Upon arrival in Halifax, Darrell, our tour guide, was waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. We knew Grand Pre was at least a 2 hour drive from Halifax. Darrell kept us engaged by giving us some history of Halifax and the areas that we drove through. Once we arrived in Grand Pre, Darrell gave us ample time to tour and site see and take plenty of pictures. While on our way to the Deportation Cross, we met and chatted with a woman, who was blind, and was walking her dog. As we moved on to drive to another site, Darrell noticed a hat in the road and said it must be the lady's hat. He asked if we would mind turning around and bringing her hat to her. What a kind and decent act. The lady was extremely pleased that we took the time to return her hat. Darrell suggested the vineyard for lunch and it was spot on.
This tour exceeded our expectations. Getting to meet Darrell and having him as out tour guide without a doubt, was the icing on the cake. We will return to Nova Scotia and will request Darrell. Fantastic job NSVT/BD.
