David was our guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and provided a lot of interesting information to us. We will definitely recommend your tour in the future to friends that may decide to take this same trip.

We took a shore excursion to the Bay of Fundy with driver Eric and tour
guide Faye. We had a great time. Faye was very knowledgeable about the area
and history. We purchased a handmade souvenir from the little shop next to
the restaurant and forgot it on the bus. We thought we would never see it
again, but to our surprise it was delivered to the ship. We would like to
thank your employees for their concern and honesty.

My Mom and I wanted to reach out to you in praise of your amazing team and our wonderful experience on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. We were guests onboard RCI Anthem of the Seas and subsequently booked through their shore excursions online.
We had no idea this would be one of the best and most memorable tours of our trip due to Linda and Jody... not only were they very knowledgeable but they were above and beyond entertaining! The laughs just kept on coming and we considered ourselves very fortunate to have had them as our guide and driver.
What a pleasure! We will always remember Jody and Linda!

We took your Trolley around St. John tour on Oct 16th during our NCL cruise on the Norwegian Gem. Your guides Linda and Judy were outstanding. They were funny, knew the history and great at storytelling. We all had a wonderful time with them.
