Go back in time with a Halifax Horsedrawn Trolley Tour: visit the warehouse district, the harbor front, and the final resting place of Major General Ross, the man who put the American capital to the torch.

Other than it was cold, it was a wonderful very information tour. Our guide added just the right amount of humor and local color to keep our interest.He was very good about answering our questions.

There was nothing wrong with this short, one hour tour, but it was the only shore excursion I did with a non-local guide, so I missed the charming accent of a native. We did get a quick glimpse of most of what downtown Halifax has to offer. Frankly, I'd booked a different excursion before discovering that one member of our party gets motion sickness on a bus. It was too late to cancel and get my money back, so I paid more to take this excursion instead. The slower moving, open air trolley did make for a much more comfortable ride for our carsick son, but the higher cost for a relatively short tour just didn't feel like great VALUE to me. Having visited Halifax now, I would just walk off the ship and go along the pedestrian boardwalk into town by foot. The town itself looked very interesting, but the at-a-glance tour wasn't the sort of deeper exploration of a place that I prefer. If you are looking for an overview tour just so you can say you've "seen Halifax", this would be quite a fine choice for you!

We took a 1-hour tour of Halifax on a horse-drawn trolley. We saw many sights around town and our guide was informative. It is a beautiful and extremely clean, friendly city. A nice overview of the city at an affordable price.
