        Wonderful tour of Halifax!!
        Paul McNeil was a wonderful tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and could answer varied questions about Halifax and Canada. He also took us around the scenic route rather than the highways.

        Great tour of the highlights of Halifax
        What an amazing tour and experience! Paul is thoughtful, considerate, and knowledgeable. He LOVES his city and its history and conveys it so that you leave loving his city as much as he. As he took us around he explained what we were seeing. Enough time to explore at our stops. And we stayed away from the crowds. Worth ever penny! Book early as he offers small group tours.

        Paul was an excellent guide, most of the group was forced to cancel but he followed through with our tour. His professional demeanor and knowledge was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Halifax Titanic Historical Tours to others. The Hopkins North Carolina

        Good if you don't have your own transport.
        This bus trip was in a comfortable vehicle and there were entertaining stories told along the way. If you don't have your own transport it's a great way to see something outside of Halifax city, but I would venture to say that, for the cost, you'd be better off hiring a rental car for the whole day as you would see more and fill in a whole day, not just half. But again, if you're not a confident driver it's a good option.

        Wonderful tour of the South Shore of Nova Scotia
        We recently did the Half day tour of Nova Scotia's south shore with Paul McNeil. It was outstanding! Paul has a lot of knowledge about the areas, and kept the tour very interesting. He was punctual and professional. Highly recommend this tour with Paul, so enjoyable!

        Picturesque tour!
        We enjoyed visiting picturesque Lunenburg and Peggy’s Cove. Mahone Bay was beautiful but we didn’t spend time there—pretty much drove through after stopping about 10 minutes. Just realize that a lot of the time is spent riding to these places. Paul did make the drive interesting. But if you want to see the beautiful countryside of Nova Scotia, it’s a good tour!

        It was really good and I took alots of photos.
        Paul was a very welcoming and courteous tour guide. He kept us entertained and made sure we had reasonable amount of time to view all the sights. The fact that we went to see Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Peggy’s Cove all in one day saved me the headache of trying to get to these places myself. It wouldn’t have been the same experience and there was a chance I would’ve missed out on the history and certain views of each place.

        Excellent tour to Peggy’s Cove, Lunenberg & Mahone Bay
        Excellent tour with Paul. Beautiful scenery at Peggy’s Cove, drive along coast to Lunenberg, and Mahone Bay. Nice to have a small group & Paul’s extra touches, such as cold water & videos on the large screen to learn more about the area. Would love to take another tour with Paul in the future.

        Best tour of Halifax, Nova Scotia
        Paul was a fantastic guide. We were fortunate to have a bright sunny day as we traveled around Halifax and out to Peggy’s Cove with a famous lighthouse. The van was comfortable and Paul provided us with interesting videos about Titanic as well as a video about the explosion in Halifax harbor in 1917. He was a wealth of knowledge about Nova Scotia and answered our questions easily. I hope to go back to Halifax and take his historical tour. I can’t recommend him highly enough. Best

        Fabulous Nova Scotia
        The tour went to Peggy's Cove and Lunenberg, a resorty harbor town, home of the Bluenose racing schooner. Our driver and guide, Paul, did an exceptional job fleshing out these locations in terms of cultural, historic, and and social significance. Anecdotes, advice for photo shots, videos in the van were very helpful. He was easy to hear and listen to. Paul has a schedule and he sticks to it! It flows well. We got to Peggy's Cove before the bus loads of other tourists arrived allowing for photos of the lighthouse by itself. Luneneberg was a great place to have lunch and walk around afterwards. I love a tour-guide like Paul because I learn so much about the area. He also discussed in detail the Halifax Explosion and we learned some new ideas about the Titanic sinking. I would highly recommend any of Paul's tours to augment your time in NS and Halifax.

