On September 15 we had a lovely day trip to Prince Edward County.
We tasted wine while enjoying the sunshine in good company of other BOOC members. Cathy is a great hostess and a lot of fun. Jake an excellent coach driver. We had a good lunch at the Waring House overlooking the flower garden. We learned a lot about wine and how to appreciate it!
On our way home we received a lunch 🍱 to celebrate BOOC’s 25 year !
I look forward to more tours with Cathy!

Weather was perfect with the sun shinning. Cathy and Jacob (bus driver) were professional, and on a schedule. Cathy very knowledgeable of the different vineries & kept us occupied with wine quizzes during the drive. Each site was ready and waiting for us. Best of all the Wine was delicious!!

My recent wine tour to Prince Edward County with Cathy and CanXplore was absolutely delightful. Being a small group made it such an incredibly positive experience. The planning that Cathy put into this tour set a relaxing pace that enabled us to keep busy experiencing a good cross section that the Picton area offered and yet we weren't rushed. I highly recommend Cathy and CanXplore for your touring enjoyment.

This coach tour brings Newfoundland alive. From west to east: Western Brook Pond, "Anchors Away" entertainment, to Gander- feels great to be associated with these people, to the eastern tip of Canada, and boat touring seeing icebergs, puffins and whales. Get screeched in to become an Honorary Newfoundlander. This tour brings it all together with smiles, tears and pride to have been part of NFLD for a short while!

This trip to Newfoundland was beyond amazing in so many ways.
Cathy created a diverse, interesting, and creative itinerary, encompassing the many aspects of Newfoundland. The geography of the area was experienced by our tours of the Tablelands, i.e. the earth's mantle, a boat tour through the amazing fiords, Bonne Bay which showed us the other side of Gros Morne, all expertly explained by very knowledgeable guides. A bonus on our boat trips was being entertained Newfoundland style on our ride back to the docks.
We were fortunate in seeing icebergs, whales, and puffins on our other boat trips.
Newfoundland history was presented with tours in Trinity, Bonavista, where we saw a replica of Giovanni Caboto's ship, Signal Hill, and more.
And the fun stuff!!! Wine and beer tastings, Our own kitchen party at one of the hotels, Anchors Away Show, and of course getting Screeched!!
Cathy's attention to detail was exceptional, making sure everyone's needs were met. Garfield, our bus driver, was a delight, going above and beyond.
I highly recommend CanXplore,

What a fantastic 10 days in NFLD with a great group of people! The entire trip was very well planned out. Every day was packed with great sites, excellent food & lots of activities. Cathy did a fantastic job of keeping us well informed and entertained (especially on the bus). Our bus driver (Garfield) being a Newfoundlander, shared many stories from his past & present. He made sure I had my fill of bananas🙂 I would recommend CanXplore for future trips.
