Get to know the person behind the tour

Andy S.

Halifax, NS, Canada

For over fifteen years, I have hosted thousands of visitors to and residents of Nova Scotia.

As a seasoned tour guide as well as a professional actor (an ACTRA member), I offer entertaining and informative private walking and step-on guided tours. When you book a tour with me, I am happy to conduct that tour for you and your group alone.

Being a friendly, lively and courteous person, I delight in sharing many fascinating stories, little known facts and lots of local gossip. At this moment, I have conducted over 110 tours for ToursByLocals (not to mention the hundreds of other tours I have also given). And I am not ashamed to say that, based on these tours, I have received many five star, glowing reviews! I warmly invite you to join me!

As an actor, I have appeared in many film and TV projects including; Haven, Call Me Fitz, Love and Death on Long Island, Moby Dick, Countdown to Liquor Day (Trailer Park Boys) and many other projects. Over the years, I have worked with the actors John Hurt, Kate Beckinsale, Tom Selleck, Maury Chaykin and a host of others. And between you and I, I am happy to gossip!

A Recent Review of this guide

Andy met the group at the time and location cited in the tour description. He was personable, respectful and knowledgeable of all the sites visited in Halifax. The woman learned much from the places visited. Being seniors he was so patient with the women. I would highly recommend those who are searching to take this tour. The smaller tour sure bears out the larger bus tours. Thanks Andy. You were a pleasure to work with and plan even before the tour. We continue to talk about the places visited.
