This is a different and fun way to see some of the landmarks in Halifax. Lovely clear and informative commentary throughout. Booked in advance on line and very stress free. To see the city from both aspects, land and sea, is very interesting.More

The Barbour hopper took us into the harbor for a view of the city Afterward they gave us a sightseeing tour of the city and the Citadel. The guide was very informative and gave us a brief history of Halifax.
