We wanted to learn a little bit about halifax and get to see the spookier side of the city. Andy did a marvelous job mixing history, horror, and humour on this 2 hour walk around the city. Definitely worth it!

We did this tour about 2 weeks ago. We are both from here but had never done Andy's tour. We had been missing out!! His tour was a bundle of knowledge, along with great wit and an animated presentation. It was fantastic, I highly recommend it to anyone, and will bring visitors along as they come to visit me :)...

We recently traveled from Cape Breton to Halifax with a group of 40 Grade 7 and 8 students. We wanted to keep the kids busy and active in the evening after a day of bus travel and an afternoon museum visit (Pier 21). The tour was educational, fun and enjoyable for all. Andy was interesting, engaging and very knowledgeable. We... More
