My friend and I took the Princess' New England and Canada cruises in September 2013. My friend had toured Halifax before but I had not. Before our trip, I emailed the www.halifaxcruiseshiptaxitours.com for info. I indicated our desire to join other parties of 2 to 4 people to charter a van for 5-6 hours. Lucinda was very responsive and kept communicating with me via emails. After a couple of months, she linked us up with another couple so the taxi reservation was confirmed. The other couple later met two other passengers on the ship who wanted to join us for the Halifax taxi tour also. When the ship arrived at the Halifax, our tour guide Eric had a sign of our names and was waiting for us at the terminal already. Eric is from local who is a very knowledgeable and friendly guy. He told us that if we have particular place we want to visit or we want to make a stop then simply let him know. Since no one said anything, Eric took us to places that he thought would be interested to us. We visited places such as the Peggy's Cove, maple syrup outlet, the grave site of the 121 Titanic victims, etc.. Eric also took us to his brother's house and later to his sister's house so we could walk around on their beautiful waterfront back yards. Overall, I truly enjoyed the tour.

This tour was great. All the correspondence I had with Lucinda before the tour was prompt and informative and gave me the feeling we were in good hands. We had a group of 7 and Lucinda made sure she found a vehicle that would comfortably seat all of us. Peggy's Cove was breathtakingly beautiful. Although the weather was cold at the end of October, we were lucky to have a pretty and sunny day. "Bubbles", our driver, was courteous, informative and personable. I would highly recommend this tour if you are in Halifax. Great value for the price. We prefer to organize our own tours rather than take ship's excursions as it is so much better with a smaller group and we find that the tours are more in depth when given by locals.

We had a blast on the tour! We really enjoyed Al and he was very knowledgeable about everything, including the Titanic cemetary and all of the wooden sculptures made from the trees around Halifax after the hurricane in 2009. We loved seeing Peggy's Cove and the lobsters at Ryder's were fantastic. We even got to visit one of the fishing cottages that some of his friends stay at for part of the year. All in all, we enjoyed everything very much. Al asked us along the way what we wanted to do so we felt very comfortable with our tour. Thanks again.

We arrived on Cunard QM2 having pre arranged a taxi trip to see all the sights of Halifax. I had been delighted with the email responses and was confident we would have a wonderful day. Richard was waiting in the arrivals hall and we started our trip with a visit to Peggy's Cove. A trip to Ryers for the best lobster I have ever tasted and then onto other stops which included a visit to the Titanic graves in Halifax and a tour of the city and its landmarks. We had a wonderful cruise and our trip to Halifax was one of the highlights. Thank you Richard and Lucinda!

Were were cruising on Holland America from Quebec through to Boston. We pre-booked two vans following other reviews on Trip Advisor. From the first email Lucinda was quick to respond and so helpful in organising the itinerary for our day. There were six of us in each van travelling from Australia. Another pleasant surprise was that we did not have to pay any deposit and payment was not made until the completion of the tour. We were met at the Pier by Al with a sign and a big smile. This tour was a highlight of our trip and despite the wet day it was a very pleasant time spent in Halifax. Al was very informative answering our many questions as we drove along and stopping to enable us to take photos of the beautiful surroundings. We visited firstly the Maple Syrup venue to avoid the rain and hoping it would clear. We visited Ryers Lobsters and fortunately the rain had stopped and we were able to sit outside on the picnic tables and enjoy the amazing freshly cooked 2lb lobsters which Al broke up for us. Our pictures of Peggys cove may be a bit foggy but our memories of a wonderful day will remain with us always. We would highly recommend this Tour company. Thankyou Lucinda and Al.
