An hour of fun

Kristen was our guide and she made the trip super fun and interesting. They hit the highlights of downtown, public gardens, Citadel and of course the splash into the harbor.

We had a fun filled informative tour of Halifax earlier this month and thoroughly enjoyed it. We toured the city and the harbor while listening to historical and interesting details.

Went with a family group of 5 people. We're from the UK & we're used to the amphibious craft in London which go on the river Thames so it was quite fun to zoom out into the sea for a change ! Anyone who doesn't like plunging into the sea in a bus shouldn't do this tour !!! The bus... More

Great tour of the city and nice way to see the harbour. Informative but bus moves quickly, no time for any pictures unless you are stopped at a light.

A neat way to see a bit of the city and the bay while being give some history. We ended up with a bit of a rowdy group but they were quite funny at times even causing the guide to break out laughing.

We took the Harbour Hopper for an hour's cruise on land and sea while in Halifax. Lots of fun, great guide and commentary. You get different perspectives for Halifax's downtown and harbor areas plus some interesting history.

This was a great way to see some of the sites of halifax. Like many of these attractions sometime is spent on land then splash into the harbor. It was fun, the guide Arielle was very knowledgable of the sites and history and interacted well with the passengers. It was about 90 minutes. The tour around the harbor was nice... More

Took my daughter and granddaughter who were visiting from Ontario on the Halifax Harbour Hopper. It cost me 87.74 Canadian for 2 adults and 1 child. Although the tour kind was pleasant and spoke clearly, most of the information was not appropriate for a young child. In fact, I think my 5 year old granddaughter was bored most of the... More

You will see from my reviews that I travel a lot but never rarely write reviews about tours or attractions, but today I felt I MUST. I normally take a tour bus when arriving at a new city to get the feel of the history and what is worth a visit, and it was not different when arrived at Halifax... More
