Nova Scotia is one of the most beautiful parts of the world (who sez I'm biased??). There are many different topographies, cultural aspects & biologies all within a day trip from Halifax. Halifax itself is probably the most historic piece of real estate in North America. There are an abundance of forts, museums & parks here & a variety of things to do.
I have many tours that originate out of Halifax: 3 hour City/Harbour Tour (a real surf'n'turf); 4 hour Halifax/Peggy's Cove (Popular with cruise ship people); 5 hour Blomidon/Bay of Fundy Tour (Best arranged in advance to coincide with low tide) & a South Shore/Lunenbourg Tour (A beautiful coastal drive to a UNESCO Heritage City. Of course any thing that you wish to see in Nova Scotia can be arranged with enough advance warning - even a 5 niter to Cape Breton!!
These are very personalised tours that I provide so my best trip is with couples or families or friends travelling together who have done some research on the area & have specific interests. I need to know in advance about any special needs ie: wheelchairs, anticipated rest room needs (this is a rural province), meal requirements etc.
The farther in advance you book the more you have in restaurant & accomodation choices.
