We toured on a very cool and windy day during the off season but the trip was still worth it. Our tour guide, Ethan, made the trip worth while by telling us informative stories regarding the history of Halifax, the landscapes we saw, Peggy’s Cove, and present day happenings. Definitely request Ethan for your tour. And, no, we are not related to him.
