"Our director was an absolute joy. She was very well informed about the history and culture of the areas we visited, super organized and obviously loved what she was doing. Well chosen examples, I learned lots about Acadian history and enjoyed the Cape Breton Tour, spectacular scenery. We loved sailing, so much fun!"

Ms. M.D., Columbia, Missouri

"I traveled single along with my parents, sister and her husband. All five of us enjoyed our tour. Beautiful countryside, clean comfortable nice hotels. My favorite was the sailing. Thank you kindly!"

Ms. D.J., Huron, Ohio

"I was very impressed with Caravan and hope to travel with you again. I will recommend you to my friends. Thanks for a wonderful week in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island."

Ms. A.H., Shelby, Ohio

"If you love a quiet peaceful place with lots of beautiful lakes, then Nova Scotia is for you. The air is unbelievably fresh, crisp in the mornings and evenings, and then warm during the day. The seafood is bountiful and they love tourists. Many interesting historical places to learn more about the people and culture of Nova Scotia."

Mr. & Mrs. W.G., Edison, New Jersey

"You won't go wrong with Caravan. We will definitely use them again. We saw everything that was a 'must see' in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. We would have taken two or three weeks to see the same on our own. Caravan provides the best value and quality for your money for this tour. It's funny, I saw other tour motor coaches from other agencies at all the stops we went. I noticed their prices they advertised were twice Caravan's prices! The Marriott Harbourfront Hotel had a great room, super great dining, and helpful staff. There were great views of the waterfront, especially at breakfast where the buffet was outstanding! The sightseeing and activities were well organized."

Mr. & Mrs. E.D., Trappe, Maryland

"There were several people on our tour who had traveled with Caravan and sought Caravan for their Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island vacation. I fully understand why and will certainly travel with Caravan again."

Mr. & Mrs. K.D., Albuquerque, New Mexico

"We have just returned from our third Caravan tour and enjoyed it very much. The scenery was so beautiful and different in each province as we covered Cape Breton Island, Prince Edward Island, into New Brunswick, returning to Nova Scotia and Halifax. The number of meals provided was most ample. It was good to have some meals on our own. The hotels were just excellent choices. Our guide and driver both proved to be courteous, informative and helpful men whose attitude provided a positive feeling the entire tour. All three tours that we have had with Caravan were filled with wonderful memories and experiences. Best wishes for continued standards of excellence with present and future tours."

Mr. & Mrs. J.K., Lafayette, Louisiana

"We checked out other tours to the Maritimes and found Caravan not only less in money, but much more in content, and thoroughly enjoyable. Your hotels were excellent and the meals delicious, not one with a problem. Your sightseeing and activities were very well orchestrated, interesting and informative. Your rest and photo stops were a good choice for photo stops and exceptionally thoughtful for bathroom stops. Your tour director was informed regarding areas, caring, concerned, available, and a pleasant person. Thanks!"

Mrs. & Mrs. F.C., Valrico, Florida

"Our tour director and driver made a great team. We chose this tour for our honeymoon because we wanted something scenic, relaxing and stress free. Your people helped make it everything we expected and more. We will definitely be going on tours with Caravan in the future."

Mr. & Mrs. M.B., Rhinedorf, New York

"This tour packed a lot into a short time but in a way that gave one a lot to see and a lot to learn which to me is ideal. It made me want to return to spend more time in several of the locations I saw. I enjoyed the locations for sightseeing very much. I appreciated seeing more of the Maritimes than I would have on my own. I was pleasantly surprised by the Fortress of Louisbourg since I did not know that history. Both our director and driver did their utmost to make this trip enjoyable for everyone."

Mrs. R.M., Ithaca, New York

"This was our third Caravan tour and we will definitely do more. Always interesting. Ideal selections to provide optimum information about Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and excellent scenic views. Each hotel was first rate, quiet, comfortable and decorated and furnished in an attractive way that set a pleasant and restful mood."

Mr. & Mrs. J.K., Omaha, Nebraska

"Everything about this tour was wonderful. The people on the tour were fun to get to know. We saw so much and did so much. No way a person learns all this information if you went on your own. Ours was a superb director, his living in the area makes for an outstanding experience. We have wonderful memories of this tour, thank you."

Mr. & Mrs. F.B., Kewaskum, Wisconsin

"This was my first guided tour and my first Caravan tour. I went alone and made many new friends. Our group seemed like family by the time we were finished. The sites were outstanding. My favorite was probably the the sailboat trip in Baddeck. There was a great variety; each a new adventure! Also loved Anne of Green Gables, and sightseeing in Halifax. Loved the fort, and Acadian music! The Marriott Halifax was excellent. I loved everything about the tour and will definitely plan another Caravan tour."

Ms. M.D., Two Rivers, Wisconsin

"This was my sixth Caravan trip and it was again an excellent experience. The itinerary was well-planned, the food and hotels were great and you attract a very friendly clientele. Your directors and drivers are the best. I enjoyed everything, it was a great trip. Thank you, next trip to Guatemala in January."

Ms. J.C., Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

"I’m almost eighty with a bad knee, and I had not planned to do anymore big trips. My friends encouraged me to come along and I’m so happy I did. This was my first Caravan tour. Way too much beautiful scenery to remember and process. Very nice stops at various museums that were not always expected. We got to mingle and get to know each other, and our director was wonderful. I would recommend Caravan to anyone wanting to see the places you offer."

Ms. J.S., Greendale, Wisconsin

"Again, I was so impressed on a Caravan Tour. Love traveling with your company. This was my fifth trip and I have one planned later this fall. We had such an informative guide and I learned so much about the Acadian, Cabot Trail, French, Irish, Scottish in that region. All the guides were so proud of this region. Bay of Fundy, National Park in Cabot Trail, our director went out of his way to help all of us, kudos to him."

