I would give William (our local tour guide) 5 stars …but really I'd rather given him 6 or 7. He was knowledgeable, very communicative, and an all-round outstanding guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you

I don't even know where to begin... I think William was one of the very best guides we have ever had. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of history and architecture which he conveyed with wit and charm... there was never a boring moment and seeing the city though his eyes was like being in every moment of history he described. I can't say enough.... William will WOW you in Halifax and I now have a HUGE appreciation for the importance of this city throughout history. Thank You so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you

William is completely and totally knowledgeable about his native city and the region he loves. His tour was a wonderful introduction to this fascinating city. I booked this tour because we don't have a lot of time here in Halifax (sadly) and I wanted as much information as I could et in as short a time as possible to get as much as possible from our visit. My goal was met because of William!! Thank you!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Welcome and enjoy the rest of your travels.

William's love of his city, Halifax, showed through with each explanation of the city's history-from the Titanic stories to the beautiful architecture and why the city remains as fabulous as it is today- much of the architecture has not been modernized externally -making Halifax a city of remarkable history.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy you enjoyed seeing Halifax and it was a lovely day for a walking tour. It was a pleasure to show you Halifax.

Tour: Peggy's Cove & Lighthouse Route, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Date: Oct 14/17

Crammed 3 of us (one of us handicapped and one very large) plus himself and a driver in a very small car (!), then talked us out of going to Peggy's Cove because he said it was too far, spent hours showing us unimportant buildings and trivia, We felt we did not get to see the best part of Halifax, tho the museum of the explosion was interesting. We asked To be dropped off early

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My apologies and I will do better to improve your experience on the next visit to Halifax. I am saddened to hear you did not enjoy the tour to the level you expected but before the tour began, and during, the options of places to visit and different types of vehicles where given. I normally do tours in a van, but a Honda Civic was selected instead. Travel outside of Halifax was not possible due to time.

William graciously accommodated our schedule. He prepared specific information to satisfy our particular interests. He was knowledgable and entertaining. He structured the tour, starting at the top floor of the new library, to give us a general overview before moving into the specifics of the Schmidtville neighborhood. He was both friendly and very professional. Great tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and it was a joy to do the tour.
