Halifax History
September 21, 2017
This was an excellent tour, but give yourself plenty of time to walk to the tour bus - at least 20 minutes since it was 2/3 to 1 mile from the ship. Lots of history, including Halifax's assistance with the aftermath of the Titanic sinking. The tour guide was great; having lived there his entire life he knew the history.

A nice introduction!

We enjoyed our trip immensely! Bus was comfortable and microphone was just right. It was just an introduction - we will go back and explore on our own. Our only snag was that the bus was not at the location written on our tickets. We waited at the assigned place, and finally had to scramble around looking for our bus. We found the bus just as the guide was getting on.
