What To Expect

Lunenburg is a port town on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. Founded in 1753, the town was one of the first British attempts to settle Protestants in Nova Scotia in an effort to displace the French colonial Roman Catholic Acadians and indigenous Mi'kmaq. Old Town Lunenburg is one of only two urban communities in North America designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Considered to be the best surviving planned British colonial town in North America, you can still see the tall ships moored off the port and hear the smith’s hammer, while guided tours tell tales of lives lost on the ocean.
Lunenburg’s harbour-side streets are lined with unique shops and award-winning restaurants that blend with the well-preserved and colourfully painted historic homes, much of it like a living museum from the 18th century.

Peggy's Cove
Nova Scotia is home to over 160 historic lighthouses, but no beacon is as photographed as the one in the vibrant fishing village of Peggy’s Cove.
Built in 1915, Peggy’s Point Lighthouse still keeps watch over surging ocean waves and working lobster boats. Amble over giant rocks worn smooth by the sea and share in the view. The rocky coastline and ocean water around Peggy’s Cove is dangerous. Rogue waves (unpredictable, rough waves) commonly splash up over the rocks, even on calm, sunny days. Stay off the wet, dark rocks and do not swim.
The safest way to enjoy the view is to make sure you are walking on dry, white rocks.

Tour of a beautiful part of Nova Scotia’s coastline with fascinating history
Steven B, 13-11-2022
An informative small group tour with Paul as an expert guide. Paul will pick you up from your hotel, drive you the most scenic routes, and provide local insight and history. On our tour he beat the big bus tours to Peggy’s Cove so that our group of six were the only ones there (almost) and despite the fog, made it a great day out. If you only have one day travelling outside of Halifax, I’d really recommend this tour!
An exceptional tour of the regions outside of Halifax

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the half-day tour of Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg, and Mahone Bay. Our guide, Paul, was very knowledgeable about each area and provided a fascinating history lesson of Halifax and the surrounding area. He picked us up at the hotel right on time, and returned us to Halifax a little over six hours later. The lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove was an incredible site, and we were allowed sufficient time to see it up close and go to the gift shop. We spent 1.5 hours in the picturesque town of Lunenburg, where we had lunch and explored this lovely town. Mahone Bay was our last stop before returning to Halifax; there we went inside a restored Anglican Church that was breathtaking. We highly recommend this tour with Paul as your guide!
Five start is not enough!

It was a lovely trip, though the journey was long but worth it. Our guide Paul was super knowledgeable, had a great humour and very organized . Just wished we had more time in Peggy’s cove to be able to enjoy the surreal beauty of the village!
