  • We only had one day to see the city and this was a good option! Very funny and knowledgeable guide and the water portion was a hoot! By chance we discovered the little train in the same parking lot wh...  more »

  • Great tour! We were in a bus with a very few people but it was fun. Best way to get a quick tour of Halifax. Enjoyed the harbour cruise part as well. I would recommend this.
  • I've never done a bus tour before and didn't really think it would be my thing but I had a lot of fun! It was a great way to see some attractions and get ideas of what I wanted to do next. It was also really fun transitioning to the water and seeing some of the waterfront and downtown from there. I do wish the part being on the water was a bit longer but overall we had a great time and I think it was worth the cost. It also helped that we had really nice weather. It was a super hot day but when you're on the bus it was actually quite breezy and nice.
  • Oh my, so much fun. We went as a small group despite the rain, as we wanted to see an overview of the city and check out the harbor. They have an awesome team of staff; right from the booking staff to, the tour guide, to the driver - all were very friendly and helpful. Such a neat experience to be able to go from land to water in the same vehicle. Definitely a must do when visiting Halifax!
  • I worked for the Harbour Hopper for one season. This was an amazing opportunity and I would highly suggest the tour for you and your family. Of course there are some obvious safety concerns but the staff is always very descriptive on the safety procedures for everybody’s benefit. Price is high, but the novelty of riding around in a LARC5 makes it entirely worth it. The tour is just under an hour which is a perfect time to see the entire city. Staff is always friendly and great. Make sure to get to the tour 30 mins early so you can get your seat of choice. Get Hoppin’!
  • It is an amphibious vehicle. It moves over the land and sea. It brought us to all of the stops we wanted to see in downtown Halifax as well as part of the harbor. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city. Her commentary was very informative. She was so friendly. While having dinner at one of the outdoor restaurants within the harbor area, at the end of the tour, then someone came by and said hello. I looked up to see that it was our guide. I was very impressed.
