Your Private Jeep Tour to breathtaking local sites from Halifax
THE FAMOUS PEGGY'S COVE - Peggy's Cove is Nova Scotia's most popular tourist attraction and is a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia's Halifax Regional Municipality, which is famous for the Peggy's Point Lighthouse.
This tour features a drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove along the Lighthouse Trail. You will stop in Peggy's Cove and tour a variety of surrounding areas. As with all of my tours, it can be customized to suit your interests. Meal stops with various options are available along the route at an extra cost.
I have my standard 5 hour Peggy's Cove tour, but the demand last year was very high to have more time to see more sites and spend more time in the areas visited. The extra hour allows this flexibility and well worth the time added.
This extended 6 hour tour features a drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove along the beautiful Lighthouse Trail. You will stop in Peggy's Cove and tour a variety of surrounding areas. Along the way, visit local shops and museums, and get a feel for historical life in rural Nova Scotia. The choice is yours whether to keep the Jeep top up or top down with the wind in you hair in the 4x4 Jeep Wrangler.
For lunch enjoy Lobster, fish and chips and other local favorites at an additional cost.
A typical tour includes a stop to the Titanic Graveyard site, small fishing village of Lower Prospect/Terence Bay where you can walk to a small local Lighthouse on the rocky coastline (maybe find some sea glass on the beach), Peggy's Cove and Lighthouse, with access to local access to amazing views, meal/lunch stop & more. Options for other stops in may include Swiss Air Memorial, Peggy of the Cove Art Gallery & Museum, White Sails Bakery & Deli, Acadian Maple & Citadel Hill.
The tour may be adjusted as per customer request.
