Tour Itinerary

Countries Visited

Canada

Cities Visited

Baddeck , Charlottetown , Halifax , Saint John

DAY 1, Saturday - Depart for Canada
Arrive in Saint John and transfer to your hotel. This coastal port city on the Bay of Fundy has a rich and gritty history of trade and industry yet at its center lies an up and coming trendy downtown filled with breweries, galleries and 19th century architecture
Overnight: Saint John

DAY 2, Sunday - Bay of Fundy, Prince Edward Island
Morning departure from Saint John to the magnificent Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, located along the craggy coast of the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides. Time and tides have carved from the cliffs and coves distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. During periods of low tide, you can walk along the beach and explore several coves filled with these "flowerpot rocks." Miraculously, 160 billion tons of water flow in and out of the Bay of Fundy twice a day - enough to fill the entire Grand Canyon! At its peak, the Fundy tides can reach as high as a 5-story building. Many of the formations have nicknames inspired by their appearance - look for Lover's Arch, Dinosaur Rock, Mother-in-law, and ET, just to name a few. After spending time here, you'll have a deeper appreciation of the fragile complexity of the ecosystem and the simple beauty of this land and seascape. After lunch on your own, continue to scenic Prince Edward Island with its jagged red cliffs, peaceful sandy beaches, fresh seafood, and rolling green hills. This evening, enjoy a Welcome Drink during an orientation meeting with your Tour Manager and fellow travelers, followed by a Welcome Dinner to celebrate your arrival to Canada
Overnight: Charlottetown
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

DAY 3, Monday - Charlottetown, Anne of Green Gables Museum
This morning visit the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company, purveyors of fine preserves, teas, and teaware. Walk in the Garden of Hope and learn about the owner's commitment to the community. Then, drive to the north coast of the Island to visit the Anne of Green Gables Museum. When the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908, most people could only dream of visiting its magical setting. Today, millions of the book's fans have made the trip to Prince Edward Island to discover the land that captivated Anne in Lucy Maud Montgomery's stories. For readers who cannot get enough of their favorite red-headed girl, or the woman who created her, there are Anne-related attractions all over the island. The Campbell home, that Montgomery called the "wonder castle of my childhood", was built in 1872 and still belongs to the Campbell family. Here, the author was inspired to write many novels, and it is the setting for Anne's Lake of Shining Waters. Meet with relatives of the author, visit the house, learn about potato planting and digging and enjoy the peacefulness of the place. Continue to the resort village of Cavendish with its red beaches and scenic dune shores. In the afternoon, take an orientation tour of Charlottetown. Tonight, be sure to try the fabulous local seafood at one of Charlottetown's top restaurants
Overnight: Charlottetown
Meals: Breakfast

DAY 4, Tuesday - Charlottetown, Cape Breton Island
Early departure from Charlottetown crossing the Northumberland Strait in the southern part of the Gulf of St. Lawrence to Nova Scotia. Continue via the Canso Causeway from Mainland Nova Scotia to the beautiful island of Cape Breton, also known as the 'Celtic Heart' of Nova Scotia. On to the charming village of Baddeck, located along the shores of the Bras d'Or Lake. After lunch on your own, visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum & National Historic Site. Tour a unique exhibit complex where model replicas, photo displays, and films describe the fascinating life and work of Bell, such as his invention of the telephone along with many others. Spend the evening at leisure
Overnight: Baddeck
Meals: Breakfast

