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.
