Jeremy the tour guide was great.

Jeremy the tour guide was great. Played local music, recited poetry both by locals and about the area. Wines at vineyard were ok, but didn't buy any. Views were lovely. Lots of time on bus. Stops felt a bit rushed.

40 person bus drove out through Halifax for a quick glimpse. One hour ride to Winery. Winery only produced sweet wine which was not to our taste. Winery was a gift shop and an outdoor tent. No tour of facility or vineyard. nest stop was a drop for lunch in Wolfville which was a one street town. Stop was lunch on your own with not enough time to explore the town. Scenic overview was literally a pull off overlook a valley for 10 minutes, with traffic whizzing by. A one photo shot opportunity. No amenities except a Portapotty. Last stop was a roadside farmer's market with lovely produce, that one could not bring back on the ship. Good ice cream. One hour busied home in rush hour traffic, We would not recommend this tour.

We very much wanted to visit Peggy's Cove but tours were sold out well before the cruise. Instead, we did the Valley and Vineyards tour. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, funny, and caring. We learned so much and visited a lovely winery where we tasted 4 wines and had an opportunity for shopping. We had to cut out one of our stops because the ship was late, again, and we would not have made it back for our sailing without shortening the tour. Read Less
