My husband and I recently returned from Nova Scotia. While there we booked two tours with this company. I can not be more thrilled with these tours. They were small groups traveling in a van and very personal. While one destination was Peggy's Cove and the other the Bay of Fundy what makes them so great is the personal touch... More

I had the pleasure of going on "South Shore at your door" and the "Wentworth" tours. Not only did I forget to wear the right footwear but my tour guide Jesse, gave me HIS shoes, so I wouldn't miss out. Now that is service! After a delightful (and comfy) hike we had a delish lunch (something for everyone and tons... More

Such a fantastic trip - the scenery is beautiful and Jesse's love for the region, his joyful character and enthusiasm made the a very special experience. The group was fantastic, we all pitched in and had a grand old time. I'm not used to staying in hostels anymore and I was a bit concerned about it, but the hostel owners... More

I can't say enough about our love forNova Scotia. It was my first time and my husband second or third time. The people are so kind. Good hearted people and a back to basics way of life that we are longing for! My husband and I can't say enough good things about Cape Breton and especially Jessie for making this... More

Had an amazing time in Lunenberg and some amazing beach with an incredible giant rock wall created by the tides. Saw what I truly wanted to see in Nova Scotia and it was wonderful! Plus Jillian is an awesome young guide with great tunes on the ride. I may definitely come back for the Cape Breton tour.

Ryan and Gillian led us on a wonderful day of adventure on their padding and hiking tour. The day was overcast and a storm approaching, but Ryan gave us the confidence to go on. We are so glad we did. He modified our paddling route to ensure our comfort and safety. The scenery was spectacular. Gillian followed behind and made... More

This was a fabulous way to explore Cape Breton Island with a professionally trained Nova Scotia native. The four day trip schedule was timely and well communicated. The meal plan and options were described appropriately. We were even able to enjoy whole lobster from Pleasant Bay within just a few hours of being harvested from the sea - amazing! The... More

I had an enjoyable time with new... More

I took the day-long "Bird's Eye View" tour of Cape Split and the Bay of Fundy on July 1st, 2014 and it was spectacular! The tour guide was so professional, friendly and knowledgable. We saw Medford beach at low tide and the wonderful sandstone sea stacks followed by the main event, a 14 km roundtrip hike to the tip of... More
