Ryan was perfect! We had such a great day with him. We loved that he was so passionate and knowledgeable about his hometown. We were almost ready to move there after hearing his love for Halifax! We asked for specifics to our day and everything was covered. Even when we expressed a desire to have some fresh fish for lunch and not at a sit-down restaurant, he found a perfect side of the road spot to eat that was delish! We had physical limitations for some of our group and he adjusted everything so all could participate. He shared a wealth of information with us about Halifax and it was interesting to listen to. He even answered our barrage of questions! His ride was comfortable and we appreciated that he had a microphone so we could hear him perfectly (a few of us have hearing challenges). One of the most memorable experiences in our day was a lovely hike to some beautiful scenery and him playing his guitar and singing local folk songs. He's incredibly talented and meant to be a tour guide. The whole day and experience is a memory engrained in our hearts forever! Truly would use him again in a heartbeat!

I had a great time at the day tour to Cape Split. Ryan was an excellent tour guide and had so much knowledge about the area and Nova Scotia and was enthusiastic to share his knowledge and travel stories with us :) it is always great to see the passion someone has for the job. I highly recommend Great Earth Expeditions for any tour you have planned! I heard they are going to expand and have a great future ahead!
Thanks again Ryan for the amazing tour!!

Ryan was an amazing and personable guide, who was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the Bay of Fundy! The hike and view from Cape Split was breathtaking, with a very enjoyable lunch provided by Ryan. Easily the most enjoyable part of my trip to Halifax. Would absolutely recommend, and I cannot wait to return to take another Great EARTH Expedition in the future.

Every time I visit Halifax I book a tour with GREAT Earth. Their guides never disappoint and always provide an enjoyable experience. Having done the Bay of Fundy, Wentworth Valley, and Peggy's Cove tours, I have to say this is the most challenging of the hikes. But I had the greatest time. It was a hotter than usual day on July 5 in Nova Scotia. We hiked a trail at Taylor's Head Provincial Park through the woods and along the shore. So many beautiful views. It was a great day. Many thanks to our guide, who i'm ashamed to admit i forget his name. I believe it was George. Apologies if i have it wrong. I should have written this sooner. If you're visiting Halifax, you can't go wrong booking one of GREAT Earth's tours.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review even if months later. George was the guide and happy to hear you enjoyed the tour and even happier to know you returned to tour with us again. It's a great compliment when folks tour with us again and again. See you again and might I suggest Cape Breton next time around. Safe Travels

Kevin was knowledgeable and likeable. The structure of the day was excellent, and we particularly enjoyed the walk on the rocky barrens. A most enjoyable day.

Today's tour was perfection. Our hike and guide could not have been better! We learned about the geology and history of the country, plus general topics about Canada. The perfect weather didn't hurt!

I recommend this tour to everyone who'd like to spend four days full of adventures, outdoor activities, good food, culture, unforgettable moments and fun!
There was nothing to complain about the whole four days! I've had an amazing time! The tourguide did an amazing job and asked about/involved our needs and suggestions! I felt very comfortable and save.
I can't even decide for a Highlight., cause there were so many of them: whale watching, kayaking, hiking, dinner at the beach, sunsets etc.

Awsume! GREAT EARTH worked with us to create a memorable trip on our 1 day that our crusie was in Halifax. Kevin was our guide and took us on a beautiful hike along the shoreline. The hike was not difficult but it did go over rocky terrian. No need for hiking boots good stready shoes were just fine. We also stopped in Peggy's Cove which is quaint but overloved. We had a picnic there and the food was great.

We loved our expierence and thank you for working with us. I would recommend this trip and this company to everybody.

This was an intimate tour with Kevin leading me and one other couple in a minivan. Such a smaller scale than I expected but welcomed so we could have real conversations during travel and over the prepared lunch at a picnic table on Peggy's Cove. I enjoyed the rock hike a great deal. We were trying to stay ahead of some stormy weather (tropical storm) bearing down, and Kevin kept the pace quick so we got the full experience but didn't have to run back to the van should the weather turn bad. He played local folk classics (Stan Rogers) as music for the ride. Knows the area, the geography, history, and nature, which I really got a lot out of. Felt rugged; needed hiking poles to scale the boulders. It was terrific!
