Our group truly appreciated the wonderful service given to us by Karl and his associate. Karl was most helpful in securing transportation, great dialog during our tour and a wonderful place to stop for lunch. We are greatly impressed by the Tours By Locals organization and their guides.

Three weeks late we are still raving about this trip. We're from Seattle so we figured we wouldn't be that enthralled with the area around Halifax Nova Scotia. We were wrong, wrong, wrong. Karl got us to Peggy Cove before the tour buses. We loved our visit with Ivan Fraser---what a character. And the seafood chowder and Solomon Grundy (herring salad) at the small restaurant can't be beat. If you take a back to back cruise do yourself a favor, book Karl for both ways. I wish we did.

Karl was so good and our group had such a great time. The history that he was able to share with us was so good. Would love to do another tour of a different part with Karl. He will be requested next time for sure.

Karl was an awesome tour guide! It was great to be able to go to cool places that were not busy with tourists. The only one that had lots of tourists was Peggy's Cove. We did a little hiking and saw some cool lighthouses. We loved the little fishing villages and all of the great interesting stories/facts about Halifax. He suggested a local restaurant and even made reservations for us. I asked for suggestions on food and wine and both were yummy!

Karl is the best! Very friendly and knowledgeable about Halifax. He took us to out of the places. We really enjoyed the tour and his company.

Karl and Jim took our group of 10 on a very scenic tour of Halifax, Peggy's Cove and the shoreline that we enjoyed immensely. They accommodated our needs by being flexible in timing our lunch requests. They were very knowledgeable and friendly and we recommend them highly.

Karl was a great guide. He is very knowledgeable about the Halifax area and just a great speaker. He drove us to all locations we wanted to see and suggested a great lunch spot. I would recommend Karl as a guide to anyone visiting the Halifax area.
Karl gave us a really memorable day, taking us not only to Peggy's Cove but also Terrence Bay, which we particularly enjoyed. He also recommended an excellent restaurant for lunch, and was extremely interesting and informative about the places we visited. We liked the way that Karl consulted us when he met us, to understand our expectations and preferences. This meant that he also took us to Fairview Cemetery to see the Titanic victims' graves, which enhanced our knowledge of Halifax and built on
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments as it assists me when I have other guests It was my pleasure Karl

We had a wonderful day with Karl! He was able to accommodate our group of 15 people ranging in age from 3 to 83 and the whole family enjoyed seeing the sights and hearing about the local history together. Karl gave us plenty of information but still gave us space to talk amongst ourselves. The homemade cookies were a hit with everyone too! Thank you very much Karl for a very successful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it was my pleasure!! You are a lovely family Karl

What a perfect day! and Karl was the perfect guide. Six of us enjoyed his tour to Peggy's Cove, his knowledge of the area, it's rich history and gorgeous scenery. Lunch at Rhubarbs was excellent. Listen to Karl, he knows where the best food is! Thank you Karl. Our best wishes always.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was my absolute pleasure, Charlie rocks!! Best to all
Ken SchwenkeUnited States
Karl was a pleasure to be with, and helped us understand much more about Halifax than we ever would have gotten from a bus tour. He adjusted our trip both to avoid crowds and to meet our desires on what to see - even taking us to a town which had not originally been part of the plan. He also knew his way around, not only on the roads but with great local stops like a restaurant we went to in Chester, which had been around since the early 1800s.
Bev FlugstadUnited States
Karl's enthusiasm and cheerful nature was infectious! He gave us a truly wonderful day as he showed us beautiful Halifax and surrounding sights. Our group couldn't have asked for a better guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bev, thank you, it was my pleasure. Karl
Richard WarnerUnited States
Saw everything we wanted plus a bit extra. Great tour guide, very knowledgeable in the area and considerate.
Karl has been beyond amazing! He took extreme care of my family-my parents and treated them well, showed them all the natural beauty of Nova Scotia! He organized a lobster supper and his driving was safe. Karl organized the trip based on our expectations and added all sites we wanted. We loved him and will recommend him to anyone.

A good way to get away from the crowds and still see many of the sights in and around Halifax. Informative guide with a solid local background, including several areas not mentioned on the itinerary. Most enjoyable and would recommend this tour.

I booked online with Karl. He was responsive and friendly. We had our tour with him today. My in laws are in their 80's. He took great care of us, especially helping them in and out of the Jeep and making sure they didn't have to walk too far. The Jeep was comfortable and he took us around missing all the crowds which was fantastic! This was a great 5 hour tour and I highly recommend. Awesome tour guide who kept us entertained the whole time! (And was a great driver!)
