This is a really excellent way of seeing Halifax and environs. The various tours (available all year round) take you round the city or to places along the coast, including famous beauty spots. The tour guide, Geordie, is a professional photographer who knows exactly the right places to take you for those out-of-the-ordinary shots. Without being intimidating or interfering, he really shows you how to 'look' so that you end up seeing so much more than you were expecting. I did the tours to the Eastern Shore and to Peggy's Cove, both of which were fantastic and that I'd recommend to anyone, whether an enthusiastic photographer or just someone who takes snaps. I took all my photos on my iPhone and they came out superbly. You don't need expensive camera equipment to get great shots, and Geordie is incredibly helpful on tips to get the picture right. Highly recommended!

Hi profcatherine, thank you for mentioning that you don't need a fancy camera to get great shots. Thank you for staying a little longer in NS and making the most of your work-cation! All the best and enjoy your travels (& our winter) throughout Canada.

Literally cannot recommend this company highly enough!

I had an incredible day, learned so much about how to use my camera and came away with a beautiful combination of arty and shamelessly touristy! This is a fabulous way to see a bit of Nova Scotia, and Geordie has uncovered some absolute gems that aren't in the tourist brochures. One of the best days of my trip.

This tour was tremendous. Even though it rained during the first part of our tour it did not stop us in any way. I learned so much about taking pictures that I could not wait to get home to delve into it more. The sights were terrific - I would take this tour every time I visit the area - I know I would learn something new!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Thanks Chuck & Mary, a little bit of rain wasn't going to stop us and Ralph with Lunenburg Walking Tours was a gem! So glad you both enjoyed our day along the South Shore and we hope you visit our part of the north Atlantic again soon.

This is your opportunity to have an amazing time in great company - the guy who runs the tours is so nice and gentle - to take amazing pictures and visit places only a few locals know. I had a great time, it was absolutely worth going on the tour!

I had the pleasure in taking Georgie's Peggy's Cove tour on a recent visit to Nova Scotia. Having been to Peggy's Cove before, I knew about the gorgeous scenery but what a difference to go there with a guide as fun as Geordie! He showed us how to make the most of our photography, took us to special nearby coves where we had an even better view of the Lighthouse, knew lots of fun stories about the local history and quirky stories about local things and people. He looked after us very well and we learned lots and shared many laughs along the way. If you want a local's insight into Halifax, Peggy's Cove etc, this tour is a MUST! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Thank so much Eva! It's perfect when we can showcase a different aspect of a landmark that people have experienced before. Glad you had a great visit and hopefully next year, you can make it 3 years in a row visiting NS!
