Discover the heart and soul of the exciting city of Halifax as you get out and explore Nova Scotia's capital by coach and on foot. Your kilted guide will encourage your questions and share with you many stories of Halifax's past and present.

Begin with a transfer to the Citadel National Historic Site, which boasts an unparalleled view over the modern port of Halifax. Here you will meet members of the 78th Highlander Regiment. Step inside the fort to discover this historic site at your leisure.

A walking tour takes you down the hill past Halifax's 200-year-old Town Clock, Province House, the Scotiabank Centre and City Hall to Grand Parade. The latter was historically a military parade square and is now home to Halifax's oldest building -- St Paul's Anglican Church. At strolling pace, you'll explore the tree-fringed streets lined with elegant Victorian buildings en route back to the ship.

Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore on their own are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.

Please note: Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations.
