Informative tour, was pretty fun! Learned a lot about the downtown, and also got to see things from the water which was super cool. The "bus" drives from the land into the water which was really neat. Even as adults, we enjoyed this tour!

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.
