Why do we have cruise ship tours listed separately from our other tours? Simply because passengers on a cruiseship are on a very
strict schedule - if they are late back, they miss their boat! These tours are all tailored to meet their interests and keep to their schedule.
If you are interested in any of these tours but you are NOT arriving on a ship, please contact us.

 

 


 

Halifax & Peggy's Cove

Halifax is an historic port city with a small town feel, yet all the conveniences of a big city.

Settled in 1749 as a military town, it quickly established itself as an economic hub of activity.  A series of tragic events have helped shape this city: from its role in the Titanic tragedy to the Halifax Explosion. This university town has withstood the time of time and more than it's fair share of disasters.

We tour the city and visit some sites of interest, and then head to Peggy's Cove where you will be in awe of the glacier-formed landscape and, of course, the famous lighthouse sitting atop granite rock at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. We enjoy the sights and sounds of this quaint fishing village and then travel back to Halifax, stopping at one or two more of the more popular city sites.

Price:
$250 for 1-4 people, taxes included
Extra people: $10 per person

Bluenose Coast

Our first port of call on this ever-popular tour is Peggy's Cove.  Here you will have time to capture one of Nova Scotia's signature shorts of the Lighthouse, majestically sitting atop huge great slabs of granite which have been smoothed by years of the rolling surf of the North Atlantic.

From Peggy's Cove we will continue along the Bluenose Coast (formerly known as the Lighthouse Route) and stop next in Mahone Bay, world famous for the three beautiful oceanfront churches with their steeples gracing the skyline. Without doubt, this is another stop for a photo you will show again and again when you relive your trip to Nova Scotia to friends and loved ones.

When we leave Mahone Bay we will head to Lunenburg, only a very short drive away. Lunenburg was endorsed by U.N.E.S.C.O. as a World Heritage Site in the mid-1990s, and is one of the last towns on the continent reminiscent of the United Empire Loyalists of 1753. Fishing boats come and go, but the only skyscrapers you are likely to see here are the masts of the tall ships which frequent the Port of Lunenburg. We will allow an hour to stop and enjoy Lunenburg after touring the town.

This brings us to the end of today's tour, and we will head back to Halifax.  The approximate duration of this tour is 7.5 hours, 4 hours of which will be spent in the van.

Price:
$345 for 1 - 4 people, taxes included
Extra people: $15 per person

Tranquility & Tides
 

Departing Halifax, we travel first to the Town of Wolfville, once known as MudCreek due to the vast acres of mudflats exposed at low tide.  This Minas Basin town is home to Acadia University and some of the finest farmland on the continent.

We then travel over North Mountain to the Village of Hall's Harbour, where the tides have reached 45 feet in height, and you will find the fishing boats either floating on the beautiful blue Bay of Fundy or resting on the mudflats far below the wharf.

We then visit Cape Blomidon for its outstanding view over the Annapolis Valley, and finally a stroll through the Botanical Gardens at Acadia University before returning to Halifax.  The approximate duration of this tour is 7 hours, 3.5 hours of which will be spent in the van.

Price:
$345 for 1 - 4 people, taxes included
Extra people: $15 per person

Coming to Nova Scotia on a cruiseship? Cruise ship stops in Halifax NS leave you with plenty of things to do while in port at halifax ns. Your cruiseline can provide you with a tour designed to show you a hotspot or two, but our tours for visiting cruiseships are designed specially for you. We can stop more and stay longer, as we only have up to seven passengers on board. While in port at Halifax, step off your ship on Halifax pier and let us drive you from your cruiseship to Lunenburg NS, Peggy's Cove and Mahone Bay. We will drive to you see everything you want to see, and get you back to your ship on time. If you want longer at one stop, we can stay longer just for you -- although it means we'll have to rush through others later - because we are working on YOUR schedule, not ours! See Nova Scotia at YOUR pace - don't spend your whole time at Peggy's Cove waiting in the long bathroom queues! We'll time your visit to Peggy's Cove when all the other mass bus tours have already left - or before they get there! Why see Nova Scotia any other way??
