This was about a 5-6 hr private tour. We started by going to the Halifax Public Gardens within the city and to the Citadel National Historic Site. Then on to Peggy's Cove. A very interesting small place with just a few shops and amazing vistas. We walked around and enjoyed the sea, in spite of the rain. Our guide brought... More

We had 2 trips...the first was south shore at our door and the second day we did the Peggy's cove tour. Jesse was our guide both days. The first day there was just two of us...and even though there was technically a program for the day, Jesse was so accommodating to what we wanted to do. Lunenberg was lovely. And... More

Jesse was our guide. We watched mega buses fill up for a similar tour and were blessed that there were 5 people on ours. Jesse was very accommodating, polite and informative. We first visited a few Halifax sites, but honestly we had been to those the day before. We took a nice hike through the barrens before we got to... More

We only had one day in Halifax (stopover off a cruise ship doing the Canada/New England itinerary) and I really wanted to get a feel for the town but yet still see the beautiful scenery the country has to offer. This tour really did it! We were able to walk off the ship and very quickly were picked up by... More

We learned about GREAT earth from their great reviews on Trip Advisor and they did not disapoint. Barry was very helpful in planning our trips and each of the 3 trips- to Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove and cape Breton was outstanding. Tours feature hiking (and in Cape Breton kayaking birding and whale watching )as well as "seeing the sights". The guides... More

I went on the Cape Breton trip in August and I can’t recommend it enough! Everything from my initial email/phone calls with Ryan (who was incredibly patient with my constantly dilly dallying about whether I could make the dates available!) through to the accommodation, food and activities were brilliant! Alec and Jesse led the tour and they were great fun,... More

Our day started on a chartered boat to McNab's Island in Halifax, NS. Beautiful, warm and sunny... the trip on the harbour was excellent and a lot of fun! Once on the island, our guide Ryan began to tell us some history and began taking us on a hiking tour around McNabs. It was so interesting to hear about early... More

I enjoy walking around the places when I go travelling. I know it's hard to explore maritime provinces without driving. When I was in frustration during planning, the page of Great E.A.R.T.H Expedition suddenly popped up. They provided several tours to some famous points like Peggy's Cove and Lunenberg. Finally, I decided to join the 8-hour tour to Lunenberg last... More

We did the full day tour - Margaret's Bay, Peggy's Cove, the Barrens. Ryan was exactly on time for picking us up. He was friendly and funny and patient with my boys and I. He was very knowledgeable about Nova Scotia and understandably proud. He even through in a few life lessons for my boys along with the historic facts.... More
