Top 10 Highlights & Bay of Fundy

Grab your camera and get ready to explore Saint John and Saint Martin. Saint John, also known as the Greatest Little City in the East, is a vibrant waterfront town and you'll soon understand why as you immerse yourself in its Victorian charms, Irish roots and friendly people. You will also visit Saint Martin, the village was founded as Quaco in 1783 by soldiers from the disbanded loyalist King's Orange Rangers. Life here is governed by the rhythm of the world's highest tides.

Stroll through picturesque tree-lined neighborhoods and make your way down to the historical architecture in the Trinity Royal Heritage Conservation Area. At the City Market you will meander through aisles of stalls with vendors peddling everything from fruit and cheese to gourmet coffees, teas and local apparel. Enjoy the immaculate gardens, monuments and bandstand at the public Kings Square, then head to the Loyalist Burial Grounds with its semi-circular arch-topped wrought iron gates. Once here, look at the worn engravings on the original tombstones of the first residents who arrived in America for "a way of life free of persecution and hostilities." While in town head to the Saint John River to watch the Reversing Falls Rapids, a series of rapids and whirlpools that occur as the river collides with the Bay of Fundy.

Down in the quaint fishing village of Saint Martin you will find the world's best seafood chowder and the world-famous Bay of Fundy. This special bay has the world's highest tides thanks to its unique delta shape. At the extreme, the difference between the low and high tides can measure up to 19 meters! Arrive at the bay when the Atlantic Ocean has rescinded and walk up to 40 feet across the ocean floor and see dark, hidden caves, breathtaking rock cliffs, dramatic mud flats and much more. While here, learn about the 12 species of whales as well as dolphins, fish, seals and other marine life that call these marvelous waters home.

This tour is a must-do for history buffs and bonafide nature lovers! Book this popular tour now and reserve your place.

Fantastic experience and fun guide

I loved this excursion! Our tour guide Steve was SO entertaining, kind and personable. It was so much fun when he surprised us by dressing up a few times during our day. A fisherman, a cook (at our lunch stop) and a bear on the trail. We went to some places and saw things that the huge tour busses don't. Our group was small and our smaller bus was the perfect experience. We went to the reversing falls at Bay of Fundy twice, high tide and low tide so we could see the difference. He took us to a few beaches and we saw some lovely scenery. He told us about the history of Saint John and the people there. We took pictures with the big iconic Moose at the Moosehead Brewery. I highly recommend taking this tour. You won't be disappointed!

Got to see all the highlights of the area, tour guide was great. He kept us entertained on the tour. He quizzed us at the end, and handed out a couple of little prizes to people who answered first. It was fun!
