I went to Halifax in July with my 2 sisters, niece and mother. We were celebrating my mothers 80th birthday by taking her to where it all started for us: PIER 21. I chose to use Paul, simply because of his rave reviews. Nobody referred him to me, but I had to believe that all those reviews were accurate. I... More

My wife and I had a couple of days in Halifax. Upon investigation I was told that Paul and his tour were the best for learing and seeing the history, architecture, and really the soul of the community. Our four hour tour turned into a six hour tour. The best part though was after the tour, as we walked through... More

I arranged a tour for 8 with fellow passengers aboard the Caribbean Princess, using the Cruise Critic forum board to solicit other passengers. This was a great way to meet other passengers ahead of the cruise, and to secure a vehicle from Paul McNeil. Paul was waiting for us at the agreed to time (9:30) with a passenger van that... More

Paul met us at our cruise ship and we left right on time. He is a wealth of information pointing out things on every corner. He made sure we were at the Citadel with time to see the changing of the guard and the cannon firing. Two tour buses came by right after the cannon had already gone off! Glad... More

We joined 3 other couples with Paul on a tour of Halifax. We were from a cruise ship and Paul's tour was very much cheaper. The weather was awful and the rain did not stop.

Unlike Quebec City, Halifax attractions are somewhat spread out. If you want to get a taste of everything and see the Titanic graves, this is the way to do it.
