Here we did the Hop on Hop Off bus tour and due to the weather we stayed on the entire 90 minutes and got an excellent tour of the entire City with a wonderful guide that provided lots of stories and information. If the weather had been warmer then 44 degrees F we saw several places including the public gardens that we would have liked to have gotten off and explored. We did walk through the adjacent farmer market after the tour. Read Less

We got a good overview of the city and area from two good tour guides. We did hop off at one point and didn't have to wait too long for another bus when we were ready to continue.

Wanted to kayak, but, was all taken.
Sail Date: June 2018
Wanted to kayak, but, was all taken. Need to be the first one to the pier, or you won't get it. Amazing time to see the city from the bus tour. Expensive ($70) but worth it to get to know the history.

Another beautiful tour.
Sail Date: October 2016
Another beautiful tour. Highlight of this tour was a one hour stop at Peggy's Cove. Beautiful little place to visit. There were many tour buses stopped at Peggy's cove, so there were a lot of people there at one time.
