We had a great day with Carl and he was punctual on picking us up. He was knowledgeable about all things around Halifax. The tour was catered to our needs and the group abilities. He had a lot of knowledge about things to see & do and the life of people in Halifax. He took us to a lovely restaurant and gave us some personal time enjoy your lunch. I would really recommend Karl for a trip in and around Halifax and the things to see in that part of Nova Scotia.

Even though our ship was many hours late and we didn't have time for the tour we booked, Karl gave us a great tour for the time we had. I'd never heard of the SS Atlantic and the fall colors were spectacular. We're already planning to go back and take the correct tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!! It was my pleasure Karl

From the moment I booked the tour Karl made me feel welcome and very taken care of. He said he would make the day special for me and it truly was. Although my daughters and I were late getting off the ship, Karl had already sent a text to make us feel welcome and told us exactly where to meet him - he even had a sign for us. The day went uphill from there. Karl truly made one of my dreams of seeing Oak Island come true. He had pleasant conversation the whole way and I just can't say more nice things!

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 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.

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.
