    Cabot Trail Van Tour
    We picked the right tour but the wrong day. We had 7 people plus Frank, our driver and tour guide. Frank was great: born and raised on Cape Breton Island, he had many tales and anecdotes, and related much history about the area. The problem is that we couldn't see much of what he told us about because of the weather- Hurricane Lee had just come through and almost the whole day was rainy and foggy. Frank said it was the worst sightseeing trip he ever conducted.

    Excellent guide, route & overall experience!
    I, my husband and another couple had the pleasure of having Harry as our guide. He was excellent—attentive to everyone’s needs, informative without overloading us with details, open to questions, warm, and he had a good sense of humour. He provided plenty of planned stops, and allowed unplanned ones for photos. We were delighted when he sat at our restaurant table for a leisurely lunch, while we admired his Toronto Maple Leafs socks! The cost for 8.5 hours was very good value for the money. We were very pleased with every aspect of our experience!

    Great tour of a stunning place
    We had a great day out with Frank. The bus was comfortable and roomy , Frank was a very good driver and host and the scenery absolutely stunning. We stopped at lots of places to take in the beauty and stretch our legs. We had 5 wonderful guests on our trip, and had a lovely time together ~ ended up dining together that night and will hopefully meet up again in the various different countries we came from. We did the whole trail and it was all lovely. The booking was easy and the tour really well organised. Highly recommend.

    Great Scot Tour- Shared Cruise Excursion
    Jerry was our guide for the day. He was on time with a comfortable passenger van. Another couple from our cruise ship and us made for a total of 4 on the tour. The excursion had lots of scenic driving, but we had time to walk at the Edison museum and the Highland Village at our own time- meeting back up at a time set by Jerry. We really enjoyed the costumed actors that were stationed around the village . We also opted to have time to walk in Baddeck instead of a sitdown lunch. Jerry is a great representative of the friendly people who live in a beautiful scenic place. Would recommend this tour company.

    Terrific tour
    Our cruise had a pretty short stay in the area, but CDT still gave a wonderful overview despite our time limitations. Driver custom picked spots to give us best views and was extremely informative. Pre-tour, office staff very helpful in answering our questions. So glad we chose this tour and this tour company.

    Great Day!!
    We had a great time on the Cabot Trail Tour. Our driver was Frank & we only had three other people with us so a total of 6. We got to know everyone. Frank was able to talk on the history & going on now. Just a great day!!

    Super informative tour of a beautiful island
    One could not have asked for a more gracious, kind and informative tour guide than Brian. He took excellent care of our group and provided a plethora of info on Cape Breton as an island native. His narrative was beyond thorough!!!! The great disappointment was we had a very foggy and gloomy day and visibility was so limited in the key places. That being said - he made what could have been a super bummer of a day due to weather - which no one except the Creator has control of - into a delightful excursion. The photo stop and scenery at Green Cove along the Cabot trail - made it totally worthwhile!

    GREAT DAY IN CAPE BRETON PARK!
    Had a fantastic day with Harry ,a local citizen who gave us the great tour. Incredible scenery and views along with his great knowledge and history of the area.We stopped at a great little pub for lunch by the water. We saw areas we would have missed if we were driving it ourselves ,plus able to enjoy the magnificent scenery without the worries of driving the roads. I would recommend the Cabot trail tour to anyone who wants a great day of spectacular sight seeing.Five Stars!

    Great Experience
    It's the only way to see the Cabot Trail in our opinion. My husband and I did the small group tour the last week of August on a beautiful sunny day. Our driver and guide was Brian. He was patient, informative, friendly and did a great job. It was nice my husband could relax and enjoy the scenery since he wasn't driving. I was concerned about the length of the tour but there were plenty of stops along the way. It was nice getting into areas where the large tour buses could not go and hearing about the fishing industry and history of this area. This tour was made our time spent on Cape Breton even more special.

