It's The Best of Halifax and Peggy's Cove!

The tour begins with a highlight tour of Halifax, the largest city east of Montreal and the capital of Nova Scotia. Founded in 1749 to protect British interests in North America, Halifax is steeped in maritime history. Among the highlights on this portion of the tour is the Grand Parade Square, the central square of the original town. St. Paul's church, situated in the square, is Canada's oldest Anglican Church.

Another highlight of the tour is West Dover. This small fishing community with a charming and quaint setting has a population of around 275. From there, the tour continues along the scenic coastal route to Peggy's Cove. One of Canada's most visited places, with its lighthouse perched on the edge of the ocean and quaint fishing village, Peggy's Cove attracts thousands of visitors each year. Nestled on the rocky shoreline of St. Margaret's Bay, the area offers spectacular, world-famous scenery.

You will see the Devonian Granite Rock Formations which influence much of the landscape around Peggy's Cove. These huge 350- to 415-million-year-old boulders were scattered by retreating glaciers about 10,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age. Almost unreal, they appear to be growing out of the fields of moss and shrubs.

During the drive back to Halifax, a photo stop will be made at the Halifax Citadel. The hilltop location offers visitors a panoramic view of the harbor and the city.

5 Starswarm and welcoming Halifax, expert driver!!January 30, 2017

Such a memoriable afternoon, our driver took us past graveyards from Titanic survivors during the town tour. He was eliquent and funny. He pointed out all the unique heritage and safety features at Peggy's Cove, before we left the bus. This extra precaution was so very appreciated as we explored this charming community and had lobster rolls. We had a single passenger return late to the bus. He was pleasant and calm with that person and we returned to MS Maasdam in great spirits.

Reviewer: Christie Stevens
We chose this tour because we were able to see Peggy's Cove but also get an overview of Halifax. Our guide picked us up at the cruise terminal and gave us an overview of the history of Halifax on our drive to Peggy's Cove. Our guide was also the driver of our coach but was able to talk and navigate without missing a beat. We had ample time to walk around Peggy's Cove, take photos at the lighthouse and also have warm gingerbread at a restaurant our guide recommended. After Peggy's Cove we returned to Halifax and stopped at an overlook point. We had the opportunity to walk back to our ship (all downhill!) or ride back.
