Port was next to famous Pier 21 where all the immigrants arrived. It is now a museum and worthy of a look. I found my mom’s passenger records and ship registry here. There is a new boardwalk with many shops and restaurants. A huge Farmer’s Market is on the way. We did a tour to Peggy’s Cove and other sites that was fantastic. The cemetery with Titanic graves was interesting. Read Less

Via bus, we toured Halifax, Peggy's Cove, and Acadian Maple Products Company. All were fun and beautiful! We had fabulous weather and lots of sun for taking great pictures. Our guide had lots of energy and was very knowledgeable. He was very clear on timing when we had opportunities to get off the bus in order to keep us on track and on time. Peggy's Cove was gorgeous and so picturesque! Fabulous photos! We also enjoyed the beauty and history of the Halifax Public Gardens! Read Less

We booked the "Titanic - The Halifax connection" tour, and didn't pay attention until the day before the port stop that our tour didn't begin until 3:00 p.m. We took advantage of the late start to do some shopping and walk along the waterfront, which was also interesting. Once the tour started, our first stop was at the maritime museum, and frankly it was a little disappointing, partly because it was VERY crowded, which made it hard to see everything in the time allotted. We went from there to the cemetery where many Titanic victims were buried. On the way there the tour guide also explained about the "Halifax explosion" -- a WWI freighter loaded with munitions collided with another ship, caught fire, drifted toward the shore and exploded -- blinding many in the town who had gone to their windows to see what had happened. At the cemetery the tour guide gave a very informative talk about the body identification processes that had been used, the grave markers, and other interesting facts. The late start, coupled with rush hour traffic, made us quite late back to the ship -- we were not back until after 6 p.m., so we missed our early dinner seating. Overall I'm glad we did the tour, but it can be important to pay attention to the starting time and know that you may be getting back to the ship just before it sails. Read Less

The tour takes you all around the city to the Citadel. We pass public gardens twice on way there. We spent 15 minutes at Citadel (but it should have been at least an hour and half) and moved on to the public gardens where we spent 1-1/2 hours (not necessary!!). The garden is a 15 minute walk. Nice garden. Then we were to find our lunch. Free Wifi, but could not connect, at McDonald's. Not a great selection of dining options. Read Less
