Jay was a wonderful tour guide, providing a fantastic tour of Halifax and surrounding areas - one that most tours would not include. He also was extremely considerate in providing help and assistance that was well-beyond the normal obligations of a tour guide. I heartily recommend him and most certainly would seek his tour assistance should we return to the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review, Ralph. It was my pleasure showing you and your party around Halifax -- thanks to you I now know where the currency exchange is located! All the best, Jay

Jay was an incredible tour guide. He tailored the sights to see for what we were interested in. His knowledge was unbelievable regarding anything we asked him. The vehicle was comfortable and he even provided water for us. Jay made our visit to Halifax extremely enjoyable. We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was entirely my pleasure to have you as guests. I hope you have the opportunity to visit Nova Scotia again, hopefully when it’s a bit warmer! Safe travels, Jay

Jay is a historian so he was wonderful to share his knowledge of a beautiful city! Halifax is much larger than we expected and we only wish we had more time to explore.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words -- I hope you come see us again in the not-too-distant future!

Our first time to Halifax and our guide, Jay, made it memorable. We were taken to very interesting sites, including the Citadel, the cemetery where the people on the Titanic were buried, the public gardens and very interesting Victorian homes. Jay was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all sorts of questions. Fran K. -- Sept 2017

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to review my tour. It's always a pleasure to show visitors the highlights of Halifax when they are as genial and enthusiastic as your group. I hope you have the opportunity to visit Nova Scotia again soon. All the best, Jay

Jay was a wonderful guide! Knowledgeable and passionate about Halifax/ Nova Scotia history, We could not have asked for a better guide! I think he got a feel for what we were interested and tailored our tour to our interests and needs. If we had more time I would have booked him for a second tour outside of Halifax. VERY comfortable van, and he even provided Iceberg Water! Really, there could be no better guide for your Nova Scotia tour. Highly, highly recommend Jay!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a fun tour and I'm glad you enjoyed it. Customizing the itinerary makes it more interesting for me as well; otherwise I tend to stick to the tried-and-true. The stop at Tim's wasn't particularly exciting, but Julien's was an inspired choice, thanks to you. I'll be keeping it in mind for future tours! Cheers, Jay

Jay White gave us a fun and informative tour which included the highlights and other requests focusing on the Titanic. He related well with the 10 year old and suggested websites go further info. Perfect morning in all ways

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your grandson was a delight, and I hope you both enjoyed the Titanic exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Safe travels and come see us again!

Jay arranged a bus for 16 of us. It was for my mother in law's 90 the birthday. Jay was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable, very friendly and very accommodating. It was a wonderful tour. Jay made it a very memorable day for my mother in law. The bus driver Jim was also wonderful, and very helpful. I highly recommend Jay if you're in Halifax.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a privilege to be your guide in Halifax; it was a special day for me as well. Thank you for your patronage.

Jay was extremely knowledgeable and versatile; we had selected outdoor activities to do along with museums and we had a 100% rainy day which he accommodated well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rain can put a damper on site visits but you were tolerant & genial companions. I'm glad we managed a short amble through the Public Gardens but sorry you didn't get to see the Maud Lewis exhibit in the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Next time I hope!

We had the pleasure of having Jay as our exclusive tour guide for three days during our visit to Halifax. Jay is a native of the area and has extensive knowledge of the city history. Jay's tour of the city was a great introduction to the area. Jay provided insight into Halifax's history that is not listed on other tours. We found this tour to be quite interesting and highly educational. We will definitely recommend Jay to our friends and colleagues. The Hall's

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my privilege to be your guide for three different tours during your stay in Halifax. Thank you for your patronage -- and for bringing such fine weather!

My wife and I certainly enjoyed our tour of Halifax with Jay. He modified our tour to fit our interests. Jay is very knowledgable about the history of the area and could relate the event to what was going on in the rest of the world. If you have the opportunity to have Jay as your tour guide, you will not only have an enjoyable tour but it will also be a great learning experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure spending the day with you. Hope I get out to Oshkosh some day for the air show!
