Traveler Tips

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.
It would be much more pleasant with less visitors around.

Fall at Peggy Landing.
Donna_M, Oct 2022
We had a great lobster dinner at the Sou’wester Resturant; the waitress brought a hugh live lobster for us to examine; before she took it away to be cooked. A tasty fresh lobster; made our trip to Peggy’s landing a highlight of our fall Princess Cruise on the Enchanted. It was a lovely day and a wonderful tour by an extremely knowledgeable narrator. We were returned right to our ships door. An added blessing of our driver and narrator-. !
Lovely Day Trip

Great tour guide! Peggy’s Cove is a gem, lighthouse is beautiful. Lobster roll sandwich was delicious. Great day trip.
Too many people

so many guests, everyone arrived at same time. I counted 6 buses unloading at same time. Would be better to stagger arrive times. Too many people
Excellent Tour Guide, Not so great Cove...
Becky_D, Oct 2022
The tour guide was excellent. He had a great sense of humor, and still was able to show us many beautiful and memorable sites. Peggy's Cove was not exactly the best part of the trip. It was a great view, and the colorful houses were pretty, but it would have been enough to just slowly drive through the tiny town. How it got to be the main point of the tour is beyond me. A few "artisan" and souvenir shops, and pretty good lobster rolls at Tom's. I would not do this tour again.
The Best!

Our tour guide Carl and driver Dave were the best. Very patient with our bus load and made for a funny, wonderful trip!

Leslie was a great tour guide! She knew her history and geography of the area. We learned quite a bit about Halifax, Peggy’s Cove and the surrounding area. Dave did a great job at the driving.
A perfect day to Peggy's Cove

Comfortable ride to Peggy's Cove and got to spend plenty of unguided time exploring once we arrived. Beautiful visit !
Great tour with a fun...
Jason_C, Aug 2022
Great tour with a fun guide (Adina) and an excellent driver. Really appreciated learning so much. We could've had a bit more time on site, however. Trip back was also very much worth the price.
Fun but quick sight seeing trip
Skylar_S, Aug 2022
This was a great tour. Our guide was quite informative along the way. Its about 1he to the cove, about 90 minutes at peggy’s cove and then about 1hr back to halifax. I wouldnt plan on eating a sit down meal here if you want to explore around the light house. Felt like just enough time for us, especially with not being able to rent a car and go on our own.

Great Tour of Halifax and Peggy's

Loved hearing our guide Anneta's story's on the trip too and from the Cove. We were pleasantly surprised by all the "extra" touring/information about Halifax and area. A lovely morning for sure!

Highly recommended! Our Tour guide Adiba was so knowledgeable and a great storyteller ! I wish we had more time at Peggy’s cove - maybe 1.5 hours would be ideal time so not rushed !
Memorable Halifax Tour
Edith_C, Jul 2022
Walking and viewing rocks. Lobster demonstration was great, knowing how to identify male from female. The beautiful paintings from the local residence was excellent to watch. My favourite part of tour was tour guide.
Great Morning Trip
Marlon_B, Jul 2022
Great driver and tour guide, perfect amount of time at Peggy’s cove. Peggy’s cove was definitely worth the drive and a do not miss on a trip to Halifax.
Pretty Little Town
Carleen_C, 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.
Doris_Y, Oct 2019
A group of ten people to join this trip we are all happy. Driver is very professional and explained very detail.
