Day One: It's always fun to get acquainted as we make a summer journey through the Pennsylvania mountains with our Gad-About Tours Team. Overnight in Danbury, Connecticut.
Day Two: On to Portland, Maine to board the hi-speed Cat Ferry over to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. With a crossing time of just 5.5 hours, it's about half the time it would take to drive! Plenty of onboard amenities will make this a very special journey - sit back and enjoy incredible ocean views, food, and live entertainment. You will be experiencing the Maritimes the way they're meant to be. Upon disembarkation, we'll overnight in Yarmouth. (B)
Day Three: Today we embark on our Nova Scotia adventure as we make our way first to Grand Pre National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site takes you back in time to experience the event which took thousands of Acadians from their homes in this Bay of Fundy region in the southern Minas Basin. Continuing on our scenic journey, we arrive in the capital city of Halifax where you'll fall in love with this area, guaranteed. Staying two nights at the Delta Barrington in the heart of city center, you'll have easy access to Casino Nova Scotia and the exciting waterfront area where good times await at the many historic pubs filled with loud east coast music and a fun-loving maritime atmosphere. (B)
Day Four: We'll tour the city with a professional guide to see all the highlights of Halifax, one of the most captivating cities in North America. Some much-desired free time to explore will follow and then ... "Ahoy, Matey's" as we board the adventure-filled amphibious "Harbor Hopper", the most popular tour in Atlantic Canada! Later, bask in the true BEAUTY as we drive the scenic trail to picturesque "Peggy's Cove" (of postcard fame) with a special dinner at famous Sou' Wester right on the Cove. (D)
Day Five: The renowned Citadel Fortress is our first stop today for an interesting tour and fantastic view of the city. We depart for Cape Brenton, Nova Scotia, and a two-night stay in quaint Baddeck at the Inverary Resort Inn. You'll enjoy your lovely 11-acre resort right on the shores of the glorious Bras d'Or Lakes. On the way into town, we'll make a stop at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Then a choice of menu dinner is included tonight. A magnificently beautiful day in every way! (D)
Day Six: We begin our wonder Cabot Trail Adventure this morning! A stop at the Gaelic College of Celtic Arts, and then we'll be on the famous "Trail"! Some of the most spectacular scenery in North America will be ours to enjoy today! A lunch feast is ours at the famous Keltic Lodge perched high on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There will be magnificent pictures stops all along the way and dinner awaits back at the resort. (B ,L, D)
Day Seven & Eight: Rise and shine as we depart for our next adventure, Prince Edward Island! After a short ferry ride and scenic drive, we arrive in Charlottetown, the heart of the Island - our folks love their time here! In fact, per your request, we're staying an extra day again this year! We included a special bus tour of this capitol city for a wonderful overview, a delicious lobster or steak dinner right on the waterfront, a visit to the famous Anne of Green Gables home, and beautiful Cavendish Beach. We also include some free time back in Charlottetown so you can enjoy this gorgeous place any way you wish! (1-B, 1-D)

Boasting over 7 miles it spans Abegweit Passage of Northumberland Strait, linking PEI with mainland New Brunswick, Canada - the views are spectacular! Later, we may be able to stop at the Reversing Falls, altho' our timing cannot be guaranteed to be there when they are actually reversing. Overnight at a lovely hotel in St. John, New Brunswick.
Day Ten: We're off to "St. Andrews by the Sea" for a look at the impressive historical Algonquin Hotel. Overlooking the Passamaquoddy Bay sits this Tudor-style "Castle by the Sea" - enjoy a photo opportunity here and then some free time in the quaint downtown area. Next, we'll cross into Maine as some pretty country roads lead us to our home for tonight in South Portland. Dinner is included at a local favorite, the Muddy Rudder. (B,D)

(It does require a doctor’s written note or copy of death notice.) On longer tours, we have a special insurance plan available if you are interested, and it will be sent to you with your confirmation. We encourage you to take advantage of these protection plans.

All of our tours are by late-model, deluxe wide-body motorcoach. They are equipped with air-conditioning, reclining seats, public address system, VCR, and emergency restrooms. Our intent is for all overnight tours to be professionally escorted for your convenience. Upon occasion, in order to avoid canceling a trip with a low passenger count, our driver may serve both positions of driver and escort, and all are professionally trained to do so.

Trip insurance is available, and will be sent to you upon making your reservation for your individual consideration.
Your lodging is included on all overnight tours. All hotels are AAA rated. We never use second-rate hotels, restaurants, or activities on any tour, to the best of our ability to make that determination. Payment of telephone calls, room service, and other incidentals at places of lodging are the responsibility of the customer.
One suitcase per person is included in the price of your tour. You are also permitted a carry-on, which is your responsibility. Additional luggage may be transported at the cost of $5.00 per bag, per day. It is wise to travel light.

All taxes and gratuities for included meals and activities are included, unless otherwise mentioned by the Escort.

We request that you express this on an individual basis, and let the quality of service received be your guide.
On all overnight tours, we use a daily seat rotation. The first day of a trip, we allow you to choose your seat when you get on, and rotate from there. We feel this is fair to all involved. If the coach is not full, a less formal rotation may be used at escort’s discretion.
We make regular stops for restrooms and for the convenience of smokers; however, we have a NO SMOKING policy aboard all coaches. This policy also applies to e-cigarettes.
