Nice, knowledgeable, and adapted the tour our needs. We really enjoyed our tour with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure. Apologies for the Friday night cacophony -- Blomidon Inn would have been a lot quieter!

Jay was a wonderful tour guide; the best you could ask for. His "bottomless" knowledge of people, places, things, history was phenomenal. In a word, FABULOUS trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ann, I enjoyed the tour as much as you -- Terry's ball cap is on its way to LA :)

We were picked up on time in a nice, clean vehicle with plenty of room (4 of us). The day started out cloudy and then turned to rain and it poured all day long. Despite this, the tour was informative and we saw quite a bit. Jay is very knowledgeable and welcomed questions. Some surprisingly decent wines during the wine-tastings and beautiful tasting rooms/facilities. Wish we'd had more time to spend in Halifax and Nova Scotia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Annette. It was a soggy day in the valley, but there was plenty of sunshine in the van. Really enjoyed squiring you all around the countyside -- felt like part of the family! :) All the best, Jay

Date: Aug 2/18

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Howard, this was a special day for me as you know, being of Acadian ancestry myself. You've got me curious about LeBlanc Village now -- I'll be bugging Sara about the location! Very sorry about being late for your tour -- this was entirely my fault and had nothing to do with TBL. All the best, Jay

I could go on and on about what a wonderful time we had. In brief, Jay really knows his history, is a safe driver, will accommodate one's special interests, is personable and flexible. He knows where to find the good photo ops and great eats. The area is smashingly beautiful and full of fascinating stories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I couldn't ask for a nicer review to start the 2018 season -- Thank you!

Jay was professional, intelligent, articulate, and a great resource for Nova Scotia. he is a wonderful guide and anyone who chooses to go with him will reap a memorable experience. He was flexible and entertaining and left us with a great deal more knowledge about Halifax and the rest of Nova Scotia than we had when we arrived, which was the goal.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sherry, for taking the time to review my tour. You were gracious and appreciative guests, and I hope you saw enough of our beautiful province to entice you back for a return visit! Safe travels and best wishes, Jay

Our aptly titled Acadian Tides & Vines tour was thoroughly enjoyable. Jay did an excellent job driving us safely while explaining Acadian history in an informative and colourful way. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and knew all the best spots and viewpoints in the Annapolis Valley. The wines and low tides were equally amazing. Thank you, Jay!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was truly a pleasure to meet your talented family. I hope this will not be your last visit to Nouvelle Écosse (et merci pour le donair :)

It's so hard to choose a tour online - but take my advice, a definite win taking a day tour with Jay! He is courteous, professional, and provides terrific detail and info about Halifax and all of the surrounding areas. Family truly enjoyed his company and a great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad you enjoyed the tour -- the weather certainly didn't hurt. Thanks for your back road navigational assistance and sorry we hit commuter traffic at the end. All the best, Jay
