Great tours of Nova Scotia
Aug. 2021
We took 2 tours with Paul - South Shore and the Annapolis Valley. We enjoyed both days with Paul and he gave us some wonderful history and toured us to some beautiful spots. He also had some excellent suggestions for lunch. We would definitely book with Paul again. Theses tours allowed us to see much more of Nova Scotia than we expected during our relatively short time there. We also arranged for Paul to take us to the airport on the day we left - a very comfortable trip in his Lincoln.

Paul was very punctual, informative and easy to spend the day with. While billed as a half day we were gone for 7 hours each day so we packed a lot of things in during the tours

Incredible Tour
Sep. 2020
This was an awesome tour and covered so much shorefront (and ground) over the course of the half day. It is absolutely worth it, and Paul is a terrific and very knowledgeable and professional guide. We did the tour on Labor Day and saw everything I wanted to see - Lunenberg, Mahone Bay, Chester, Peggy's Cove, the towns and shore along the way, and the Swiss Air memorial. Near Peggy's Cove, there was a stop at a lobster pound, Ryer & Ryer, for a lobster "show and tell" to see various sizes and colors of lobsters which was unexpected but a nice surprise. Paul was great in navigating and leaving plenty of time for photos and food along the way for the "full" Nova Scotia shore experience. I have so many photos I'm still sorting through at this point.

The shuttle is very spacious and nicely outfitted with a giant tablet screen that Paul uses to show clips and videos for the various sites, including some mini history "lessons". Lots of extra things like hand sanitizer, wipes and extra masks as well given the current times.

Lastly, while not advertised here, Paul also has cool stories of being tour guide to a number of celebrities during their Nova Scotia visits. They chose well as his tour is a real highlight.

Must-Do Half Day Tour of Nova Scotia South Shore
Sep. 2019
Wonderful tour, highly recommend! Great way to see a lot of sites over half a day, learn about Nova Scotia history and culture, and relax while someone else does all the driving! The tour agenda covers a nice mix: historical sites, picturesque towns, beautiful spots along the coast. Paul is a great tour guide. He is very knowledgeable on the area and the history, and he clearly cares about providing great service and experience for tour goers. This was one of the highlights of our vacation in Nova Scotia, a must do!

Enjoyable day!
Sep. 2019
We went on this tour 9/19 with Paul and had a wonderful day. Paul had a very informative film on during the ride out to our various destinations.
It was right after the hurricane and the destruction was evident all around the area.
We stopped at a waterfront restaurant and had a great lunch with the other couple on the tour.
We then drove by Peggy's Cove which was really crowded. None of us wanted to stop because it looked like a Tourist Trap and we ave many lighthouses in New England.
We stopped in the cute town of Ludenburg with beautiful sea sculptures on the lights and great views and restaurants.
It was well worth the money and Paul was very professional.
