      Outstanding Winery Visits!
      Our tour guide and assistant were fantastic. We had a great visit in each winery - they are very impressive. The staff at each winery were the utmost professional and knowledgeable about their wines, the growing environment and varieties of wines. I’d highly recommend this tour

      Worse tour of our trip
      The was the worst tour of our vacation. First off the there were conflicting reports of people on the tour with different times to report so that started the tour 40 minutes late—bad move and should have been a sign. We specifically booked for the reviews of the tour guide Jonathan—we thought he was who we would get and we were under the impression it was a van tour. He emailed us numerous times to the point we were becoming friends and we were very excited about this tour. Well we get on a giant tour bus (not happy) and off we go. It’s a tour that’s to last 5 hours. The second stop we make is to a maple shop. We stop there a bus load of people with one employee and everyone need to use the restroom and wants coffee and souvenirs and one person is doing all of this (running late again besides the start time of 40 minutes). The tour guide is extremely boring, not engaging at all. The Peggy’s Cove stop was adequate but then we stop for lunch and the tour guide and bus driver have to wait tables. On the way back to the cruise terminal half of the bus is sleeping and not listening to the guide and we arrive back 90 minutes late — which is unacceptable. We had other plans which now are cancelled. When I emailed Jonathan Duru (general manager) questioning were we bumped from a private tour to a bus tour and complained; he did not answer the question. Now this is our experience if you like a bus tour where it takes 10 minutes for everyone to get off and then back on and a boring guide then this is for you.

      The Best Tour Guide in Halifax
      This was my third time putting a group together to tour Halifax Gardens, the Fort, the Titanic gravesite, Peggy's Cove, and wound up at Shaw's Landing for an incredible late lunch. Jonathan Duru is a master story teller, knows Halifax history, as well as the surrounding areas, and I consider his pricing to be very competitive, and about half of what a cruise ship wauld charge. I highly recommend Aberdeen Bus Tours and Jonathan Duru to anyone looking to know more about Halifax and the surrounding area.

      Unique tour to Fisherman's Cove
      We had a fantastic tour and enjoyed every moment. Jonathan is quite knowledgeable and an enjoyable person. His kindness is phenomenal. We had never been to the Cove and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The Cove is an authentic fishing village with lots of shops, restaurants, and of course, fishermen. Would we go again next time we are in Halifax? For sure, especially with Jonathan

      We didn’t get to go to the site of the 1917 explosion, the gardens, and didn’t even stop at the citadel. The guide was really informative but it was over priced.

      Beautiful Lighthouse
      We arrived in Peggy's Cove around 8.30am for our breakfast. The Fisherman Breakfast served was fantastic - red beans, salty fish cakes. After breakfast and before bus loads arrived, we had panoramic views of the coast and the lighthouse. I felt rather surreal as we were there 1 day after Cyclone Lee landfall in Nova Scotia. The rustic charms of the fishing village brought me down memory lane.

      Fun, educational, and lots of laughs
      I just got back from a work trip to Halifax! There were 30 of us going, and we were looking for a fun sightseeing/team bonding tour. I stumbled upon Aberdeen, and I’m so happy I did! Jon, the tour guide, is great! He’s very responsive when planning, and he is a lot of fun during the tour. Everyone raved about the thought that went into where he decided to take us, and our trip wouldn’t have been the same without Jon. Please consider booking your tour with Aberdeen next time you’re in the Halifax area :)

      This is a great opportunity to see Nova Scotia beyond Halifax. Our driver Jonathan was very informative and helpful. The stops were well chosen including the historic, scenic and wineries. Poor weather intervened but this was a trip which I recommend highly.

      Nice walk and scenary
      We drove to Peggy's cove from Halifax. And it's a lovely drive. The village itself is walkable and the tourist information center is really nice and informative. We got lots of great pictures here as it's very scenic. On the way to Peggy's cove, we stopped and ate at this place called Shaw's lobster shack. It was right on the water, and that was really good. Oh, and they say, "Piggy's " instead of Peggy's here. It's really cute.

      Jonathan was an amazing tour guide. He really made our tour and exploration of Halifax that more special. If we were to come back to visit we would 100% do another tour with him.

      Adorable village
      This village is super cute and what a delight for the eyes! I wish it wasn’t so busy but I don’t suppose that’s reasonable to expect of a major tourist destination.

    Absolutely fantastic trip! There was no way I could find a rental during my trip and this was such a fantastic alternative! Jonathan gave us an excellent tour, highlighted all the best areas (especially some amazing out of the way spaces) and really personalized the experience for us. Truly appreciated the relaxed atmosphere of the trip and getting to see even more than expected. 100% would do this tour again for my next trip.

    Wow a trip can be wonderful if the guide is fun . Jonathan made Lunenberg beautiful & Dont forget to eat the lobster roll near the Peggy's cove ..choose a day which is less foggy to enjoy the best views of lunenberg and Mahone Bay ... If possible book a Lunenberg whale watching tour (which we missed ) ..

    Booked this tour semi-last minute and it was a highlight of the trip! Jonathan was very knowledgeable and made the entire day enjoyable. The group was small so at times it felt like a private tour; we were able to extend stays and add stops based on our group's preferences. All three stops were gorgeous. 10/10 recommend seeing these sites when you're in Halifax and using this company to see them!

    Peggy’s cove is beautiful and not to miss. But if you have time and a car stop in at Cove Gallery. 20 Irwin Hubley rd. This gallery contains one very talented man’s life’s work. Paintings, carvings, jewelry. It is out of this world. Majestic, understated and he captures the essence of the ocean and those that live by it. A must see.

    What an enjoyable day! Peggy’s Cove exceeded my expectation, but Jonathan and our crew of five travel companions made the day delightful. Jonathan has the perfect personality for a tour guide. He is knowledgeable, has a great sense of humor and flexible with providing his charges with options regarding scheduling. We stayed a little longer at Peggy’s Cove because of some repairs that were happening. He understood that getting to the lighthouse would take us seniors a little more walking time and wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to safely get there with time to actually enjoy the beauty of the Cove. Then he gave us plenty of time to enjoy our lunch at Lunenburg and an informative drive back to Halifax. My husband and I couldn’t have been more pleased with our tour and the wealth of interesting tidbits about the area that Jonathan provided.

    A fun and informative day trip! Our guide Jonathan was great. He was very funny, flexible in the schedule (especially when weather got bad), and able to make some good recommendations for things to see and places to eat. We never felt rushed and had plenty of time to take in the numerous sites. All in all, a great tour.

    This tour to Peggy’s Cove and Lunenberg was an excellent way to see the amazing coastal towns on the coast. The tour guide Johnathon was a wonderful local guide with great insights and fun stories to share. It was a memorable day out and I highly recommend this tour for families, singles and couples alike!!

    What a great day! Jonathan was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and so entertaining!! We not only stopped at the advertised locations, but a few others as well. It was a long day, but we had fun, saw some amazingly beautiful scenery and laughed so much at Jonathan's stories. This excursion is well worth the money. If you are visiting Halifax, be sure to visit Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay with Jonathan.

    Jonathan was a great tour guide. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip in a small 8 person van. We docked in Halifax on a Holland America cruise ship at 9 and were gone for the whole day to Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove and Mahone Bay.

    My only suggestion is the pickup location be closer to the pier. People with mobility issues have a very difficult time making their way to the Westin Hotel even though it is an 8 minute walk for an average person.

    Thank you Jonathan. I would highly recommend this company!!!
