Probably our most favourite thing we did over a 11 day trip through the Maritimes. Very engaging and attentive hosts. Delicious lobster. Can't recommend enough.

What a fun tour! Don't miss this! We had the best time ever! The fiddling fisherman and his wife were the nicest, informative and entertaining hosts we have ever met. We travel quite a bit and felt that this was a truly unique experience.
