A great way to see both land and sea in Halifax. A 55 minute tour split with views from the harbour as well as highlights of the city via an amphibious craft. This is a guided tour so you learn quite a bit and is the right amount of time. It's very popular so allow time to book before you... More

The harbour hopper takes you on a very interesting tour of downtown halifax. The guides also pack some humour into their talks keeping it interesting. There were some technical difficulties with the sound system but they fixed it as quickly as possible and we were on our way again. I really liked it when the vessel goes into the water.... More

The Harbour Hopper tour is an excellent way to get an overview of the history and geographic layout of downtown Halifax and the Harbour. The Captain and tour guide provided excellent customer service and a very interesting and entertaining presentation. We had limited time in Halifax and this provided us with the overview we were looking for without walking long... More

Always like these types of tours, he get to learn a lot about the city. Our tour guide was very funny, friendly and we'll spoken. He gave us the must know facts along with personal details that made the tour that much better. The water portion was also great, kids had a great time!

We went on the harbour hopper with our 2 small kids by booking in advance via telephone earlier in the day for a 7:30 p.m. tour. I am so glad we waited for the evening tour!! The amphibious portion was stunning while the sun was going down. Our tour guide was loads of fun! This was by far our highlight... More

This was a highly recommended activity by a number of people and Reviews in Trip Advisor. The cost for the one hour land and sea, amphibious tour is reasonable given what they usually deliver. Our guide and captain were excellent but halfway through the tour our "Harbour Hopper" broke down. They were very good about giving us a refund. I... More

We booked online but when we showed up for the tour, they hadn't received confirmation from the booking company and had consequently filled our spot. They did offer us a spot on the next available tour, but that didn't meet our other plans. We requested a refund through the booking company and were issued one within a few hours. Apparently,...

Had visitors from Tennessee and my husband and I took them on the Harbour Hopper. We all had a good time, but don't sit in the very back seat, could hardly hear the commentary over the noise of the engine.

The tour isn't cheap but the tour is laid out comprehensively and thoroughly, however the guide was using his own attitudes (American boat "buzzes"Canadian naval ships in harbor, CANADIANS(not the English) fought America in 1812 etc.etc. Was it a big deal? Not really, but the guide made a big deal out of the fact that he was a student working... More
