Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

star-5
Why not combine our two most popular tours into one? See the sights of the historic port city of Halifax and then take in the famous breathtaking sights of Peggy's Cove. Our tour would commence from Pier 21 with its Historic block as the "Ellis Island" of Canada, where more than one million immigrants came through and more than 500,000 left from during WWII. From there we will visit St. Paul's Church, the oldest Anglican church in Canada. As well, St. Paul's Church was among some of the buildings that withstood the Great Halifax Explosion of 1917. We will drive on to Fort Needham Hill where a memorial carillon was built for the victims of that explosion. Then we'll be on to Canada's most famous lighthouse. Peggy's Cove is one of the most unique, captivating and exhilarating eye-openers in Nova Scotia. The quaint seaside hamlets of Shad Bay, Big Lake, East Dover and West Dover, to mention but a few, are also breathtaking.

Bay of Fundy / Hall's Harbour

Available from Thursday

Bay of Fundy / Hall's Harbour

The Bay of Fundy's shape and prevailing ocean currents conspire to create the highest tides in the world. Experience what happens as 3,680 billion cubic feet of water pour in and out of the "funnel" not once but twice each day. Boats and even ocean-going ships can be stranded high and dry. Vast tidal flats are waiting to be explored. That's how Hall's Harbour began in 1779 - as a pirate base for local scalawag Samuel Hall, his native Mi'Kmaq girlfriend and a band of cutthroat Yankee privateers. They would prey on the Planters and Loyalists to the British Crown. Finally, remember that this is a real fishing village, one that takes its living from the sea - not one created to please tourists. The fishermen and other village folk are usually busy with their work, but you'll find that they will often take the time to pass time the with visitors to their community. Why not come and spend some time with us?

Valley Wine Tour

Available from Thursday

Valley Wine Tour

Nova Scotia boasts some of the finest winery in Canada. Known for its historic maritime culture, fantastic beaches, the Bay of Fundy's record tides now add a great wine to that list. The earliest vines in Nova Scotia were planted in around 1610 by Champlain's hard-working band of settlers. It was and still is great to relax to a glass of wine after a hard day's work. Today the wine industry in Nova Scotia has grown to become a proud addition to the province's economy. We will begin our tour with the narration of the areas of our intended sites. Our first visit will be at the Domaine de Grand Pre Winery, where we will spend about two hours exploring this site. We will spend the day investigating the various vineyards where you can take in the beauty and sample their unique offerings. This is a day that is spent outdoors so please dress appropriately for this tour. Walking shoes are ideal.
