We had a fantastic outing with Ryan and Jillian! The weather did not cooperate but the adventurous group of 12 braved the weather. We kayaked in Prospect Bay, stopped at a secluded beach and wandered around a little, ate lunch in an unexpected venue, but it was warm and dry and they had hot coffee! We continued the day with...

I did the Lunenburg and Gaff point trip. An excellent itinerary but would have been much better with a more experienced and knowledgeable guide.

My children (10 and 12 yrs) and I signed on with Ryan's tour without any prior knowledge. We were picked up at 8am and were dropped off around 4pm. During that period we had a fantastic time. We kayaked on Prospect Bay, found a hidden beach, hiked along rocky cliffs, learned about local flora (wild lilies, pitcher plants, wild cranberries,... More

My husband and I booked this adventure tour, first one we've ever done, and were not disappointed. Our tour guide Rebecca was excellent, very knowledgeable and considerate of our needs and what we wanted to experience on this tour. The trail itself was a beautiful hike with easy to moderate technicality. I hiked in runners which weren't a problem, my... More

We were fortunate to have the chance to hike the <5 mile trail and Lunenburg and Mahone Bay. Mark was a wealth of knowledge on the geography and geologic features of the area and paced the hike on the abilities of the group. If you take this tour, it's recommended you wear boots or shoes that offer ankle support -... More

I recently went on the Peggy's Cove excursion. I had the pleasure of getting to know the owner of this company, Ryan. He has created tours that are memorable and hand-crafted unlike any other options I found. The excursion was unique because of a few factors. The group was small (unlike a big tour bus) - we had 5 people... More

Small - group day trips are the best! There were four tourists, the driver (learning the route and info) and our guide, Jillian. The morning was rainy and gloomy in Halifax, but we met at 8 am and left the city for the Bay of Fundy. Still rainy a bit when we stopped at a farmer's market for coffee or... More

I did the Peggy's Cove tour and was a totally of 3 other people on my tour. My tour guide Jill was excellent. She was immensely knowledgable and she was very accommodating for bathroom breaks. The lunch that was provided was extremely delicious and there were many healthy options. I also liked the tour ran exactly on time. It would... More

We took two day trips with this company. The first was Peggy's Cove Rock Walk and the second was Down by The Bay (Bay of Fundy). These are not run of the mill tours. You get to go off the beaten path. Small groups, casual and well organized. The guides were really great and very knowledgeable.(Our guide for the first... More

If you love nature, enjoy going for walks/hikes in stunning settings, like going to places most tourists do not go to and finding out more about the history, traditions and wildlife of Nova Scotia, I can strongly recommend Great Earth Expeditions. I had a great time on each of the three tours I went and I really enjoyed the unique... More
