      Excellent tour guide
      Our tour guide, Nav, was great! He was very patient with my elderly mother and made sure she was ok all the time!

      Outstanding!
      Harry, our guide, was phenomenal. He was knowledgeable and fun. The scenery is unmatched and we stopped regularly to view it.

      Wonderful Celtic Color Festival tour
      We went on a five-day tour during the Celtic Color Festival. They picked us up from Halifax and took care of all the arrangements, our tour guide/driver Frank is very knowledgeable, told us many interesting background stories. We had great seats for all the concerts attended, toured around in a comfortable van, the area is scenic, people warm and friendly. We had a relaxing, enjoyable time, highly recommend!

      Unforgettable experience of Cape Breton Island!
      The tour was very well organized. It was great to be in two smaller vans rather than a bus. The guides were excellent. The concerts very very well done. The meals very good. We enjoyed everything.

      Taste of Sydney Tour was outstanding!
      We thoroughly enjoyed the Taste of Sydney Tour — Frank was a superb tour guide! He was very friendly, professional, informative and helpful! Due to the excellent tour and resultant introduction to Sydney, we can’t wait to visit Nova Scotia again!

      Wonderful tour of Cabot Trail
      We recently did the Cabot trail with the driver Brian. It was excellent! He had a lot of knowledge about the area, and kept it interesting. He stopped at viewpoints, so despite being a long day of driving, we were able to get out and take photos frequently. Highly recommend this tour!

      Cabot Discovery Tours - Great Scots Tour
      We had an amazing Great Scots Tour! Jerry was our tour guide and he was knowledgeable and very accommodating. We stopped at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site and the Highland Village, with ample time to see the sights. The views on the Cabot Trail were amazing! We would highly recommend this tour.

      Great experience
      We had an outstanding tour of the Cabot Trail with Harry as our guide. His excellent knowledge and history of the area showed us that we would never of appreciated the Cabot Trail if we had driven it on our own. Kudos to Misty for accommodating us so we could participate in this adventure.

      Amazing all around!
      We booked a private excursion (6 of us) to the Cabot Trail from Sydney, where we stopped from 7-4 during our cruise. 100% satisfied! If you are considering it, stop thinking about it and book it. Amazing service while booking it: quick responses to my questions and to the point. So pleased with our driver/guide Frank: lot of very good information, great storyteller, and very flexible when it came to stops (where and how long for). It was clear that his priority was: us having the best time. Why a private tour? We saved a lots of time on stops as it was only us up/down; it was all about us - easier to please 6 than 40; and it was a full day tailored to us and our interests. As said above book this excursion with Cabot Discovery Tours ; you won’t regret it.

      Cabot Trail Van Tour
      We picked the right tour but the wrong day. We had 7 people plus Frank, our driver and tour guide. Frank was great: born and raised on Cape Breton Island, he had many tales and anecdotes, and related much history about the area. The problem is that we couldn't see much of what he told us about because of the weather- Hurricane Lee had just come through and almost the whole day was rainy and foggy. Frank said it was the worst sightseeing trip he ever conducted.

      Excellent guide, route & overall experience!
      I, my husband and another couple had the pleasure of having Harry as our guide. He was excellent—attentive to everyone’s needs, informative without overloading us with details, open to questions, warm, and he had a good sense of humour. He provided plenty of planned stops, and allowed unplanned ones for photos. We were delighted when he sat at our restaurant table for a leisurely lunch, while we admired his Toronto Maple Leafs socks! The cost for 8.5 hours was very good value for the money. We were very pleased with every aspect of our experience!

      Great tour of a stunning place
      We had a great day out with Frank. The bus was comfortable and roomy , Frank was a very good driver and host and the scenery absolutely stunning. We stopped at lots of places to take in the beauty and stretch our legs. We had 5 wonderful guests on our trip, and had a lovely time together ~ ended up dining together that night and will hopefully meet up again in the various different countries we came from. We did the whole trail and it was all lovely. The booking was easy and the tour really well organised. Highly recommend.

      Great Scot Tour- Shared Cruise Excursion
      Jerry was our guide for the day. He was on time with a comfortable passenger van. Another couple from our cruise ship and us made for a total of 4 on the tour. The excursion had lots of scenic driving, but we had time to walk at the Edison museum and the Highland Village at our own time- meeting back up at a time set by Jerry. We really enjoyed the costumed actors that were stationed around the village . We also opted to have time to walk in Baddeck instead of a sitdown lunch. Jerry is a great representative of the friendly people who live in a beautiful scenic place. Would recommend this tour company.

    We booked Cabot tours through email. Misty, the owner was amazing and very focused on customer service. She is an excellent communicator and her goal is to please her customers. She picked us up in Inverness and gave us a tour, scheduled a sail boat ride and brought us to a local brewery. She told us about the area and knew her history.

    The second day her husband, Jerry, took us on a full day trip around Cabot Trails. We stopped at many beautiful location. We had a seafood lunch at a great restaurant. Jerry was also very knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We had a wonderful day with him.

    I must say that they both did an excellent job showing us around. They really were very knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel so welcome.

    If you ever need a tour in this area, I would highly recommend them.

    It was a pleasure getting to spend time with your family. It is always easy to show people around when they have similar interests and up for anything. We are happy that you enjoyed your time in Cape Breton and we were able to share some of this time with you.

    Our group of ten had a fun day exploring Caroline's Cape Bretton. This tour was the most professional tour of all of the tours we took during our 8 days of visiting ports. They had an invoice system and replied to email prior to the day of the tour. She picked us up at the port, gave us a brochure overview of the tour on Cape Bretton and went through what our plans were for the day before we got started. We made several stops to take photos as we passed the Bras d'Or lakes on our way to the Cape Bretton Highlands National Park via the Cabot Trail. We stopped at The Dancing Goat for a bio break and more coffee. They had some great cookies here too! We spotted a noted film actor having coffee with friends. Caroline knew where all of the good stops were for picture taking. The coast near Inverness was beautiful. Caroline's knowledge of Cape Bretton and the stories she told brightened up our cloudy day. She loves this island. She took us to L'abri for lunch. Food was wonderful. She placed our lunch order before we got there, speeding up the process. We saw the same actor having lunch with friends there too. There was some road construction on our way back to town, so Caroline made the detour and found us a great stop on the Middle River as the sun peaked out. They may add it to the tour. We were back in good time to board the ship. The van was very comfortable and she had a PA system that made it easy to hear her. I highly recommend this company and Caroline!

    We enjoyed our tour immensely despite the colors we expected to see were not like we thought it would be thanks to Hurricane Dorian!! Graham shared loads of info. We would highly recommend this tour. Also the owner of this company, Misty, showed great customer service skills.

    Six of us were on a cruise together. We booked a private tour as I wanted to go to the Gaelic College on Cape Breton Island. We were picked up promptly at our cruise ship and what a day we had. There were demostrations and beatutiful music and dance performances at the college. After that we did a little shopping, saw some beautiful scenery, had a few beers at a local brewery. The day was perfect and I think we all hugged our tour guide (or wanted to). Highly recommended.