        Nova Scotia South Shore Tour
        Paul McNeil was very thorough, professional, and punctual. The communication in setting up the tour was excellent. The van was comfortable. We enjoyed a complimentary water bottle and enjoyed pictures and documentaries during our long rides in the van. We drove 90 minutes one way to Lunenburg, where we had 90 minutes for lunch and a brief time to walk around the pier and to shop. We ate at the Shaker of Salt Deli and really enjoyed it. We drove through Mahone Bay and stopped briefly to snap pictures of some churches, and then we had another long drive to Peggy's Cove. Unfortunately, from my seat, it was difficult to enjoy the scenery along the way. The documentaries we watched during the long drives were very interesting. We had an hour at Peggy’s Cove, where it was raining. Paul was very considerate in offering us umbrellas and in making the pickup convenient for us due to the rain. I was disappointed that we didn’t get to drive by the Citadel and Town Clock for a picture. He did an excellent job of getting us back to our cruise ship on time.

        Interesting and Informative Tour
        Paul is very knowledgable about local history and sites. During some of the travel time where there wasn’t much to see outside, Paul played a short documentary about the Titanic and The Halifax Explosion which added to this enjoyable tour.

      Pauls' Halifax Titanic Historical Tour was fabulous! It is well worth the price you pay. Paul takes extra care to make sure his guests are comfortable and learn everything there is to know about his great city and Province. Paul has tremendous knowledge and interesting stories to share making the sights all the more meaningful. There is no way to experience Halifax in the same way on your own. My wife and I recommend using Paul for your tour.

      1000% worth every penny

      We love to see the sites, but a guided tour is so worth it because Paul gave us the back stories, the nuances and descriptions. Paul added photos and videos to support the tour, which made it even more interesting.

      What i ver much love is his support for local, artisan shops and restaurants. Included in the tour were local stops at the Farmers Market, Fisherman’s Cove shops and the little restaurant. These are EXACTLY the places i love to visit and I loved supporting these hardworking folks.

      Do this tour at the beginning of your stay. His tour gave us a much better appreciation of the city, and as we explored the city during our stay, we often said, “Remember what Paul said about that place?” 🤣

      Paul picked our small cruise group from the ship and off we went. He is passionate about the history of Halifax and the links to Titanic and the Halifax Explosion. Paul provides details of this beautiful city that you probably wouldn't get on other tours. We visited 2 Titanic grave sites and the Monument dedicated to victims of the Explosion - all very moving. A stroll through Victoria Park to stretch our legs. We made the Citadel for the changing of the guard (impressive, Paul had the group standing in the best location!) A visit to Fisherman's Cove made my day as a local asked me "Do you come from away?" Great tour, if I ever make it back to Halifax I'll be sure to check in with Paul

      After two cancellations, our New England/Atlantic Canada cruise finally came to pass. Early on in planning, I had booked Paul McNeil’s Halifax Titanic Historical Tour. It was refreshing that he required no deposit, so we were out no money as the 2+ years passed. I reconfirmed with Paul a couple of times and, finally, we were able to visit Halifax in October 2022. Unfortunately, the cruise line had a too-short port time for a city so steeped in history. I had no prior knowledge of Halifax, and didn’t know what to expect. After spending several hours with Paul, I was left longing for more time there. He tailored his tour to our needs and tried to fit in all he possibly could, while mindful of our ship’s departure time.
      In the course of 25 cruises, we have taken many, many tours and Paul is at the top of our list of guides we’ve experienced. His knowledge of the city was obvious and his love for it became apparent in his dialogue. His occasional personal interjections added to our enjoyment.
      My husband and I were very comfortable in the van and the large tablet mounted above the dash held many slides and videos that added to our understanding and enjoyment of the sights we viewed.
      As a testament to the kind of person Paul is, I must tell a somewhat simplified tale of a personal incident. After ending the tour, standing in line to reboard the ship, I was onboard when I realized I was missing my small backpack. I phoned Paul’s cell and he said he’d head right back to the terminal. I was a bit panicked as, by that time, we were very close to all-aboard time. A conscientious young man on the ship’s security staff told me to stay put and he’d go to the terminal. He connected with Paul and retrieved my backpack. A bit later, Paul phoned me to see that I had my backpack and all was well. Paul went the extra mile, literally as well as figuratively!
      Given the opportunity, I would book another tour with Paul McNeil in a heartbeat! I can’t recommend him highly enough!

