Took horse drawn wagon tour thru the ship, a wonderful relaxed way to see parts that you wouldn't see on the trolley or bus.

One of our favorite places! We took a tour with Bill Fleming of Bill's Taxi Tours, he also drives part time for Oli's Trolley, started his own business last year. He took us thru Arcadia National Park on back roads that only the locals usually use and the beauty was incredible. We toured for almost 5hrs and then he took us to the Dog&Pony restaurant for blueberry beer and the best lobster rolls we've ever had! Don't see Bar Harbor with anyone else, he is the BEST!

Toured Halifax with Halifax Taxi Tours and Les was our driver. We used them last year and really enjoyed it, This time, not so much. Les lacked the interest and personality of last year's driver and he missed some of the [laces we wanted to see. Peggy's Cove was unique as always and we enjoyed visiting again.

Joe from Roy's Taxi was our driver and tour guide. He and his wife just had a little girl and he was so sweet talking about his two kids. He also took us to some very photogenic spots that he knew since he was raised in the area. We were able to get to see the awesome swirling water of the Bay of Fundy and it is not to be missed. We went to St Martin's and had a wonderful time. Also visited the flowerpot rocks and the caves and were able to walk a good way into the caves. The tide comes in really quickly so you have to be careful. This is definitely on my "Bucket List" to visit again.
As an aside note, we visited St John last year, didn't take a tour, just walked around and didn't care much for it. Thanks to Cruise Critic folks, we booked the taxi tour and loved it!
