My mom and I are doing this tour this fall.  I can come back in October and let you know how it was.  As for websites, try thinktransit.com and then click on City Tours.  I found the tour via TripAdvisor.  They don't take advance reservations and payment is only via cash, but for $25US, mom and I thought it was worth trying. The pickup/drop off point is "just up the street from the cruise terminal on Water Street".

Took the tour last week and I highly reccomend  it. Hear are some pointers:

 

St. John, New Brunswick -  https://www.saintjohn.ca/en/home/cityhall/transportation/transit/services/citytours.aspx

Saint John Transit City Bus Tour is a 2 hour tour on a city bus with full narration of the city with two stops (City Market and Reversing Falls). First bus out is at 10:00 AM  and they determine how many tours to offer based on how may ships are in town. Call them a few days before your arrival to see how many buses will run. They are scheduled every 45 minutes starting at 10:00 AM. The cost is $25 US or $30 CN which sure beats all other tours in town. Bus stop is on Waters St. and is a few blocks from the ships. Look for a sandwich board on the sidewalk heading toward town for tour times. There were 3 ships in town and we didn't catch the first 2 buses but got on the third bus. Great tour.
