This was a fun, quick tour. Chris was a great host and offered interesting facts about Halifax. We will do this again when we bring our kids back to Nova Scotia. This was fun for couples but children would enjoy this also (you’re always moving and lots to see).

Totally different way to see a city an experience not to be missed.

Great way of combining a bus tour of Halifax with a harbour tour of the same.

The amphibious vehicle is wonderful as are the driver and the tour guide. Their enthusiasm and knowledge is infectious and a pleasure to enjoy.

You get to see all of the key city features as well as a brief dip into the harbour front.

Brilliant way to spend an hour.

Loved the Harbor Hopper (duck boat ride). It was 45 - 60 minutes. Driver was exceptional maneuvering narrow streets with a lot of traffic. The guide was funny and shared so much about her hometown Halifax. Caught the amphibious vehicle on the waterfront on the side of Waterfront Warehouse. What a great time! Everyone onboard was super happy with this fun tour of Halifax.

I went on a different tour with a different company and I learned so much more on the Harbor Hopper!

At first, our 8 year-old wasn’t too keen on the idea of going on a “boat”. Our teen was okay with it. At the end of our tour, the 8 year-old wanted to go again and the teen was impressed by the history lessons that our guide, Holly, gave us!!! The teen said he didn’t realize there was so much history in this city and Holly made it so interesting!!

Highly recommend this!!!!

Took a good friend on a tour of the city while they were in town. Our guide was charismatic, knowledgeable, and inviting, and it was a great way to give a fun overview of the city. I'd recommend starting with a Harbour Hopper Tour in the morning, getting breakfast or coffee at one of the many incredible restaurants and cafes on the waterfront, and then planning the rest of your day based on what interested you from the tour.
