Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?
Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?
We spent most of our time on the bus. It was very tiring. I looked forward to this trip for years and wanted my wife to really enjoy it. Both of us were very disappointed. The breakfast were terrible, the accommodations were average, and some people on the tour were inconsiderate. It was hard enough to see from the bus but people still pulled their shades down to make it harder. There were few "Wow" experiences. We couldn't wait to get home. We switched our flight to a non-stop, costing us over $1000. I planned on doing the foliage trip next year. My wife wants nothing to do with another guided bus tour. I'm never so negative but we were very disappointed considering the price of the tour and flight.
Good trip, a lot of bus riding on this one - many miles to cover
Bus not luxury bus. Would have preferred a non smoking tour. Too long a time on bus. More time in some places. Tour exhausting Peter, tour director was fabulous. Bus driver John was great too.
Globus Maritimes Adventure is a great way to see the most desirable locations in this region in the least amount of time. From the coastal towns to the US and Canada National Parks, we definitely had a chance to see how people live and work in the Maritimes. Great scenery, friendly people, and lots of opportunity to enjoy the local featured meal of lobster. Our Tour Director was top notch and added greatly to the value of the experience.
Another great experience with Globus. Director and bus driver were wonderful.
We've now taken 22 Globus tours, and all have been delightful experiences. We\'ve never been disappointed in even the smallest way with all tours. Tour Directors have consistently delivered high-quality presentations during the tour and have always addressed any concerns in a professional and timely manner, no matter how minor. Coach drivers are, similarly, professional in all respects, especially in their safe driving habits and concern for passenger safety. They work with the Tour Director and hotel personnel to ensure baggage handling is up to the standard we've come to expect from Globus. Globus is a 1st class tour operator, and I've recommended their tours to friends, family, and anyone who's even casually interested. And I can do so with confidence.
The tour was everything we hoped it would be. Sights were grand, many were just like the catalog described. Also, we had a couple of extras that were not listed in the itinerary that were awesome. We saw up close and personal many more lighthouses than expected. The accommodations were mostly excellent (there were a couple of one-nighters that weren't).
Because it was late in the season the harbor sailboat cruise was not available in Halifax, and Sherbrooke Village was closed. As it turned out, it rained those days so it would not have been good for outside activities anyway and we found other things to do. Our tour guide was very good and everything went very smoothly.
The Globus Maritimes Adventure tour was excellent. We really saw the 3 provinces and all interesting sites. Beautiful views of coves and little fishing villages. I learned a lot.
The Globus tour had two changes from what was initially offered. In Boston our hotel was changed to the Sheraton Boston. This seemed comparable to what was initially offered. In St. Andrews, NB, our hotel was changed because the Algonquin was still undergoing renovations. We liked the St. Andrews Inn & Suites because of the location and the room was satisfactory. We had to go to another hotel for our meals but Globus offered us a ride to that location via the bus or we could walk. The two Optional items were not available because of the time of the year (being Fall and not summer). The dinner cruise on the paddlewheel boat in Halifax could have experienced fog at this time of the year and so Globus decided not to offer this. The Anne of Green Gables musical was still playing in Charlottetown but not on the nights we were there, again, due to the time of the year. Globus bought our lunch three additional times to compensate us for these changes. We were highly satisfied with this!
The Globus Canadian Maritimes tour was excellent. The tour followed the itineray exactly, and the tour was most enjoyable. The agent at Affordable Tours was an excellent agent with which to work, and she is an asset to your company.
