After spending most of the latter part of a day with Geordie on the Picture Perfect Tour, I feel a special connection to Nova Scotia! I heartily recommend his tours of the Halifax area without reservation!
My sister and I booked excursions of one type or another at every stop on the Oct 14, 2017, of a recent cruise between NYC and Halifax. We joined the Picture Perfect Peggy's Cove sunset lighthouse tour at Halifax that was initially set up by a fellow cruiser we connected with on a cruise review and chat site; so we felt we might really be taking a chance! Not so; we were 100% satisfied with the entire experience.
Although independent tours arranged outside of the cruise line can be a little intimidating, we found our experience with Geordie of Picture Perfect to be most accommodating. He picked us up in his Mercedes-Benz Sprinter at the Halifax cruise dock just as appointed and dropped us off again with no problems -- as promised.
As for the day-long experience, it was delightful. We had seven total tourists traveling with us in the van: two married U.S. couples, a single traveler from Switzerland, and my sister and I. It wasn't long before Geordie's affable spirit had all of us laughing and joking as old friends. Among the group, there were experienced photographers with fancy cameras and bags of equipment, as well as at least half of us with our iPhone cameras. Geordie, our driver and guide, is clearly an experienced photographer, but he offered as much time and attention to the iPhoners as he did to the folks who knew what they were doing!
Sunset at Peggy's Cove was just as advertised! It was spectacular. Geordie ran from guest to guest, ensuring that each of us got the shot we had hoped to, as well as some we hadn't dreamed of. He was equally attentive to offering a steady hand up and down glacial boulders, pointing out warm hideaways in breezy conditions, and making sure every guest had a great experience.
If you travel to Halifax for any reason, I'd recommend Picture Perfect Tours. I can't imagine a more accommodating guide than owner/operator Geordie. (And I am NOT his mom!)
