. Upon arriving at the meeting spot, seems the guy representing the tour company was not ready with the vans. He started to negotiate with 3 separate taxi drivers and took additional 20 minutes to finally decide which vans are for us. In the meantime, we all stood in the cold wind.
The driver of my van was Andy from Ethiopia. After 21 years in Halifax, he still has very heavy accent and I barely understand his English. He is a nice person, but definitely not a tour guide. Basically, we had a driver and we made it back to the ship on time and safely.
Not a normal private tour booking experience.read more
Our tour guide was Doug and he was quite entertaining with his commentary. We started with a pretty thorough tour of uptown and downtown Halifax. Showing mainy of the sites along the way. He had many stories to tell and he was not fixed on just dates and facts, but rather stories about the town and some of its residence. He then headed towards Peggy's cove, stopping twice along the way. Peggy's Cove was picture perfect, what can I say. Perhaps the most photographed lighthouse in the world, and it was a great day. Doug hit a few more epots when we got bwck to Halifax. We had a private tour in a family van for my family, 360 for 6 hour tour. Hard to bet that price.read more
