What people are saying about Nova Scotia

Fantastic experience!

This was a wonderful way to explore Halifax! I'd never been on a Segway before but the training/practice before the tour got me comfortable (and stable) before we headed out. It was a warm day so zipping around on the Segways sure beat walking, and we were able to cover more ground in less time. Our tour guide, Cale (? spelling), was bubbly and informative and she made the tour fun with her insights. I'd book this tour again in a heartbeat!

The tour was great ! Jake was amazing! So friendly and told us every details during the 4 hours tour. Very personalize tour that includes pick up / drop off at your hotel , so very convenient. The tour includes the most important highlights in Halifax ! Great service and totally recommended !

It was just what I was looking for. After spending the beginning of the week at a work function, I just wanted to relax and unwind before heading home to Ontario. I book a short tour out to Peggy's Cove and a tour of the Citadel....it was fantastic. Will definately recommend

Our guide was enthusiastic, professional, knowledgeable and funny. My wife and I would use your services again in a heart beat.
