Pretty Little Town
, Oct. 2019
Peggy's Cove is a pretty little town. My only issue is that we didn't have quite enough time there. Once we arrived and had a bathroom break, listen to the guide's brief talk about lobsters, grab lunch at the lobster roll food truck, we didn't have enough time to walk to the lighthouse or shop. If you want to walk to the lighthouse, you might want to do that first.

Great day with a nice drive to Peggys Cove. Ed was a great tour guide, new the history, added plenty of humor and knew the tricks around town. He got us to Peggy's cove before the other tour buses and got us back to the cruise ship right on time. This is a must see !
A wonderful tour with Ed!

Our guide Ed had all the facts and forklore of the area. He was able to circumvent traffic so we weren't stuck in traffic. He was on time for the pickup and got us back by the agreed time. It was a beautiful drive there and back and many jokes along the way. Don't hesitate to book this tour. You won't be sorry
