About
The Cabot Trail Discovery Tour explores Nova Scotia’s most iconic road trip. From the rugged coastlines and majestic mountains to the charming small fishing villages, this tour provides breathtaking viewpoints, endless photo opportunities, and local culinary experiences. We follow the coastline as we climb and descend mountains and traverse the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Picturesque examples of typical Nova Scotian fishing villages dot the Cabot Trail’s winding roads. Hear the crash of the ocean against the craggy stone shorelines, feel the sand between your toes, and smell the salt air at the many coastal stops along the 300-kilometre journey.

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

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.

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.

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.
