What I loved most about working with you and your guides was the flexibility to make the tours ones that WE wanted. We saw what interested us most and we talked to others on the ship, some of them were very disappointed with the "big bus" experience and yet paid a fair chunk of change for that disappointment. We however, walked away with smiles on our faces, a ton of pictures of the most beautiful areas we have ever seen, and great memories.
We thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you so much! I will most definitely be recommending your services to my clients.

We had a wonderful day in your neck of the woods. Thanks for the great tour and hospitality.
enjoyed our time with you so much and want you to know that the tours
with Hilary and Florence were just great. They tried so hard to
please and they certainly did. On our tour with Florence, we even
got to feed the goats and that was an unexpected surprise! Thanks
again for setting up the wonderful, interesting tours.
Linda and Joe
Bebe and I would just like to extend a warm thank you for going above and beyond last Thursday for your services you provided to our group. The tour was flawless and they could not stop talking about how big their Lobster Rolls were! Thank you for your hospitality and we hope to continue to build a working relationship with you for future tours to your area.

I would like to thank you and your group for a fantastic day touring the Halifax area. It was both educational and enlightening.
Thanks for showing us all the sites. We really enjoyed our day and felt we were able to see a lot without feeling rushed. Thanks for all your patience as we worked through all the logistics.
We did have a great time on the tour with Dennis.
If we know of anyone visiting Halifax in the future, we will recommend your company to them.
The scenery was breathtaking and loved your humor.
Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour of the maritime provinces. Cathy and I have traveled all over the world and Greg was the best tour guide we've ever had! Knowledgeable, entertaining and accommodating to our requests above and beyond. Quite the story-teller as well. He knew the areas and their histories, and he seemed to know people everywhere we went. It was truly a pleasure to be chauffeured around by him every day. Thanks again for arranging our tremendous tour.

