The tours are done on a daily bases. You need to book through our website or call our office at 1-902-406-6314. Thank You. Lem Smith
What is the name and number of this taxi tours and does it leave earlier in the day? The Princess Cruise Ship offers a tour but is only available at 330p the day we are in port so we would miss dinner. From reading Trip Advisor reviews it sounds like you do not have enough time to visit the sites as you are rushed with a group of 40 on a bus tour. Is this tour on a small bus or car? Any suggestions from anyone would be helpful. I don't want to be late for the ship getting back. Thank you.
