Note: your itinerary will change depending upon the day of the week you depart. Click a day above to see what is included.

DAY 1, Tuesday - Depart for Canada
Arrive in Saint John and transfer to your hotel. This coastal port city on the Bay of Fundy has a rich and gritty history of trade and industry yet at its center lies an up and coming trendy downtown filled with breweries, galleries and 19th century architecture. Your journey will begin this evening with an orientation meeting and Welcome Drink with your Tour Manager at approximately 7 PM. We recommend that you select flights which arrive in your destination no later than 5 PM on Day 1 of the itinerary or earlier, if possible
Overnight: Saint John

DAY 2, Wednesday - Bay of Fundy, Prince Edward Island
Morning departure from Saint John to the magnificent Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, located along the craggy coast of the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides. Time and tides have carved from the cliffs and coves distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. During periods of low tide, you can walk along the beach and explore several coves filled with these "flowerpot rocks." Miraculously, 160 billion tons of water flow in and out of the Bay of Fundy twice a day - enough to fill the entire Grand Canyon! At its peak, the Fundy tides can reach as high as a 5-story building. Many of the formations have nicknames inspired by their appearance - look for Lover's Arch, Dinosaur Rock, Mother-in-law, and ET, just to name a few. After spending time here, you'll have a deeper appreciation of the fragile complexity of the ecosystem and the simple beauty of this land and seascape. After lunch on your own, continue to scenic Prince Edward Island with its jagged red cliffs, peaceful sandy beaches, fresh seafood, and rolling green hills. A Welcome Dinner with your fellow travelers celebrates your arrival in Charlottetown, the flourishing capital city of Prince Edward Island
Overnight: Charlottetown

DAY 3, Thursday - Charlottetown, Anne of Green Gables Museum
This morning visit the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company, purveyors of fine preserves, teas, and teaware. Walk in the Garden of Hope and learn about the owner's commitment to the community. Then, drive to the north coast of the Island to visit the Anne of Green Gables Museum. When the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908, most people could only dream of visiting its magical setting. Today, millions of the book's fans have made the trip to Prince Edward Island to discover the land that captivated Anne in Lucy Maud Montgomery's stories. For readers who cannot get enough of their favorite red-headed girl, or the woman who created her, there are Anne-related attractions all over the island. The Campbell home, that Montgomery called the "wonder castle of my childhood", was built in 1872 and still belongs to the Campbell family. Here, the author was inspired to write many novels, and it is the setting for Anne's Lake of Shining Waters. Meet with relatives of the author, visit the house, learn about potato planting and digging and enjoy the peacefulness of the place. Continue to the resort village of Cavendish with its red beaches and scenic dune shores. In the afternoon, take an orientation tour of Charlottetown.

On to the charming village of Baddeck, located along the shores of the Bras d'Or Lake. Lunch at a local restaurant before a visit to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum & National Historic Site. Tour a unique exhibit complex where model replicas, photo displays, and films describe the fascinating life and work of Bell, such as his invention of the telephone along with many others. Spend the evening at leisure, or, take the optional Sunset Cruise on the Bras d'Or Lake. While cruising, observe majestic Bald Eagles as they circle the boat, see Beinn Bhreagh, Alexander Graham Bell's mansion, and the stunning Baddeck shoreline.

DAY 5, Saturday - Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island
Today, discover the magnificent scenery and rich history of Cape Breton's world-famous Cabot Trail that winds through stunning landscapes along the Margaree River and through the spectacular rugged highlands - see some of the last remaining protected wilderness in Nova Scotia. The trail was named after Italian explorer John Cabot sailing on a mission for King Henry VII of England and also commemorates the meeting of Cabot and the Mi'kmaq people, the original inhabitants of Cape Breton Island, at Aspy Bay over 500 years ago. The Cabot Trail, completed in 1932, joined previously isolated fishing villages and today connects eight major communities ranging from the Acadian Region to Irish and Scottish settlements. Stop for a picnic lunch in the beautiful natural surroundings after visiting the west coast of Cape Breton Island and the Acadian Village of Cheticamp. Here, visit a craft shop featuring locally made rugs and stop at the local Catholic church, l'Église Saint-Pierre, an imposing and impressive monument. With its stunning architecture, frescoes and stained glass windows, it is considered one of the most beautiful churches in the Maritime Provinces. Return to Baddeck in the late afternoon. Enjoy dinner together tonight at the hotel

