Suggest an arrival dinner which would promote comraderie amongst the travelers. Stop at Acadian Maple shop was a pleasant surprise; the owner who spoke to us was very knowledgeable and funny--I learned a lot! Tour guide in PEI was fantastic. Anne of Green Gables farmhouse visit was excellent. The day we went to Hopewell Rocks was a long day and lunch wasn't available until around 2 pm; I suggest lunch, which we picked up at a market and at outside at Hopewell Rocks, should have occurred before the tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging -- excellent. Two of the hotels did not have dining facilities (except for breakfast); eating options were nearby but it was a walk to them which if people have problems walking especially on gravel or up hills it will be a problem. Itinerary was changed so that we visited the Alexander Graham Bell museum NOT on the last day as posted. This was too long a stop for the information in the museum and the tour guide did not tour us but spoke for about 5 minutes and then we were on our own. Cosmos tour director was fantastic--organized, answered questions, addressed traverlers concerns, highly knowledgeable.

All was wonderful and enjoyable tour; the panorama and tour guide amazing. It will would have been very helpful if we'll have on the bus bottles of water! Also a basic breakfast, which we had on four days of our tour, is helpful.

Great trip--great tour director-and bus driver

Our agent was extremely helpful in planning and in follow up. The trip was terrific and we had a wonderful time.
