Who are we?

Ambassatours is Atlantic Canada’s premier tour company, having operating land and water sightseeing tours throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island for the past 31 years. Ambassatours is one of the region’s most dynamic charter services, operating in the Atlantic provinces, Quebec, Ontario, and eastern USA. Ambassatours was instrumental in the explosive growth of the cruise industry in Atlantic Canada, and is the top provider of shore excursions to all major cruise arrivals in Halifax, Sydney, Charlottetown, and Saint John. Recently expanding to Niagara Falls, with the acquisition of Double Deck Tours, the company operates a fleet of 37 classic British double decker buses, in addition to 55 highway motor coaches. Under the Murphy’s brand in Halifax, the company operates eastern Canada’s most popular water-based tours, aboard seven different vessels, including the Harbour Hopper amphibious vessels, Theodore Tugboat and the Tall Ship Silva. The company also operates a popular restaurant in the heart of Halifax’s waterfront district. In peak season, the company employs over 650 staff in its five operating locations, making it the largest combined land and water tour company in Canada.
