Fascinating and beautiful area. Host and instructor are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic communicators. Accommodations and meals were the best of the 5 trips I have taken with Road Scholar. Two days required physical stamina but experienced hikers do not need poles. I had two problems with Road Scholar Travel, one with pricing, the other with reservations. Neither was resolved by Road Scholar Travel. In future I will book travel on my own.


I loved this program! As someone who is working on recovering from an injury, I was somewhat nervous about whether I could actually “keep the pace.” I was very pleased with how they provided options for the hikes that allowed me to “keep my own pace” without slowing the group down. It allowed me to enjoy the daily activities fully! And when I chose to “skip” a day of hiking, I had a lovely day exploring the village and beach on my own and was even provided a lunch by our hosts. The whole experience was really perfect!


The Bay of Fundy is a must see! There is no other place like it that I've seen so far and I loved it.Road Scholar did a wonderful job with this program,starting with the team leader,instructors and the hosts at the Tidal Watch Inn.


wonderful trip. Kathy and all were perfect hosts and guides.


We had a superb time learning about the Bay of Fundy and surrounding areas from some wonderful instructors with vast knowledge of the ecology, geology, ship building and fishing culture and architecture of St. Martins, St. John as well as the extreme tides of the Bay of Fundy. Highly recommend this program!


I really enjoyed this trip. We went on many very diverse hikes within just a short distance from our base and we learned a great deal about the Bay of Fundy's unique geology, flora, and fauna. Kathy and Rudy, our hosts, were welcoming and knowledgeable, and they went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time. I highly recommend this tour for folks who like to explore an area by hiking.


I have a new appreciation for the beauty and history of New Brunswick, which seems to be an underappreciated Canadian Maritime province. The trails we hiked were well maintained and took us through a variety of natural habitats. I really enjoyed staying in the quiet village of St. Martins and in an Inn that was located by the Bay and had excellent food and competent and friendly staff.


This was a fun and fascinating adventure. The group size was just right. Although it is listed as a physically active trip, there were always options for who were not feeling up to the challenge. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys coastal history, geology, and/or the flora and fauna of the tidal area.


This was our first Road Scholar trip, and it probably spoiled us! The locale, the inn, the food, the leaders were all superb. The location in tiny St Martins was beautiful (steps from the beach and a view of the ever-changing Bay of Fundy). Our hosts were extremely accommodating in helping with transportation and dietary restrictions. We learned a lot on this trip and will definitely do a RS trip again.


The best RS I have been on. The B&B and staff made this a lovely experience.


Your hiking boots will enjoy every minute of this Fundy experience (as will you)! Exploring the Fundy Sea Caves was a highlight, as well as hikes on the Fundy Trail. Expertly led, this active trip leaves you wanting more. Oh, and the food is delicious!


If you want to learn all about the Bay of Fundy with the daily tides of 35 to 55 feet and the history around the Bay, this is the program for you. Some of the walks might be a bit strenuous but well worth while.


I have enjoyed all four of my Road Scholar trips and plan to go on many more. Prior to the end of this program which I loved, we were already thinking about what we where we would be going next.


This program had spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy and the surrounding area. The mix of physical activity, lectures was just right. The welcoming nature of our hosts, their helpers, and our lecturers as well as their expertise made this a very pleasurable experience.


Fascinating program. The hosts are warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The geology, history and culture of the area are both not well known and unique, which makes a very engaging educational experience, in addition to the gorgeous outdoors, historic and comfortable inn and excellent food. Variations of this program are offered, a less active one focusing more on history and culture and a more active with a hiking emphasis. The St. Martins area is putting a great deal of thought and effort into developing itself as a destination and Road Scholar programs are contributing to this development. An interesting sidelight was the greater than usual number of engineers in our group.


A nicely paced program that allows time for learning, interacting with locals and other participants, and free time. Enthusiastic hosts and entertaining speakers and performers. An educational experience throughout.


The program exceeded my expectations. We were blessed with beautiful weather and I loved the beautiful rocks of many colors on the beach and the rock formations of the caves. The tides were amazing, the leaders and entertainment were perfect for the time we had. I enjoyed seeing what it would be like to live in a small village because I live in a large city.
