My friend Sandra and I just returned from Nfld where we did a five day tour with the McCarthy Party. Steve Watson was our guide each day and I can guarantee you that we couldn’t have had a better time. If you or anyone you know are planning a trip contact the McCarthy party and let them do the work for you. Thanks Steve for a wonderful five days, even a half day of drizzle and fog couldn’t put a damper on our holiday.

A comfortable bus takes you around the city, with stops along the way. A good way to get oriented. Our driver Larry Hann was well informed and charming. Worth the 3 hours.

We booked a brewery tour with McCarthy's for a 50th birthday event with family and friends (in March -- I hear that's pretty rare?!) and it was the highlight of our trip. Steve Gosse and JP were the perfect guides and went the extra mile to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. Steve's a true Newfoundlander and knows everything there is to know about St. John's (or if he didn't, he sure fooled us!). And JP, for a guy "from away", fits right in. If you're looking for a fun tour around this amazing city of St. John's -- you can't do better than McCarthy's and Steve!

Brewery tours are always fun but the guides with McCarthy's Party Tours add a whole other dimension to the experience. Many thanks to Steve and JP for coordinating this. And thanks to you for sharing your experience with McCarthy's Party Tours.

Larry Hamm, our tour guide, made a the day tour fun and informative. You could tell he is very proud to introduce us to St. John's and the surrounding area. We learned the history and where we wanted to spend more time after our tour.