Ms. N.H., Port Clinton, Ohio

"It was good to be in Canada again and experience its charm and friendly people. Glad I took this trip. Loved the sailboat excursion and also enjoyed Halifax, the Harbour and the Maritime Museum. Visiting the Titanic cemetery was very moving. Our director took such good care of us, terrific."

Mr. & Mrs. J.L., Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

"This was only our second trip Caravan and it certainly will not be our last. As with our wonderful director in Guatemala, our Nova Scotia director, besides being calm, well-organized and patient, she was also flexible, witty and knowledgeable. She literally thought of everything the entire time we were together. Excellent, varied and unique sites with adequate time, considering all the places we visited!!"

Mr. & Mrs. J.P., Williston, Florida

"This was my first but won’t be my last Caravan excursion. It’s apparent that your itineraries are well thought out and revamped as needed. I came home raving about my Caravan adventure to anyone who would listen. The Bay of Fundy was as superb place to start the adventure. No place in the world like it. Our guide at Prince Edward Island lived there, and we got a personal perspective on this beautiful island. Cape Breton contained a highlight of an evening, loved the show there. Our director gave us a real feel for the Maritimes. His love for the area was very apparent. He did a great job of making us feel welcome and special guests of Caravan. I will be on another trip next year with Caravan with a few of my friends."

Ms. C.W., Houston, Texas

"Our trip to Nova Scotia was the trip of a lifetime and will provide me with wonderful memories forever. This was a fantastic tour. We saw so much of Nova Scotia, it was beautiful and our director’s knowledge and understanding of the communities added so much enjoyment to the trip. Very well pleased with sightseeing and activities. So much history, so little time! Thank you so much!"

Mr. & Mrs. P.C., Reserve, Louisiana

"A great way to see that area of Canada. Wonderful sightseeing opportunities throughout the tour and we really enjoyed them. Something out of the ordinary. A stop every couple hours was just right for our needs and we were given the many photo opportunities that we were hoping for. Couldn’t ask for a better tour director. A wonderful trip with a historian. Very pleasant and clean rooms and well kept grounds in the local hotels. Could not ask for a better location in Halifax than the Marriott. Based on this experience, we will plan another trip or two with Caravan."

Mr. R.R., Loveland, Colorado

"This was our first full-service, guided tour/trip. Superb! Always felt we were in good hands. We will not hesitate to book a future tour with Caravan. Wonderful, beautiful activities, such a variety from the natural to museums, plus some free time. Exceptional director! We were awed by his knowledge of history, development, and nature of the island and area. His narratives were engrossing, his humor delightful. Clean and comfortable hotels, and the staff was welcoming, friendly and seemed glad to see us, accommodating our needs."

Mrs. B.R., Loveland, Colorado

"I am a repeat traveler with Caravan. All the hotels were very nice, and Northwinds on Prince Edward Island was particularly great. I enjoyed the choices of sites we visited. The church on PEI was lovely, as was the AGB Museum, Halifax walking tour and Maritime Museum. I enjoyed our director’s style of tour very much. I look forward to enjoying more tours with you."

Ms. P.C., Tucson, Arizona

"Excellent variety of the best hotels in each location. Excellent meals and plenty of food! Saw many interesting places and enjoyed a variety of activities, including exercise, along the way. We were very fortunate to have our director, who stayed very focused on our tour to be certain we all could benefit from it. I would always consider Caravan Tours because the tour guides are professional, knowledgeable with history and humor to keep everyone happy!"

Ms. E.L., Ontario, New York

"The most outstanding feature of Nova Scotia is the unspoiled beauty of the countryside and coastlines and harbors, big and small. I liked Prince Edward Island, Ann of Green Gables and Bay of Fundy visit, sites and parks. Ours was the most capable, excellent, reliable, and safe driver. Much appreciated by all."

Ms. M.C., Fresno, California

"What a memorable trip! I loved everything we saw and did. It was my first travel opportunity in this part of Canada, and I couldn’t have been happier with this itinerary. A nice variety of places to stay with welcoming owners/managers, and I appreciated that most were two-night stays. Gisele’s Country Inn in Baddeck and the Marriott in Halifax at the end of the trip were especially nice. We were also lucky with the weather. Our director did a fine job in every respect. He was so on top of things and his experience as a tour director was clearly visible. I hope to travel with Caravan again sometime. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!"

Ms. J.I., Buffalo, Minnesota

"Very beautiful trip. The views were amazing. Very professional driver, loves what she does, proud of what she does. Our director was amazing. He knew everything about the area toured. Well-organized, well-informed, well-spoken, a true gentleman. Very happy. Top notch!"

Mr. A.C., Montreal, Quebec

"This was the third time for us with Caravan. Wow. Never knew the Canadian Maritimes was such a heavenly place. Happy with the stops chosen. Enjoyed every minute, and our director never missed anything for us. She was excellent. She shared her knowledge and was kind and approachable at all times. Looking forward to the next Caravan tour!"

Mrs. B.S., Concord, Ontario

"As independent travellers from Australia, we soon realized that public transport in Nova Scotia was quite limited, so we selected Caravan Tours on the basis of the itinerary, two-night stays, and value for the money. We certainly saw and experienced more than we could have done on our own, so we are highly appreciative of the opportunity to travel with this excellent company. We enjoyed all the sightseeing and activities, none of which were beyond our capabilities. The pace was never rushed. Our director took an individual interest in each and every member of the touring party, and his organizational skills were brilliant."

Mr. & Mrs. J.S., Port Lonsdale, Victoria

"My spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We have gone on other guided coach tours before, but Caravan is the only company we’ve used more than once. I loved this tour. I also loved the Costa Rica trip. Caravan is a fabulous company, keep up the good work. The Baddeck gathering was beautiful. Our director, the BEST EVER. Well-timed stops were greatly appreciated each day. We may sign on for the Rockies next year!"

