Andy was able to make our tour work even though the weather wasn't as cooperative. He knew just where to take us for the best views (and photo stops). He provided information throughout the tour that was both interesting and informative. He even sent me photos from The Old Burying Ground as I wasn't able to get out in the rain and take my own. He called ahead to a great restaurant to secure us seating for lunch (our detour choice) - lucky for us as there was a long line.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Tammy, for your kind words.

Andy was a delightful tour guide and very flexible in the desires of our small group. While we did visit many of the same places as the big buses, it was refreshing to move at a faster pace and change the itinerary as we went along. An additional stop at one of the 3 cemeteries that have the remains of Titanic victims was one of the most poignant moments we ever experienced in a tour. Andy made it so personal as he shared stories of several victims. Andy is a great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great to meet you! And let's just say that we all became stronger people from that day! Cheers! Andy

Andy gave us a terrific tour of Halifax, incorporating easily what we wanted to see, from Lunenburg to Peggy's Cove to parts of Halifax within our timeframe. He was extremely knowledgeable, covering all the facts, figures, and lore with a lot humor thrown in for good measure. We've done many tours in our travels and Andy is easily among the best we've had. Thank you Andy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, thank you for your lovely sentiments. I thoroughly enjoyed our day together. Andy

An excellent tour, the start of which was marred by difficulty locating the guide! Understand the problem and I know it won't happen again. Truly enjoyed our day.

Andy is the tour guide you want to book if you are looking for a personally tailored tour. At all times before and during our day with him, he made sure that we got to see exactly what we wanted to see. Just an all around friendly person who makes you immediately feel comfortable. I'm very glad that I chose Andy.

Andrew SeborUnited States
We were delighted with our tour with Andy; like catching up with an old college buddy. The tour itself was excellent, getting to see Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and Mahone, plus an out the windows tour of Halifax. Whatever ToursByLocals is doing to get these great guides, KEEP IT UP.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I agree! I found our day together to be both relaxed and informative. I enjoyed sharing some of Nova Scotia's rich history and culture as well as learning about you and your family, career, etc.. And I hope the rest of your cruise was equally enjoyable! Cheers!

Great tour "off the beaten track" just how we like it! Good info, scenery, history with a local flavor... We'd book again in a heartbeat! ST California
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Aww . . . you're very kind, Sheriil. I too enjoyed spending the full day with you. Hope you had a great trip downeast!
Although our ship was almost an hour late, Andy adjusted the tour plan so we were still able to see everything we had hoped. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. He had made lunch reservations so we wouldn't have to wait in line. He tailored the tour to our specific interests. We were very pleased and feel we came away with a very positive glimpse of that region of Nova Scotia - as much as anyone could get within our limited time frame.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was great to meet you all and I'm happy that we got to see as much of the province as we did. Hope the rest of your cruise was enjoyable.
Kevin PotterUnited States

Joan OakleyRoseville, CA, United States
Andy was an exellent tour guide - very knowledgable, personable, on time and caring of his passengers. We went to Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg Village and a very good lobster restaurant nearby. I recommend him to all travelers to Halifax.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Joan, for your kind words. As I remember it, we had gorgeous weather, good company and decent food. Thanks for coming along.
Andy is a nice fellow who has great knowledge of the area. He took us to some pretty neat spots off the beaten track,had a great day.
