I really enjoyed this tour. It's not just about the gorgeous scenery at every turn. Nancy uses her wealth of local knowledge and her fascinating personal ties to the area to spin tales about the colourful history of Lunenburg. The final destination of Blue Rocks is worth the price of entry alone.

Nancy is an amazing kind hearted person with warm and welcoming positive vibe for tourist which makes you feel at home.
As a solo traveler, with limited public transportation options in Lunenburg there could be challenges if don’t have a car or don’t know how to drive, if incase you want to explore places within Lunenburg vicinity.
She was kind enough to take me to Mahone Bay which is a 20 minutes drive from Lunenburg.
She offers set tour packages and also provides shuttle services and you can reach out to her on phone and she promptly gets back to you.
I highly recommend doing a tour with her, very professional and offers the best of what she can share with tourist.
Her tour bus stands right by the Bluenose ship docking section and has inquiry board easily visible.
Cheers, thank you Nancy

We regularly visit Lunenburg from Halifax for a quick little break from the city. We noticed the Seaweed Tours Bus on Bluenose Drive when we visited again this summer. My wife and I decided to try it out. To our delight, Nancy the owner and tour guide gave us a spectacular tour of the town of Lunenburg and beyond.

We ended up seeing the historical Blue Rocks which is a small quiet fishing village just outside of Lunenburg. The tour is of great value and lots of fun. There are some extra little tidbits that were added to the tour that you need to discover for yourself. I highly recommend to break up the day and give this tour a go.

Nancy was an amazing host, weaving her own experience into the tales of Lunenburg history. A beautiful day. A beautiful town. A beautiful tour.

Be sure you have a full day (or 3) to spend visiting the south shore sites around Lunenburg and Mahone Bay.

Our guide Nancy is a lovely, warm person who's lived her life in the area for 40+ years with her extended family. Her passion for the community and her knowledge of its history, added a wonderful perspective to the "hidden gems" we saw today. We're from Australia and will go home with a great appreciation and understanding of the history, culture and role that Lunenburg plays in the world today, thanks to Nancy. Highly recommend Nancy's tours!

We had a great tour on the Hidden Gems Bus with Nancy. We were picked up and dropped off on Bluenose Drive which is the main waterfront road we heard lots of yarns (stories) about life and history in Lunenberg. We would highly recommend this tout

I took the Hidden Gems Tour with a small group that was actually a zoom class. We had all been in a class together through covid and decided to meet in person for one of Seaweed Tours. It was perfect because everyone was masked on the bus with distance between us, and there were multiple outdoor stops for lots of air! It was so lovely to be able to meet everyone in person after being cooped up for months.

I am local to Lunenburg County and Nancy (our guide extraordinaire) took us to locations that I'd never been before. It truly was a hidden gem. Nancy is a natural storyteller, her personal and town history along the way was wonderful.

I left with new knowledge, friends, and some breathtaking pictures! Would definitely recommend for locals and visitors alike!

Nancy is a great guide to beautiful scenery around Lunenburg with an entertaining mix of local history, lore and stories. I've been to Lunenburg a few times, but I havent had the opportunity to see all the hidden areas known only to the locals of the town. If you are visiting in the future this is a must do!

Girls birthday weekend. Took a Seaweed bus tour with Nancy who kept us entertained with delightful stories and yarns about sea life and history of some of Lunenburg highlights and showed us some of the beauty around the outskirts in Blue Rocks and Stonehurst. We have been to Lunenburg many times but had not seen this side of the town

Delightful tour with the owner/operator and a long-time resident of Lunenburg. She knew the gems of the historic town and area; she was willing to show us and tell us the surrounding tales that cannot be found just on Google. Would highly recommend joining her. When my family and friends come to visit, Seaweed tours will be high on the list of must-do’s