DAY 5, Wednesday - Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island
Today, discover the magnificent scenery and rich history of Cape Breton's world-famous Cabot Trail that winds through stunning landscapes along the Margaree River and through the spectacular rugged highlands - see some of the last remaining protected wilderness in Nova Scotia. The trail was named after Italian explorer John Cabot sailing on a mission for King Henry VII of England and also commemorates the meeting of Cabot and the Mi'kmaq people, the original inhabitants of Cape Breton Island, at Aspy Bay over 500 years ago. The Cabot Trail, completed in 1932, joined previously isolated fishing villages and today connects eight major communities ranging from the Acadian Region to Irish and Scottish settlements. Stop for a picnic lunch in the beautiful natural surroundings after visiting the west coast of Cape Breton Island and the Acadian Village of Cheticamp. Here, visit a craft shop featuring locally made rugs and stop at the local Catholic church, l'Église Saint-Pierre, an imposing and impressive monument. With its stunning architecture, frescoes and stained glass windows, it is considered one of the most beautiful churches in the Maritime Provinces. Return to Baddeck in the late afternoon. Enjoy dinner together tonight at the hotel
Overnight: Baddeck
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 6, Thursday - Travel to Halifax
This morning, depart Baddeck for Halifax. En route stop for lunch in the log restaurant of Sugar Moon Farm, a family-owned 200 acre maple syrup farm. After lunch, see how they make their delicious maple syrup on a guided tour before continuing on to coastal Halifax. Take a tour of Halifax that begins along the city's historic waterfront. This city combines the international essence of a major port city and a naval base, with the culture and heritage of one of Canada's most historic communities. See the Old Town Clock, St. Paul's Church, City Hall, Government House, the Titanic Memorial and the site of the Halifax explosion. Stop at the lovely Victorian Halifax Public Gardens with its opulent floral displays, and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, a key naval station built in 1828. The balance of the day is at leisure
Overnight: Halifax
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

DAY 7, Friday - Peggy's Cove, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
This morning, travel to picturesque Peggy's Cove, a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margarets Bay. Here, view the iconic Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, one of Canada's most photographed lighthouses. Afterward, return to Halifax to visit the Maritime Museum where Nova Scotia's rich maritime heritage is remembered and celebrated. Learn about the stories, events, and people that have come to define Nova Scotia and its relationship with the sea. The permanent Titanic exhibit at the museum relates the tale of this fated ship's creation and demise, highlighting the key role Halifax played in the disaster. Exhibits also include life aboard the Titanic - sit in a reproduction of a rare Titanic deck chair and imagine what it would have been like to relax aboard the deck of the most luxurious vessel in its time. Tonight, enjoy a lovely Farewell Dinner on the last night in Eastern Canada with your newfound friends

    Overall, the trip was exceptional. The tour guide Riccardo was outstanding...very friendly, caring and knowledgeable about the areas visiting. The accommodations in Bari and Napoli were disappointing. In Bari, the room at Grande Albergo delle Nazario was extremely small which made it difficult to manage suitcases for 2 people. In Napoli, the room at Hotel Royal Continental certainly needed updating. The overall appearance of the room looked worn and a little shabby. However, the condition of these 2 rooms did not affect the great time we had. Will definitely travel with Gate 1 again.

    Awesome experience... knowledgeable and helpful tour guide (Hend), as well as all other employees.

    As always, everything went very smoothly.

    This trip was fantastic. It was packed with lots of activities and places to see. Unfortunately, weather plays a big role in what you see and don't see. We weren't able to visit Robben Island due to choppy water and couldn't see much of Victoria Falls due to rain/fog. But I'm not complaining, that's just how things go. Other than that, the itinerary was very fast paced and we got to see a lot, which was desired. The tour was very organized and our group leader, Ahmet, was very knowledgable of the places we visited. I would recommend the game drive in Botswana over the game drive in South Africa. The food and drink was quite good from the included meals. Ahmet did his best to accomodate everyone. I'd recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see as much as possible in such a short time frame. The schedule is strict but well worth the sights.

    Wonderful experience, with well informed tour managers. Everything went according to plan, no big surprises or changes on this trip. Good job.

    My group and I had a wonderful time visiting Iceland, none of us wanted to leave. The hotel, although basic, was clean and very comfortable. The sights and excursions were breathtaking. Tour guides were pleasant and knowledgeable.

    Great trip, loved the hotels and the service provided..

    Prompt, courteous, and professional service at a fair cost.

    We had a wonderful trip and we especially appreciated our tour guide in Vietnam, Tom. We're now looking into booking another trip with Gate1

    Gate 1 is really good at what it does.. Highly recommend.

    The trip and the experience exceeded our expectations. Both Affordable Tours and Gate 1 were outstanding.

    Gate 1 did a wonderful job of planning all the details so we could enjoy our experience. Well worth the money.