      This was our family’s first time in Halifax and Paul’s tour was an absolutely perfect introduction to Halifax, Dartmouth and Fisherman’s Cove. Paul is so knowledgeable about the city’s history and backs up his information with short video clips, photos and first hand stories. He also ensured we experienced the one of a kind venues like the 11am bells tolling at the Halifax Explosion Memorial and noon canon firing at The Citadel. If we are fortunate to return to Halifax in the summer, we’ll definitely be signing up to take his nature and winery. Paul, thank you for a fantastic day!!

      Paul was very knowledgeable about Nova Scotia,Halifax and the history of the Titanic and the Halifax explosion.
      I took an private 6 hour tour and felt I knew a great deal more about history after my day was over.
      The immaculate car was equipped with masks,wipes and hand sanitizer. There was water and treats as well as maps and books!
      Paul used a screen with photos and videos to relate the history he was explaining. This would be most helpful in the event that mobility was limited .
      His timing was excellent-we were at the Noon day gun for the actual firing!
      I would certainly recommend this tour for a wonderful day in Halifax!

      I would highly recommend this tour if you want to learn about and see more of the city of Halifax Nova Scotia, our guide Paul was extremely knowledgeable. The tour takes you all around Halifax and with a visit to Dartmouth and Fisherman's Cove. Paul's photos and videos on a large screen provide more information and background on the places we passed or visited. A great tour thank you Paul.

      Paul was an exceptional guide who took us to the historical sites that the tour buses go to, but he also drove us to less touristy historical sites that were just as interesting. My favorite thing (and surprise) is his van has a large monitor in front of the van. He used the technology a lot to enhance our knowledge with pictures or short documentaries. My second favorite thing was his van is specious and has a high roof. It was easy to get in and out of. Depending on when you make your reservation, your seat is assigned and you know it. First gets first row. Very simple and keeps things fair. Just a great experience!

      This is a superb way to visit this wonderful seaport city of Halifax, NS. Paul was exceptional. He was entertaining, historically accurate and made Canadian history come to life for our small tour. More than just "seeing the sights," Paul took time to tell us why things happened as well as where they happened. He was a gracious and patient professional who treated everyone like his personal guest. His choice of locations, timing and use of supporting videos made it even easier to "see" inside special locations. The ride as very comfortable and we were able to stop and ask questions and take loss of great photographs (inside as well as outside on our tour. Paul's planning was like a well choreographed production, I was hesitant at first to take a "driving tour" but this trip was the very best.

      I had taken this tour with Paul a few years earlier, but it was so great that I wanted to repeat it. We were on a cruise that went to Halifax twice. Once I booked the cruise, I contacted Paul as he is high demand - he is that good. Since the pandemic he has bought a new van that comfortably seats 10. He uses a large, mounted screen at the front of the van to augment what he is telling about the history of Halifax. And what rich history it is. Paul is an encyclopedia of knowledge with some humor thrown in. Always professional, his one goal is to make sure his guests are having their needs and expectations exceeded.

      This tour includes many of the iconic and historical sites of Halifax, which are numerous, with a focus on the Halifax explosion, which is an unbelievable story, the role Halifax played in the Titanic tragedy, the Halifax Citadel Fortress and the changing of the guards, the public gardens and so much more. Lunch was in Fisherman's Village. The food was outstanding, and the village is very scenic and quaint. Best of all, he takes you to places that are so much better than the usual tourist attractions.

      As mentioned, Paul is in high demand so book early. One of the best tours I have ever taken (twice), and I have traveled all over the world. Your will have no regrets if you use Paul. I will book him again, even for the same tour, if I ever return to Halifax.