Ms. A.J., Lawrence, Kansas

"Thoroughly enjoyed the tour! Clean, spacious hotels with good amenities and helpful, polite and efficient staff. Excellent activities, specifically Peggy’s Cove, Cabot Trail, Fundy Bay and Bell Museum. Good value for the money. Would not hesitate to recommend Caravan to others."

Mr. & Mrs. L.G., Thornhill, Ontario

"This was my first visit out east. Thoroughly enjoyable. Locations chosen were well thought out. Lots of opportunities for rest, bathroom breaks and photos. Our director was amazing; patient, caring, and very helpful. Accommodations were excellent. It’s great value for the money."

Mr. & Mrs. L.W., Pickering, Ontario

"Caravan is great! This was my second tour, having done the Grand Canyon before. It was awesome to walk on the ocean floor at the Bay of Fundy. I know everything is timed to fit but maybe Cheticamp could be expedited. Marriott was superb! Our director was the best ever. I had been concerned with understanding a dialect, but he was articulate and a walking encyclopedia! Couldn’t have been better."

Ms. D.P., Riverside, Rhode Island

"This tour was well-organized and well-managed by the director and driver. All hotels were well-situated, comfortable and welcoming. Sightseeing choices were interesting and revealed the spirit and beauty of the East Coast. Especially enjoyed the Bell Museum and Peggy’s Cove. Excellent driver, instilled total confidence regarding safety. All our guides were informative and pleasant."

Ms. M.K., Mississauga, Ontario

"The scenery alone would have been enough: Flowerpot Rocks, Cabot Trail and Peggy’s Cove. I enjoyed the North Winds, nice walking trail, and Gisele’s Inn had gorgeous grounds and a nice restaurant. The location and setting of the Marriott Harbourfront was ideal. Our director had a great memory for names, dates and events. His knowledge of Halifax was a big advantage. He was very organized and managed our group well."

Mrs. K.P., Lake Jackson, Texas

"Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and will encourage friends to consider it. Varied, educational, well-spaced. Appreciated stops at quality gift shops. Spectacular scenery at Cape Breton and Cabot Trail. Excellent accommodation. Very enjoyable dining experiences. Well prepared local guides shared their knowledge and anecdotes well; they were friendly, humorous, and excellent additions to the tour."

Ms. B.R., Ottawa, Ontario

"I was on this tour several years ago and it seemed like I saw more this time. I love Caravan and have always had an excellent experience. You obviously do it all right! Already thinking about my next trip!"

Mrs. M.B., Jamestown, North Carolina

"I had a great time on my trip, and I’m glad I went. Sightseeing was filled with amazing views, and the weather was great. All the hotels were very nice and easy to find your way around."

Ms. M.Q., Altamont, Illinois

"This was our second tour with Caravan, the first to Costa Rica. We were very pleased with how well the tour was organized and conducted. Plenty of opportunities to experience local culture, taste local food, and see historical sights. Our director was the best in the business when it comes to showcasing Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. We will definitely consider your other tours to California and New England."

Mr. & Mrs. M.S., Oakville, Ontario

"This was a tour of beautiful rural Canada. This is my third Caravan tour and all have been great, well planned and very reasonably priced. The Bell Museum and Maritime Museum were educational and interesting. Peggy’s Cove was foggy but beautiful. Enjoyed the chance to visit the Fortress of Louisbourg."

Mr. C.S., Saint James, Missouri

"We can’t say enough good things about our experience on this trip. We had never toured like this before. Overall, this was one of the best vacation tours to date. The sightseeing was outstanding. Especially enjoyed the views at the giant tides of Fundy. Our highlight of the tour was our stop at Cheticamp, the fishing boats. What a treat. Rest stops were right on time and the views were amazing."

Mr. F.G. & Ms. J.O., Kissimmee, Florida

"I enjoyed the trip. It was well thought out, and I appreciated that Caravan did as much as they did to support the locals who depend so much on tourism. I particularly liked the pace at each stop. I loved the visits at the heritage center and Acadian settlement, and of course, beautiful forests, lakes, and harbors. Well done."

Ms. M.D., Cincinnati, Ohio

"Wonderful! My trip with Caravan to Nova Scotia and P.E.I. was one of the best trips I have ever taken. It was a wonderful experience, relaxing, accommodating and fun. Lots of opportunities to see scenery, to visit places of interest, and to experience each locality’s culture. Very informative and fun! Thank you Caravan!"

Ms. V.J., Waynesboro, Pennsylvania

"This was my first coach tour and first with Caravan, can’t wait to book my next. Wonderful experience. Great mix of sightseeing and local activities. My favorite was the trip to Cheticamp. I loved the choice of hotels. Wonderful customer service, quaint but updated large rooms with very comfortable beds. Our director was absolutely wonderful, she made the trip."

Mrs. J.T., Statesville, North Carolina

"This was my first tour by motorcoach. I found it to be a very positive experience and would likely do one again. The selection of activities and sightseeing was very good. We were able to see many tourist sights. We also had opportunities to see things not included in the tour. The hotels improved as we went from city to city."

Ms. M.C., Davis, California

"All great. The best was standing on the ocean floor at the Bay of Fundy. Peggy’s Cove was very special. No complaints about any activity. And the little extras like arranging transportation to and from the airport and Marriott was very much appreciated. Our director was spectacular in every way. His knowledge of the areas as well as the history of the area made it very educational."

Mrs. K.L., Chesterfield, Missouri

"I enjoyed all of the sightseeing and activities that we experienced. The Bay of Fundy should be a Caravan tour all of its own to fully experience the importance and magnificence of it. Cheticamp was an amazing experience! Please add more Caravan tours!!!"

