Meet at the Halifax Central Library
5440 Spring Garden Rd

Start your day with a tour of the brand new Halifax Central Library!

Then choose from one of three wonderful tours of Nova Scotia:

Option 1: Halifax/Peggy’s Cove:
Join your kilted guide and travel to nearby Peggy's Cove - an artists’ and explorers’ paradise for well over 150 years. This famed village on the rugged Atlantic Shoreline stands on solid rock above the crashing surf. The coastline is famous for pirates, shipwrecks and one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. There will be plenty of time for exploring this unique area, and for those who wish, your kilted guide will take you on a walking tour of the moody cove and village.   Return to Halifax for an overview of the city which will introduce you to one of North America’s most unique and captivating destinations. Hear of the days of privateering, Halifax during the war years, the Titanic Connection, and the exploits and heroism of the citizens that lived through the devastating Halifax Explosion in 1917.  Also visit Citadel National Historic Site featuring re-enactors of the famed 78th (Highlanders) Regiment of Foot to learn of the origins of the city.

Option 2: South Shore: Mahone Bay/ Lunenburg
Join your kilted guide and head to Nova Scotia’s delightful South Shore where you will experience Lunenburg, one of the prettiest towns in Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Settled in the mid 1750’s by Germans and Swiss, the locals still retain one of the most interesting accents in North America. Now a bustling fishing port, Lunenburg was once considered to be the busiest shipbuilding town in the world, and was the birthplace of the world-famous racing schooner Bluenose. The town’s distinctive architecture and extraordinary scenic beauty is a colourful reminder of our maritime heritage. Upon arrival choose between joining your guide for a walking tour of the original town plat, or free time to explore at your leisure.  Next, there are more picture-perfect sights to be seen in Mahone Bay, including the well-known scene of three waterfront churches.  The quaint charm and century-old architecture is sure to captivate as you enjoy free time to explore and shop.  Your day traveling the beautiful coastline of Nova Scotia’s south shore is sure to take your breath away. 

Option 3: Annapolis Valley - Wine Enthusiast Tour
Join your kilted guide and spend a leisurely after sampling some of the acclaimed wines of Nova Scotia.  First, visit Domaine de Grand Pre Winery, one of the premiere wineries in Atlantic Canada, where great pride is taken in making among the finest Nova Scotian wines.  Their vintages are unlike any others in the region with crisp flavors  produced from using only 100 per cent Nova Scotian grapes. Unique varieties that are suited to the Maritime region have been created from specialty grapes that were developed for Nova Scotia climate and landscape. The results are apparent in an array of award-winning vintages, which wine lovers across Canada and around the world appreciate.  Next is the Gaspereau Valley’s Gaspereau Vineyards.  Situated in the romantic, rolling hills of the sun-kissed Valley, this boutique winery creates award-winning, premium, estate-grown, limited edition wines.  End your outing with a visit to one of Nova Scotia’s newest wineries, Planter’s Ridge, an artisanal winery located in Port Williams. The vineyard is planted on the sandy- clay slopes of a ridge overlooking the Wellington Dyke. The rich pastoral setting that embodies our unique microclimate, is bordered in the north by the basalt and granite of the North Mountain that rises from the shore of the Bay of Fundy. Begin your day a Nova Scotia wine enthusiast, and end it a Nova Scotia wine lover!

Finish your day overlooking Halifax Harbour while you have dinner at Murphy's on the Water.
