  • The picturesque crayoncoloured wood houses of Lunenburg not only make the Old Town the best surviving example of a British colonial town in North America, it makes it incredibly photogenic.
  • Discover the everchanging Hopewell Rocks in the Bay of Fundy. During low tide, you can walk among the ‘flowerpot’ rock formations carved by tidal erosion, and at high tide, it’s possible to see whales from the shore!
  • Explore the serene landscapes that beloved author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, called home and inspired her classic novel – Anne of Green Gables.
  • Take in jawdropping views of steep cliffs and deep river canyons in the Cape Breton Highlands, then cruise the Western Brook Pond in Newfoundland’s World Heritagelisted Gros Morne National Park.
The trip Nova Scotia & Newfoundland Expedition starts from Halifax and ends in St. John's. It is an adventure trip that takes 15 days taking you through Gros Morne National Park, St. John's, Halifax and 5 other destinations in Canada. Nova Scotia & Newfoundland Expedition is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Ocean mist that permeates the air of quaint colonial towns, the smell of freshly grilled seafood along scenic waterfront boardwalks, and picture-perfect lighthouses perched on rocky outposts – Canada’s Maritimes are like nowhere else in the world. This 15-day expedition takes you to some of the east coast’s most charming towns, best attractions and incredible parks. See the unusual formations of Hopewell Rocks at different stages of the tide, traverse the scenic Cabot Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands, cruise the Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne National Park and visit some of the oldest towns in North America. Add a hearty dose of quaint Atlantic charm for an outdoor adventure that will stay with you long after you’ve left Canada’s beautiful Atlantic provinces.

“India can be a very nice place to visit but definitely not for the faint hearted. It is not a clean place. Everywhere you go you can smell cow shit ( cow dung ) littered all over the roads and streets. Roads are small and narrow with potholes all over the place unrepaired. Traffic are in a state of chaos with no regard to rules or regulations. Weather has been an unbearable hot and smelly affair. Cows are considered sacred and are free to roam in the streets and roads. Very filthy on every streets and roads. Toilets in trains are stinky and of very poor standards. But you have to know....this is India ! Things are not what you expect ! Security is tight on all places we visited. And moving around is not easy with large bags and luggages. Electricity is a problem in India. It keeps cutting off every now and then. Many small to medium hotels and motels are not very well maintained and air conditioners are not working properly at times. A third world country experience. If that is what you are looking for !.”

“I had an amazing time. Highlights were Kruger national park and the Delta and the nighlty camp fires under the stars. It was a well planned trip mainly due to our tour leader Thabang, Lizzie our cook and Vincent our driver. There were long drives as per the itinerary but it was the only way to see the beautiful southern africa in a timely manner. Thank you for a great trip!”
