    The Halifax Public Gardens were full of a variety of flowering plants, bushes, and trees. Obviously, great work was done to keep this garden looking fresh. Even in November, these plants were still relatively colorful. There were also plenty of benches, tables, and chairs in this space. I liked the bridges over the stream, and I enjoyed the many statues throughout the park. There was a gazebo in the center of the park, and there was also a very big lake. It was free admission to enter this space. There was parallel parking on the nearby streets.

    Extensive boardwalk offering great views of the water, combined with history, arts, shopping and numerous places to eat.

    The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. The ceilidh was fun. Beautiful building with lots of history. Only negative, they allow small children on the tours; the children lacked interest and were somewhat disruptive and took away from the experience. I would have given the tour a 5 star if it wasn’t for the children attending.

    On a cold, blustery June day, I stopped in more to get out of the rain than to visit a distillery—and to have a mid-day drink. Well, it’s five o’clock somewhere☺ I had a special request: Instead of an iced rum cocktail, I asked for a straight-up JD Shore “Black Rum” heated, like in old movies where a baron heats brandy over a candle flame. Immediately the chill left my bones.

    Not until returning to Florida did I learn that Halifax Distillery was founded a decade ago by Julie Shore and Arla Johnson, both from my native North Carolina [specifically, Belmont, Gaston County]. Julie’s ancestry includes generations of master distillers, from whom she learned the craft. Arla and Julie started distilling vodka given the bountiful Prince Edward Island potatoes available. According to the website, Julie “is the only female Master Distiller in Canada to have an award-winning vodka.”

    Come visit for a distillery tour and sample whatever the “spirit” moves you☺

    This is an Erik only review as Cheryl did not go on this trip. I had ice cream here on August 23, 2023 and August 25, 2023. Pretty simple affair of getting in line, ordering, paying and enjoying the ice cream. The service was good and the ice cream was also good. Just I note I did not see a dairy free option on the menu. I would definitely get ice cream from here again.

    I went on the Ice Wine tour - it was fantastic! The hosting winery was beautiful! The venders were very polite and knowledgeable ! I thought I lost my tickets - so I bought more - but 5 minutes later a staff member sought me out - I’d left them in the bathroom! Martin and JD were excellent drivers - great sense of humour - we had a little unforeseen hiccup with the van - but it was handled very professionally. I would definitely recommend this tour!!

    Great tour - first all the great sights on land followed up with the boat ride — Abigail was absolutely awesome and funny as heck … I just wish we learned a little more about her because she was so shy talking about herself LOL

    Captain Caleigh Brodie and first mate Tineke were incredible hosts and provided my friend and I with a spectacular sight seeing trip. Surprisingly this experience was one of my highlights of this summer.

    The Captain and Tineke (not to be confused with The Captain and Tinnelle) were engaging, took time to explain the concepts of sailing and answered any questions. They smiled a lot. They also created a safety first atmosphere that allowed us to fully enjoy the moment.

    I’d highly recommend the tour, and if you’re lucky, you’ll find yourself in the same capable hands that I did.

    So you’re looking for advice, eh? One word GO! That’s it. Spend your money, save your money, steal it, do what I did, spend the kids inheritance. Just go. No need for photos here. Lots on the web. And lastly, the people you meet will outshine the horses and seals.

    I rented a road/touring bike. I rode approximately 550 km & my bike performed very well both on the highways & the trails. I would recommend this shop to others.

    Amazing tour with our guide AL. We did the Halifax/Peggy's Cove Tour. He has so knowledgable and friendly. We visited many sites, a few off the beaten path. I highly recommend this company, great communication, wonderful private tour, fast meet up off the ship, and beautiful sights to see. Best tour guide and tour of our trip.

    Ryan was perfect! We had such a great day with him. We loved that he was so passionate and knowledgeable about his hometown. We were almost ready to move there after hearing his love for Halifax! We asked for specifics to our day and everything was covered. Even when we expressed a desire to have some fresh fish for lunch and not at a sit-down restaurant, he found a perfect side of the road spot to eat that was delish! We had physical limitations for some of our group and he adjusted everything so all could participate. He shared a wealth of information with us about Halifax and it was interesting to listen to. He even answered our barrage of questions! His ride was comfortable and we appreciated that he had a microphone so we could hear him perfectly (a few of us have hearing challenges). One of the most memorable experiences in our day was a lovely hike to some beautiful scenery and him playing his guitar and singing local folk songs. He's incredibly talented and meant to be a tour guide. The whole day and experience is a memory engrained in our hearts forever! Truly would use him again in a heartbeat!

    Karl was THE BEST!!! Very attentive…knowledgeable on the area and history..fantastic sense of humour….went out of his way to show us sights off the beaten path. Karl took the time to get to know each and every one in our group of 5 classy old birds.
    We saw more in 2 days then what we could have hoped for…If we ever come back to Halifax…..Karl is the first person we will call….
    Thanks again for a wonderful 2 days.