Ms. L.B., Washingtonville, New York

"This was our first Caravan tour; we had reservations about doing a guided coach trip. But we were very happy with everything and would do it again. Beautiful country, enjoyed all activities. Never felt like anything was a waste of time."

Mr. B.W., Saint Louis, Missouri

"We considered doing this trip independently. I’m so glad we took the tour instead. Great value as far as the cost, the information learned as we visited each area, and the positive feeling of being taken care of. Thank you. I’ve been on several tours offered by other companies. Yours is one of the best. Excellent variety; no chance to be bored."

Ms. L.C., Red Deer, Alberta

"Ours was an extraordinary tour director and local resident with more knowledge than most guides about this particular tour region. He was a veritable fountain of information on specifics and his suggested areas to visit on our own were spot on. We had lots of time for sightseeing, boat rides, hiking in the Canadian National Forest, and just walking around cities like Halifax. There were an incredible amount of photo stops because of all the wonderful outdoor scenery. Public gardens, waterfronts, Maritime Museum, ferry rides, and more. Everyone had lots of time for photos and resting and so forth."

Mr. I.K., North Easton, Massachusetts

"I definitely recommend the Maritimes tour. I will have fond memories of the beautiful countryside and warm people. There was so much to see and do, never a dull moment!! There was a variety of regional foods and plenty of stops along the way to take beautiful pictures. Our director was accommodating and thoughtful. Thank you for making this tour so great!"

Mrs. B.E., Duncanville, Texas

"Wonderful trip, our first with Caravan. Would use them again. Sorry the trip had to end. We chose this tour for sightseeing, and loved the scenery, absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful, green and clean! The other sights/museums that we saw were absolutely magnificent. The meals were excellent throughout the trip, and the seafood was superb wherever we had it."

Mr. & Mrs. S.D., Meriden, Connecticut

"I definitely recommend this specific tour to my friends. Fantastic sights, outstanding information given along the way. Great excursions and local guides with unbelievable knowledge of area, people, and folklore. Loved her minute by minute attention to all the details. Creative activities while driving to the next destinations. I am very interested in booking another Caravan trip."

Mr. P.E., Duncanville, Texas

"It was all wonderful, which is why we booked another trip as soon as we arrived home. We learned so much, but I have come to expect that from Caravan. You guys are wonderful. All the hotels were fine and served our needs."

Mrs. R.S., Flossmoor, Illinois

"My first time with Caravan - not my last. Everything was delivered as promised, no glitches. A very relaxing, no-effort, informative way to travel and a good value."

Mr. R.N., Glendale, Arizona

"We made memories that will be everlasting. Everything was fantastic and well organized. Our guide and driver were very knowledgeable. Everywhere we went, staff members were very polite. Thank you."

Mr. R.L., Canton, Ohio

"So much to see, lots of history, beautiful scenery. Peggy’s Cove was special because of the rock formations. Plentiful stops, very considerate of the travelers. Keep doing what you’re doing: keeping the customer’s travel experience something they’ll talk about forever. The tour guides are exceptional and, even though you don’t have too much to do with the weather, it was delightfully beautiful."

Mr. J.K., Orlando, Florida

"A well-organized itinerary with a superior tour guide/director. He enhanced the trip and made it a memorable ten days in the Maritimes of Canada. Excellent all around; well thought out and organized well."

Ms. C.B., Boynton Beach, Florida

"This Caravan tour was organized with good sightseeing, good food and good activities. The coach boarding at each sight was done efficiently. Just enough time at each sight. Fun and educational. Happy that we visited the Bell Museum. This was our first Caravan tour! I would consider another in the future."

Mr. & Mrs. L.M., Longmont, Colorado

"We really enjoyed our tour, our first time with Caravan. The people on the coach were fantastic - we got along well and had lots of fun. Forty-seven people from all over the United States. Our sightseeing was very interesting and informative. Enjoyed them. Very well organized for people of all abilities. Beautiful country!"

Ms. T.C., Beverly Hills, Florida

"This was my first tour coach trip and my first time traveling alone. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We saw everything that was promised and more. All of the activities were well planned, and we were always given the option to join in or not. The hotels were great, clean and comfortable, all that we needed. I enjoyed every part of this trip and will use your company again."

Ms. C.S., Windsor, Ontario

"I will tell others of this great trip! This was my 2nd trip with your company. It was great and I loved everything. I would have loved more time at Green Gables. Peggy’s Cove and Flowerpot Rocks were amazing! Our director was so patient, kind and helpful. Go Caravan!!!"

Mrs. S.H., Columbus, Ohio

"Very impressed with how Caravan handled the booking, providing information, and the itinerary for the trip. Very positive! The sightseeing kept us busy with great sites, and plenty of time given to take in the views and activities of the sites. Plenty of spectacular rest and photo stops. Wonderful director, very knowledgeable and humorous, considerate and helpful, always looking after the group."

Ms. M.G., Roanoke, Virginia

"Amazing! I never imagined I would do and see so much. So glad my husband and I chose Caravan versus a cruise. I cannot say enough good things about the way Caravan handled everything, not to mention the wonderful new friends we made. Well thought out to provide local influence, a bonus. Greatly impressed with more than I expected for a coach tour. I loved each hotel we stayed at, really great. Well done!"

Mr. & Mrs. L.G., Bedford, Texas

"This is our 3rd Caravan Tour! Each has exceeded our expectations. This was well planned. Felt we had the opportunity to soak up the culture in the areas we visited. We continue to share our positive travel experiences with our friends and family. We appreciate the organization of all the details that go into planning these tours."

Mrs. L.F., Roanoke, Virginia

"I have never visited Nova Scotia nor did I know about the history. The tour provided me with the history of the area and a new interest in the populations of Canada, especially Nova Scotia. It was a wonderful experience. I especially liked the Bay of Fundy, Anne of Green Gables house, and the Fortress of Louisbourg."

