Has anyone done the RCCL excursion "top 10 best of Halifax tour".

Just wondering if it is any good and did you have enough time at the stops.

I've never done the tour but in looking at where the tour goes and how much time you have, it seems to be a typical rccl excursion with limited time in each place. The other places mentioned are in the City and the amount of time you'll need will prob depend on your interest in each place.

It sounds like the tour ends at the Harbourfront. If so, you might want to see if you can get off the tour there and walk back to the ship (20 mins).

Did you end up doing this tour? My husband and I are considering it as a good overview of the area and as a way to get to see the things that both of us are interested in (Peggy's Cove, Titanic).
