3. Halifax: City Highlights Van Tour with Citadel Hill Visit
Explore Halifax — the City of Trees — with a local guide on a van tour with a skip-the-security-line entry ticket to the historic Citadel Hill. Learn about the city’s rich history and local culture from your guide who will tell you stories as you drive past iconic attractions.
Be greeted at your downtown Halifax hotel and begin your fully guided tour in the comfort and style of a van. Head to your first stop, Citadel Hill — one of Canada’s most visited national historic sites and a major attraction in the city’s downtown core.
There, hop out of your van to walk through the grounds. Learn about the military history of the hill and see the Highlander reenactment interpreters dressed in traditional uniforms from the 1800s.
Next, enjoy a fully narrated drive, passing multiple points of interest such as Point Pleasant Park, Halifax Port, national historic site Pier 21, and the Halifax Seaport Market — the oldest, continuously operating farmers market in North America.
Continue to see the bustling Halifax Waterfront, an iconic brewery — Alexander Keith’s, as well as the lush City Gardens. See Fairview Lawn Cemetery, which is best known as the final resting place for over 100 victims of the sinking of the Titanic.
Listen to your guide's ongoing highlights and tips about the surrounding area along your drive before being dropped back off at your hotel downtown.