Ms. E.M., Bronx, New York

"This was my third Caravan tour, and I hope to take more. Can’t think of anything to complain about! Loved the boat cruise, enjoyed the museum. Plenty of rest and photo stops. Very satisfactory."

Ms. J.S., Kingston, Tennessee

"As always, Caravan is an incredible value and gives an awesome tour. This is my fifth and I recommend you to everyone I know. Beyond excellent."

Ms. A.C., Farmville, Virginia

"I would travel with Caravan again because we got a lot for our money. I enjoyed learning about Canadian history. All the hotels were nice and so were the employees. My favorite was the Marriott. My director was a walking book of knowledge."

Ms. S.D., Jamestown, New York

"This was my very first group tour and coach trip, and I am pleasantly surprised. What a great way to see beautiful Nova Scotia. Something for everyone! Culture, crafts, history, architecture, industry, agriculture, famous people, nature, geology, fortresses, military, disasters, weather, languages, indigenous peoples, connections with global perspectives, tools, collectibles, wildlife, flora… all we saw which taught us new things. Eye-opening!!! All the hotels were pleasant and well situated with super friendly staff. I never felt I was on the coach too long. Whenever my knees were wanting to unbend, we’d arrive at a scenic view or major stop. Cliff views of seas, a bog walk, lunch towns, sites and sights, all well timed and worthwhile."

Ms. T.W., Port Washington, Wisconsin

"Wonderful full trip! Enlightening and informative. Your reputation is well-deserved. We received an excellent overview of Nova Scotia, its people, history, industries, seaside, mountains; a wonderful learning experience. Timely stops at beautiful, inspiring locations. Passenger safety and well-being are maintained at all times."

Ms. K.R., Charlotte, North Carolina

"Excellent! I have already told friends about Caravan. This tour met and went above my expectations. With our director as our guide making sure we understood what we were seeing, it made the trip extra special. All the hotels were very good and in great locations for exploring. Wonderful!"

Mrs. G.V., Martinsville, Virginia

"Interesting, educational. This was my first Caravan tour. I’m sure it won’t be the last. Good value and variety. Great staff. Abundant, timely stops."

Ms. J.F., Hendersonville, Tennessee

"Superb. As an eldery person, with the assistance of our director, driver and other guides, I was able to participate in all activities with pleasure. Many enjoyable rest stops. Excellent meals, lots of variety, local cuisine and again, friendly staff. Thank you."

Ms. I.A., Powell River, British, Columbia

"We loved Costa Rica, and I think we may have enjoyed this trip even more! Our director, driver, and forty-some others could not have been better companions. Loved the schooner, and Bay of Fundy was excellent, parks were outstanding, and the distillery was great too. Great planning and stopping. Thanks so much!"

Mrs. N.G., Marlboro, New Jersey

"One of our very best tours, as we learned a great deal and met such nice people. The number of places visited was incredibly illuminating. Much more than expected. I liked the hike in the Maritimes Park, rug hooking, Green Gables, and fishing mileage. Great and timely, we appreciated the frequent stops. Our director was wonderful, our driver was very warm and polite. I think they made the trip. Delightful!"

Mrs. L.L., Glen Arm, Maryland

"Well worth any money spent! This was my first Caravan tour and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I saw so much and learned lots about the country of Canada that I never knew or would have never taken the time to do on my own. Canadians are very friendly and proud of their heritage. The hotel accommodations were good with a couple of the Halifax ones being very nice. I appreciated the fact that we stayed by harbours which kept the ambiance of the maritimes fishing life."

Ms. R.S., Bismarck, North Dakota

"This was our first Caravan tour and I enjoyed all of the tour. Sounds like we were spoiled as everyone was on time and it went without any troubles. We were able to see a lot with the time we had with plenty of stops. I would have missed a lot if it was a self-guided tour. I give our director and driver a lot of credit for keeping everyone on track!"

Mr. D.L., Bismarck, North Dakota

"This was a most enjoyable trip, mainly because our tour guide, driver and fellow passengers became more like friends. I just wish that Caravan had more of a variety of trips to offer. I did the New England Fall Foliage Tour a few years ago, and liked that one as well, but I give this one an unqualified “A”. I thought the trip offered something of interest everyday, and I appreciated that the activity level was moderate. And what can I say, your director is a treasure, and she is a great asset to Caravan Tours. Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of this group."

Ms. J.F., Summerville, South Carolina

"We have been on four Caravan tours and this one was the most relaxing. Really enjoyed the scenery and service. Very smooth going tour with no worries. Our director and driver were fabulous. Loved the fact that we didn’t go for more than two hours without a pitstop. Lots of info and history along with the needed downtime."

Mrs. R.S., Mercer, North Dakota

"I enjoyed this trip very much. It was my second tour with Caravan and I will travel with this company again. I learned a lot about the culture of the maritimes and their history, a must-see part of Canada. The meals were excellent and we had fresh seafood at all times. Your directors and drivers are a valuable asset to your company. Keep it up."

Ms. C.L., Ormond Beach, Florida

"Thank you for offering affordable tours to interesting places! This was my second Caravan tour and I loved it as much as my trip with you to Costa Rica. There were so many wonderful places to visit and our tour director was very thorough with his explanations of all our stops. The activities varied and were interesting. We saw all the sights on our itineraries and enjoyed them all. I plan to take the Grand Canyon in the next year or two and possibly the Canadian Rockies trip after that one."

Ms. S.M., Durham, North Carolina

"This is my first tour with Caravan and I was extremely pleased with the trip. There is a lot of value in the tour, from the excellent hotels, daily water, excellent excursions, excellent tour director, to the driver and local guides. The days were packed with activities of various subjects, but there was some appreciated free time as well. The pacing was nice and you felt busy, but it wasn’t overwhelming. Our director was great at making local recommendations and making sure we knew where everything was."

