Did the Historic Halifax Photo Tour last Friday morning/afternoon with Geordie.
First time in Halifax so it was a good way to have an introduction to the area and take photos as well! The group was small (4) so it was perfect for Geordie to go in depth with all of us and our iPhone's and DSLR. It was good he took us off the beaten path and learn some neat history. Van was great (minus a little incident, Geordie knows ;) ), drinks were provided and we even saw his little daughter on the tour! :) Can't recommend this tour enough for photos, history or just a nice day out with good people! Already looking forward to my next trip out there and trying some of his other tours. Thanks G and PPT!

Geordie took us on an amazing tour around Halifax and Dartmouth. He knows and appreciates his home and will show you things that are off the regular tourist stopping points. He will help you get the best photo shots. We will use him for sure if we come back.

We recently took two of the Picture Perfect tours and we were VERY pleased. Weather necessitated rescheduling, and Geordie was very accommodating. He kept in contact with us as to needed changes. He is an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge to share. We would highly recommend these tours.

Spent a great day exploring many of the off the beaten path sites in the Halifax area.
Geordie is a very knowledgeable and personable tour leader. He set a perfect pace and easily accommodated clients of all ages in a small group setting.

The sunrise tour to Peggy's Cove was not only a photography tour but a history lesson as well. Geordie is very well aquainted with the area and showed us some fantasic spots for photos. He explained camera functions and how to get the best shots of beautiful Peggy's Cove. We also learned about the history of settlement in the area. I got some fantastic photos to remember my stay in Halifax.
