Tour #2 – Halifax and Peggy’s Cove Tour
This is the most popular Tour in Nova Scotia. Our tour usually takes 5-6 hours depending on the length of time spent at various stops.

From there you can visit Halifax’s Citadel Hill, Fleming Park, War of 1812, Halifax Explosion, and Titanic Burial Site.
We then travel towards Peggy’s Cove which is a classic red-and-white lighthouse with an automated light that has wet slippery rocks and unpredictable surf. Visitors have slipped on the dark wet rocks or have been swept off the rocks by waves, sometimes drowning, so we want to caution our tour passengers to be very careful.
On our way back to Halifax we will travel through the Village of West Dover, Communities of Bayside, Shad Bay, Prospect Bay, White’s Lake and Hatchet Lake. Once back in Halifax, if time allows, we will see some more of the Highlights of Halifax on the way to your Cruise Ship.
