Halifax City/Peggy’s Cove Tour
Start with a city tour of Halifax, which includes the south end of the city, with its beautiful century-old Victorian homes, then down to the Old Burying Grounds, and passing by St. Mary’s Basilica. This will lead to Spring Garden Road, where we stop at the Public Gardens. From here, we are on to the Halifax Citadel, for some scenic pictures from the highest point in town. On to the downtown area, we will pass City Hall, St. Paul’s Anglican Basilica (circa 1750) and around to Province House and the Granville Mall. We will also see the Historic Properties, St. George Round Church and head up through the Hydrostone neighbourhood. I inform our guests about the Halifax Explosion of 1917, as we are on our way to the Titanic Graveyard.
Next, we go to the Acadian Maple Plant. At this rest stop, guests can purchase maple products or fudge if desired. Then, we take a 20 minute drive along St. Margaret’s Bay to Peggy’s Cove.
Heading back to Halifax, we drive through another beautiful neighbourhood, the Armdale, and will pass Dalhousie University. This leads our guests to the downtown area, and close to the port.
Halifax City/Peggy’s Cove/Chester/Mahone Bay/ Lunenburg Tour
In addition to the attractions in the Halifax/Peggy’s Cove Tour, we will visit the Town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home of the Bluenose. A coastal drive through Mahone Bay and Chester follows, while taking the Lighthouse Route to Peggy’s Cove.
