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

Andy provided outstanding service and truly listened to what was important to us. All of his communications with me in planning our visit had been clear and thorough whether he was answering my many questions or giving us directions on where to meet at the pier. Unlike the many other Canadian tour guides we’ve had, he was genuinely willing to... More

My wife and I took the Halifax ghost tour on a warm Friday night and enjoyed it thoroughly. Andy was very knowledgeable about the ghost stories, and his love of Halifax came through as well. We had a large group with a number of children and Andy kept everyone engaged. Highly recommended.
