We had not planned to do anything in St John but a local suggested this tour to us and it was great. Paul was our bus driver and he was very friendly and knowledgeable about this lovely city. He showed us alot of sights including the reversing falls and the City Market. Best $20 I ever spent and we were... More

We waked away from the cruise area and started walking towards town and discovered a city bus with a city employee giving a 2 hour tour for $20 a person. We quickly filled up with other cruisers and off we went. Paul our driver was very informative, Smart of the city to cash in on tourists for a fair price.... More

If you ever intend on going anywhere make sure to show up atleast 20 minutes early prior to the scheduled times. The drivers drive on there own schedules and will absolutely shave 10 minutes off there root if it means they can get a smoke break , very unreliable for those who have places to be or for those trying...

Thank you Paul! This is an inexpensive delight in a city filled with history, shopping, food and natural beauty. We easily found the bus a short walk from the pier and were welcomed by a great host. Price was only $20 per person and the tour was great. Does not take a great deal of the day and leaves you... More

We tried to book with Dave's Taxi Tours Guys before we left home and so glad they were sold out. Best deal came about when we where walking towards the city just to see what St. John had to offer and ran across this sign (see photo). It is very close to the ships dock maybe about 1/4 of a... More

We stopped in Saint John as part of a cruise. I read about this "City Tour" online and it seemed like a great deal (as compared to shore excursions). On the day we were docked, the bus operated 3 tours. Try to get there at least 15 minutes before the tour or else it'll be too full. The price was... More

This tour cannot be booked in advance, which is the only downside, as if there a lot of ships in port there is a chance you may not be able to get on the tour. The bus stop is located just a couple of blocks from the cruise pier, an easy level walk. The tour guide was brilliant and really... More

When our cruise ship docked into St. John we hadn't planned an excursion and figured we would just see what we found. On the way down the street towards town from the pier we found this door. Only $20 US. What a bargain! Harold our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Best value of our entire trip.

Rod was a wealth of knowledge and took us to many interesting places with great descriptions. The only thing that could have been a setback was the interesting trip to St. Martins and it's caves which he said was not part of the tour but we showed Rod the itinerary and he took the extra time to take us there...
