Taking a bus tour of Halifax is the most efficient and informative way to visit all of the city's must-see attractions.

Lots to see and do. Titanic artifacts and maritime museum was very interesting. Great food but all within walking distance. No bus trip is needed.

Visited both Halifax city and Peggy's cove. Great distances between the two. Guide in period costume and very good guide. Saw some highlights of Halifax but not as much as we wanted to. WE drove past the major sites such as the Citadel and the Maritime Museum. We were docked in an industrial ship yard and shuttle buses were needed to take you into town. The tour buses met us at and dropped us off at the ship. Peggy's Cove is pretty and again, not enough time to thoroughly explore the area. It started to pour rain when we were there but were back on buses just in time.

Halifax is an interesting small city with a lot of history. The hop on/hop off was a good way to see it and decide what you wanted to see in more detail. The Citadel, the park, and the Museum of the Atlantic are all worth seeing.

City has some real gems, but getting to them is a real problem if you use the Hop-on Hop-off buses. The buses that are suppose to run every 30 minutes, ran about every hour and were full at some stop and you could not board them. Most sites are within walking distance of the cruise piers and would be more enjoyable than waiting for buses.

We did do the Titanic Museum in Halifax, NS. Great experience. You'll see a deck chair and a pair of little girl shoes that were displayed among many other things. We didn't get the Big Pink Bus from the cruise line, but when we got of the ship we got tickets at the booth which was the same price as on the ship and they took the our seapass for payment. So, same difference. Get the tickets on the ship.

The city tour was interesting, but we wished we had taken a whale watch instead.

Loved the idea of three loops, meaning you could choose something and get there quickly. They lined us up inside a garage for weather protection; so appreciated!

Did the Big Pink Bus, great transportation and commentary along the way, but a little pricey for what you get

Again, very friendly tour guides. We did the Hop on Hop Off Bus again. We stopped at the public gardens which were pretty, and did the maritime museum, which was interesting. I would not do the bus again as Halifax is definitely walkable. There's a great boardwalk and everything seems pretty condensed.

Knowledgeable tour guide. Got us to where we needed to go and had a quick view of the city on the bus.

Great to be on a bus on a rainy day. The tour took us to many places we would not have been able to see for the one day we were there. Especially interesting was the Titanic graves at the Fairview Cemetery and Peggy's Cove.
