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.

Mahone Bay in general is a must visit if you are in Nova Scotia. It's an adorable little town, with a constant stream of activities - my parents and brothers all live here (I live in California). The museum has local history, and shows you about the families that formed it (many of the names which still live there) and other cute artifacts. Definitely go in, it doesn't take long and it helps to keep places like this alive and part of the community.

We were lucky to be taken round by Anne, an artist and local historian, who told us about many aspects of this historic area. Do go, it is free entry and well worth the time we had there.

We were interested in the history of Mahone Bay because it’s such a charming little town so we went into the museum. The young man who gave us the history was informative and knowledgeable and obviously was interested in and enjoyed the subject. He answered all of our questions and I felt that I really understood how the town came to be. There are very few actual “relics” from the history but our guide made it worth the time. I would recommend it to anyone interested in how Mahone Bay was founded.

I visited this museum in early July. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. I particularly enjoyed the oral history video collection and the exhibit regarding the Three Churches. It was all fantastic though. I love the building it’s in too.