See the Old Town Clock, St. Paul's Church, City Hall, Government House, the Titanic Memorial and the site of the Halifax explosion. Stop at the lovely Victorian Halifax Public Gardens with its opulent floral displays, and the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, a key naval station built in 1828. The balance of the day is at leisure

DAY 7, Monday - Peggy's Cove, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic
This morning, travel to picturesque Peggy's Cove, a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St. Margarets Bay. Here, view the iconic Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, one of Canada’s most photographed lighthouse. Afterward, return to Halifax to visit the Maritime Museum where Nova Scotia's rich maritime heritage is remembered and celebrated. Learn about the stories, events, and people that have come to define Nova Scotia and its relationship with the sea. The permanent Titanic exhibit at the museum relates the tale of this fated ship's creation and demise, highlighting the key role Halifax played in the disaster. Exhibits also include life aboard the Titanic - sit in a reproduction of a rare Titanic deck chair and imagine what it would have been like to relax aboard the deck of the most luxurious vessel in its time. Tonight, enjoy a lovely Farewell Dinner on the last night in Eastern Canada with your newfound friends

Words cannot describe what an amazing trip we had. The beauty of the Canadian Rockies is indescribable. You have to experience it to know what I'm talking about. The choice of hotels was perfect and the excursions made the trip a wonderful adventure. Our tour manager, Robyn McGregor, was exceptional in doing her job. She was so professional in that she became our advisor, our "Mom", our protector, our friend. We were so blessed to have her as our tour manager. Gate 1 has a valuable employee. It is obvious she loves her job and we were the recipients of that love. Kudos for Robyn! Our bus driver, Matthew, was a great driver. He drove that big bus with such confidence. A NASCAR driver could not have done a better job. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were comfortable and the bus was immaculate. Plus, he had an adorable personality. Again, Gate 1 has a valuable employee. We are so glad we chose the Canadian Rockies Tour to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Thank you, John, for all your help. Look forward to your expertise with another trip in the near future. By the way, our friends, Buddy and Brenda, had a wonderful time.

We had a marvelous time. Our guide Karen was great. She was very friendly, helped us get tickets to a musical, and was there always making the trip special. We had our 11 year old granddaughter with us and the group and leader couldn't have been better with her also. We all look forward to planning our next Gate 1 trip.

Our trip was absolutely wonderful, one of our best!!! Our tour guide Robyn was outstanding as was the bus driver, Bill. The scenery, sights, and activities were better each day, if that was even possible as everything was great. The weather was spectacular, cool crisp, sunny mountain air. I will highly recommend this trip to our friends. We certainly plan to travel with Gate 1 again.

The trip was wonderful ... an amazingly beautiful part of our world and the weather was perfect! In particular, our guide, Tom, made it all the more interesting as he is a retired earth science teacher -- he taught us so much about the rivers, mountains, glaciers and trees and how they all tie together. He also made it fun and engaging. We saw quite a bit of wild life. Of course, as in past trips, I met some wonderful people along the way. I was very impressed with Canada in general, and the people, who are most friendly. The people there obviously enjoy and protect their environment. It was very clean. Our hotels and meals, for the most part, were also very good. I look forward to another Gate 1 adventure!

All went very well. Most spectacular scenery and wildlife. From Waterton, Glacier Park in Montana, Banff, Jasper with all the lakes, glaciers, falls, boat rides and Bow River rafting kept us most busy. Great trip and worthwhile. Thx.

The trip was excellent. Tom was our tour manager and he was the perfect combination of professional, knowledgeable, and just an all around nice guy who made us feel comfortable and added to the enjoyment of the trip. Gate 1 is fortunate to have him as a tour manager.

