Paul is a very organized, well prepared tour guide. During the tour, he presented us numerous incredible detailed photos and details of the incidents that happened in this historic city. It was really nice of him to keep the stories of the people who involved in these tragic incidents, I would recommend this tour to anyone who has interest to know more about this beautiful place!

Was a great experience! Paul was extremely knowledgeable guide with a passion for his city. What was also enjoyable was the size of his group at 8 max 10 instead of a bus load size, this made the overall experience more personable. Highly recommend this tour!!!

It’s a challenge for a first-time visitor to navigate the city, its history and locations. Paul McNeil will take care all these difficulties with ease, humour and enthusiasm. He packed an incredible amount of information about monuments and architecture, as well the Halifax Explosion and the Titanic. Our small group travelled in a spacious, comfortable van equipped with excellent audio and video systems, providing historical context before arriving at important sites. “Hidden gems” and local lore made the city and its history come alive. Just a great day made special by our impressive guide!
