Full description

Discover the Port of Halifax with this smartphone tour. Find historical sites and artifacts from as early as the 1700’s on this 1.5 kilometer route. Be transported to when privateers grew rich off their daring escapades at sea on this informative tour.

Follow the development of this area through the ages as this boisterous port of call grew into a vibrant, modern city. Start at Pier 21 where so many immigrants first stepped foot in Canada to begin new lives.

Stroll past monuments, statues, and sculptures honoring those who helped make Halifax the city it is today. Walk along the one of the longest boardwalks in the world at your own pace. Save your data with an offline tour.

Visit marine museums and walk on the deck of an Edwardian steamship the CSS Acadian. From late June to October the HMCS Sackville, Canada’s oldest warship welcomes visitors on board. Finish at the Market Mall where you can do some shopping.

I liked this tour. I appreciated that the app allowed downloading and I was able to listen offline, as we were out of the country and had no cell service. The ability to go at your own pace and see each of the stops was nice. Would recommend.

Peggy's cove was lovely and the guide, Ethan, had great stories to teach us along the way. Great experience.
