Peggy’s Cove & Halifax

6 reviews
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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.

Buildings and neighborhoods are pretty. We come in winter so there aren’t many people. It’s very small so you can finish walking here very soon.

A beautiful historic area at the harbourfront. Its buildings are antique-type and beautiful. Has lots of options for souvenirs and gifts and surrounded by restaurants of all kinds; from junk food to fancy restaurants. Yet, I didn't like that they close very early in the evening at 6:00, so one can't visit after having a nighttime walk by the harbourfront.

It is great to walk around this historic area seeing the many restaurants and shops but what made it especially nice was many of the building entrances were decked out with Halloween themes.

The stores inside are full of surprises. So much variety. Jewellers that make the items on site. Art, souvenirs, food everything!
