If you are coming to Nova Scotia this summer and are looking for a private tour of Lunenburg and Mahone Bay NS, than you are in luck!
The Halifax Tour Guys have been taking cruise ship tourists and visitors to Halifax Nova Scotia on this tour for years. The whole private tour to Lunenburg and the Mahone Bay area last usually six to seven hours and starts in Halifax NS and winds it way to Exit #11 off Highway #103, passing through Blockhouse towards to Lunenburg. The private guided tour starts with an amazing view of Old Town Lunenburg just across the harbor from the golf course.
Lunenburg is an UNESCO (UN) World Heritage Designated Site and is home to the famous Bluenose Schooner. Remember the back of the Canadian 10 cent coin? Well that’s the Bluenose! She is captained by Angus Walters who travels with a well trained crew. The Bluenose has won many fishing schooner races in her day in North America and is anchored dockside if you wish to take a tour.
Your Halifax Tour Guys Driver and personal Tour Guide of Lunenburg has many story’s to share about Camp Norway and the section of the Berlin Wall. You can visit the Fisheries Museum and stroll the waterfront and the Old Town as well.
Lunenburg also has a number of Churches such as St John‘s Church dating back to 1753. Old Town Lunenburg is recognized for its architecture and planning all over the world. The best British colonial town planning in North America. There are wonderful art galleries, small shops of various kinds and folk art, in fact they have folk art festival every year. There are several Memorials to see, and an operating Blacksmiths shop with a micro rum distillery, producing some great tasting products, and the Lunenburg Academy is a must see, it was here that students flying drones in the area discovered the foundation of the original British Fort.
Mahone Bay Tour
Founded in 1754 and settled by mostly German people, Mahone Bay residents over the years included Pirates, Privateers, Military Captains, and Rum Runners, to name a few. For the past few decades, tourism and small business has been the mainstay of the town.
Famous for its three churches, plenty of activities for young and old, a harbor full of pleasure craft, and lots of unique shops. Stop on your Mahone Bay tour and enjoy the fresh air and take a stroll along the waterfront.
From Mahone Bay we travel through some small communities, and pass by Oak Island, believed by many to have a treasure buried there. Since 1795 treasure seekers from near and far have tried and failed to find anything of value. Six men have lost their lives searching, and the story told is that a seventh man will die before the treasure is found.
The town of Chester is your next stop. A charming town founded in 1759, has an interesting history and some beautiful homes and waterfront. Your Nova Scotia private tour guide will show you around and as you drive through the town you will see why it is not only a nice place to visit, but why it has become a retirement community for many people.
