About Van Tours of Nova Scotia
Van Tours of Nova Scotia operates sightseeing tours through Halifax, Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, Grand Pre' and other interesting places throughout the province of Nova Scotia. These are guided tours narrated by experienced guides. We offer sightseeing tours to visitors who are here for extended stays or for short visits, such as those arriving on cruise ships and no matter the length of your Nova Scotia vacation we can create a private tour that is guaranteed to entertain. Your guided tour will be conducted in an air conditioned, fully insured, late model minivan that holds up to six people. Minivan seating allows ease of conversation within your group while being close to the direct narration of your guide. The van loads and exits easily for the walk about portions of the tour which will allow many opportunities for both the amateur and professional photographer. We would like to stress that if you are thinking of touring Nova Scotia a tour can be designed around your preferences. Likewise, if it is a tour of Halifax and Peggys’ Cove that you are thinking of we can customize this tour as well to cater to your interests. There is even an option to enjoy local foods such as Lobster or similar sea food or you might be entertained by a visit to a functioning maple syrup facility. The choices abound.