Mrs. J.F., Longwood, Florida

"There are many reasons why we enjoy traveling with Caravan. Number one is the quality in everything you provide for less than other tours. Also the quality of the employees you have: guides, drivers, office staff. It’s no accident you are successful. You have a great team. One is always saddened by the end of a tour, it’s bittersweet. I don’t think we missed any sights in Nova Scotia. The museums were fascinating, especially the maritime in Halifax. I could go on, but I would run out of paper."

Mr. W.S., Freehold, New Jersey

"This was our second Caravan tour and we are quite impressed with the caliber of your guides and bus drivers. Sometimes it can be overwhelming with all the stops and information offered, but we always recuperate during the offered free times and are looking forward to our next tour. Enjoyed the cultural and nature-related stops too."

Ms. P.M., Freehold, New Jersey

"We have never had a bad experience with Caravan. This was our 4th trip and I would highly recommend Caravan to anyone. I even got my neighbors to go on a tour this summer and they raved about the trip. All the activities were very enjoyable, and I especially enjoyed the boat cruise and ferry ride. I was delighted with the hotels where we stayed. Thanks to our great driver!"

Mr. & Mrs. K.L., Antioch, California

"This was a great tour, very well done. Sightseeing everywhere was great and I really loved the coves and mountain cliffs on Cape Breton Island. I loved the living history and period costumes at Louisbourg. I would like to see a tour through Texas and New Mexico in the more rural areas of the states."

Ms. B.B., Salem, Oregon

"As usual, this Caravan tour was an exceptional experience. All whom we were in contact with were the most knowledgeable and accommodating. Our director performed extremely well. Knowledgeable and attended to all details."

Mr. D.W., Georgetown, Texas

"Hope to take another Caravan tour, especially with our Nova Scotia director as our guide. Couldn’t imagine any way to make it better. I loved all that I learned. We met many wonderful people from across America and Canada. Hope to tour with some of them again in the future. Ours was a master among tour directors."

Ms. L.D., Wilsonville, Oregon

"This first Caravan tour proved to me that Caravan Tours are practical and affordable. Perfect sightseeing, excursions, rest stops and activities. All events, reservations, etc. were so well orchestrated. Bonus that the handling of our luggage and delivery to the shuttles and rooms was flawless."

Mrs. D.L., Deltaville, Virginia

"A relaxing experience. Good mix of history, local present-day culture and natural beauty. The boat rides, Anne of Green Gables, Bay of Fundy, Louisbourg were highlights. Leisure days in Cheticamp and Halifax could have been enhanced with optional walks. Consistent quality and cleanliness in hotels, just right in terms of picturesque settings whenever possible. A good value to see the gems of the area so you can leave the decision-making for accommodations, meals and must-sees to knowledgeable directors."

Mrs. D.L., Cape Girardeau, Missouri

"I loved this tour. So much fun! Museums, boat rides, history, nature, entertainment, restaurants. Quite the itinerary, loved everything the tour involved. Caravan, you have hit it out of the park with this one! Wonderful. Hope to see you next year as I plan to head west. Best, most enjoyable time ever!"

Ms. C.G., Millville, New Jersey

"This was our third Caravan trip. We’ve enjoyed all of them, but this one was a most relaxing and enjoyable experience with a great director and coach driver and forty other wonderful people on tour with us. We will have lasting memories. I’ve never seen a group of strangers from day one get together so well, with friendships formed by the end."

Mrs. D.T., Washington, Illinois

"Caravan is a class act. Great job on this one! I wouldn’t change a thing. I learned a lot about the people of Nova Scotia and the people on the coach. Loved the history most of all. I feel in touch with the people and their history of survival. We had many opportunities for pictures and well-timed meals. It’s a huge plus to actually hear the locals tell their stories and sing their songs."

Mr. R.F., Lakeside, California

"I travel with four to six family members each summer and the Caravan tours don’t ever disappoint us. Enjoyable and amazing to see the gorgeous coastal side of Canada. You are very fortunate to have your director as part of your team, such an excellent representative for your company. No one left disappointed. We hated to part with her on the last day. The absolute best tour director we have had in five years and five Caravan tours."

Ms. J.B., Durham, North Carolina

"We continue to be amazed at the quality of the hotels included in the typical Caravan tour, especially for the overall tour price. The Marriott was our four-star hotel of choice but all hotels/inns were very comfortable and the staff were wonderful. We enjoyed our director so much that we will probably try to take another Caravan tour where she is the director, maybe the Canadian Rockies. You have a jewel, don’t lose her!"

Mr. B.B., Litchfield, New Hampshire

"This was my second trip with Caravan and I am looking forward to more. Both have been excellent and a great value. The natural beauty of the countryside was so varied that looking out of the window of the coach was enough to keep me happy on the longest rides. There were times when I wanted to have more time at some places, but I’m glad we had a smaller group."

Mrs. A.P., Redding, California

"This was our second Caravan tour, Yellowstone was our first, and we enjoyed the trip both times. Beautiful and varied landscapes, seascapes and coastal views. Cabot Trail was among the highlights of the trip. Overall, we had the ability to take part in most activities scheduled, despite some rainy weather. For our age and abilities, we find Caravan makes travel available to us and we are grateful you provide excellent service."

Mrs. D.S., Stuart, Florida

"This tour covered so many things in such a short time. Perfect amount of rest and stops. Never met such friendly people as the Canadians. Loved the Cabot Trail. One of the couples recommended your Canadian Rockies and Glacier Park Tour, so we will have to put it on our list."

Ms. A.G., Yorktown, Virginia

"As usual, Caravan delivers excellent value for the cost. We have done four or five (my wife did one more than me) and we keep coming back for more. We have frequently recommended Caravan to others and will continue to do so. The sightseeing was our main reason for the tour, and was wonderful and varied. Our hotels ranged from superb to better than average."

