We chose this tour because it was doable for my parents who are in their 80s.

It was a rainy day so this tour gave us an overview of the town. Afterwards, we visited the immigration museum at Pier 21 on our own.

This excursion was well presented in noting so much information about the area! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. We enjoyed the presentation and felt as though he immersed us in so much information about the history, economy, people and lifestyle of the area. It was a wonderful way to be introduced to Halifax! This tour begins and ends at the port terminal where there are many wonderful shopping booths that are so very convenient to purchase gifts and souvenirs! The prices here seemed much more reasonable also than other ports on the New England/Canada itinerary. The shopping booths remained open according to the cruise ships schedule while docked. Read Less

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! Read Less

We took a 1-hour tour of Halifax on a horse-drawn trolley.
Sail Date: June 2012
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.
