  • Tour of Historic Downtown Halifax
    The best way to see any city is through the eyes of the local people! We will see the sites and historical landmarks in the city that helped shape Halifax into what it is today, such as the Halifax Harbour, Georges Island, Pier 21, Citadel Hill, Grande Parade, St Pauls Church, Halifax explosion sites and some haunted areas, among others. I will also introduce you to local spots that you may not hear about in tourist brochures such as the best places to get donairs and seafood, places to hangout such as parks and public gardens. You will also enjoy some of the folk tales and urban myths that the locals here grew up with to really give you a feel for us Haligonians Because our weather here is quite unpredictable, this tour will be both outside and in, meaning I'll use my personal vehicle to chauffeur you around all of the above mentioned places in the downtown core region. I am flexible with the itinerary, so if you have a wish list of things to see in the downtown core of Halifax, I will be delighted to help introduce you to those places . Other things to note This tour is both inside a vehicle and outdoors walking. Please dress appropriate for the weather. Let me know of any physical disabilities so I can plan accordingly.
