Halifax: City Highlights Van Tour with Citadel Hill Visit

1. 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.

What people are saying about Point Pleasant Park

our tour specialist Leanne started our trip at the Pier area from its south to northern part of the pier, she said that the Canadian Naval Fleet are stationed in Halifax. After a few turns in the downtown area we proceed to the Fairview Lawn Cemetery to visit the 150 victims from the sinking of Titanic in April 15, 1912. Leanne also told us the unfortunate Halifax Explosion in 1917 , just 5 years later after the Titanic sinking, involving 2 ships that were Collided, the Mont Blanc who were full of explosives and Immo. The last part of the tour is the visit at the Halifax Citadel National Historical Site. We fully thanks our tour specialist Leanna for her rich knowledged about the history of some events that happened in Halifax. Me and my Christine would highly recommend your tour company.
