Beyond the expected and wonderful diversity of geology and geography in the region, we found the history, culture, and industry very captivating. We added a generous layer of new knowledge and deep curiosity to learn more about this area and what has happened there over the recent centuries. It was mind-expanding and very satisfying. Oh, yes...and beautiful. We met so many lovely people everywhere we went. Portland is such a happening place. Canada is so solid on its pegs and so friendly.


Great program! Considering all of the remote places we saw bus travel was the only way to get there. Initially, I thought it might be too much bus time, but if you want to see this great collection of sights it is the only way.


The 15 day tour of Maine and the Canadian Maritimes was full of great towns, history, great guides and docents and lovely hotels. I experienced and saw so much along with many delicious lobsters. The tour guide and driver for the entire trip was excellent. Each town or city was beautiful along with the scenery. Bay of Fundy was amazing along with many other wonders that I was totally unaware of. It also fulfilled my wish to visit Acadia national parl. Unknowns such as Peggy’s cove, the harbor front of Halifax and look cal music wonderful.


The trip of Maine and the Maritimes is a wonderful trip which includes the history and culture of the Acadian's and people of the area. This trip is a very worth the cost and time designated on this trip!!


This was a wonderful trip! I had never visited the Canadian Maritimes before. The scenery is spectacular! Starting out in Bar Harbor would be a great idea, since Acadia National Park is a gem and there is so much to see there.


The amount of learning was incredible, and it was done in comfortable increments. The Road Scholar experience is probably not right for everyone, but it hits the target for those that want to learn about the places they visit.


a good programme, well worth the money.


This was my first experience with Road Scholar, and it surpassed my expectations!


Our tour group were mainly retired couples, a few were traveling alone. Everyone made a strong effort to be on time for departures. I was very comfortable with the tour guide and the bus driver, who helped everyone get on and off the bus. And luggage was always delivered to our room in timely manner.


If you have an opportunity to travel with guide Linda Mancini and driver Joe Blair, the combination is thoroughly entertaining, well organized, and safe.


If you wish to learn about Canada and its Maritime Provinces, this trip is for you. Learn about the people who settled this area--their strengths, their heartbreak and struggles, and their grit. See the unparalleled beauty of the east coast and study the lobster fishermen of Maine. You will even learn the proper way to de-shell a lobster yourself. Taste delightful Maine blueberries and experience firsthand why they are considered to be the best in the country.


We loved the Canadian Maritimes trip--great teamwork with leader Linda Mancini and coach driver Joe Blair!
