Hi Ryan, Mark was our tour guide for Peggy's Cove tour for the HPD Divas. While Mark did an awesome job of our tour it was not what we discussed many months before the tour. I'm a fan of your tour company, 2 nd time I have book you. Mark did not know anything about taking us to the police... More

Great EARTH Expeditions went above and beyond what we expected on our excursion. They took us to some of Nova Scotia's most beautiful sites and showed us a side of our province we didn't know existed. Highly recommended!

We booked the 8 hour Down by the Bay tour over the phone with Ryan. Our guide, Maya, was very knowledgeable and informative. The minibus was fairly comfortable, once we'd mastered the logistics of getting in and out! We first stopped at Evangeline Beach shortly after low tide, where we were able to walk on the ocean floor and appreciate... More

We did the "Peggy's Cove Rock Walk" tour and loved it. Our guide Ryan was great and really makes you feel like you're on a personal tour of the area. He explained the history behind all the places visited. The coastal barrens were so beautiful, a great addition to be able to see and find out the history behind them... More

I called Ryan at Great EARTH and told him we needed a modified Bay of Fundy tour because we had no interest in touring a Winery. Ryan listened to our needs, was accommodating, and immediately put together the perfect tour of Bay of Fundy (Baxter's Harbor, Annapolis Valley, Blomidon Bay and Wolfville. Our tour guide, Maya, showed up on time,... More

We loved our "Peggy's Cove Rock Walk" with Great E.A.R.T.H Expeditions! Mia was an incredible host with a vast knowledge of the area. The hike itself was quite easy but the views were breath taking! Definitely recommend this tour. The healthy lunch was perfect. A very enjoyable morning and a highlight of our visit!

We took a day tour to the Bay of Fundy with our tour guide Mia, who was brilliant. The tour itself was one of their less strenuous but suited us just fine. To stop and look at the scenery, visit a lovely farmers market in Wolfville, have a picnic lunch, then visit a winery was an excellent day out. It... More

Our Great EARTH guide Line was stellar. My U.S. travel group (Adventures in Good Company) snagged the best ever local guide - Line. We, hiked-biked-kayaked-whale watched and even shared our tidal bore experience with Line. She was extremely knowledgeable about both travel and history. She has this really great laugh and you just know she loves her work though she... More
