She sells seashells by the seashore – and fresh lobster, steamed mussels, and seared scallops, too. Lemon and drawn butter will become your new best friends on this coastal tour of Maine and all three of Canada’s Maritime provinces. As you make your way from rocky beaches to charming fishing villages, you’ll savor the catches of the day – and the views of a lifetime. The granite peaks of Acadia National Park, the giant stone formations of Hopewell Rocks, and the rolling Highlands of Cape Breton present incredible natural wonders while manmade treasures abound as well. See the famous lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, the Anne of Green Gables farmhouse, and the quaint settlement of St. Andrews By-the-Sea. While the local fisherman of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island will happily demonstrate their rugged lifestyles, you’ll sink into the luxuries of two pampering resorts – the Digby Pines and the historic Algonquin.

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

HILLARY JOHNSON

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

During a summer in Ireland when I was 12, I was bitten by the "travel bug." I lived in Europe and became a Tour Director after graduating with a degree in European Languages. I am never as alive as when I am on the road. The haunting echo of a saxophone on a New Orleans street, the heady evening perfume of Jasmine in bloom, the sweet taste of a beignet, and the joyous "AA-eeeee!" of a Cajun dancer all need to be experienced... observing them from afar is not enough.
