I took the Cape Breton trip with Great Earth Expeditions. It was really good fun I had a fantastic time. Our guide Jesse was really good and had a wealth of knowledge about all sorts of nature and wildlife at Cape Breton. We covered loads of ground and saw tons of wildlife. We took the kayaking tour and bird watching... More

We recently did a beautiful Hirtle Beach/Gaff Point hike with Great EARTH. There were 5 of us, including our energetic, informative, fun guide, Jillian, who made a delicious lunch for us as well. . We especially appreciated the flexibility of Ryan, the director, who worked with us and agreed to a morning pick up in front of our hotel in... More

We recently completed the Aug 21 Cape Breton chronicles tour. Our group of 11 was great, Jesse our guide went above and beyond to meet our needs. The Skyline trail with a moose available for photos 10m away, the sea kayaking and the puffin expedition were superb. It was great to share our meals together and not a bad 40$... More

My group was 8 people, 9 including Jesse Moore our guide. I understand what Advisor T is saying - a 12 person group with lots of luggage would be a challenge, but 8 was an ideal size. Unfortunately it's next to impossible to predict the group's size in advance. One suggestion I have is to have a place to store... More

I participated in the 4-day Great EARTH Expeditions Tour "Cape Breton Chronicles". I had a lot of fun, the activities were great and our guide Jesse was knowledgable and worked hard to make the trip enjoyable for everyone! My one concern mirrors that of the last individual who reviewed this tour company (Susan8558), which was the size of the group.... More

Thanks for your feedback on your touring experience with us.

I took the Cape Breton 4 day tour as well as the 1 day Bay of Fundy tour. The Bay of Fundy trip featured some great scenery as well as a cool market and winery. Our tour guide, Jill, was lovely. There was some confusion with pick up locations and as a result we waited 40 minutes for the van... More

We appreciate your feedback. We take total responsibility for the pick up confusion as we have outgrown our door-to-door pick up and drop off service as we are one of the most popular tour companies in all of Nova Scotia and will in the future expect our clients to meet us at a pick up point instead. Concerning the Cape... More

I loved our two tours with Great EARTH Expeditions. Our guide Jillian was the best. 1st tour was to Hirtles Beach, Gaff Point, Lunenberg and Mahone Bay. The 7 kms walk and hike at Hirtles Beach and Gaff was beautiful and amazing. The site seeing was phenomenal and worth the hike. Lunch was perfect. Lunenberg was very nice to visit... More

We had the most wonderful experience with our photographer guide Jullian. We were a group of only 4 so lots of personal attention and instruction. We were presented with so many photo opportunities through out the lovely city of Halifax that included the Cidadel, Halifax Public Gardens - where we had a picnic lunch of all local products - and...

This was a four day tour which packed in a lot of great activities including some great hikes in some beautiful locations (my favourite was on The Cabot Trail and seeing moose for the first time). There is also a 3 hour whale watching boat tour, an eco sea kayaking trip with a very experienced guide who shares a lot... More
