I was meant to take a tour with a company called Salty Bear to visit Cape Breton and the surrounds but their tour guide quit last minute and they asked the owner of Great E.A.R.T.H Expeditions to run it for our group instead. What luck because Ryan, owner of Great Earth is a fantastic tour guide, has great knowledge of the area and was fun to boot. I fell in love with Nova Scotia thanks to Ryan’s expertise. Our group enjoyed him so much that many of us took a few additional day tours he offers during our stay in Nova Scotia (Annapolis Valley and Peggy’s Cove). If you are ever in Halifax, I highly recommend his tours… http://www.greatearthexpeditions.com.
