You're About To Experience The Legacy Of Lunenburg...on a vintage horse drawn carriage
We offer 35 minute horse and buggy tours of Old Town Lunenburg
For more than 25 years, visitors from all over the world have been able to experience these wonderful narrated tours of Lunenburg. Trot in Time helps to bring history alive with experienced and knowledgeable drivers who guide you all through the Old Town.
There is a general story to be told for every tour but our drivers do their best to get to know you a little bit as they wind through the route and then they attempt to personalize each trip in order to meet your needs and interests. Don’t be shy to ask questions – all of our drivers are happy to try to help you make the most of your time in Lunenburg, along the South Shore and throughout the beautiful province of Nova Scotia.
The tour winds its way past most of the sites and points of interest. What a great way to see just what is on offer and to help plan your stay and determine the “must see” points of interest whilst the horses do all the work slogging up and down the hills of the fantastic town overlooking Lunenburg Harbour (Home of Bluenose II).

What a wonderful trip around the town to see the beautiful colour of the houses, architecture and history of this lovely village. Ruth and Ernie were an amazing duo that we had lots of fun with. Definitely the way to get around the streets. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and prices, a memorable part of our trip.
