This tour features a drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove along the beautiful Lighthouse Trail. You will stop in Peggy's Cove for a walk on the rocks and explore many of the surrounding areas. Along the way you will be able to visit local shops and museums and get a feel for historical life in rural Nova Scotia.
For lunch enjoy Lobster, Fish and Chips and other local favorites at an additional cost.
A typical tour includes a stop to the Titanic Graveyard site: travel off the beaten track to the small fishing village of Lower Prospect/Terence Bay with a local Lighthouse on the rocky coastline (maybe find some sea glass on the beach); Peggy's Cove and Lighthouse, with access to amazing views, meal/lunch stops and so much more. Other areas we can arrange based on interest and time is Swiss Air Memorial Site and the Acadian Maple Shop.
As with all of my tours, it can be customized to suit your interests. Meal stops with various options are available along the route at an extra cost.
I have my standard 5 hour Peggy's Cove tour, but the demand over the years was very high to have more time to see more sites and spend more time in the areas visited. So there is the option for a 6 hour tour. The extra hour allows this flexibility and well worth the time added.
Max seating is six guests based on typical sized adults/children. The number of passengers would be reduced for over-sized/taller passengers to ensure comfort & accessibility. See FAQ for more details.
