I chose Halifax Tour Guys for a 5 hour tour of Halifax and Peggy's Cove while on a Royal Caribbean cruise, and I highly recommend them in all manner. The booking, follow up instructions, and payment were friendly, helpful, and smooth. Our tour guide, Dave, was knowledgeable, informative, funny, and very accommodating to take us exactly where we wanted to go, and to make great recommendations on our various stops.He was particularly interesting as he explained the 1917 explosion in Halifax Harbor, and took us to see part of the anchor that was blown almost 3 miles from the explosion. His recommendation of Acadia Maple Products was a great stop, and he delivered us right to the best drop off point for breathtaking Peggy's Cove even though the traffic was massive.However, his suggestion to visit Shaw's Landing Restaurant in the beautiful fishing village of French Village was perfect. The view from the deck of the restaurant was everything I had hoped to see as examples of the little fishing villages of New England and Canada, and the food was excellent. The cost of the tour was very good, and far below the "Cattle Call" bus excursions offered by the cruise lines. If you want an informative fun tour of Halifax, book the Tour Guys.
Thank you for the review Paul! Much appreciated !!
We only had a few days in Halifax and decided to do a tour. This was so simple to set up and our tour was great! Lem was extremely knowledgeable about Halifax and showed/told us all sort of interesting facts. We did the Halifax/Peggy Cove tour and it worked out great. We even got to stop and see Dave and his lobsters at Ryer Lobsters which I think was a highlight for my daughter! Highly recommended.
I coordinated with Lem via email to set up the cruise excursion. His responses were prompt and he answered my questions. He explained how we would meet our drivers (we needed two) and offered some tour ideas. My group had two toddlers so I was excited to learn he could provide car seats as well. Cost was affordable and cheaper than cruise excursions. The company was reliable and at the cruise terminal when we arrived. I would have traveled with this company regardless because of the flexibility. Not being tied to the cruise tour busses enables you to stop and go as you please and go to locations the busses can't reach. The Halifax tour guides were professional, knowledgeable, and their cars were clean. They were also safe drivers. I highly recommend.
