Amazing experience
Sep. 2021 • Friends
Alternative Routes is amazing! We took the one day Peggy’s cove trip and the next day a 3 day PEI trip. Sam was an amazing tour guide, who is so knowledgeable of the area and things to do and places to eat… Greenwich beach was a memory of a lifetime! Can’t wait to go back and use alternative routes again! Thanks again Sam

Amazing tour, Sam is the best!!
Sep. 2021
Alternative routes is the best way to see Nova Scotia & PEI! I did the three day PEI tour and the day trip to Peggy's Cove & it was amazing! Sam is so nice and very accommodating. She told us so much about the island and recommended restaurants & shops to visit. I liked how flexible she was and if she saw something she thought we'd like she stopped to show us. Greenwich beach was my favorite part! Loved the deep sea fishing boat tour and fishing for the first time! Cooking lobster on the beach was definitely an experience I'll never forget! Anyone who wants to see Nova Scotia in a day needs to check out Alternative Routes!!

Hopped off and hopped on again in Lunenburg
Sep. 2021 • Solo
A great way to see the more well-known places in the area, as well as the less famous but nonetheless lovely places. Sam will take you to hidden gems and entertain you with her interesting stories throughout the whole trip.

I hopped off in Lunenburg and stayed for 2 nights before I hopped on again to finish the tour with her... I think this is what sets her tour off from the others, being able to stay longer in a place along the route.

Great tour, highly recommended!
Aug. 2021
I truly loved the experience! Sam was right on time and picked us up right in front of our hotel. Despite the rainy weather on the day of our tour, Sam just knew where to take us and turned that into a fantastic fun day! She was very lively and knowledgeable and I learned so much about Nova Scotia! We ended the day with a wine tasting and went back with amazing stories and beautiful memories! I also really enjoyed interacting with the three new people in the group. Also, would like to mention that everyone in the group was super respectful and wore masks while inside the van during the tour. I was stress-free and made some of the best memories on this trip! Whether you’re traveling solo or with family, it’s a great tour to do!

Amazing tour not to be missed!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Sam is an amazing tour guide! She picked us up directly from our BNB and filled the day with great sights and information! She also managed to fit in some hidden gems that were off the beaten path. She also shaped some of the elements of the day based on the weather, so not to worry if it’s not the best weather day, she’ll make the best of it. Would go again in a heartbeat!
