My boyfriend and I had the best experience on this tour. Jeff was so knowledgeable of the whole province and gave us so many stories to feed off of. As first time guests in Halifax, he gave us the best experience. Jeff picked us up and dropped us off at our stay and gave us great tips when viewing Lunenberg of where to go and what to do. Peggy’s Cove was also very pretty! Great 9-5 experience leaving you with plenty of time to grab dinner once you get back.

Jeff Babineau was our guide, and he knows a lot about the areas. We really enjoyed our time with him, and he made additional stops on our excursion to show us the local fishing harbors, etc. His lobster roll recommendation was excellent, and the transportation van was very comfortable with excellent windows to view the countryside. It was a great day seeing Halifax and Peggy's Cove and Jeff was an excellent guide.

Enjoyed our time with Reg yesterday driving around the Grand Pre area. The scenery was beautiful. Reg was knowledgeable of the local history and joy to be with. If you enjoy Canadian history, I would recommend this tour

Wonderful day with in the Annapolis Valley and Halls Harbour/Bay of Funday. Also stopped at a lookout point and had lunch at Lucketts Vineyard. Talked to the owner who was stocking shelves in the tasting room. What a wonderful place, and a wonderful tour. Thank you Reg for showing us around.
If you want a small group tour not like the big bus tours pick Anchor Tours.

Jeff was so knowledgeable. The information he told us about the Titanic, the cemetery, etc., we would have never learned by reading a few books on the Titanic. He was so patient with our small group when we asked him questions. Even when we were at the cemetery and people that were not in our group starting asking him questions, he had no problem answering their their questions.

I would highly recommend Jeff and Anchor Tours!

Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove are must-go experiences to have in Nova Scotia. Beautiful place and we love the landscape, houses and the lake.
Jeff is definitely a superb guide who has tonnes of knowledge on its history, stories and the people.
Highly recommend this tour!

The trip to Lunenburg and Mahone Bay was excellent. Our tour guide Reg was knowledgeable and kept us entertained for the whole journey. I don't usually go on tours but thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Anchor Tours.

We were a group of 8 and booked with Jeff. He was very informative, friendly and flexible and has a wealth of knowledge about the History of Halifax and area. His touring vehicle was very comfortable and perfect for sightseeing! We started our tour of Eastern Canada with this day tour and it was a great base for us to find other areas to explore. An awesome private tour, worth every penny!
