“I booked the Peggy’s Cove tour with Picture Perfect mostly just to get out one morning and check out Peggy’s Cove while staying in Halifax. This tour was so much more than I expected…”. “I learned more about my iPhone camera than I had previously in all the years as an iPhone user.” – RJ Brodeur (TripAdvisor)

“My wife and I had a great time out with him around Peggy’s Cove. He was patient and taught some of the other tourists how to use their cameras, he even taught me a cool iPhone photography trick! Highly recommend.” – Jo Lord (Google Review)

“It was the highlight of our cruise. Geordie took good care of us during the entire tour. His recommendations were on point and he was flexible in adjusting the itinerary based on our requests. Will definitely use Picture Perfect Tours again in our next visit.” – Angie N. (TripAdvisor)
