Laila and Richard (our driver) provided us a fantastic tour to Peggy's Cove, the Flight 111 memorial, the Titanic grave site. Wonderful lunch at the Finer Diner.
I recommend for anyone interested in the local history (they are both knowledgeable and interesting people) and a relaxed tour. A lot of elements of Halifax history came to light in a fun way.

Laila North runs a fine tour company. She was very pleasant to deal with in advance and she personally picked us up and took us through the Annapolis Valley and gave us a good overview of the valley, its history, and the wineries. We booked a custom tour and had wine tastings at four local wineries. She clearly pulled some strings to get us visits so early in the season, and she knows almost everyone in the wine country very well.

The main hitches were the price and the lunch. It was expensive to go with the custom option. But I did some hunting and the estimates I got from other places were consistent. It is a small nitche, wine touring from Halifax. As for the lunch, we were promised cheese and charcuterie and we only received two small bits of cheese and a hunk of pate. It was tasty but less than we have received from other wineries and tours.

You might do better with one of her standard tours if you have the group and the stamina to walk through vinyards all afternoon. We don't do that anymore, we just taste. And the tastings were excellent!

I booked the Peggy's Cove day tour for our party of 8 based on the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and had high expectations. Our experience exceeded those expectations, Laila is a great story teller with a fascinating history that she shared with us while traveling, and we loved the "off the beaten path" tour.

We spent a wonderful day with Laila. There were only eight of us on this tour which made for an intimate day. Peggy's Cove and lighthouse were amazing sights. We had lots of time to explore and take pictures. The lunch was great and we could order anything on the menu including drinks. We were taken to places large groups could not go. We were back to our ship in plenty of time! A Great Day!!!

This tour was awesome! It's an intimate group of 8 guests, so you aren't on one of those big buses and our tour guide took us to some stops that the large buses can't park at, which was great. She was friendly, super knowledgable and generous. I think it's a great value for money as well, and you don't feel rushed at any of the stops on the tour. I had one day to explore the major sites in Halifax, and I would highly recommend choosing Go North tours, if you want to see a lot of famous sites all in one day! Thanks for a memorable day! (make sure you wear comfortable shoes: running or hiking shoes with grip to walk over the rock at Peggy's Cove)
