Halifax, Nova Scotia. Very nice excursion. We boarded a bus with a very knowledgeable guide and drove the short distance to the extremely picturesque location of Peggy’s fishing village. Though not really populated now, the beauty is still there. Colorful fishing boats tied up at the pier and a very nice lighthouse as well. After another informative and picture-taking trip back to the boat and we spent several hours going through the many gift shops at the terminal. Read Less

Getting out to Peggy's Cove was a long, scenic ride. Once there, it was a great sight and able to climb around on rocks provided great enjoyment for the kids (and adults).

Halifax - Oh Canada - Small Group - Excellent guide. Fresh haddock, veggies and potato, and trifle w/ coffee for dessert. WiFi in Restaurant. Halifax tour guides are the best dressed in kilts. Our guide was so knowledgable with Kilt Patterns, flags, history and more. We stopped at Peggy’s Cove to see that beautiful lighthouse. Syfy’s Haven show were filmed at Peggy’s Cove lighthouse (once) and Luninburg. Rushed through Acadian Maple even though the description called it the “highlight of the tour.” The tour guide’s Maple Pumpkin Pie suggestion really helped at Thanksgiving. But they shop owners were very helpful locating items. Luninburg is a quaint town. Our guide explained that most buses only went to the waterfront, but he had our driver go into the historic part of the city. I doubt a huge bus could have fit around those narrow streets and square curbs. They need to find a minibus with more leg room. We’d gladly pay more for a better minibus w/ more legroom. We had more leg room on the flight home in coach. Done Peggy’s Cove three times, and Halifax City twice now, and hear new information every time. No repeats for this particular tour. May try the extended Peggy’s Cove since we never seem to have enough time there. We brought up the short stop at Acadian Maple to the Shore Excursions desk, and they said they have to keep to a schedule on tours with a lot of stops. Will book shorter tours with fewer stops from now on. Uncomfortable bus cost this a rating star. Read Less

Our guide, Jay White, was terrific. He has a doctorate in Canadian history and kept me entertained. Your trip to Peggy's Cove is off the beaten path and very picturesque and interesting. You can spend as much time as you want there. He then took us for the most delicious lobster and mussels. He is a tremendous source for historical facts. He then spent time off the clock to take my wife to two yarn stores before bringing us back to the ship. The only down side is that he has a small car and can only carry 3 people. I would definitely seek him out. Read Less
