“Excellent, inexpensive city tour service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2011

My wife and I visited in Saint John on a Princess Cruise this month. As per usual, Princess wanted >$50 for a city tour. We discovered that the City of Saint John offers, guided, one and two hour tours a very short walk from the ship. Be advised that this tour only runs from June through early October - not year-round.

You find the tour across the street from the Barbour's General Store. You basically line up at a sign placed on the side walk. The city bus will arrive, you give the driver $10.00 (US) and off you go.

The driver was very knowledgeable, and drove us all around downtown, the various city neighborhoods, and to the Reversing Falls. You can get off at the Reversing Falls and wait for the next bus for the return trip (but it is over an hour wait.) My wife and I could not get over how good a value it was - an excellent tour for much less then you'd pay if you'd booked it on the cruise ship.
