We thoroughly enjoyed the Exploring Maritime Canada trip. It was filled with learning and exploration activities. Every day was special. Enjoyed the size of the group (24) and the wonderful leader, Traci. My husband went or Nova Scotia as a child and was eager to show it to me. So after 49 years of marriage, we finally had the chance to go! Thank you Road Scholar!


A comprehensive look at the history and landscape of this part of the Maritimes. A great adventure!


Fantastic experience. Beautiful countryside. Fabulous walking tours and great guides and instructors. I especially enjoyed my time on Campabello Island. Words cannot accurately describe.


Informative and enjoyable visit to maritime Canada led by an outstanding host and informed by knowledgeable experts.


I have taken several RS trips and have been completely satisfied with each one. The educational experience is unforgettable and the logistics management is so welcome and helpful.


Had a wonderful time exploring Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Maine. Scenery was fantastic, especially for someone from Arizona. Cities and sights we saw were fascinating. Gained a great appreciation for Maritime Canada, the Acadian culture, and the history of Campobello Island. I would highly recommend this program.


The trip exploring Southern Nova Scotia and the Maritimes and particularly Campobello Island for FDR fans, is very interesting and organized. It has a lot of everything like history, beautiful scenery, cultural activities (concert), outdoor adventures(whale watching), and great accommodations and food. The pace is not too hectic and filled with photo opportunities. You should enjoy it immensely!


This trip to Nova Scotia and Campobello Island was wonderful. The landscape of the area is beautiful and there is much to learn about the history of the area. The trip was exceptionally well organized and well run.

This reviewer did not give a star rating.

Good (though brief) introduction to the maritime portions of Maine and Canada. Much less "active" than the rating suggests. Campobello Island was the highlight of the program.


Fabulous trip to the Maritimes; wonderful lectures and scenery; met fun, interesting and very nice people on our trip; leader took great care of us! However, I would have appreciated more exploring and walking/hiking and less bus time.


If meeting new people, learning about the shared histories of Canada and the United States...and eating lots and lots of lobster, haddock, cod, and scallops sounds like a dream come true then this is your dream vacation. The natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy is brought to life through the history of soldiers and sailors, sea captains and whalers. The hosts at each venue were gracious and did everything possible to ensure our comfort and satisfaction.


A great program with excellent accommodations.our leader Randy was one of the best we had over many Road Scholar trips.
