Okay, this is tough because we thoroughly enjoyed our guide and he knew his stuff about Halifax. Great tour. Was a small tour group (only 12 people). Peggy's Cove itself is so scenic and beautiful...it's the absolute number of people there that kind of ruin it. It's like eh because you want to get a good photo or some serenity with the waves crashing on the rocks, but you won't get that. The village itself is small but has a couple of cute shops and restaurants. Read Less

Peggy's Cove was amazing, as were the Maritime Museum (Titanic aftifacts) and the Citadel. But, best of all was our guide, Mel - He loves his city and knows all about it. He told us things about the Swiss Air disaster that occurred near Peggy's Cove and how the city took in stranded 9-11 airplane passengers, who were grounded there. He even went in the restaurant and brought out a male and female lobster and taught us the difference! Read Less

Rented a minivan with Dollar (located in the lobby of the Hotel across the street- took us a while to find the place because there was no signs) It takes like 50 minutes to get there but it is a beautiful drive. Peggy's cove is beautiful. Our family loved it. It was super cold for us (we are from PR so our average temp is in the 90’s) Be sure to dress in layers and wear a good jacket (most people had gloves, hats, jackets) There is a restaurant there and a shop with nice souvenirs. There are also restrooms in the shop. Including the minivan and gas it was like $12- $14 per person. Read Less

Halifax A larger city, and though there are things to do in town, but best is to travel outside. You have to take a short shuttle ride from the ship to the terminal, people lined up. I did a packed ship's excursion to Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, and Mahone. The restaurant at Peggy's , Sou'est, had wonderful seafood and great service in a stunning setting, is a lot like northern CA. Lunenberg is a cute town with Germanic history and a sad memorial to hundreds of local men who died at sea, but most venues were closed, as it was too early in the season. It would be lovely in warmer weather and independently. Mahone did not have enough to justify a 50 minute stop. Read Less
