1 Arrive In Boston.
Welcome to "Bean Town." At 6 pm, meet your travelling companions for a welcome drink. Your Tour Director will prepare you for your upcoming adventure.
2 Boston - Portland - Bar Harbor.
From Massachusetts, head north via New Hampshire's shoreline and along Maine's rocky coast to Portland, one of New England's most famous cities. Stroll down the cobblestone streets of Portland's famous Old Port Exchange, lined with many boutiques, coffee houses, and art galleries. Spend the night in Bar Harbor, Maine's oldest summer resort. Your dinner this evening is a traditional LOBSTER BAKE featuring Maine lobster, steamed mussels, and delicious cornon- the-cob. (B/D)
3 Bar Harbor - Acadia National Park - Fredericton.
Nowhere along the Atlantic seaboard is the rock-bound coast as picturesque as in ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, one of America's most visited national parks. Take the scenic park road and enjoy the spectacular panorama from the summit of Cadillac Mountain, the first place in the continental United States to see the sunrise. After time at leisure in Bar Harbor, travel across the border to the capital of New Brunswick, Fredericton. Tonight, explore this culturally rich community by dining in the Historic Garrison District or strolling the St. John River along the Riverfront Trail and across the Railway Bridge. (B)
4 Fredericton - Saint John - Digby.
This morning, return to the coast to Saint John and board a FERRY to Digby, a popular summer resort. Your hotel tonight is the Digby Pines Resort, a world of casual elegance in the tradition of the grand hotels. Surrounded by breathtaking beauty, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the views, recreation, and internationally-renowned cuisine in this Norman-style chateau. Before dinner, take part in a private DEMONSTRATION by a local fisherman who will explain the importance of the Digby scallop and introduce you to Nova Scotian music. Later, dinner is included at the resort. (B/D)
5 Digby - Lunenburg - Peggy's Cove - Halifax.
Today, travel toward Nova Scotia's Atlantic coast and follow the winding shoreline to Lunenburg, one of the continent's major fishing ports and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, visit the FISHERIES MUSEUM before heading to Peggy's Cove, a charming fishing village with a famous lighthouse perched on a massive granite ledge (one of the most photographed places in the world). End in Halifax, the provincial capital and your home for the next two nights. (B
6 Halifax.
Your city sightseeing tour with a Local Guide this morning includes a visit to CITADEL HILL with its early 19th-century star-shaped fort; the tree-shaded walks of the public gardens; and the harbor area, which evokes the port's former strategic importance. You'll also see the Fairview Cemetery, final resting place for more than 100 people who perished on the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic. (B)
7 Halifax - Jeddore Oyster Pond - Baddeck.
Take the scenic Marine Drive north along the Atlantic shoreline through picturesque fishing villages, stopping en route in Jeddore Oyster Pond at FISHERMAN'S LIFE MUSEUM, a typical Nova Scotia fisherman's house from the early 1900s. Via Canso Causeway, cross over to Cape Breton Island, one of the first footholds of European settlement in the New World. Continue to Baddeck. (B/D)
8 Baddeck. Cabot Trail.
Today, drive along the CABOT TRAIL, the area explored by John Cabot in the late 15th century, while savouring magnificent vistas of the rocky shoreline and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Enjoy a PICNIC LUNCH while admiring the scenery. Finally, see CAPE BRETON HIGHLANDS NATIONAL PARK at the northern tip of the island, a landscape that strikingly resembles Scottish coastal regions. Return to Baddeck for a tasting of delicious Nova Scotian wines. (B/L)
9 Baddeck - Caribou - Charlottetown.
This morning, visit the ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL MUSEUM with exhibits tracing the achievements of the great inventor who spent the last years of his life on Cape Breton. Afterwards, head back to the peninsula and continue north to Caribou, where a FERRY whisks you across the Northumberland Strait to Prince Edward Island. For the next two nights, explore Charlottetown, the provincial capital. Get acquainted with this colonial town on a stroll through colourful Great George Street and along the restored waterfront. (B)
10 Charlottetown.
Enjoy your morning at leisure. Enjoy a guided afternoon tour of the island that includes PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND NATIONAL PARK. Also, visit GREEN GABLES farmhouse, the setting for the famous novel Anne of Green Gables. (B)
11 Charlottetown - Fundy National Park - St. Andrews Bythe - Sea.
Today, travel across the 8-mile Confederation Bridge returning to New Brunswick. Here, enjoy a guided visit of the HOPEWELL ROCKS, giant formations carved by the Bay of Fundy's dramatic tides that rise and fall more than 15 metres (50 feet) each day, before driving through FUNDY NATIONAL PARK. Tonight, stay at the historic Algonquin Resort, overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay. This evening, you may choose to visit the resort's manicured gardens or the rooftop patio. (B)
12 St. Andrews By - The - Sea - Rockland.
This morning, enjoy a tour of St. Andrews, one of New Brunswick's oldest and most distinctive settlements. Then journey through old-growth forest and across sheltered coves to quiet fishing villages along the way to Rockland. This evening, your Tour Director hosts a special farewell dinner. Wonderful conversation and cuisine make the perfect finale for your holiday. (B/D)
13 Rockland - Boston.
Depart this morning for Boston, pausing en route for a break in one of Maine's coastal towns. Arrive in the afternoon, with a stop at the airport for guests with homebound flights.

13 Day Maritimes Adventure reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“The Maritimes”
- VIC, Australia Sep 2018 2 Helpful Votes

The Maritimes are rich in both geography and history. The tour ranged from the rocky coastline with its lighthouses to the wooded inland, with stops in the villages and towns in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Cabot Island and Prince Edward Island (a must for the fans of Anne with an E). Highlights included; the Cabot Trail, Cadillac, the Fisheries Museum in in Lunenburg (where the fate of the cod fishing industry was described), the guided tour of Halifax (along with the visit to the graves of the...read more

“13 Day Maritmes ADventure (Globus)”
- QLD, Australia Jul 2016 5 Helpful Votes

Unfortunately we found this trip quite boring, we are aware of the distances between stops and attractions etc, but we spent way to much time on the coach seeing practically nothing, then when we did seem to stop at something interesting the time allowed there did not seem adequate, when at times we would stop for 1 1/2 hours for lunch (no packed lunches at all). Our driver was excellent, a very courteous and polite gentleman, again unfortunately our Tour Director was not we felt up to the standard...read more

“We are so happy that we selected this tour”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2014 1 Helpful Vote

We are so happy that we selected this tour based on possibly catching some of those much-touted 'Fall' colours. They were quite elusive due to a very mild season, but both our tour guide, Chris, and coach driver, Bob, promised they would find them, and find them they did - spectacularly so. In fact, Bob, a keen photographer, went out of his way (literally) to find us the perfect location for the perfect shot time and time again resulting in lots of Happy Snappers. The downside of the tour was...read more
