William B.

Halifax, NS, Canada

Welcome to Halifax, Nova Scotia, the place I call home.

While you are visiting, I hope it will be your home too. Halifax has a rich heritage and culture which I am sure you will enjoy. I look forward to sharing and exploring Halifax with you!

I have over ten years of guiding experience and my degree in Classics. I am sure by the end of the tour you will gain a better understanding of Halifax's history and culture. We will discover Halifax's downtown connection to the Titanic, military and much more.

I specialize in walking tours. However, on specific request case basis I can book a vehicle for tours.

There is so much to offer and enjoy in Atlantic Canada's largest city. So come and enjoy home away from home with me.
