Lunenburg and Mahone Bay Day Trip from Halifax
Your day trip through Nova Scotia begins with coach pickup from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax. After a 1.5-hour drive southwest, you'll arrive in Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed port town on Nova Scotia's South Shore.
Your kilted guide will lead you on an informative walking tour to introduce you to the city's highlights and interesting history. Learn about British colonial settlement in North America as you take in sights of unique architecture and design. Home to Lunenburg Academy, Nova Scotia's largest fishing fleet, Lunenburg is famous for its fishing culture and boat building. Your guide will entertain you with stories about bootlegging along the craggy coastline decades ago.
From Lunenburg, continue driving north along Mahone Bay, whose town of the same name is famous for its shoreline churches and picturesque beauty. Enjoy time to explore this remarkable seaside town and stroll past artisan galleries, century-old buildings, eclectic specialty shops, romantic restaurants, museums and inns, all exuding a unique charm blended with a modern-day feel.
For lunch, you may bring your own food or dine at a local restaurant. After your tour, relax on the drive back to Halifax.

There seemed to be a mix up, so our tour started late. We were picked up by a gentlemen who was supposed to have the day off. His name was Mark and he could not have been friendlier or more helpful. We had a wonderful and informative day and we would recommend this tour to anyone.

After a short delay due to an admin error, the tour set out to Lunenburg. The driver David was very informative about Halifax and the surrounding area. He also provided lots of data about Lunenburg, Mahone Bay and the adjoining countryside. The Walking tour of Lunenburg was excellent and the lady leading the tour provided a great deal of information about the town and its history.
