Just what we wanted.
Sail Date: September 2018
Just what we wanted. Bus left us off for an hour in each place to wander around on our own. Places were scenic and small so we had no trouble seeing all there was to see in each place. Our tour also included Peggy's Cove.

Went to maple store. Saw film made purchase at store. Should spend more time in Lunenberg. Lunenberg is a nice place and more time should be spent there.

Very enjoyable excursion - nice surprise with Mahone Bay. Such a beautiful area. Our included lunch was delicious and efficient to get so many in and out so quickly without making us feel rushed.

Did this as part of 150 years of Canada Tour. We had a great guide who spent the 90 minutes driving there giving us a very good history of the area. I went through the fisheries Museum which was very interesting the highlight there was speaking with the retired fisherman who explained how the boats worked. This is a beautiful town I was a little upset we only spent a little more than 90 minutes here on this tour. It could easily be an all day outing by itself. Mohone bay was neat but you could just drive in and spend 15 minutes to take pictures and get the feel of the town Read Less

Pretty but boring.
Sail Date: September 2017
Pretty but boring. Walked about two blocks with tour guide, then left on own for two hours to shop or have lunch. Comments were that it was actually too long. Not enough to see there.

The whole excursion was lovely and safe.....however at the end of the tour the taxi said it was $279 USD when clearly it was $279 Canadian or $128 USD.....Buyers beware....Canadian taxi's charge in Canadian dollars!

Our driver got us quickly to Lunenburg- where we did the trolley tour, walked around the quaint town, and had lunch at the Knott Pub. Because we wanted to be able to drive around Mahone Bay and stop at Peggy's Cove as well, we could have used one more hour, but our docking times didn't allow for that. Read Less

Uncomfortable bus cost this a star. 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. Read Less

We hired Laila North (charming) to take 8 of us to Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay and Lunenberg. We had been to PC before and wantyed to go back. Lunenberg was new to us and I'd go back again. My suggestion is to visit PC for no more than 30 minutes for pictures - stop in Mahone Bay for QUICK lunch and spend rest of day in Lunengers. I'll point out that we have been to Halifax 3 times before so wanted something differnt this time. But if in Halifax first time - stay in tour and see the sights there. Read Less
