Full description
Your adventurous day begins with a scenic drive to Peggy’s Cove. Located about an hour’s drive away from Halifax, Peggy’s Cove is a picturesque fishing village with plenty to see and do. While driving up to Peggy’s Cove, your guide will point out notable sights, landmarks, and scenic views. Upon arrival to the cove you will be given plenty of free time in which you can explore the area around the historical lighthouse, stroll along the ocean looking for tidal pools, head into the village to watch the fishermen come and go, or go shopping in one of the small boutiques and shops. After exploring Peggy’s Cove, you will head back to downtown Halifax where you will stop at Citadel Hill where a historical guide will be waiting to take you on an amazing tour. Throughout the tour, you will explore prison cells and alleyways which date back to 1745.  The day ends on a high note with a driving tour of downtown Halifax. The driving tour will take you by the city’s most well-known buildings and landmarks, such as the Titanic Cemetery, the City Gardens, Pier 21, and the Halifax Farmers Market. At the end of the driving tour, you will be dropped off at a location of your choosing.

I had the pleasure of going on an excursion with Stephanie! I love our excursion. Stephanie took great care of us. She knew her subject inside out. Elke was able to answer our questions. Once in Peggy's Cove, we had time to visit the cove and the small Village. Stephanie knew the first name of the craftsmen, amazing. We can see that there was a beautiful chemistry between her and them. I highly recommend this excursion with Stephanie.

It was just what I was looking for. After spending the beginning of the week at a work function, I just wanted to relax and unwind before heading home to Ontario. I book a short tour out to Peggy's Cove and a tour of the Citadel....it was fantastic. Will definately recommend
