Upon arrival to the cove you will be given plenty of free time in which you can explore the area around the historical lighthouse, stroll along the ocean looking for tidal pools, head into the village to watch the fishermen come and go, or go shopping in one of the small boutiques and shops. After exploring Peggy’s Cove, you will head back to downtown Halifax where you will stop at Citadel Hill where a historical guide will be waiting to take you on an amazing tour.

    Lyle was an excellent guide. It was a very informative tour. Our guide gave us a bit of extra time at Peggy's Cove which was nice but it would be nice if the tour company could build in a little more time to spend there.

    Excellent guide! I learned about this incredibly beautiful and special area of Nova Scotia. Even though there was a little rain, it didn’t dampen my spirit or that of my wonderful guide. The ride there and back was super comfy and scenery was amazing along the way. The supper of lobster was also superb! So grateful to have been able to visit a place on my bucket list! Worth every penny!!

It was just what I was looking for. After spending the beginning of the week at a work function, I just wanted to relax and unwind before heading home to Ontario. I book a short tour out to Peggy's Cove and a tour of the Citadel....it was fantastic. Will definately recommend
