This was our 2nd time doing the Harbour Hopper Tour in Halifax. It's lots of fun but is also very interesting and you learn a lot about the history of Halifax. It's a perfect way to see the sites when you have only an hour or if you have small children who get fidgity. The only downside is that it... More

We took the Harbour Hopper tour in July . It's a fun little excursion that is about an hour long. The cost was $20.00 / person. The tour guide explained points of interest along the way. It took us up to the Citadel , which was great because it gave you a beautiful view of the surrounding area and Harbour.... More

It was our first ever Harbour Hopper tour. We enjoyed the 1 hour long introduction to Halifax and learning about the harbour area. It was neat to go from a land vehicle to a boat. Very unique! We did get the family rate, but I still think it's pricey. My 8 year old enjoyed the vehicle itself, but I'm not... More

Did this tour the day before we left Halifax - big mistake, should have done it the day we arrived! It was so informative that I really wished we had done it earlier! It's a great tour around the downtown, great stories and our guide was so entertaining. The ride in the harbour was beautiful. A really great tourist attraction... More

This was a great overview of Halifax. Make arrangements to go on the Harbour Hopper as one of your first activities, then you'll know what else you want to do while in town. Our guide, Max, was entertaining and lively. My son loved the vehicle itself, especially that it could just drive into the water.

We took this tour with our 8 month old and 2 year old and had a great time. Great overview of the city and the views from top of the Citadel are awesome! Have your camera ready and sit at the back for the best views. Strollers have to be kept at the ticket store and can't be brought aboard.... More

Excellent tour guide, Max. He was a 2nd yr history major. He was knowledgeable but made the tour fun & interesting. Enjoyed that it was both a land & water tour!

If you are visiting Halifax downtown area looking for a fun tour of the city and the water. This is the tour to take. My family and friends went on this tour today and it was great. I have never had so much fun on a tour in all my travels. The tour guide and driver was very friendly, entertaining,... More

Really enjoyed the amphibious truck that took us around Halifax and then around the harbor. The driver/captain was excellent and very careful. Our guide, however, was very loud, over-stimulated, and talked non-stop, mostly prattle and dribbly jokes with a few historical facts thrown in from time to time to support the claim the tour was educational. By the end of... More
