You book your tour right at the boardwalk, and the boat/bus is right nearby. The tour guide was funny and kept our attention and we learned lots about Halifax. It was our first time to ride on a boat/bus, so it was a fun experience when the bus went into the water and we cruised around like a boat.

The tour was fine in the sense that we took a tour of the city and then went into the harbour, which gave us a unique view of the city from the water. However, we couldn't take advantage of what the guide was explaining about the city and its history, because we could barely hear her over the loud sound... More

After our experience, we would suggest you find a good land tour and a separate harbor tour. We could not understand the guide most of the time and we are middle aged people with no hearing problems. It was either his nature to speak very fast and / or the script that the guides must follow require speaking so rapidly... More

We've done this type of tour before in other cities. The ex-military amphibious vehicle that they drive around and then plunk it into the water. It's cheesy but I have to admit it always puts a smile on my face, and the kids never seem to tire of the schtick. Enjoyable overview of the city and harbour and our guide... More

Shout out to Jenny and captain Collin! What a great tour! The tour guide, Jenny, had the perfect energy for showing us around town! Very knowledgeable and told stories very accurately and with lots of enthusiasm and you could tell she has a real passion for the city and for sharing it with us! Learned so much about Halifax -...

Generally I don't do this type of tour-just seems a lil juvenile/mass touristy to me. This time I took the tour at a friends wish. It seems to be the most popular city tour in Halifax. It's a good tour, but really it's the guide (isn't it always) that makes this worth the trip-they are funny and entertaining. If you're... More

LARC5 military amphibious vehicles have been converted to provide an exciting ride around Halifax and along the waterfront - in the water. The commentator was enthusiastic but much of the commentary was inaudible due to the poor quality speakers. Even so a great way to see the downtown areas and the harbour on a one-hour tour. It was pleasing that... More

It is a decent tour of Halifax, but I would recommend the Segway Tour or the Ghost Walk of Historic Halifax over this (we took all three tours). However, the guide was entertaining and knowledgeable.
