Visit the major landmarks of coastal Halifax and explore the fascinating city on an historic tour excursion. Explore one of the largest harbors in the world and delve into its rich history, including the key role it played during the aftermath of the Titanic tragedy.
It was a big deal for me to finally visit the Fairview Cemetery where so many Titanic victims were buried. We also got a tour around the city, site of where the ice rink morgue was, etc.
It also included admission to the Maritime Museum which had artifacts from Titanic that had never been salvaged, but rather pulled out of the ocean when teh tragedy occurred. My only complaint was a wish I'd been told the Acadia exhibit closed at 3p, hours before the rest of the museum. I didn't get to board her because of that.

We went to the cemetery where 100+ victims are buried & stayed there quite a while.
Next we went to the museum where we had a guided tour & some free time. Because we had time left our guide took us to the public garden which was really beautiful,assorted Dahlias were in bloom & ducks were diving in the stream.
