The following are testimonials from our Tour Clients.

"Lord Nelson Hotel was great, and perfectly located.  We really enjoyed seeing Maud Lewis' tiny house at the Art Gallery. The next day, having lunch at The Red Shoe Pub in Mabou, the "Maudie" actor Ethan Hawke came in to eat with his family!  We were able to speak with him for a bit.
Favourite restaurants:  Bicycle Thief and Press Gang (we had "The Drill") in Halifax; Red Shoe Pub (we ate there twice); Windows on the Water in Montague; Georgetown Historic Inn; Piatto (great pizza) and The Merchantman Pub in Charlottetown; Main Street Restaurant and Bakery in Ingonish.
Cabot golf courses were amazing, I got my first-ever birdie on Cabot Links.  The PEI courses were lovely, too.
Donelda's Puffin Boat Tour was great.
Glenora Inn was lovely, we enjoyed the distillery tour. My only complaint would be that our room was in the brand-new log cabin which is quite a distance from the Inn, so we had to get in the car all the time.
There was some confusion at the Oak Island Resort, the dinner package we had (4 course meal with bottle of wine) puzzled the dining room manager, she claimed they didn't offer that, but I had the invoice which mentioned it so she honoured it. The food there was somewhat disappointing.  
We really enjoyed Charlottetown, did the double decker city tour as well as the Queens Square Walking Tour. In the evening, we went to Atlantic Blue, Tara MacLean's concert at the Guild Theatre, very good.
Lunenburg was beautiful. Visited the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic and did a horse-drawn buggy tour.
Mahone Bay was super-crowded, so we didn't stay long.
Peggy's Cove is a must-see but as you warned, so crowded. We did that on our last day, driving the coastal route to the airport. We escaped Peggy's Cove and ate lunch further north. We enjoyed the drive.
It was a very relaxing vacation, great food. I loved the ceilidhs in the restaurants, particularly The Red Shoe Pub.  
The Hertz rental car was a Chrysler Pacifica, very roomy and a pleasure to drive."
Many thanks for putting together a fine vacation, Lisa and Don.

"Hello and thank you for checking back with us! We loved Nova Scotia! We were very pleased with your suggestion to do Halifax and Cape Breton. We loved the Marriott in Halifax. The room we were assigned at first overlooked the garage so we asked for one with a view, and we were able to get one for an additional $20 per night. It was much, much better. The breakfasts were great, and we ate dinner there once which was fine. Access to the parking garage from the hotel was excellent. We went to Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, and the Fisherman's Village near Dartmouth. The Distillery was satisfactory but not particularly to our liking because of its remoteness, but we understand that hotel options in the Cape are limited. Being so far on the western side of the Cape, it was a long trek to get anywhere. We did the Cabot Trail which was beautiful and we found a nice restaurant on the water for lunch. We also went to the Highland Village which we loved. We would have liked to see more but anything else was too far to drive to. Our room at the lodge was a little too rustic for us (no closet, shower very small and was difficult to start, no phone to the desk) and we had to drive to the main building to get sodas, ice, water or anything else we needed. On the positive side, the TV and the heat/AC and internet were very good. Breakfast was very good, dinner in the pub not great, and we didn't try the dining room. Thank you for all your assistance, and we used your pamphlet to guide us which was very helpful. We hope to get back someday and do the south and north shores, and PEI. Everyone in your office was very helpful and we appreciate that. In fact, all Canadians we met were very friendly and courteous. We felt like we were in the USA." Sincerely,Ken and Pam
