This tour cannot be booked in advance, which is the only downside, as if there a lot of ships in port there is a chance you may not be able to get on the tour. The bus stop is located just a couple of blocks from the cruise pier, an easy level walk. The tour guide was brilliant and really... More

When our cruise ship docked into St. John we hadn't planned an excursion and figured we would just see what we found. On the way down the street towards town from the pier we found this door. Only $20 US. What a bargain! Harold our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Best value of our entire trip.

Rod was a wealth of knowledge and took us to many interesting places with great descriptions. The only thing that could have been a setback was the interesting trip to St. Martins and it's caves which he said was not part of the tour but we showed Rod the itinerary and he took the extra time to take us there...

I was in Saint John on a cruise ship for the day. I wanted to do something other than the regular cruise ship excursions and found this tour on Trip Advisor. From the dock you turned left and walked down a couple of blocks until right before you get to the King Street. The city bus was parked along the... More

What a magnificent old city. One of the oldest, in tacked coastal towns in Canada. If your in New Brunswick, and any where near St. John you should make time to take a City tour and explore the city. From it's past Atlantic port and fishing background to it's present day status its history is great. That along with its... More

For $25 each we were driven around Saint John up and down the hills by a wonderful woman who was a native of the area. What a character! We learned so much about the history of the area and architecture and she made it all such fun! Love this new company based out of a tiny old museum with wooden... More

Our group of 10 took the 2 hour tour while on a stop in Saint John on a RCL cruise. Pickup point is a short walk from the pier. Unlike the other tour bus companies, it is very low key with nobody hawking the tour. Unless you knew about the tour, it is easy to overlook as the bus is... More

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
