“Halifax and Peggy's Cove ++”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

We had taken the Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas out of Boston on a 7-day New England-Canada cruise (Oct 2013).

HALIFAX - 10/18: We had a great guide for a look at the city, and trip to Peggy's Cove. Mr. Al DesLaurier met us at the terminal, and six of us fit fine in his van. We toured the historical spots in the city, hit the sugar shack (Acadian Maple Products) for a small tour/tasting and buying frenzy, then to the Titanic Grave Sites, where Al explained the who and the why of Titanic sinking and the relationship to Nova Scotia.

We then stopped in Indian Harbor at Ryer's to order 2lb lobsters each for lunch, and while Ryer's prepared them Al took us to a fishing shack for an up-close and personal visit with his friend Peter Dodge, then we were off to Peggy's Cove. Terrific! Then back to Ryer's picnic tables to eat some lazy-man lobsters (all broken down for us by Mr. Ryer and Al). Al was very engaging and personal. As a native Nova Scotian, we were delighted to hear Al talk about his upbringing in NS - just the kind of cultural background that you can't get from the big bus outfits. In fact, this was yet another plus - Al managed to keep us ahead of the buses at our stops - no small feat.

On our return to the ship, Al offered us the option of visiting The Boardwalk in town, and take a easy walk back to ship (and wear off the lobster), or he'd happily take us back directly to the ship. Outstanding guide, and HELLUVA human being!

“Great day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We pre-booked a private tour on line for the day our cruise ship was in port. Lucinda was so helpful with suggestions of places to visit in Halifax. We decided on visiting the historic area and drive out to Peggy's Cove. We (there was four of us) loved every minute of our tour with Al. He took us all around, we stopped at the Maple Syrup Outlet, which was really nice and lobster at Ryer's (which was incredible) ! Our day was wonderful and would highly recommend them!

“The Highlight of Our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We had the pleasure of engaging the Halifax Tour Guys for a 4 hour tour of Halifax and Peggy's Cove. There were four of us and our incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating guide. This was so much better than booking a tour using the ship's arrangements, mostly because we could be flexible and go at our own pace and time. Absolutely the highlight of the trip to Canada! Five stars to this group!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Our group of 4 were totally happy with everything about our 4 hour tour with Al. It was so much better than taking a big bus tour with 50 other people and the price per person was even less. He gives you a choice of what there is to see and you pick what you want. Definitely see Peggys Cove and have a 2 lb lobster cooked for you!

“sightseeing tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

we booked it from Germany via Internet. While leaving the cruise ship driver was already waiting with a sign. Nice tour showing Halifax city, Peggy´s cove and Titanic memorial. Driver has a lot of interesting stories to tell and is taking care about the wishes of the guests.
You have to pay after the tour. no prepayments necessary. this is abolutely fantastic.

Absolutely to recommend
