Fantastic tour. Larry was the best! We now know a lot more about Newfoundland. Now I know why the Canadian Legion flys the Union Jack!

Thank you to Ellis for a fantastic tour. Our tour exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend McCarthy’s to anyone visiting St. Johns. It would be unfair to say we had a favourite spot - we enjoyed the entire experience.

Three couples traveling together - all seniors. Just finished two of the day tours - full day Irish Loop on Sat & 1/2 day St John's & Cape Spear on Sunday. We enjoyed both days immensely with Steve on Saturday & Ellis on Sunday. They were knowledgeable, well informed & entertaining with many stories & local anecdotes. Would highly recommend this company.

I did two tours with McCarthy's Party at the end of September 2022 - the half day tour around St. John's, Cape Spear, Signal Hill and Quidi Vidi and the full day tour of the Irish Loop. Both were very well organized and had the right amount of bus riding and walking for me. Very enjoyable and I recommend this company highly.

We took the Historic St. John's and Cape Spear Tour. There was a lot of rain, but we had a wonderful time despite that visiting places including Cape Spear, Signal Hill, Petty Harbor, Quidi Vidi, and more. Our tour took place in the late morning of August 9. Our guide was a former teacher. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He went out of his way to enhance our experience. And, he didn't watch the clock.

Travelled on a 12 day tour through Newfoundland and Labrador in August 2022 via McCarthy’s Party. Fabulous trip and time spent with 37 fellow travellers (including 3 of my siblings) and the experienced and fun tour guide (Michelle) and bus driver (Audrey). Highly recommend as a great way to see N&L and learn of its interesting history.

We are a group of 16 who was lucky enough to have a day trip with Gene and Steve through McCarthy's Party. From the St John's city tour to lunch at Petty Harbour and the fantastic hike along the East Coast trail, we loved every minute! Gene and Steve were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful - already looking at another trip next year. On a more sombre note, although we escaped the devastation of Hurricane Fiona where we were, we know that others in NFLD were not so lucky - our thoughts and prayers are with hem as they clean up and recover

I am a retired senior in my late seventies travelling on my own. I booked and took three separate McCarthy Party Day Tours during the recent week I spent in St. John’s. I’m so glad I did! I saw and experienced so much more than I would have on my own. A special thanks to Ellis (one half day tour) and Steve (two full day tours), my driver/guides, for making the tours interesting, informative, and fun.

Steve Gosse was our very knowledgeable and entertaining guide for our five days on the Avalon Peninsula. Visiting and learning about the many villages not far from St. John's. Quidi Vidi, Petty Harbour, Torbay, Ferryland, Brigus and Cupids. Braved the crashing surf at Renews-Bear Cove.Enjoyed a lovely boat ride out to Bird Island to view the puffins. We will most definitely return to see more of Newfoundland with McCarthy's.
