Andy Smith is a brilliant performer, delightful storyteller, and exceptional guide. I was delighted to deepen my knowledge of Halifax's surprising (and sometimes horrifying) history. A must for tourists, long-time Haligonians, and everyone between!

Was a very informational walk! Lots of great stories and view of the historic downtown. The host was very funny and easy to speak with. Very good for the price. Would do it again with friends.

Andy was great. Our family (3teens) loved it. Walking involved so wear appropriate footwear. Not an over taxing walk..as all down hill from start area. Interesting, some good history, good entertainment and humour too.

Visited from Hamilton Ontario. Andy is a skillfull story teller. His enthusiasm makes the stories come alive. Not only will you have a great time, but you will learn a lot about historic and present-day Halifax.
