Halifax Bus Tour Excursion Reviews
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.
Excellent tour guide.
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.
Took the 10 most important points of interest in Halifax tour which included Peggy's cove,Titanic Burial Site; Victoria Gardens, Ship Building Dockyards, The Cathedral, The Queen's Residence and the Citadel Outlook; Excellent tour at $99 per person