I just talked to (my client). He said that they truly enjoyed your tour, that there was more lobster than they could eat, and that they loved their overnight on PEI. He spoke very highly of you
Thanks for taking good care of my clients.
Thanks for the hospitality, we had a great time.
I need to tell you that our day in Halifax was GREAT and it was because of your tour. Thanks so much. All 14 of us enjoyed the day and the wonderful tour!
(The family), young and old, loved the tour. Halifax is so beautiful; what a perfect way to see your jewel of a city.
The bus was fantastic, and we cannot say enough great things about Dennis and Norm. The views, the history lesson from Dennis, the food and the commaradrie among us made the tour the favorite part of many of the family's trip.
Oh my gosh what a great time we all had! The Bus was awesome Dennis was very entertaining, we saw your beautiful port and we couldn't have asked for a better tour.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful tours you gave us. We all throughly enjoyed the two days. Thanks for showing us your wonderful province. Isn't Canada a great country?
Bob, thanks for a great day.
Thanks so much, Bob. We had such a grand time with you. Very very nice. Thank you. And Annie also appreciates very much all the articles and things you collected for her scrapbook. How generous of you. We also had a great time at the events on Saturday night, as well as the Titanic dinner on Sunday evening. I highly recommend the dinner.
Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Nova Scotia with Blue Diamond. Greg and Stan were excellent, the weather couldn't have been better, and the scenery was outstanding. Will recommend your company to anyone that we hear is planning a trip up your way.
We just got home to Kansas and we were talking about what a great time we had and how much we loved the tour Al gave us! He was so informative and friendly! We actually said that we thought the tour was the best we ever had! Thanks so much for everything!
Breann & Anthony A.
We all had a wonderful tour and got home safely.
Thank you for touching base with me about our tour of Peggy's Cove. All went well and our group of six enjoyed the day with Dennis.
I wanted you to know how my husband is describing our Blue Diamond tour...he tells everyone it wasn't like a "tour", more like an old friend picking you up at the pier and taking you around. Greg was the BEST!! We laughed and laughed all day with him. Enjoyed it all. Next time in Halifax, we'll contact you again and do another tour. Thanks again for a quality product (yes, interesting too).
Thank you for a most wonderful day, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We do hope one day to return to such a beautiful part of the world.We will certainly not hesitate to use your expert services when we return.
Chris, Rosaleen and Alex
Yes, the choice of your tour company was a good one. The family enjoyed all the tour guides and they all did a very good job. Dennis was a good tour guide and we enjoyed his presentations and knowledge.
We really enjoyed our tours with (our guides). Both were a lot of fun to be around and we certainly enjoyed all the local flavor that they brought to our walks & sightseeing. we would appreciate you passing on our thanks for a great time.
Jim & Linda G
We enjoyed our tours with Blue Diamond. We could not have asked for a better tour of PEI or Halifax. You are both excellent tour guides and a pleasure to be with.
Thanks again and I will be sure to pass your name on to other visitors to Nova Scotia.
Thank you, Bob, for a wonderful day of sightseeing! It was a great tour.
I will recommend you to others, certainly.
Bob, Just to let you know that the trip to Peggy's cove was the outstanding part of the trip. I took lots of pictures and loved all them the first time around. The second look, I removed some,but will have to go through them again,to bring down the total of really good shots. The scenery was just what I imagined it to be, so the trip was made. Thanks for your guidance.
Sam and Marilyn K
I want to thank you and Dennis heartily for the wonderful excursion and tour he gave us last Thursday. My mom hasn't yet settled down from recounting to my siblings and her friends and her voice gets softer when she still marvels at the way "God tossed all those boulders" at Peggy's Cove. She says that was her favorite of all places. Since she was a missionary in Beirut, Lebanon for almost 50 years, she is quite acquainted with the massive rocks at the Roman ruins in Baalbeck, Tyre, and Byblos. She says they don't hold a candle to what she saw on the tour.
We want to congratulate your company for this beautiful tour.
Liliana V., Israel
We really had a great time on your tour and my wife is still talking about the tidal bore on Salmon river. I hope all your guests experienced your "awesome timing" when viewing the bore.
Kent W, Austin Texas
We really enjoyed our visit with you. We will be back there in 2010. Can you meet us and give us another tour then?
Joe and Linda H
Really enjoyed the visit to Grand Pre. Could have spent the whole day there! Thanks for arranging that! It was really great to see family names of grandparents, friends and other relatives there!
Bob, I want to thank you for the great tour you gave us to Peggy's Cove. It was a great day, and we were so pleased with the services you provided. I have already had an opportunity to recommend you to someone else and will continue to do so.
A quick note to tell you THANKS for a wonderful tour on behalf of my group.
So many kept telling me how much they enjoyed your knowledge and sharing of it with us.
I know its your job, but I also see the passion your have rather than just the job.
We have had lots of guides that talk just to be talking but not really sharing such great info as you.
Had a look at your DIY link - great - really appreciate your guidance.
We are missing the Ocean air here. And thanks again for giving us a wonderful tour!
I have never had such positive response from anyone so quickly before – VERY Professional
(We) ... wish to thank you so much for our memorable and informative visit to the Maritimes.
We were very fortunate to have you as our guide, as you know the history and places of interest as well.
The day we spent with Florence in PEI was very informative and enjoyable as well.
Your choice of lodgings and meals was first class.
We will definitely be recommending Blue Diamond Tours to anyone planning a trip to the Maritimes.
Joy & Charles
I would like to say that you have worded your website well - it is interesting to read and makes you feel confident that you will have an enjoyable time.
... I am a hospitality person, and I set up a hotel school in Brunei (South-East Asia) ... hence I have a special interest in reading web pages that make people want to experience what you have to offer. The DIY tours are a wonderful idea and makes your company sound far less commercial than most! Well done!
United Arab Emirates
Thank you and your people for showing the group a great time! I'll look forward to booking with you again, you made it very easy.
Enjoyed the Prince Edward Island tour and having dinner with Anne of Green Gables. She ( Anne of Green Gables) was celebrating her 100th Anniversary, my husband and I were celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary. Also loved the play and the souvenir book.
The Stompin Tom Ballard was different than what I expected: was great and interesting.
I loved the small group, also the North Winds Motel at Brackley Beach and the buffet breakfast.
Gloria & Borden Purvis
This was my first time on a "FreeStyle Series Van Tour" and I wasn't sure what to expect but everything went great; from the time I was picked up at my home until the time I was returned to my home, I had no worries and could just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
The thing that impressed me the most about this trip was the fact that we had a very full schedule from the time we left until we returned home but in no way did we ever feel rushed. We had lots of time for touring - with a commentary on different sites of interest, shopping, exploring and having leisurley meals.
Thank you very much for making this tour such an enjoyable time.
We really enjoyed the trip, especially the little extra side trips you took us on. It was above and beyond the call of duty and we both thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Many thanks and God Bless you ! You are an excellent driver. We felt very safe with you driving.
Ethel & Lucille
Our trip was for eleven days and we never wanted the trip to end. We were treated like royalty and our every need was taken care of very professionally and personally. Unlike other tours we have been on in a bus, this tour in a van was able to become very personalized. We traveled quaint highways and passed through many little towns.
Our meals and hotel accommodations were superb. We were never rushed in the mornings and had plenty of time to take care of our personal needs. We were able to choose to stop if we needed.
We would highly recommend Bob and his tours. We have found a new friend and tour guide in Bob.
George and Ivy
"Thanks again for the tour.
"Thanks so much for an excellent tour - we all thoroughly enjoyed it."
"I wanted to thank you for the absolutely top notch tour you gave us. The amount of knowledge that you shared with us was unbelievable. My Dad and sister both told me that it was the highlight of our trip. When I show the trip pictures to others I've got loads of stories to tell them, rather than just this is Peggy's Cove etc... So once again thanks for a unique, informative and humourous experience that I'll remember every time I look at my Halifax pictures."
"I've been on many bus tours - Blue Diamond is by far the best!"
"Our first trip up your way would have been a total waste if you had not played such an important roll in our vacation. From the moment we stepped off the ship we knew we were in good hands … and in friendly hands."
"Thank you so much for your excellent commentary on the Maritimes. We enjoyed your style,humor and organization!! Super Job!"