Mr. S.C., Salem, Oregon

"This trip did not disappoint. If you only ever take one trip, this should be the one. I absolutely loved it all, but just not enough time! We were a small group, the perfect size. We got to know each other well and really blended as one. Our director was great: extremely knowledgeable of the regions and he seemed to know everyone. Great sense of humor. Hotels were fine to excellent, and all staff were extremely pleasant and willing to please."

Ms. S.M., Fredericksburg, Virginia

"This was our 4th Caravan trip and once again we were not disappointed and learned about a new area. Very enjoyable trip. Wonderful things to see and do and timed well to avoid crowds. Time schedule was very good and nice to have options of taking one’s own time if you didn't want to participate. Local tour folks were great as well. Hard to pick a favorite place! The entire group was congenial and kind and pleasant. Didn’t feel rushed, well-placed with downtime as well."

Mrs. J.K., Montgomery, Texas

"I had an excellent experience on my Nova Scotia tour. I think Caravan did an excellent job, and I am looking forward to many more trips with this company. We did Costa Rica ten years ago. I just wish I could have our director and driver on future tours. Sightseeing was plentiful, excellent and very informative."

Mrs. J.R., Saint Petersburg, Florida

"This was the second tour I have been on and I did not think it could be better than the first but it was. I will recommend both tours to family and friends. Very pleased with what was offered. Well planned stops and never too far apart."

Mr. D.H., Plano, Texas

"I’m already looking forward to another Caravan tour. You do a great job. I can’t think of much to change or improve here. The tour is well balanced and paced. We just need more than 24 hours in a day. I enjoyed it all."

Ms. N.K., La Jolla, California

"This trip was wonderful. Our director and driver made everything enjoyable. Well planned trip. I took good pictures if that gives you any idea. A beautiful area for touring. I enjoyed every stop. However, if I had any ideas, it would be to stop in Cheticamp for a day and then spend more time in Banook or Halifax. We are already discussing going to Yellowstone with Caravan next year."

Mr. T.O., Northborough, Massachusetts

"We have many great memories of our time in Nova Scotia. A highlight was the Bras D’or Lake and Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. We are already looking at the brochure and planning our next trip. The value provided by Caravan Tours was amazing. Friends had recommended Caravan and they were right, Caravan is terrific. The hotels chosen for this tour were perfect."

Mrs. C.P., Heathsville, Virginia

"Thank you for a great trip overall and for providing some great memories! When I first saw the itinerary, I thought we would have a lot of free time, but we were kept busy. Plentiful rest stops, and many wonderful photos were taken by all of us."

Mrs. M.H., Melbourne, Florida

"This is our second Caravan trip. We were accompanied by friends who took two trips due to our recommendations. Your company is a better value than most. A great blend of activities! We appreciated the skillful blend of local history because we enjoy learning while travelling. So much to see and hear regarding the different places. Kudos to the local guides in addition to the knowledgeable tour director. Loved the plethora of photo stops, so essential to this beautiful location."

Mr. & Mrs. R.B., Tiffin, Ohio

"Caravan Tours is a great value and experience! Loved all of our activities and the way we were immersed in the culture and history with sightseeing and even food. The tour and tour director gave me a great appreciation for the people, culture and landscape that I did not know before. This was my first tour with you and will not be my last."

Ms. K.H., Smithmill, Pennsylvania

"I don’t think this trip could have been done any better. Our director was a jewel and so was our driver. They did everything right. And there is really no stop I would suggest giving up. I liked the stop at Bay of Fundy and sailing. I also liked the House of Green Gables, the Cultural Center, Bell Museum, etc. Marriott was a great stay at the end of our trip!"

Mr. & Mrs. B.B., Fayetteville, Pennsylvania

"Nova Scotia was our 3rd Caravan tour, we enjoyed very much. The province is beautiful and we had a great group. A terrific guide and a very good tour, excellent local restaurants, food was spectacular, a lobster and mussel paradise!"

Mr. J.D., Naples, Florida

"This was my second Caravan tour. My cousin comes from Canada and I from England. We meet up and everything is taken care of. For value, your company is outstanding. We just had another wonderful holiday with your company, in fact my best holiday ever. That’s saying something as I am in my 70s."

Ms. L.R., Woking, Surrey

"We saw and did so much in Nova Scotia, it’s hard to recall everything! Churches, fiddlers, Micmans, museums, sailing plus plenty of stops for taking in the scenery. Ours was probably the best director Caravan has. Wow, he knew Nova Scotia inside and out. I would definitely take another Caravan tour."

Mr. & Mrs. J.L., Angola, New York

"This is a fantastic tour. We had a wonderful group that became our friends. We plan to stay in touch. Our director and driver made sure we were safe, happy and engaged. I loved the activities; just enough each day to keep interest up. I loved the boat cruise, and Peggy’s Cove was outstanding."

Ms. F.C., Greer, South Carolina

"I know there are a few other bus tour companies offering a similar tour of this area, but I feel I received an exceptional value for the cost of the tour from Caravan. The timing and location of the stops were great, never felt rushed, always seemed timely. Our director deserves a lot of credit for making this trip so enjoyable."

Mr. & Mrs. E.H., Swartz Creek, Michigan

"Absolutely wonderful. Our director was fantastic, full of facts and information. Even jokes and interesting tidbits. Super patient with us. Very enjoyable, lots of breaks. Perfect amount of sightseeing,. Loved cemetery with Titanic graves, maritime museum, everything. A very good time and will recommend to everyone!"

Ms. C.G., Freeport, Maine

"What a beautiful area in Canada! We really enjoyed the trip. This was our 4th trip with Caravan. We have not been disappointed by any of them. They are all well-organized and a great value. Thank you!"

