Very Interesting City

I enjoyed the tour very much. It was a perfect day, small group and our guide was very knowledgeable. Halifax is a beautiful city with a memorable history. The tour ended on the boardwalk which offers many restaurants and vendors.

Excellent tour and guide of Halifax. We saw significant sights and learned about Halifax in a very leisurely manner - nothing was rushed and we had rather a large group. I highly recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed the walking tour of downtown Halifax. The guide provided a lot of interesting information about the buildings and the history of the city. We learned a lot about the history of Canada as well. The pace was comfortable, and we stopped at the fabulous new library where people could sit and have a snack.

Our tour guide Glen was really excellent and really seemed to know what he was talking about, we learned a lot about the city, and got to visit a number of interesting spots. And we got our exercise walking around the city.

Not For Those With Breathing Problems.

The tour guide takes the group all over the center of Halifax. There are some steep streets and a very steep hill to climb. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The tour description should emphasize that people with moderate mobility limitations may have difficulty negotiating some of the hills.

Good value for cost

After some difficulty meeting the guide (5 of us were on time but not certain where he was), the tour continued without a hitch. Our guide Ian was extremely knowledgeable as he had been involved in many historic projects in the city. We covered a significant area, both geographically and factually, with many interesting insights. My only regret was having to leave the tour early in order to return to our ship for an afternoon trip. In all fairness, I don't think the delayed start of the tour affected this significantly; Ian was just a very thorough guide. He was also very receptive to our questions and informational contributions to his narrative.

Excellent tour. Our guide was very informative. The tour covered alot of interesting spots at a comfortable pace. The only thing that would the tour better was if we had headsets to hear the guide. With traffic noise - it was hard to catch all see said .

walking tour of halifax
October 07, 2019
Our tour guide gave us a thorough tour of the city and shoreline activities. Hurricane Dorian had passed through a week before and you could see many of the trees toppled and debris. We were lucky to miss the 100 mile winds. The Victorian Gardens were lovely, the citadel was a must see and we enjoyed the tour very much.

We enjoyed this small walking group around town. Thema, our tour guide was knowledgeable, understandable and very friendly. It was a great way to explore the key points of the area and then we had extra time to walk around on our own.

A Great Guide
November 27, 2018
This was an outstanding tour. The guide was a history professor from a local college. He knew EVERYTHING. Walking tours are the best way to get a good sense of the local culture. This was our second visit to Halifax. I would recommend this tour to anyone that really wants an understanding of the area.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. We walked a very long way at a good clip in the rain and snow. The architecture, including,the library, were extra. The gardens and cemeteries were exquisite. Thank you. Jim and Jody

What a great walking tour!
October 31, 2018
Our walking tour in Halifax with our very knowledgeable guide, Lyle Elkins, Esquire, was terrific! Our three hour walk, mostly on flat surfaces with some hills was enlightening. Lyle knew the city extremely well and had a great sense of humor. We saw parts of the city and learned historic tidbits that we would never have learned on our own. For us, if it is possible, we will continue to do walking tours rather than bus tours. Sometimes a bus tour is the best option as the tour covers a lot of miles out in the country. But we especially loved our walking tour! Excercise and knowledge is the best!

Interesting But Long Walk
October 05, 2018
I enjoyed this walk with our very knowledgable guide. My only caution is that it is a LONG walk, and anyone with any walking difficulties should think twice about attempting it. There were several opportunities during the walk when we stopped for some time at locations where there was seating available. I think it would have been very thoughtful of our guide to encourage us to have a seat while she talked.

Very worthwhile tour, and the guide was as good as he could be. Now, he was substituting for someone else who got sick, but still, he is a regular guide for that tour company.

5 stars for one of the most enjoyable walking tours we have ever had. Our history professor was a delight, a man who loves his history and his city. It was a walk of "lifetime" to a new city of such historic importance. Go Candada, would do it again at a minutes notice.

The tour set the standard for a walking tour exploring a city. From the beginning and to the end, we hung on every word we heard and saw every site come alive as we walked. There is no better way to learn and experience history. Our guide knew her history, added interesting bits of information as we walked and listened. Our time with her ended much too soon.

My guide on this recent tour was Margaret Ann. She was a wealth of information about the many historic sites on this walking tour and spent extra time with the group. When the tour ended at the waterfront boardwalk area she informed us that the both the Titanic museum and the gallery containing the works of Maude Lewis were only a few blocks away. I was most appreciative of this additional information as I was able to visit both on my own following the tour.
