I searched for many things to do in Halifax and came across this wonderful your group. I called ahead to confirm availability and chose the trip that matched by schedule. I was surprised at their integrity and charm. Ryan was very friendly and our host for the day, Jillian, was gregarious and lively. We took a joke to cape split... More

I just returned from a wonderful 4 day 3 night guided tour in the Highlands of Cape Breton. I agreed to join a friend but hadn't ever planned to do something like this in my own province, my trips are always planned outside of Canada since I want to experience incredible sights and meet people from different countries. How very... More

Best experience!! The best way to see the majestic island of Nova Scotia is with Great E.A.R.T.H Expeditions. This was our second tour... First was Once Upon a Tide and most recent was the 4 day trip to Cape Breton. Our tour guide Rebecca was a knowledgeable guide who became a true friend. She was ready to show the group... More

JILLIAN made the trip!! She was outstanding!!! We were picked up at the terminal from our Holland America Maasdam cruise. A bit late but once she arrived, all was forgotten. She was a wealth of information regarding Halifax and the surrounding areas. We stopped at the Gardens first for a bathroom break and pictures. Next we drove to our hike... More

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
