Overview
All of my tours are Private, Narrated, Personal Tours, you have the van and guide all to yourself. It is YOUR tour and I can customize the itinerary, as you wish. (You Decide) I love to show our Historic Halifax which is an intimate city that retains the ease of a small town from the Harbor front to Victorian Public Gardens, it is large enough to have the trappings of a capital city, yet small enough that many of its sights can be easily seen.

    The tour starts in metro Halifax and continues throughout the city. While driving through you will view some of the old stately, Georgian and Victorian style homes of days gone by. Some points of interest would include: Point Pleasant Park - Universities - Citadel Hill Fortress - The Public Gardens - The Town Clock - Sir Sanford Flemming Park - Province House - Historic Buildings in Old Town - The Halifax Explosion Monument and The Hydrostone Redevelopment. Plus we take you to visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery for a narrated tour of the Titanic grave sites. Ultimately 150 Titanic victims were buried in Halifax. "You Decide", this tour takes Five to Six Hours. If you wish to have lunch here or near by, we can advise and accommodate that. Check Halifax Taxi Tours reviews on Trip Advisor
