    Worse tour of our trip
    The was the worst tour of our vacation. First off the there were conflicting reports of people on the tour with different times to report so that started the tour 40 minutes late—bad move and should have been a sign. We specifically booked for the reviews of the tour guide Jonathan—we thought he was who we would get and we were under the impression it was a van tour. He emailed us numerous times to the point we were becoming friends and we were very excited about this tour. Well we get on a giant tour bus (not happy) and off we go. It’s a tour that’s to last 5 hours. The second stop we make is to a maple shop. We stop there a bus load of people with one employee and everyone need to use the restroom and wants coffee and souvenirs and one person is doing all of this (running late again besides the start time of 40 minutes). The tour guide is extremely boring, not engaging at all. The Peggy’s Cove stop was adequate but then we stop for lunch and the tour guide and bus driver have to wait tables. On the way back to the cruise terminal half of the bus is sleeping and not listening to the guide and we arrive back 90 minutes late — which is unacceptable. We had other plans which now are cancelled. When I emailed Jonathan Duru (general manager) questioning were we bumped from a private tour to a bus tour and complained; he did not answer the question. Now this is our experience if you like a bus tour where it takes 10 minutes for everyone to get off and then back on and a boring guide then this is for you.

    The Best Tour Guide in Halifax
    This was my third time putting a group together to tour Halifax Gardens, the Fort, the Titanic gravesite, Peggy's Cove, and wound up at Shaw's Landing for an incredible late lunch. Jonathan Duru is a master story teller, knows Halifax history, as well as the surrounding areas, and I consider his pricing to be very competitive, and about half of what a cruise ship wauld charge. I highly recommend Aberdeen Bus Tours and Jonathan Duru to anyone looking to know more about Halifax and the surrounding area.

    Unique tour to Fisherman's Cove
    We had a fantastic tour and enjoyed every moment. Jonathan is quite knowledgeable and an enjoyable person. His kindness is phenomenal. We had never been to the Cove and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Cove is an authentic fishing village with lots of shops, restaurants, and of course, fishermen. Would we go again next time we are in Halifax? For sure, especially with Jonathan

    We didn’t get to go to the site of the 1917 explosion, the gardens, and didn’t even stop at the citadel. The guide was really informative but it was over priced.

    Beautiful Lighthouse
    We arrived in Peggy's Cove around 8.30am for our breakfast. The Fisherman Breakfast served was fantastic - red beans, salty fish cakes. After breakfast and before bus loads arrived, we had panoramic views of the coast and the lighthouse. I felt rather surreal as we were there 1 day after Cyclone Lee landfall in Nova Scotia. The rustic charms of the fishing village brought me down memory lane.

    Fun, educational, and lots of laughs
    I just got back from a work trip to Halifax! There were 30 of us going, and we were looking for a fun sightseeing/team bonding tour. I stumbled upon Aberdeen, and I’m so happy I did! Jon, the tour guide, is great! He’s very responsive when planning, and he is a lot of fun during the tour. Everyone raved about the thought that went into where he decided to take us, and our trip wouldn’t have been the same without Jon. Please consider booking your tour with Aberdeen next time you’re in the Halifax area :)

    This is a great opportunity to see Nova Scotia beyond Halifax. Our driver Jonathan was very informative and helpful. The stops were well chosen including the historic, scenic and wineries. Poor weather intervened but this was a trip which I recommend highly.

    A must-do day time while in Halifax
    My daughter and I enjoyed this trip from start to end. Our guide, Jonathan, was incredible! We learned a lot about Nova Scotia, were given time to fully explore the three targeted stops and enjoyed extra stops along the way.

    Nice walk and scenary
    We drove to Peggy's cove from Halifax. And it's a lovely drive. The village itself is walkable and the tourist information center is really nice and informative. We got lots of great pictures here as it's very scenic. On the way to Peggy's cove, we stopped and ate at this place called Shaw's lobster shack. It was right on the water, and that was really good. Oh, and they say, "Piggy's " instead of Peggy's here. It's really cute.

    Fantastic Tour
    Jonathan was an amazing tour guide. He really made our tour and exploration of Halifax that more special. If we were to come back to visit we would 100% do another tour with him.

Lots to do, good restaurants, bars and, you can catch some maritime music if you wish. We had a guide for the first day, Paul McNeil, who was very knowledgeable in Halifax history. We took his 6 hour tour with our 15 year old grandson and he kept us all informed and interested. Paul McNeil, Halifax History Tours (902) 292-6780.

We booked our 3 hour tour of the Halifax and the surrounding area with Johnathan Duru of Aberdeen Tours and it was a highlight of our visit to the area. Johnathan was very knowledgeable about the area and had plenty of insight to add regarding the local history and culture. We even added a side trip to the Diwali Festival of Lights in Halifax which we had heard about and he agreed to take us there and we had a wonderful lunch at the event.
