I have been traveling with Kelly and Terrapin Tours since 2012 when she took us to Booth Bay Harbor, Maine on her very first tour. I have just completed my 37 trip in 7 years. I am one lucky traveler having found Terrapin Tours, Kelly, Ginny, Alyssa, and Leslie. Premier Bus Lines have a provided drivers who knows the routes, are polite and friendly. I will continue to travel exclusively with Kelly and Terrapin Tours, because of her attention to detail, friendliness and helpfulness. Thank you Terrapin Tours for providing me with the best kind of travel.

We have done two signature tours to Newfoundland this year and then the Canadian Maritime Provinces last year with Terrapin. Kelly puts her heart into her business and it is so evident, We are not fans of bus tours but have changed our minds when it comes to Terrapin Tours. She does it right. The hotels and meals are better than a you already tour. There are always great surprises along the way with so many great memories. She tries to make the days a little shorter and sweeter than other companies which I appreciate! We plan on many more tours with Terrapin.

I recently returned from Terrapin Tour’s Newfoundland trip, visiting the central and eastern regions. If I were to use just one word to describe the trip, it would have to be ‘spectacular’. Newfoundland offers so many wonderful experiences—beautiful undisturbed scenery; lakes and streams around every corner; mountains, even with a couple ski areas; charming fishing and coastal villages loaded with history; wildlife from puffins to moose to whales to bald eagles, and everything in between; unbelievable icebergs; a capital city worth exploring; magnificent provincial and national parks; and the nicest, sweetest people found anywhere on the planet. The tour was well organized for us to experience it all, and Kelly Cooke, owner of Terrapin and our guide, always prepared us well for what was ahead. Along with that great organization and attention to detail, Kelly has a great sense of spontaneity which sometimes led us to something unexpected and wonderful—like a closer look at an iceberg from shore or a museum we hadn’t planned to visit. Kelly, Lesley as co-guide, and Robb, bus driver, made a wonderful team to lead us. Newfoundland is not just around the corner, but the bus travel was comfortable, and the experience worth every minute of travel time.

Happened across Terrapin Tours while looking for a specific trip to Ottawa. They were offering a day trip to Boston from Concord, N.H. to see Les Miserables. They were well thought of based on comments on the internet. We thought the price was reasonable and decided to try them.
Transportation was a comfortable Premier bus for the 75 minutes ride. The trip included lunch at Maggianos Little Italy Restaurant which was excellent and of course great seats at the Boston Opera House for the performance. Everything was on time and flawless. Talking with other travelers during lunch it was easy to discern that Terrapin was well liked as many folks had taken several trips with them. The bus driver did an excellent job navigating the streets of Boston. Kelly, the Tour Director and Owner of Terrapin was very pleasant and did a great job. Thank you Terrapin
