This morning, travel to HOPEWELL ROCKS and enjoy a guided visit to learn about the highest and wildest tides in the world, which rise and fall up to 52 feet (15.8 metres).

Booking With Global Journeys
I was a solo traveller on this tour and was keen to go to Prince Edward Island. The scenery is beautiful although a little too early for Autumn colours. I loved the visit to Green Gables. It was a happy group and a tour I would recommend if your interest is in that area of Canada. Halifax is a lovely city also.
