Very relaxing and enjoyable. Only issue is the distance back to the ship at tour end.

Other than the Bay of Fundy there really isn't a lot to do in this city.

St John is a quaint little city with an interesting loyalist history. We stopped at the city market, went to the reversing falls, and drove thru historical area's of the city. The guide was informative. We returned to the reversing falls at the end of the tour so we could see the rapids.

Very friendly city. Everyone we came in contact with were very nice and helpful. The jewel of this city is their central fire station. The Firefighters were interactive with visitors, and there's a fire museum on the second floor. There's alot of pubs in the city and some famous ones if that's your thing. There's a few tourist shops, but not as many as expected for a tourist port.

Roy took us on a 6+ hour tour in a very comfortable van. He was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He took us all the places on interest but avoided the times he knew the tour buses would be there. Took us to a great seafood restaurant in St. Martins. Although they were swamped, he called ahead and had a table outside waiting on us. There were 5 of us and his total charge was $300.
His tour was about the only positive thing I can say about the entire cruise.

We did the 10 Best of Saint John. This was a good tour. The best was going to St. Martins and seeing the sea caves. You also see a couple of covered bridges and some quaint little shops in a shiping cove. Old City Market was enjoyable but the rest we could have skipped.

It was nice to see the Bay of Fundy and the excursion was well organized. However, it was too short and too rushed. Certainly not worth the money we paid to Carnival. My advice, rent a car and do this on your own. The Bay of Fundy is beautiful.

Found out about Roy online and was happy when had had our port day available for a tour. His replies were prompt and he was right at the port when we arrived. He took us on a few stops right in St. John's before heading to St. Martin's to do the cave and part of the Fundy Trail. It was a nice tour and we couldn't go wrong with the price ($300 for close to 8 hours).
