Don't miss a chance to book Andy / Tattle Tours for your visit to Halifax. Knowledgeable about all things Halifax, Andy gave us an excellent tour that included a trip to Peggy's Cove. Andy has a Chrysler mini van that makes it a little tight for 6. Thanks Andy, we had a great day!

My husband and I had a date night out while our baby was cared for by my mom and this was definitely a great activity and something we've wanted to do for a while now! The tour was entertaining and very informative, we both learned a lot we never knew and we live in Halifax. We would highly recommend to... More

Andy Smith gave our party of 5 a good informative tour of Halifax. The weather did not cooperate but the tour was still very good. It's always a little nerve racking to get off the ship and hope your tour guide is there and we found this company right on top of things.

I cannot say enough about Tattle Tours! A group of five on a cruise had booked Andy for a tour of Halifax and Peggy's Cove. The tour was exactly what we wanted it to be. Andy's stories and information were entertaining and informative. He took us to places most of the cruise tours visit (and some they do not), and... More

We were fortunate enough to be able to join Andy's ghost walk on the Sunday night of the September long weekend. Andy's stories not only captured the "spiritual" side of Halifax but also provided a great deal of fact regarding the history of Halifax. We loved the way that he included the children on the tour in the storytelling but... More

My friend stumbled upon this historical walking tour which also includes tales of the ghosts that many people feel haunt this city. Andy who does the tour is an actor and was lots of fun. There must have been at least 35 people on the tour and it ran from 7:30-9:30 pm. The cost was only $10.00 and it was... More

Andy Smith was the attraction. He was our driver Tour guide for 5 hours. We took a short tour around Halifax,then out to Peggy's cove. We also stopped at some small quaint fishing villages. At the cemetery where so many victims of the Titanic were interred, it was Andy who made it interesting. We would recommend him to anyone looking... More

Andy Smith’s got stories and he’s got dramatic style, and he utilized both to take us on a spirited tour (pun intended) of old Halifax. Starting at the Citadel clock tower and ending at Alexander Keith’s brewery, Andy presented us with fascinating and (sometimes) ghoulish series of tales including everything from Halifax’s first murder to the burning of Washington during...

Our group of eight had a great day touring Halifax and Peggy's Cove. We had two cars because of our group size so Andy's good friend, Robert, guided the second car. We made numerous stops to see the waterfront, the Citadel, the cemetery burial site for many of the Titanic victims, the public gardens and then out to Peggy's Cove.... More
