My adult family of 4 recently did a day trip with Alternative Routes and we were thrilled to have had this tour experience with a local expert! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, gave us plenty of rest stops and photo opportunities and we all thoroughly enjoyed getting out of the city and seeing other sights outside of Halifax. We were picked up and dropped off at our AirBnB so although it operates as a Hop on hop off, it isn't like other ones you do as this is way more personalized. We did the tour with a separate elderly couple and everyone was able to comfortably share the air conditioned vehicle, make sure they got all the stops in they wanted to, etc. Highly recommend this company and their communication was always prompt. Thank you for the wonderful memories :)

Sam was a fun and energetic tour guide. It was not information heavy or overwhelming, yet she has lots of little tidbits of interesting information along the way.

Alternate Routes is aptly named. We went off the beaten path to see sandpipers at the Bay of Fundy, which was a highlight of the trip. Sam was flexible, providing options for the group to decide on, and the small group size made it easy to meet some new people.

Sam was accommodating for pick ups and drop offs. I 10/10 recommend this tour!

I had previously done the Nova Scotia tour with Sam and loved it so much I came back for the PEI tour. It was another great experience. Sam packed so much fun and adventure into the time we were there.

We got to visit Charlottetown and spend the first evening browsing and exploring. Sam arranged accommodations at a very nice local inn.

The next day, we went fishing and cooked and ate the fish we caught right on the boat. It was the best fish I've ever had.

We followed that up by visiting one of the lovely PEI beaches and enjoyed lobster right on the beach.

The final day was spent visiting the Anne of Green Gables museum and getting some Holmans ice cream and handpies from the Handpie Co. Highly recommend both of those.

Overall it was a fantastic time. I can't wait to go back and do another tour.

This was my favourite part of my vacation in Nova Scotia. Sam was friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and adaptable. She's spontaneous and willing to modify the tour to fit the people on it and what they would like to do.

Any time I will be back in Nova Scotia, I will not hesitate to book with her again. And with that spontaneity, I am sure that the next time (and the time after that) will be different experiences and I will never get bored.

Plus she introduced me to beach peas. Give peas a chance lol.

It was our first time visiting Halifax, and I wanted a tour where we could see as much as possible in one day, and this tour delivered. The weather was perfect, especially for May, which made being outside to see the sights even better. Our tour guide Sam was amazing and surpassed my expectations. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable and we learned a lot from her during our drive. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Halifax!

A great way to see the more well-known places in the area, as well as the less famous but nonetheless lovely places. Sam will take you to hidden gems and entertain you with her interesting stories throughout the whole trip.

I hopped off in Lunenburg and stayed for 2 nights before I hopped on again to finish the tour with her... I think this is what sets her tour off from the others, being able to stay longer in a place along the route.

Two couples booked this full day tour. We loved Peggy’s Cove and the allowed time to tour here was plenty.
We could have skipped the Queensland Beach tour and shorten the Annapolis Valley tour to allow more time in Lunenburg. We felt the time allowed in Lunenburg was not enough. By the time we arrived in Lunenburg it was lunchtime and trying to find a place to eat was difficult and had to wait in line 20min to be seated. We actually just had enough time to eat and the time to explore was limited so we were a bit disappointed.
Our driver, Ian, was very knowledgeable and kept our interest. He was always ready for our questions and had all the answers. His was a great tour guide.
We just found this tour to long in the vehicle; more than half the time was spent on the road.
Nova Scotia is a beautiful place!!

I truly loved the experience! Sam was right on time and picked us up right in front of our hotel. Despite the rainy weather on the day of our tour, Sam just knew where to take us and turned that into a fantastic fun day! She was very lively and knowledgeable and I learned so much about Nova Scotia! We ended the day with a wine tasting and went back with amazing stories and beautiful memories! I also really enjoyed interacting with the three new people in the group. Also, would like to mention that everyone in the group was super respectful and wore masks while inside the van during the tour. I was stress-free and made some of the best memories on this trip! Whether you’re traveling solo or with family, it’s a great tour to do!

Sam was incredibly informative, friendly, and knowledgeable, she was definitely made for this type of work. My only complaint would be we had a full van and it was tight fitting and since there is a lot of driving in this tour it wasn’t overly comfortable at all, I was the smallest so only fair for me to be in the middle in the back, I was offered other seats in the van but it would be unbearable for 3 above average sized people in the back.
I wish I would have known about their direct website could have saved myself some money (Hint, hint for those looking to book) if you want to see Halifax and some of the highlights you should give Sam a call she also carrys a ton of random facts which was AMAZING I loved the random facts. Learned alot of neat things about the area and much more.
