Tour description provided by Viator

While in port in Halifax, explore the city in a fun, scenic, leisurely way -- by bike! On this 2-hour shore excursion, follow your guide on an easy ride from Halifax Harbour to several notable locations including South End, Point Pleasant Park and Halifax Commons. You’ll experience the city up close and enjoy plenty of photo opportunities.

This small-group bike tour is limited to eight people, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.

When your cruise ship docks in Halifax, meet your local guide on Lower Water Street -- a 10-minute walk from the port -- for a brief safety orientation. After strapping on your helmet and hopping on your provided bike, you're ready to embark on your 7-mile (11-kilometer), 2-hour Halifax bike tour.

Beginning at Halifax Harbour, enjoy an easy ride to the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market, Point Pleasant Park, downtown Halifax, Public Gardens, Citadel Hill, Province House and up into the historic South End region.

Your guide will provide an overview of the city’s rich history during your ride. Weave your way back through tree-lined corridors to the heart of the city, the Halifax Commons, and enjoy several photo opportunities along the way.

This bike route avoids hills and difficult areas, making it suitable for all riders, including families. You’ll be taken back to your original departure point to conclude your tour.
