Learn, explore and capture Halifax with our local photographers as we showcase our favourite photo spots and secret vantage points to help you make the most of your travel images from our old port city.

Historic Halifax

We've designed our Halifax tour to reveal a story chronologically through the city's architecture, with an emphasis on visual gems that inspire a photographer's eye and imagination, and we'll highlight the forces that are shaping our bustling city today. With our spacious Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, we can drive to hidden secrets away from the usual tourist spots to spend more time exploring the unique sites we visit.

A few of the spots we may showcase include; the Dartmouth waterfront, historic Lake Banook, St. George's Round Church, our new Central Library, the art deco Bank of NS, and more. Plus, our tours are flexible so that we can bring you to the special events, festivals and exhibitions that make Halifax and the Maritimes unique in North America!
