    Excellent Tour and Wonderful Tour Guide

    Jonathon, our tour guide, was knowledgeable about the areas we visited. He was friendly and entertaining. He provided narration while we were driving to each place, then allowed us to explore each area on our own once we arrived. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and Mahone Bay.

    The tour of a lifetime!

    This is simply the most excellent tour to do. Our tour guide, Jonathan was charming, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He ensured that his passengers were comfortable, happy, and getting the most from this once in a lifetime experience. He provided facts and information about the places we visited, and made us laugh with humour. We visited Peggy's Cove first and he provided us with a good amount of time to see this breathtaking place. We made our way to Lunenburg following Peggy's Cove and had even more time to shop and explore this quintessentially quaint east coast town! There are many cute shops and places to have lunch. Jonathan gave us a bit extra time to soak in all the beauty! Lastly, we finished the tour in Mahone Bay with a short visit and walk through the town. Jonathan was really thoughtful to the passengers and provided a pituresque drive by taking a route that was a little off the beaten path. The trip was worth the cost and really was a once in a lifetime experience. Jonathan was friendly, fun, and thoughtful. We very much appreciated his flexibility on the tour in allowing us additional time and going beyond the 4:30 pm deadline. He routinely checked in with us to make sure we had what we needed. He put the passengers needs above his own, and he was primarily concerned with ensuring we got what we wanted out of the experience. Many thanks for making this a memorable and life changing experience! 10/10 recommend!

    A must do trip on your Halifax adventure! Loved the small group which gave us much more of a personal feel. Johnathan was a wealth of knowledge and an absolute natural. Most tours a very scripted but Johnathan encouraged us to ask questions and we learned so much. Great sense of humour too , that was a perfect fit for us. We celebrated our 19th anniversary that day and we're so glad we did.

    My grandson and I had the BEST day despite a bit of a damp and foggy start. Lunenburg was a delight, Peggy’s Cove was fun and the driver Johnathan was amazing. To say he is someone who likes his work is an understatement. He had stories, reflections and knowledge about the region that made the day come alive. I lived in NS for 5 years and learned a few things I hadn’t learned when I lived here. Well worth the time in my opinion.

    Dear Jan. Indeed, meeting you and your grandson was an honor. He is an intelligent person and our conversation was on a different level. I pray that our paths will cross again in the cause of our life time...Be Blessed. Shalom!!!.

    We did not get any information or history about the places we visited. All the guide talked about was his wife, 5 children and his job. I had to look up information on google. There was no benefit to taking this tour. I would recommend not taking this tour.
