Sam is a wonder! An entrepreneur with an adventurous soul makes for an amazing tour guide. She had facts and info at the ready and told stories along the way. It was a fabulous day out and about in Nova Scotia.

Sam did not also give us lifts. She explained as much...More

Hi, I took the tour in early June 2018, and her van seemed to fit 4 passengers comfortably. There were 3 of us on the tour that day, and it was great! I highly recommend it! Hope this info helps! - John M.
