My husband and I had scheduled two tours with Paul-this was the second. Paul really knows the best places to give guests a taste of the Annapolis Valley. The van he uses is also very comfortable. For the wineries, the highlight of the wineries was the 1365 Church Street Vineyard & Winery. We also had lots of great photo opportunities-including two nesting bald eagles. This tour is a 'Must Do' when in Halifax.

My husband and I had booked this tour. We learned so much about Halifax and interesting details about Halifax. Paul is a wealth of information, such as the Halifax Explosion and Halifax's role in the Titanic disaster. Paul takes a real interest in his guests and is warm and personable. Well worth the money!

Make this tour your FIRST activity when you visit Halifax. Paul will give you not only the big picture, but wonderful details that you'll remember the rest of your time there. His knowledge and passion for all things Halifax will better enjoy your visit. It's one of the best things you'll do there. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Make this tour your VERY FIRST thing you do in Halifax! Paul's knowledge and passion of all things Haligonian (strange word, I know, but it's correct) will give you not only a simply wonderful time, but a great foundation for everything else you will do there. Paul knows everything there is to know about Halifax and you cannot go wrong with his tour. He'll even buy you lunch. (Okay, I made that part up, but he will take you across the ferry to HAVE a great lunch...) Not only is Paul a fantastic tour guide, he's a super guy that you will enjoy and always remember. TAKE THIS TOUR!

The South Shore tour was the final of the 3 tours I did with Paul (also did Annapolis Valley and Historic Halifax). Tour starts with a drive out to Peggy's Cove. Gorgeous rocks on a jurrasic looking shore with a charming small light house. From there went to Lunenburg which is a charming fishing village with many great places to eat and a rich history. Also went through Mahone Bay. Paul fills the day with historical facts and many recommendations. Had around 2 hours in Lunenburg on one's own which allowed time for a great lobster and clam chowder lunch (Salt Shaker) and seeing beautiful churches and homes. Highly recommend Paul McNeil for this tour and his others.

My time in Halifax was very rainy. I was there for a conference and limited days for sightseeing. Despite heavy rain on my day to see the city (did also do 2 tours before and after the confernce with Paul before and after the conference to South Shore and Annapolis), Paul showed me and my colleagues the city. He takes you to all the top sights (Public Gardens, Citadel, Dartmouth, cemeteries, etc.) and knows the city and its history thoroughly, In places where the rain was too hard to get out, he stopped and showed videos of the place. Luckily was not raining for the Gardens and fairly minimal for Citadel. Paul is incredilby knowledgable, professional, and kind. I highly recommend.

Annapolis Valley was the 1st of 3 tours a colleague and I did with Paul. Paul is highly professional, knowledgeable, and later would find out incredibly caring and kind. Started with the Bay of Fundy and then saw bald eagles, got delicious gelato at a place that was not yet opened but the owner opened when she saw Paul arriving, and then delicious wineries and cheese. At lunch, I noticed my phone was missing and Paul traced steps back, called repeatedly, and even took me to a couple of phone companies when it was obvious my phone was gone. Did not get to do the final part of the tour but Paul went almost 2 hours over trying to help me find and replace the phone. Never saw someone go so out of his way to help. Luckily I had booked his other 2 tours in coming days (see other reviews).

Paul McNeil's small group historic tour of Halifax was the best tour we did during our cruise from Montreal to Boston. When I read the description of the tour on Paul's website and then the reviews on TA I knew this was the one for us. Paul met us in the parking lot at the pier. We were a group of 8 and very comfortable in the van. Paul uses a centrally mounted monitor to visually assist in his narrations. To say this tour was extensive would be an understatement as Paul took us everywhere while constantly filling our brains with more and more historical facts.
One goes to Halifax knowing about the Titanic and how the Carpathia and other ships brought the remains of the dead here for identification. What I did not know was that even in death the way people's remains were treated depended on their class. We visited the cemeteries and saw the marked and unmarked graves.
I admit I did not know about the Halifax Explosion in December 1917 and to me learning about this devasting event has sparked my interest into researching more into it now that I have learned so much from Paul. This part of the tour was the most interesting to me.
The stop for lunch at Evan's Seafood on the water in Dartmouth was an excellent choice and was a good value for fresh seafood, also the view was great.
My only suggestion would be for Paul to speak a little slower. I understand he had a lot of information to get out to us in a limited amount of time but we didn't get everything he said.
This was a great tour and the one I would recommend to anyone visiting Halifax and looking for an overview of it's history from it's founding to modern day.
