We booked this tour as soon as we saw our cruise itinerary. Karl Dias was great and easy to work with. We saw Oak Island, Peggy's cove, the Titanic graveyard ... Karl was entertaining, helpful, and knowledgeable. It was the best activity on our 9 day cruise.

Booked a private tour with Karl and Jim of Open Top Tours. We had a group of 8 and used a Jeep and SUV. The advantages of a private tour is going to see places a cruise ship tour would never stop. These guys were knowledgeable and great to be with. Can’t say enough about them and the tour

Thank you to Karl!! Truly enjoyed our time along the coast and bays! We went to Fairlawn cemetery, Terence Bay, Peggy’s cove and places in between. Remarkable landscape and I am not a fan of the 24+ passenger buses. Loved the one on one attention, and he was gracious to allow a few requests for my husband and me.

On a blustery day, October 18, 2018, Jim picked us up and our tour began. First we were introduced to the city of Halifax, parks and neighborhoods, downtown, harbor walk, university, historical points of interest, including a wee bit of history of where the term "loose lips sink ships" came from - Halifax. After, we were driven out to Prospect, a wonderful and off-the-beat fishing village, followed by an excellent lunch at Shaw's Landing (not a tour bus stop) en route to Peggy's Cove. All - wonderful. The blustery part comes from the fact that in one day we enjoyed sun, wind, hail - more sun - more hail - a bit of snow - then sun again. Clouds and weather truly blow through. Jim gave us the full experience! Thank you very much! We highly recommend anyone wishing to see more to consider this company an option. Well worth it!

We echo the 5 star reviews of Open Top Tours for 2018. Karl provided 2 of us with a memorable, unique, Halifax experience. Karl, himself, was respectful, engaging, a lively conversationalist and historian, and just all-around fun to be with.
