I was on a cruise with my family and the excursions we wanted were fully booked. We lucked out though, because I found Get Your Guide and this tour was so much better. We were a group of 4 so we ended up with a private tour of Saint John with our guide Cher. The tour covered all the areas we wanted to see as well as some we hadn't heard about. We learned about the area on the way to each stop and were given time to go through at our own pace. Would definitely recommend this tour and Cher was a great guide.

Our guide was waiting for us on the pier as arranged. Cher was friendly and knowledgeable about Saint John, adding background to each of our stops. When we expressed interest in something we had read about, she gracefully worked it into our allotted time.

Saint John is one beautiful city with a rich history. And I cannot think of anyone better than Cher to visit this city with. Thank you for such a special tour and experience!

Wonderful tour and an amazing tour guide, Cher! She was fun, knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. We had a very enjoyable trip around the city.

The owner was lovely. Showed us the entire town , its highlights & took our pictures too.
