My partner and I booked this tour in advance. We did so based on the professionalism of the tour guide's website and the highly positive reviews we read on sites much like this one. As well, we're not one for big group tours, so thought a private tour with Bruce was the perfect ticket. And, at day's end, we couldn't... More

I booked the walking tour along with two other couples from the cruise critic. Bruce was waiting for us exactly where he said he would be, holding a sign with my name on it. The van was comfortable and Bruce was very knowledgeable. Bruce took us to many areas and one of the best in my opinion was the Cemetery/Titanic... More

Booked in advance with two other couples from cruise ship. Bruce catered for the varying interests of the group, was full of information and provided a list of stops made. Door to door service on a route large coaches couldn't have done. Excellent value for money for a seven hour tour undertaken in a relaxed manner with a tour of... More

Booked this tour in advance and got two other couples from cruise roll call. Bruce was a great guide and took us to many places that large buses just couldn't go. He helped compose photos as he also has a photography hobby, and provided a list of the stops we made. Very relaxed tour that lasted a good six hours.... More

Four of us travelled with Bruces Tours 30 September. The tour was to Peggy's Cove, but we were taken on a brief tour of Halifax, including the Titanic portion of a local cemetery. On the way to Peggy's Cove we were shown both East and West Dover along roads that coaches simply would not be able to travel. Bruce showed... More

I was traveling with friends on a Fall Colors cruise and wanted to avoid the crush of a ship's tour. We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Bruce! He made sure that we covered all the usual highlights of the area (Peggy's Cove, Titanic graveyard, and such). In addition, Bruce recognized that we were interested in photography and... More

My husband arranged for an all-day tour with Bruce after learning about it on Cruise Critic. Bruce met our group of 2 couples right at the cruise terminal. He began by showing us on a large map our tour plan for the day (Halifax, East Dover, West Dover, Peggy's Cove), and had bottled waters for each. We mentioned that in... More

I can not say enough good about Bruce, he was so easy to work with as my schedule kept changing due to a family situation at home. We did the Titanic History tour and the Bay of Fundy. Each time he went above and beyond to make sure we saw what we wanted to see and many times pointed out... More

I booked a tour of the Bay of Fundy with Bruce for my in-laws who were staying in Halifax for a few days. He can accommodate groups of up to 4-6 people, but this time it was just my two in-laws.
