Overview
This relaxed day tour along the coast south of Halifax fits a lot in without feeling hurried. A number of destinations are on the itinerary, but there’s no fixed schedule, so you can see where the day takes you. Spend time taking in the sights at Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, Queensland Beach, the Lunenburg Historic District, and more. End the day at a vineyard to enjoy some tastings and admire the views.

We booked the one day tour of Peggy's Cove, Lunenburg, and Annapolis Valley. It was definitely one of the highlights of our recent trip to Nova Scotia. Sam and Gabrielle were wonderful guides! They had so many interesting stories and shared historical facts along the way. We appreciated their flexibility and were more than accommodating when we mentioned we'd be interested in a brief stop near Oak Island and then again to do some wine tasting. It was an absolutely delightful day!

Alternative Routes is amazing! We took the one day Peggy’s cove trip and the next day a 3 day PEI trip. Sam was an amazing tour guide, who is so knowledgeable of the area and things to do and places to eat… Greenwich beach was a memory of a lifetime! Can’t wait to go back and use alternative routes again! Thanks again Sam

Alternative routes is the best way to see Nova Scotia & PEI! I did the three day PEI tour and the day trip to Peggy's Cove & it was amazing! Sam is so nice and very accommodating. She told us so much about the island and recommended restaurants & shops to visit. I liked how flexible she was and if she saw something she thought we'd like she stopped to show us. Greenwich beach was my favorite part! Loved the deep sea fishing boat tour and fishing for the first time! Cooking lobster on the beach was definitely an experience I'll never forget! Anyone who wants to see Nova Scotia in a day needs to check out Alternative Routes!!
