Out tour of Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Peggy's Cove (amongst other places) was just fabulous. Bruce was very informative and caring - making sure we got regular stops for coffees and restrooms etc.

Plenty time where we could stroll about in various places too - meaning a great mixture of Bruce showing us photo opportunities etc. and us being able to explore a little, get coffee and take more photos!

The day was about 11 and a half hours long - which sounds a long time - but it flew as it was son interesting and the scenery was just amazing!

Would thoroughly recommend Bruce to anyone wanting a tour of the Halifax NS area!

If and when we visit Halifax again we'll be booking Bruce again for a different adventure!

Get to see a lot with this tour. Bruce is very well organized exactly what you will see. If you love instagram photos, you will love this tour. Bruce will point out exact photo shots for you to take but not a lot of flexibility to take other photos or do more things. If you are good to go with the flow and want to see a lot, this is a great tour, along with a great value.

The tour was fantastic; well thought of and thoroughly planned. We enjoyed our time at Lunenberg, Peggy’s cove and Mahone Bay.
Bruce is very punctual, considerate and knowledgeable. He covered small details about the place in such a short time. Overall very happy.

Bruce’s tour was fantastic. His vehicle is spacious and comfortable. Bruce is very knowledgeable and punctual. The tour was planned out perfectly and we saw so many beautiful spots that the cruise ship excursions would not have taken us to. The pricing is extremely reasonable for a private tour. Would 100% recommend.

Had the opportunity to see sights and stop for photos that a larger tour would not have allowed. Our group of three enjoyed the day touring with Bruce and learning about the area. Would highly recommend going this route if you have a full day to give to it. We fell in love with beautiful Lunenberg and a later hours visit to Peggy’s Cove allowed for photos with no other tourists in the background!

We did this as a shore excursion from our cruise ship. Bruce was absolutely terrific. He has a truly extraordinary knowledge of facts, dates and places, and shares sights and history in an interesting way. He is an excellent, safe driver. He provided a really memorable experience. There were four in our party and we fit comfortably in his mini-van and everyone had good views. He stops and gives good photo suggestions. I highly recommend Bruce for this tour.

We had a very thorough tour and visited everywhere in between Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and Peggy's Cove. It was an 11 hour day! Bruce is very knowledgeable and provided lots of opportunities for photos.

We arrived via cruise ship and Bruce met us on time at the terminal and was very organized and thorough. Word of caution is that this is a long day so watch your time if you have a deadline to be concerned about. Bruce was very accommodating and adjusted the schedule to basically cover everything and still return to the city with no issues. It was a very enjoyable day.

Bruce was an excellent tour driver. You travel in his mini van. Four of us went to Peggy’s Cove and Luenberg for one of the best most informational and fun tours ever. This was not a cheap tour and worth every penny! Highly, highly recommend!!!

The highlight was that we got safely back to our cruise ship. We thought that with 6 hours, we would be able to help decide our itinerary. No way! We drove up and down neighborhood streets in Halifax, giving us some interesting information, but Bruce also pointed out every "burning bush" plant between Halifax and Peggy's Cove.

We asked questions about real estate and business in Halifax, questions that have been asked on every tour I've ever been on, and be said, "I'm not the one to ask about those things." He had a specific dialogue that he couldn't change.

If you're a photographer, and have a strong stomach, this might be for you...he drove on almost every side street, showing photo ops, we got some great photos, but also, some of us had serious car sickness!

The hours trip from Halifax to Peggy's Cove took three hours!

I won't be using his services again!
