Companion & Additional Tours

There’s plenty to see and do in Halifax!

Friday, June 2, 2017 9:00am – 4:00pm

Join your kilted guide and travel along the Lighthouse route to Peggy’s Cove, which has been artists’ and explorers’ paradise for well over 150 years.  Located on the rugged Atlantic shoreline, standing on solid rock above the crashing surf, this coastline is famous for pirates, shipwrecks, rum-running and one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world.  Choose between a walking tour of the cove with your guide or free time to explore on your own.  Either way, you will see the weatherworn fishing shacks, colourful buoys and lobster traps still used by local fishermen, and awe-inspiring rock formations that have been carved out by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. You will also view the famous sculpture created by local resident William deGarthe – a beautiful granite carving which depicts the life and people of the area. 

Your tour continues to charming Chester overlooking beautiful Mahone Bay.  After a delicious two-course lunch, enjoy plenty of free time to shop and explore. 

Return to Halifax for an overview of the city including a visit to Fairview Lawn Cemetery to learn about the local connection to the Titanic Disaster. 

Event includes pick up from The Westin Nova Scotian, Scotian, tours and lunch.

Tour package is included in the "Companion Package" only. Additional tickets for the tour are available for purchase when you register.
