Hop-on/ Hop-off Double Decker Sightseeing Tour a Huge Hit

For immediate release
July 31, 2002

This year Atlantic Tours Gray Line launched their Hop-On / Hop-Off Double Decker Sightseeing Tour in Halifax and the tourists are loving it.

The 1½-hour tour covers the downtown area and includes 10 stops along the route.  Passengers can stay on board for the complete tour or get on or off at any of the 10 stops.  The tickets are good for 48 hours and many passengers are taking advantage of the service to get them to the many attractions in the downtown core, including Pier 21, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Keith’s Brewery and the great shopping along Spring Garden Road, just to name a few.

An added special feature with this Hop-On / Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour is the GPS commentary system on board.  Atlantic Tours Gray Line is the first tour operator in North America to use this type of high tech GPS technology.  The company has introduced the use of a GPS onboard entertainment/commentary system with this Hop-On / Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour.  This Global Positioning Satellite System triggers commentary segments at pre-determined co-ordinates.  The commentary system, working in conjunction with the tour attendants, takes you back into some of Halifax’s most memorable moments through music and evocative sound effects.  Samples of this high tech and entertaining GPS tour can be sampled online at

Hop-On / Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour Tickets are available from the ticket kiosk located in front of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic on Lower Water St., from any downtown hotel and they can be purchased from the onboard tour attendant at any of the 10 downtown stops.
