Karl has been beyond amazing! He took extreme care of my family-my parents and treated them well, showed them all the natural beauty of Nova Scotia! He organized a lobster supper and his driving was safe. Karl organized the trip based on our expectations and added all sites we wanted. We loved him and will recommend him to anyone.

Tour: South Shore - Halifax Tour (Shore Excursion), Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Date: May 21/18

We had the most fabulous tour around Halifax & along the shoreline with Karl in his open top Jeep. We stopped at some lovely villages, the Fairview Lawn cemetery, where some of the Titanic victims are buried, a museum commemorating the sinking of the SS Atlantic (which was a great little place run by volunteers), Peggys Cove & a great restaurant for lobster rolls. Karl was informative, enthusiastic and very entertaining; an excellent tour guide, thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary and all. It was wonderful to meet all of you and show you the sights. Kind Regards Karl

Karl was our guide for the day. He tailored our time to incorporate several boat-building businesses I wish to visit. This took time and effort and was greatly appreciated by me. I would recommend Karl to anyone who wishes to see and hear about this beautifal part of the planet.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry, thank you for your feedback, it was great showing you around. It was wonderful to meet both of you. Regards karl

A good way to get away from the crowds and still see many of the sights in and around Halifax. Informative guide with a solid local background, including several areas not mentioned on the itinerary. Most enjoyable and would recommend this tour.

I booked online with Karl. He was responsive and friendly. We had our tour with him today. My in laws are in their 80's. He took great care of us, especially helping them in and out of the Jeep and making sure they didn't have to walk too far. The Jeep was comfortable and he took us around missing all the crowds which was fantastic! This was a great 5 hour tour and I highly recommend. Awesome tour guide who kept us entertained the whole time! (And was a great driver!)

Date: Oct 4/17

A very delightful and informative tour. Karl was extremely accommodating and adjusted the tour so that we saw scenic areas and did not spend so much time riding from one spot to another. He made reservations at a small local restaurant, Rubarbs, for lunch. The seafood was delicious & the restaurant unique and very reflective of the scenic area. Karl is a delightful gentleman and shares his wealth of knowledge in a very interesting manner. I would definitely tour with him again.

Tons of fun, Karl was great, friendly and took us to many off the beaten paths. It was great to understand the way of life of the fishing villages on the way to Peggy's Cove...we saw beautiful coves, water, boats and places along the way!! Karl Rocks!!

Fantastic day with Karl. He really knows the area and anticipated our every question. He took us to many quaint fishing villages of the beaten path and away from throngs of tourists. Make sure you book Karl for a great day seeing Nova Scotia

I took this tour during my 7 hour layover in Halifax. I had just landed off a red eye from the UK and wanted to make the most of my short time there. This was my first time in Halifax and Karl utilized my time better than I could have imagined.He took me to all the touristy type places as well as some off the beaten path. We had lunch at a wonderful deli and chatted for a while about the area. I will be forever grateful for this experience! Thanks so much Karl and sorry I was a zombie near the end there!
