I have done the Harbour Hopper a few times and learn something new each time. However each time you do get the same basic facts but depending on the tour guide they add their own flare too the tour. It is good way to see lots and learn lots about Halifax in a short amount of time. It is always a must do with people that come to visit.

We went on the 4:15 tour on August 21st, and the service was amazing. Both Abigail and Kristen (the tour guide and trainee captain) were amazing. Abigail was a fantastic guide, but Kristen really stood out. My mother uses a wheelchair but can walk short distances and they were incredibly accommodating to help her get up the stairs onto the vehicle comfortably. They also allowed us to store her wheelchair in the Harbour Hopper ticket/merchandise building, and when my mother got down the stairs after the tour, Kristen had run to get her wheelchair from the building and rolled it over so it would be waiting for her at the bottom of the stairs. She went above and beyond for us, and we were so grateful.

Excellent tour, the staff were fantastic and playful. Skillful acknowledgement of Mik’maq ownership, unceeded territory, and their history of halifax being not yet included in the tour. Great jokes.
