Halifax: Guided Best of Halifax Tour

1. Halifax: Guided Best of Halifax Tour

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.

The tour was great ! Jake was amazing! So friendly and told us every details during the 4 hours tour. Very personalize tour that includes pick up / drop off at your hotel , so very convenient. The tour includes the most important highlights in Halifax ! Great service and totally recommended !

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

It was a good drive around the city and a good verbal history of different areas. Would have liked more time at Peggy’s Cove. 15 minutes was just not enough time. Good host!! Lyle was a very kind knowledgeable and patient man.

Lyle was an excellent guide. It was a very informative tour. Our guide gave us a bit of extra time at Peggy's Cove which was nice but it would be nice if the tour company could build in a little more time to spend there.

Our guide was enthusiastic, professional, knowledgeable and funny. My wife and I would use your services again in a heart beat.