    Fabulous experience
    Don’t hesitate to book this tour! Harry was our driver and guide. A local who made us feel like it was a very personal guided tour experience. Nothing was too much trouble and we were provided with lots of great information as well as all the best stops along the trail. The van was new and spotlessly clean and Harry was a careful and attentive driver. With this tour service available, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to drive themselves around the trail. Excellent value and worth every penny.

    "Mini Cabot Trail"
    This excursion might be ok if you was to take it in the fall to see the foliage color change but other than that there wasn't much to see or do. Riding in a mini van for about 4 hours looking not seeing much. Not worth the money.

Misty was very helpful and accommodating when we were making our reservation. She easily and happily arranged for us to be picked up at our rental house in a private van. Jerry, her husband, our driver, showed up early which was great! There was a bottle of sanitizer on each door. We felt safe as Jerry was a cautious driver and his van was very clean. He was knowledgeable, informative, personable and friendly. He was a good sport and put up with all of our teasing! The sound system worked very well and he was easy to hear and understand. He was excellent at adapting the tour on the fly to accommodate our wishes. He did not waste time looking for "good spots". He knew exactly where to take us for the best experiences. He picked a perfect spot for our lunch stop. The tour was a good pace and we did not feel rushed. We were extremely pleased and happy with our tour and highly recommend Cabot Trail Discovery Tours. Thanks again Misty and Jerry. From Bev, Karl, Stephanie and Mike

We booked Cabot tours through email. Misty, the owner was amazing and very focused on customer service. She is an excellent communicator and her goal is to please her customers. She picked us up in Inverness and gave us a tour, scheduled a sail boat ride and brought us to a local brewery. She told us about the area and knew her history.

The second day her husband, Jerry, took us on a full day trip around Cabot Trails. We stopped at many beautiful location. We had a seafood lunch at a great restaurant. Jerry was also very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We had a wonderful day with him.

I must say that they both did an excellent job showing us around. They really were very knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel so welcome.

If you ever need a tour in this area, I would highly recommend them.

It was a pleasure getting to spend time with your family. It is always easy to show people around when they have similar interests and up for anything. We are happy that you enjoyed your time in Cape Breton and we were able to share some of this time with you.

Our group of ten had a fun day exploring Caroline's Cape Bretton. This tour was the most professional tour of all of the tours we took during our 8 days of visiting ports. They had an invoice system and replied to email prior to the day of the tour. She picked us up at the port, gave us a brochure overview of the tour on Cape Bretton and went through what our plans were for the day before we got started. We made several stops to take photos as we passed the Bras d'Or lakes on our way to the Cape Bretton Highlands National Park via the Cabot Trail. We stopped at The Dancing Goat for a bio break and more coffee. They had some great cookies here too! We spotted a noted film actor having coffee with friends. Caroline knew where all of the good stops were for picture taking. The coast near Inverness was beautiful. Caroline's knowledge of Cape Bretton and the stories she told brightened up our cloudy day. She loves this island. She took us to L'abri for lunch. Food was wonderful. She placed our lunch order before we got there, speeding up the process. We saw the same actor having lunch with friends there too. There was some road construction on our way back to town, so Caroline made the detour and found us a great stop on the Middle River as the sun peaked out. They may add it to the tour. We were back in good time to board the ship. The van was very comfortable and she had a PA system that made it easy to hear her. I highly recommend this company and Caroline!

We enjoyed our tour immensely despite the colors we expected to see were not like we thought it would be thanks to Hurricane Dorian!! Graham shared loads of info. We would highly recommend this tour. Also the owner of this company, Misty, showed great customer service skills.

Six of us were on a cruise together. We booked a private tour as I wanted to go to the Gaelic College on Cape Breton Island. We were picked up promptly at our cruise ship and what a day we had. There were demostrations and beatutiful music and dance performances at the college. After that we did a little shopping, saw some beautiful scenery, had a few beers at a local brewery. The day was perfect and I think we all hugged our tour guide (or wanted to). Highly recommended.
