Wonderful trip of the Maritimes 8 , QLD, Australia, Aug 2016
The consultant that I dealt with over the phone was polite and very helpful. All queries were dealt with promptly. I hadn't heard of Collette tours until we were looking to do a Maritimes Tour. We were very impressed with the service and would look at touring with Collette again and I would recommend the company to friends. We loved the scenery (especially the Bay of Fundy and Hopewell Rocks) and the history of the Maritimes. We felt that in some places too much time was spent when there wasn't a lot to see. The hotels we stayed in were great. The farewell dinner and the lunch we had at The Cookhouse on the Bay of Fundy Trail were highlights. We met a lot of interesting people which also adds to the travel experience.
