very informative excursion in a comfortable bus, too bad the fog socked in Peggy's cove.

Not much more than a ride
Geoffrey_C, Oct 2022
Driver was nice and bus was comfortable, but the “city tour” involved a quick bus ride through and we were just dropped off to run around the lighthouse for a bit. Lighthouse and area are beautiful, I was just expecting more of an actual tour than a bus ride to the attraction.
Excellent Day Trip!

Our bus tour driver was amazing at telling us history and telling us stories about the area. Also, Peggy's cove itself is incredible. We had lots of time to explore ourselves and see the area.
Mistakes from the beginningI
Sandy, Oct 2022
We lost a half day of vacation waiting for guide who later told us that they do not have a vehicle to transport 8 individuals (tho they accepted booking). Guide said that Viator cancelled our booking and Viator said Tour Company cancelled booking. We did finally get to Peggy's Cove for a short visit but nothing for Best of Halifax. I dont know if it was Viator or the Tour Company's fault but this excursion was a disaster from the start.
Mixup equals canceled tour

The description from Viator was not what was delivered. Therefore the company canceled our tour. They did, however, refund my money. Viator needs to do more fact checking about their descriptions.

We had a great tour guide and very much liked all of the stops and the whole experience. Hallifax is a beautiful town and we learned so much from Johnathan. Peggy's cove was beautiful and we had a great time visiting Hallifax.

Halifax Sept/Oct 2019
cmcclusk, Oct 2019
this was an enjoyable trip. the town tour is a typically town tour. the weather at the cove was a bit cold and windy the day we toured. the lighthouse and views are spectacular. the view when arriving to the lighthouse is breathtaking. wish the tour bus could have stopped for a picture. the one in my memory will have to do! 3 of us enjoyed a Peggy's Cover hot dog from a local vendor. Yes a hot dog.
not much there
ron6012, Sep 2019
we had a nice bus trip but Peggy's Cove didn't have much to see. It lasted 1;30 minutes. way too long as there is nothing to do there. 30 minutes tops. it needs to be combined with other sites

very informative excursion in a comfortable bus, too bad the fog socked in Peggy's cove. But that no one has any control over! would recommend for this stop

Great tour in rainy weather
Beverly Z, Jun 2019
We took this tour on a rainy day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information along the way. When we got to Peggy's Cove, we headed to the food truck for lobster rolls. They were delicious. Peggy's Cove is a quaint little town. I would have loved to be able to explore more, but the rain kept us inside. We left the tour knowing a lot more about Halifax than when we started!
