This ride is a comprehensive tour of Halifax and all the major sites and a great bonus is when the Hopper splashes into the sea for a harbour tour. Also our guide was excellent entertaining and educational, certainly keeping the group of children onboard engaged.

This was only average. Although the information they gave on the tour was nice, it wasn't anything beyond what you would get in a tour book. The jokes were a bit cheesy, and the ride was so loud it was difficult to hear anything.

The harbour hopper is a big green amphibious vehicle that took us on a short tour of Halifax and the harbour. We booked it being as it is so unique and thought it would be fun and it was. The tour lasts 55 minutes and was a great way to see Halifax, although we felt that a few things were... More

We decided to do the Harbour Hopper since it would give us a tour of the city and the harbor. Both sections of the trip we're fun and very informative. The young woman who provided the narration was very polished, informative, funny, and interesting. She knew her stuff and her presentation was extremely well done. We know so much about... More

I have been on the Harbour Hopper twice and plan on going again this summer. The first time was with a group of co-workers getting together after work. The second time was with our Autism Youth Group, Both times we had a blast. The tour guide was very upbeat and friendly and taught us tidbits of Halifax that I didn't... More

This is a unique tour of Halifax. It was fun, interesting and perfect for a first time visitor. The Guide was friendly, knowledgable and easy to listen to. It showed you the highlights and then into the water for a great view of Halifax.

This was the tour of a lifetime in Halifax. Max was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and very funny. The 55 minutes went by fast but you learned a lot. Take this tour just for the fun of it -- it will teach you a lot about Halifax .

Max is out of control hilarious and knowledgeable. I'm still giggling at some of his jokes. What a great human.

The narrator of this tour was great. She had the perfect personality for the job. Got to see many historic spots in Halifax in a short period of time. Then got to cruise along the shoreline for a different perspective of the city. Highly recommend the tour.

Our tour was excellent. First we went out on the water for 30 minutes and had a great view of the bridges and the city skyline. Our guide Kirby was very knowledgeable and told us stories the whole time. The land part of the tour was also 30 minutes. We saw a great deal of the city and learned a... More
