Excellent overview of the Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia history, culture, geography and food. Well prepared and informative presentations. Excellent group leader..approachable and knowledgeable. We had a medical emergency that our group leader handled very well. Would recommend to anyone with a curiosity about this far corner of Canada.

This was a bucket list trip for me and my bucket was filled with delight. We drove all the way from New Mexico and it was worth every mile. Hint: If you go in the summer for one of your free nights in Baddeck, have your guide make reservations for you at St. Michael's Parrish Hall Ceilidh. Cape Breton is known for its fiddlers. This event fills up and you won't get in without a reservation.

Loved seeing 3 different landscapes from lovely farms in PEI to hillier evergreen country in Nova Scotia capped with breathtaking views up high on the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, all while glimpsing the water all around in various forms. The seafood was icing on the cake - I had some every day! Our leader, Arleigh, was full of knowledge and fun. There were flowers everywhere as everyone took pride in their homes or hometowns. The organic farm visit, lighthouses and music were special highlights. A nod to our group who were brilliant, as the British say, and to the guest speakers who made the area and history come alive. What a great trip! Holly