Mrs. S.F., Colfax, Wisconsin

"All excellent sights, and varied to address traveler interest, from Anne to forts, cemeteries to museums. Excellent hotel choices, even in small towns where few inns or hotels are, amazing accommodations were found, exceptional! I would travel definitely by Caravan again. This was my first trip. All travelers seemed enlightened and pleased."

Ms. N.V., Meadow Vista, California

"A nice variety of hotels and meals and service was top-notch. Our director made sure we saw as much as possible every day, many places I would have skipped even if I had been on my own, and they turned out to be some of my favorite stops. We had a very safe driver, especially on the Cabot Trail. Caravan Tours is a class operation with great tour directors and a perfect price point."

Mr. & Mrs. G.T., Bonita Springs, Florida

"This was an excellent trip. There was a lot to do but at the same time relaxing and the wonderful scenery was so uplifting. Hotels were very nice and comfortable was clean, and ours was a top of the line driver with safety, a good sense of humor and cordial with the travelers."

Mr. & Mrs. D.H., Charlestown, Rhode Island

"Cannot give enough praise for our driver and director. Beautiful scenery. The evening entertainment was wonderful. Especially liked Gisele’s Country Inn."

Mr. M.Y., Houston, Texas

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. I fell in love with the East Coast and would like to retire there some day in Prince Edward Island."

Ms. S.R., Toronto, Ontario Canada

"This was our second very enjoyable trip with Caravan Tours. The hotel in Halifax had an excellent location. The guides at the Fort and Prince Edward Island were very helpful. They added the local color and knowledge, which added to the pleasure of the visit. Looking forward to our next Caravan tour."

Mr. & Mrs. J.B., Bradenton, Florida

"I have no further comments that I would like you to share other than to go on Caravan Tours and have a great time! Caravan rocks!"

Ms. C.R., Toronto, Ontario Canada

"I really didn't think that I would enjoy this trip as much as I did. We had an exceptionally nice group and we made some good friends. My husband and I have been on a lot of tours and we were very impressed with our trip to Nova Scotia. Can't wait until our next one. I will certainly recommend Caravan to all my friends."

Mr. & Mrs. G.B., South Daytona, Florida

"The tour director was very helpful in working out a couple of situations we encountered. The Halifax guide was excellent. The Prince Edward Island guide was very good. Cape Breton guide was knowledgeable. This was our first tour. Thanks to Caravan and its staff for making it a very enjoyable experience. We recommend this tour to anyone."

Mr. & Mrs. R.D., Rochester, New York

"The sightseeing and activities were as they were described in brochures and as shown in online videos. You will enjoy a comfortable and relaxing trip through the beautiful and not crowded Canadian Maritimes."

Mr. & Mrs. E.S., Rochester, Minnesota

"It was an outstanding tour that I would recommend to anyone. The hotel in Halifax had excellent accommodations, food and service. We enjoyed the pool and associated facilities. The North Winds Hotel was clean and comfortable. Also, dinner was excellent. Everything was well planned and there was a lot of additional information provided to us for us to see and do on our own. Hotels, meals, guides and tour route were fantastic. Please pass on my commendations to all of the special guides."

Mr. & Mrs. C.L., Lompoc, California

One beautiful scene after another: mountains, seas, streams, wild flowers, birds, boats, the fort, the play, French influence. So much to cherish and remember. Never did we doubt Caravan’s driver’s ability to transport us in total safety. The hotels were very nice, clean with all the amenities. Thank you for an awesome experience. The Canadians are some of the really nice, friendly, helpful and kind people I have met."

Ms. K.S., Orlando, Florida

"We saw so many things and got a real feel of the region and I found them very interesting. Everyone was helpful, kind and genuine. This was the first time I went out of the US as an adult.

Ms. L.S., Orlando, Florida

"Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton Highlands are beautiful areas and we are glad we saw them by motor coach with Caravan rather than trying to do it on our own."

Excellent director with his ability to impart knowledge in clear and creative ways, very special. We miss him!!"

Mr. & Mrs. A.M., Hudson, North Carolina

Ms. P.S., Poca, West Virginia

"Excellent. The entire tour was very enjoyable. We thought this trip was a great bargain with all the things that were included. Good to excellent hotels, reflecting the flavor of the area we were visiting. Each place was warm and accommodating. A great variety of activities. Peggy’s Cove, Hopewell Rocks, Halifax, Bay Of Fundy were excellent as well. Meeting local people gives you a real sense of their culture. What an outstanding person our tour director was.

Mr. & Mrs. R.K., Ocala, Florida

"Great tour! We have said often since returning home, 'this is where we were last week.' It's too bad we now have to come back to reality. The value was exceptional considering everything that was included. There is no way that you will be disappointed on this tour. The tour was paced quite right. Sufficient time was given to both tour activities and free time. It was designed right for someone wanting a decent overview of the Maritime Provinces. The basis is now in place for a follow-up free-time visit."

Mr. & Mrs. P.C., Williamsport, Pennsylvania

"All hotel rooms were immaculately clean, and with friendly staff. Also, the luggage was handled very well. It was a beautifully organized tour with very knowledgeable guides who were proud of Nova Scotia and what they had to offer. Tour director and driver were both excellent!"

Ms. M.S., Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania

"Caravan Tours makes traveling fun! Nothing is left out of your experience!"

Loved the fact that you could do different activities, a good mixture of group activities but time to go on your own."

Mr. & Mrs. R.G., Lady Lake, Florida

All this being said, no matter how beautiful the scenery and all the aforementioned positives, the key factor in the success of the trip fall on the shoulders of the tour director. We were blessed to have our fearless leader. She was outstanding on every level, the absolute best."

Mr. & Mrs. S.A., Reston, Virginia

Mrs. P.R., Orange, Massachusetts
