Excellent communication pre-tour with the owner Leila who was also our tour guide for the day. Four hour tour took in all the highlights we asked for in a comfy roadster. Laila was a great guide giving just the right blend of information, advice and free time to explore ourselves. The wine tasting of Nova Scotia wines including Tidal Bay - their appellation wine - at the Finer Diner was simply wonderful. The visit to the Titanic graveyard was very moving and definitely worth doing.

Richard was our guide for the day and what a wonderful day it was. We began with lunch at Luckett Vineyard, wine tasting, a tour of the vineyard and we got to use the ;phone booth in the middle of the vines with original rotary dial phone. We continued on to Mercaor where we not only had wine tasting but a tour of the processing room, saw the barrel room and even met the owner. Our guide at Mercator was very knowledgeable of not only the vineyard but the area, history of vineyards coming to the area and the quality of wines in Nova Scotia. Our final stop was Planters Ridge. Again our guide was very informative and friendly. She grew up in the area and provide wonderful insight to living in Nova Scotia. Sadly we had to leave the beautiful rolling hills, vineyards up the side of the hills, fall colors and cool weather to return to the port. Richard was a wonderful driver, very knowledgeable about traffic flow ensuring we arrived in plenty of time before all aboard. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys wine. The scenery is absolutely beautiful

We thoroughly enjoyed this small personal tour with an informed host/driver and a delightful senior couple from Australia. So much more pleasant than a big tour bus because we were able to really take in each of the stops at our own pace. It was very moving and educational visiting the various disaster sites and although crowded Peggy's Cove was a wonderful not to miss experience. A nice lunch together in a small local setting gave us more time to get to know each other and our host to provide us with more information from his extensive knowledge base. Highly recommended.

Our guide, was wonderfully knowledgeable and fun. She helped us to get to know the other couples on the tour. It was a great laid back atmosphere with great wine and food!. Pick up and drop off very convenient. So glad I went and had a designated driver. We bought wines and gifts for others and ourselves.

Following a vacation in Halifax, Nova Scotia, three years earlier we returned with the intention of doing what we could not on our previous visit. First on our list was to book a tour we previously had to cancel and an extra tour with Go North tours. We did the Between the Vines and Lobsters and Lighthouses tours. Both trips were very different but brilliant. Laila is so interesting to listen to and it was so lovely to meet her again. Thank you Laila.
