Enjoy a custom tour of Halifax as we showcase our favourite iconic sites in downtown, and a few gems hidden off the beaten path! We ensure you get great shots of our historic city - whether that is with your smart phone, tablet or camera. Our tours are flexible so that we can bring you to the special events, festivals and exhibitions that make Halifax unique while building a tour specific to your interests. With a local photographer as your guide, they'll share their favourite photo spots and secret vantage points to reveal the beauty of our hometown!

That means that if you have been here before - we'll take you places you would never find on your own! Or if this is your first time to Halifax, we will showcase our city's beautiful and historic venues and help you photograph them in new ways. With help from the NS Archives, we put a major focus of this tour on sharing historical imagery to visually tell the story of our unique port city with old photos, maps, paintings and fascinating film clips.
