About
The best part of this tour is the down-home hospitality Sam tries to deliver with every ride. There is no real set schedule, so we have a bit more flexibility in how we do things. Sam will help you from the time you first write to the time she hugs you goodbye at the last stop and beyond if you're traveling to anywhere else that she is familiar with. Get to know other travelers and share once in a lifetime experiences along the way.

Halifax in general was awesome little getaway trip
The tour with Alternative routes was just great. In crazy rainy day we had some much fun and great memories with Sam. Definitely would recommend this tour. Go no matter what weather just have some extra clothes to change if it rains like is no tomorrow. Enjoy

Hopped off and hopped on again in Lunenburg
Sep. 2021 • Solo
A great way to see the more well-known places in the area, as well as the less famous but nonetheless lovely places. Sam will take you to hidden gems and entertain you with her interesting stories throughout the whole trip.

I hopped off in Lunenburg and stayed for 2 nights before I hopped on again to finish the tour with her... I think this is what sets her tour off from the others, being able to stay longer in a place along the route.

Great tour, highly recommended!
Aug. 2021
I truly loved the experience! Sam was right on time and picked us up right in front of our hotel. Despite the rainy weather on the day of our tour, Sam just knew where to take us and turned that into a fantastic fun day! She was very lively and knowledgeable and I learned so much about Nova Scotia! We ended the day with a wine tasting and went back with amazing stories and beautiful memories! I also really enjoyed interacting with the three new people in the group. Also, would like to mention that everyone in the group was super respectful and wore masks while inside the van during the tour. I was stress-free and made some of the best memories on this trip! Whether you’re traveling solo or with family, it’s a great tour to do!

Amazing tour not to be missed!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Sam is an amazing tour guide! She picked us up directly from our BNB and filled the day with great sights and information! She also managed to fit in some hidden gems that were off the beaten path. She also shaped some of the elements of the day based on the weather, so not to worry if it’s not the best weather day, she’ll make the best of it. Would go again in a heartbeat!

Best part of my vacation
Aug. 2021
This was my favourite part of my vacation in Nova Scotia. Sam was friendly, knowledgeable, flexible and adaptable. She's spontaneous and willing to modify the tour to fit the people on it and what they would like to do.

Any time I will be back in Nova Scotia, I will not hesitate to book with her again. And with that spontaneity, I am sure that the next time (and the time after that) will be different experiences and I will never get bored.

Plus she introduced me to beach peas. Give peas a chance lol.

Amazing tour
Sam’ tour was the best part of my trip. She’s very knowledgeable about the province, friendly, nice and really funny. She’s absolutely a wonderful person, had very interesting stories to share, took us through scenic routes and with enough time to explore each location.

This is a very scenic route we do a few times a year. We never get tired of the fishing villages on the way and the farms in the valley.

If you only have one day, this is the trip for you
Sep. 2019
We had two days in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the end of a holiday - one day to explore the city and on the other we wanted to see something of Nova Scotia outside Halifax. We chose this trip with Alternative Routes as the most comprehensive we could find, and because it was with just a small group of 7 people. We booked online from the UK, a very simple process with prompt contact from Sam, the delightful owner-driver, and we were not disappointed. She picked us up promptly at the hotel and took us first to the must-see tourist locations of Peggy's Cove and Luneneburg, and that's where most of the tours from Halifax end. But Sam took us on to the other side of the peninsula where, amongst other things, we discovered the wonderful white wine of Nova Scotia and encountered the amazing sight of thousands of sandpipers resting on the rocks during their migration. Throughout the trip, Sam was a delightful host and guide who obviously took great pleasure in introducing people to her native land; she knew what was going on in the area and conducted the trip flexibly to take advantage of it. It was a long day - something over 9 hours - and I nearly deducted one star because it was fairly cramped in the vehicle, but decided that would be churlish because it was a super day. So if you only have one day to get a taste of Nova Scotia, this is the trip for you.
