We recently took the Top 10 Tour with Paula as our guide. She was absolutely fantastic! She was energetic, informative, and organized. Best of all, she was so nice and really gave the impression she loves both her job and the Saint John area. She kept everything moving smoothly and filled all the bus riding time with tons of information about the area. We would highly recommend both the tour and especially Paula to anyone!

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.

On May 31st we took the Saint John Scenic Trolley Tour and it was fanastic. Our tour guide Heather and her Driver were absolutely great. Thank you so much for showing us your Wonderful Historic & Clean City, last but certainly not least your people are equally wonderful
We were on the Norwegian Escape but purchased the tickets in the front lobby downstairs off the ship. The person who sold us the tickets was informative and courteous. But the two ladies who gave us the tour were the best! From taking our tickets up front to the end of the tour they were outgoing, super knowledgeable and a tag team riot. We learned a lot from them of the area and general history of where we were and where we were going. It was well worth the price of admission. Linda the driver and Jody the tour guide should be commended for a job well done. They work well together and are a wealth of knowledge and really funny too
