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.

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!

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

Our guide, Cher, was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. She made the tour perfect!

Cher was wonderful. We had no idea this beautiful city had so much to offer
