Sable island is a difficult place to get to on a good day! Geordie was a top notch host and i felt he prepared me well for what to expect and I was wanting for nothing on the journey. We even had an award winning lunch out on the island ! Geordie was quite knowledgeable about our destination. I felt at ease to take leave of the group to explore on my own and also taken care of at the same time . Geordie’s plan for our trip was well thought out and was perfect - it really couldn’t have been better . He is very communicative -I highly recommend picture perfect tours .

Thank you so much Briana for your patience and perseverance in finally getting to Sable Island with us! As you know, this was our first foray to the 'Graveyard Of The Atlantic' and it won't be our last. The trip was absolutely magical - mostly because of you and everyone in our group made the journey so memorable. We really appreciate the kind words and we'll think of something even more fun to do next year!

Wow what a spectacular day, we could not have asked for a better guide or day. We were a group of 6 ladies in Halifax to celebrate a special birthday and this tour with Geordie was one of the highlights. He was wonderful from start to the finish of our adventure,he had graciously allowed us to join sunset tour he was conducting with a few others. One of our party had mobility issues she was given extra special care throughout the tour which we appreciated very much also Geordie’s generosity in lending one of his pieces of equipment absolutely made another of my girlfriends day. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area we were touring and kept us entertained all evening.
My goal was to come home with a few pictures that I would be able to frame and hang on the wall with Geordies’ patience and guidance I have several that I am proud to say I could frame. I will continue to use the tips and tricks he taught us while taking this tour
Please don’t hesitate on booking a tour with this company. From first contact to drop off at our hotel I was blown away with both the professionalism and east coast friendliness of Geordie and his staff.

Very personal and in-depth tour of Halifax, highly recommend. Geordie was knowledgeable of current city developments as well as historic events. The van was very comfortable for transport between stops.

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!)

Hi Dbendick - you just had me spit my coffee out laughing this morning at the last line of your review!!!

Genius and well played!

Thank you so, so much for the kind words and detailing the sunset excursion you had with us out at Peggy's Cove a few weeks ago. I only hope you'll both come back and visit Nova Scotia again soon!

Wow, what a terrific day. We chose to tour the beautiful and interesting Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. Our guide was Scotty Sherin, a professional photographer and serious surfer. Scotty was great in giving us tips to make our photos have that "special" look. He took us to beautiful landscapes and seascapes and some fishing villages where objects and scenes were begging to be photoed. We also did an early stop at an ocean inlet that gave us a surreal setting...fog and mist over the water and trees. Spectacular. All in all a wonderful tour...and no other tourists!

This was our fifth visit to Halifax and the best by far. I highly recommend Picture Perfect Tours in Halifax.

Thank you so much tourpro1 - I didn't realize this was your 5th visit to Halifax and our edge of the north Atlantic! The Eastern Shore is a forgotten stretch of Halifax that we happen to love and we're thrilled you enjoyed the beauty of that area as well. Thank you for the kind words and we hope to see you again on your 6th trip to Halifax!
