Our group of 4 who took the 2-hour City Tour thoroughly enjoyed it. Our driver/guide Harold was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We got to see some of the variety of architecture and learn a little about the history of Saint John and the tour included enough time at the stops. The tour only runs on days when a cruise ship...

Arrived in St. John on a cruise. We did not pre-book any tours, but discovered that there was a city tour of two hours duration for the mere price of $20. Yes the bus was a city bus and looked like one. It was not a sleek and trendy tour bus. I must tell you that our driver and guide... More

Wonderful bus ride to Fundy Bay Caves and thru St. John's Canada. Our guide was Kelly Ann Laungly, a very pretty, knowledgeable Irish Lady. She was very thorough, fun and informed. Enjoyed our tour very much. She took us to really great places. Thank you Aquabella!!

As noted by other reviewers, this was a mere $20.00 per person, offered a good and seemingly nothing of note was missed during the trip What was sad... More

For $20PP this was the best value we found. Just turn left on Water St. upon exiting cruise terminal, a couple of blocks to Princess St. and wait for bus. With 2 ships in port on day we were there 3 tours were scheduled, 10:30, 11:30 and 1. The bus arrives about thirty minutes before departure, pay $20, pick seat... More

At $20, the City Tour is a great bargain compared to what the cruise ship excursions cost ($40-$50) for the same thing. And I can't imagine the one we took could have been any better. Well worth the money, and you get a local's perspective. It hits the highlights - Reversing Falls and City Market - as well as local... More

There aren't many options for tours in St John. I came across this tour on the Saint John Transit website and my wife and I decided to give it a try. We had a great time! Our tour bus driver (Grant) was extremely knowledgeable about the area. Grant took us through downtown St. John and explained many historically significant locations.... More

My boyfriend & I took a cruise to Saint John in October. This was our first time in Saint John. We had not booked a tour through the cruise, figuring we could find something to do on our own. We quickly discovered that Saint John did not have alot to offer. The reversing falls & the old city market are... More

We discovered that the City of Saint John offers, guided, one and two hour tours a very short walk from the ship. Be advised that this tour only runs from June through early October - not... More
