Daily / half daily bus tours from Halifax in MAY

Dear members,

I am searching for tour operators that offer bus trips from Halifax to

a) Peggy´s Cove

b) Lunenburg & Mahone Bay

c) Wine tours i. e. Annapolis Valley

My situation, that I will be in Nova Scotia in MAY and up to now I have not found any offer for that month. Also Ambassatours has no tours running in May. But I hope that there are some bus tour operators. I hope to hear from you soon and thanks a lot in advance.

Best wishes from Germany

Hi Martin,

If you go to www.novascotia.com you will find tours listed under things to "See & Do" You will find the van tours with fewer people will be a more personal experience than the bus tours. There are several listed as year round but here is a couple of them that might interest you.

I think you will find it difficult to find tours in May. However there may be some private tour operators as mentioned above who can help you.

If you wish to rent a car and drive we can give you lots of advice and point to information.

Excuse me for giving you the wrong web address for the wine tours.

Here's the correct one: www.novascotiawinetours.com

They advertise as running their tours from May 1st to Nov 30th, 2014

Thank you so much. The month of May is definitely a big problem. I also contacted Nova Scotia Tourism, but they mentioned Ambassador Tours although they only do their Double Decker Tours in Halifax but there is also none tours to the mentioned regions. As for the winetours I am really thankful for your idea, because I know that Canadian wines are absolutely fantastic. If anybody else has some ideas for coach operators or so, I am still waiting for some suggestions. I do not have any driving license and so I cannot rent a car.

Hey Martin,

In the tourist season you can have your choice and could actually walk on a tour to Peggy's Cove on the waterfront. But in May there just isn't enough people to have a tour and make it profitable.

If you are already booked into a hotel, call the concierge there and see if they can arrange something for you. The hotel staff in our city are very well connected and may know a private company that will take care of you.

CarrieD - if you'd read the post you'd know it was just the OP, who is based in Germany - not easy to call from there.

Here is the website for Molega Tours - there's an email address at the bottom.

I would try Ryan at Great Earth Expeditions http://www.greatearthexpeditions.com/ Great guide that is quite flexible - he does van tours with hiking or other outdoor elements included.
