This was a fantastic tour. We had a small group of 7 people. Ages ranged from late 20's to mid 50's (?). So it wasn't just a bunch of youngsters.
Our tour included many highlights of the beautiful Cabot trail and we did some amazing hikes. None of the hikes were too strenuous, and all of them were fascinating. There were bathroom or outhouses everywhere we stopped, so you never had an issue about having to wait to use the facilities. We saw many kinds of Eco-systems within the one trip. Woods, towns, beaches, waterfalls, marshes, and small fields. Lots of flora and fauna including the biggest variety of mushrooms and fungi that I have ever seen in one place.
Accommodations were at the International Hostel in Pleasant Bay. This hostel is on the rustic side, but provided comfortable beds and a warm friendly atmosphere.
The whale watch was at an extra cost, but I really enjoyed it and saw a whole family of Pilot Whales.
We saw Moose, dramatic sunsets and interesting birds.
If you love nature and the outdoors, this is the trip for you!
