I've only been on one trip with this group so far, but it's left a strong impression on me and I'll be sure to book with them again when I return to the Halifax area! The prospect bay area was absolutely beautiful and the waters were calm and perfect for kayaking. I've only kayaked a few times previously, and although... More

we went on both the Peggy's Cove trip and the Kayak and Hiking Trip. Ryan and Mia were both very knowledgeable and helpful in every way. It was great to go off the beaten track and to experience Halifax from an insiders perspective.

Did the Lunenberg tour recently. Awesome trip! The group was small and friendly. Tour Guide Maya did a fabulous job guiding us through lovely nature as well as the tour of the town. Wonderful "combo" town/nature tour for those who like a little of both. The tour was appropriately ranked "moderate" - some hiking over rocks/boulders/eroded trails - and very... More

Want to see outside of the city? I went on a tour that included a stop at Sugar Moon Maple Farms, a 2.5 hour hike, a lovely lunch and a short hike through the Wentworth Valley to a waterfall. Plus saw the Nova Scotia countryside. The tour guide, Lynn was very informative and a great guide. This company offers a... More

This was a fantastic day! I really cannot say enough how much I enjoyed this walking tour. Our guide Lynn was fantastic, she knew where she was going, was funny, personable and knowledgeable about the area and the edible vegetation. She kept the hike at a great pace so we could all follow easily but it didn't drag. The lunch... More

My nieces and I went on the Lunenburg and Mahone Bay recently. What a wonderful day we had! Our guide was friendly, courteous and informed. The lunch was perfect, as it was curtailed to our vegetarian needs. I would highly recommend this company.

We selected two hiking and sightseeing tours lasting about half the day each. Neither is for someone who cannot walk rocky or forested ground. The company offers various tours which can be easier or harder than what we chose. Both were 100% what we hope to experience. Could not have been happier. Guides were engaging, well informed, and fun to... More

I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend a tourist company based out of Nova Scotia Canada that provided me and our fellow hiking group an experience that no dollar value can be placed upon. Great Earth Expeditions took us to several "diamond in the rough" places throughout this beautiful province most notably the Cape Split attraction. This... More

We joined Ryan for an all day kayaking and hiking tour in early August, 2015. It was the best day of our entire vacation! We went kayaking in the morning and hiking in the afternoon. We ate lunch outside overlooking the water. He provided the lunch which was also great! The kayaking was out on the edge of the ocean... More

My daughter and I vacationed in Halifax over the Labor Day 2015 weekend. We toured with Great E.A.R.T.H both days, and in both cases the excursions were excellent. Our guide knew Halifax well, having spent 25 years in its military and currently teaching in its public schools. These were close groups - six to ten travelers, from diverse parts of... More