Our trip to the Canadian Rockies was terrific. Our guide, Tom, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the geological features of the areas we visited and about Canada in general. Tom had a great sense of humor, very personable, very helpful / considerate of our comfort needs and a great ambassador for Canada. Tom started every morning on the bus with a quote and a song. On the first day of our tour, when Tom said he would do this, the group was a bit skeptical. After hearing the first quote and song, we knew his verbal and musical commentary would be fun and thought provoking as well. My favorite quote described Canada as our attic ... you don't know what beautiful things you will find until you go up there to explore. The itinerary included many stops at points of interest and experiences including the gondola at Sulphur Mountain, the cruise around Spirit Island on Maligne Lake and the Maligne Canyon, the historic hotels built by the Canadian Railway and many, many wonderful vistas. We enjoyed spectacular scenery every day and we enjoyed every minute of this adventure. We were very fortunate to have Tom as our guide. He managed our bus full of 41 travelers very well including the unexpected mechanical problems of the bus that caused a short delay one morning. We appreciate all that Tom did to make this visit to the Canadian Rockies very special for my husband and me. Thank you for great service.

The trip was absolutely marvellous. I enjoyed every minute of it. Enjoyed visiting all the sites.The service was also excellent. And that also applies to all the hotels we called at. We had a great tour guide on board and the coach driver was also an excellent driver. Also enjoyed the company of the few local local guides who joined us. I am sure that should I plan another trip to North America and wish to make a tour, I will certainly apply to Gate 1. That is why I have an account with your website. Thank you for providing me with a superb holiday, to which I can look back on with great pleasure.

We enjoyed our trip very much. We learned a great deal about the ecology, history and culture of Nova Scotia and surrounding provinces in Canada. It was great to have Karen, a guide who is from Halifax, as she is very invested in sharing her knowledge of the area. Karen kept us supplied with hand-outs, maps, brochures, and detailed daily itineraries.  I really liked that she gave us maps to draw on so we would know what our route was when we were on the bus. Some of the bus rides to get from place to place can be long, so it was nice that she had informative and entertaining DVDs, or local music to play for us, as well as talking to us about the area we were visiting. What I appreciate about Gate 1 trips is how much I learn about an area in a short time. The itinerary was varied and we had plenty of free time to explore. My highlights were the Fort at Louisbourg, The Bay of Fundy and Hopewell Rocks, Peggy's Cove, Cape Breton Highlands, (great scenery), the sail on The Amoeba on Bras d' Or Lakes. I have traveled and hiked in the highlands in Scotland in the Western Hebrides, so visiting Nova Scotia and learning more about the area has always been a dream of mine, and the Gate 1 trip did not disappoint. The welcome dinner at a local pub was great, with lobster and mussels. Keep it in the itinerary! Karen is a great guide. She is very upbeat, helpful, and worked very hard to keep us engaged and comfortable. Thanks.

It was fantastic. Our guide, Karen, was informative and so much fun.  Plus the weather cooperated, too. I had been to this area before, but this trip showed me many more sites. Since Karen was so popular with everyone at the sites, we were warmly welcomed.  I've traveled with Gate 1 before and I will again.  Thanks for the opportunity.

Our trip to the Canadian Rockies was fantastic; and our guide, Diana, the best ever (and we have had some great ones!). The itinerary was well planned and executed perfectly. Diana never missed an opportunity to educate and amuse us at every opportunity. She made sure that everyone had a good and comfortable stay in the hotels and the bus. Water, tea, coffee, stops enroute were very well planned and always in an area that provided for "choices" in the local economy. We enjoyed our seat rotation which gave us an opportunity to meld as a group. Our driver Claude was steady and helpful, a real asset! They both gave us their personal experiences from past visits and interesting facts about the places.

The scenery was spectacular and their unique little side trips made it a vacation to remember! Unfortunately the bears decided to take the same 10 days off.

Again we cannot say enough.

It was a wonderful experience. It was well planned and executed to perfection. Our travel guide was a wonderful lady. She made sure that everyone had a good and comfortable stay in the hotels and the bus. Water, tea, coffee, stops enroute were very well planned. Isabelle and Don made us feel a part of the whole gang. They gave us their personal experiences from past visits and interesting facts about the places. The driver Don was steady and safe.

We thank Gate 1 for this Trip.
