totally disorganized due to a change in the cruise schedule but they really did not have it together with the meeting place or time of the trip. We waited for a bus for 20 minutes in the cold, and then more bus riding to a small town. OK, scenic but really, not what I'd call a tourist attraction. Read Less

Nice excursion though we couldn't see much of the city or much of anything on the drive out due to the heavy fog. Peggy's Cove is always a lovely sight to see, even in inclement weather so would recommend going out there..

This trip was actually Peggy's Cove and the Titanic Cemetery visit. Our driver and tour guide were great. Very informative and capturing. The ride was scenic we got to learn about Halifax history, spend some nice picture taking time at Peggy's Cove (kids loved the rock climbing). The Titanic cemetery visit was pretty cool, we got to learn about many of the people that lost their lives and the very interesting lives that they lived. It was quite humbling to be there with that much history and so much sorrow. Highly recommend this tour! Read Less

Only negative was that we were on the wrong side of the bus. Ask the people who were on the driver's side to pay more and divide to get on first because the door side sees little on the way up and back. Irritating that the guide was saying look to the driver's side and we were looking at backs of heads when on the door side. Peggy's Cove was neat and we had a good amount of time. Read Less

Would have liked to have more time, but late getting there and very crowded conditions gave us only 30-45 minutes. Lost 15 minutes to parking and long lines for restrooms and shopping gave us time to take a picture. Plus it was an extra long extended bus which took forever to get on and off. Tour guide told us we had to hurry so he could get back for his other tour. When we arrived back at ship, we stood outside for,45 minutes because machines checking its wasn't working and we were hungry since it was almost 3:00. Read Less
