Take in some of Halifax's top sights on a driving tour as you head out on a 90-minute drive to the seaside colonial town of Lunenburg. Its Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been beautifully preserved, and you'll enjoy exploring its charming harbor; the home port to Nova Scotia's sailing ambassador, the Bluenose II; colonial architecture; colorful shops; and sidewalk cafes on a self-guided stroll. Continue to Mahone Bay before reaching your next destination, Amos Pewter, where the resident artist will teach you the art of wax carving and finished pewter designs. After admiring the work, pick up a tool and try wax carving yourself. Then it's off to Acadian Maple Products to sample maple taffy candy, a delicious end to the day.

Special Notes:

The pewter workshop in Mahone Bay is optional. Guests not wishing to participate can enjoy free time in the village instead. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Amount of walking is at your discretion. There are numerous steps to get from the waterfront to the town, which is on a hill. Please note that on some voyages the duration of the tour will be based on the ship's time at port.
