You’ll also see the sights in Halifax before moving on to Moncton, New Brunswick.

Then, taking the 8-mile long Confederation Bridge, enjoy views of the Northumberland Strait, and arrive at Prince Edward Island, welcomed over a lobster dinner. The provincial capital of Charlottetown on this island envelops you with coastal beauty. Prince Edward Island, setting for the popular Anne of Green Gables novel, paints a picture you’ll never forget.

Great trip, only issue was one of the hotels was in need of some upgrading (poor air conditioning, slow elevators, rude banquet staff). Overall, it was a great experience, very knowledgeable guide and great driver. Seemed a little rushed a few times, just wish that time would have been allotted for Religious Observances.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip....thought it was a wonderful way to see this beautiful scenic part of Canada! The tour guide and bus driver as well as fellow passengers made the tour one that I will always remember.
