Why choose Blue Diamond Tours?

We tailor your excursion to fulfill your specific requests / requirements.
For example, Halifax has become a very busy cruise ship destination. If there happens to be a number of cruise ships in port at the same time as your visit, we will arrange your itinerary to avoid visiting particular sites at those times when they will most likely be crowded. We can accomplish this by reversing the order of the site visits so that your group can enjoy visiting the site during a less busy time of the day.

We can and will alter your itinerary to include what your group wants to do and see.
Your excursion is just that; your excursion, so while we offer a variety of itineraries / experiences to choose from, they all can be tailored to suit your group's tastes and wishes. This is dependent on the size of your group / time available.

As with snowflakes, no two tours are ever exactly the same.
There's a personal touch added to each trip. Our tours are not of the "cookie cutter" variety - we're home-made and unique!

Tour only with who you want.
Your excursion party is just your group - no strangers or large crowds! In this way, the focus remains on you and you group - not the itinerary, clock, or on people you don't know. As the itinerary is your own, it is flexible too. We use the time of your excursion to do and see the things you want to do and see! This is your tour / your vacation, and we want to make it special for you with memories that will last a lifetime!

Quality and Value.
While other tours may cost less, they can't compete with Blue Diamond on value given!

We had a wonderful time on your tour! Thanks for the great day. Your kindness and knowledge made the day a wonderful experience.
