Saint John (New Brunswick) City Tour, Bay of Fundy, and St. Martin Excursion Reviews

Travel to the shores of the Bay of Fundy and explore the picturesque fishing village of St. Martins, complete with a visit to a working harbor and a stroll on a rugged Bay of Fundy beach.
Too long on the bus, little time in the stops.
Sail Date: September 2018
Too long on the bus, little time in the stops. Next time we would do the Bay of fundy express.

When we arrived tide was almost slack, so we didn't see the rushing water. Carleton Martello tower was great ... be sure to see the short movie first. Market was like any city market .... e.g. Lexington market in Baltimore.

Tour guide was outstanding as there is not that much to see there, but we did see the reversing tide and St. Martin. The bus broke down, but the local mayor came to the rescue with bottled water and cookies and in no time a new bus was delivered and we were able to complete our tour. St. Martin has 2 covered bridges and a beautiful rock beach overlooking sea caves where you can find wishing stones. Read Less

Great trip. The tour guide and driver were spectacular. Very informative and very friendly. The stops were neat, not too long and not too short. This trip included a lite lunch of seafood chowder (or chicken & fries for the land-lubbers) - Delicious. You also got to explore the rocky beach fore "friendship rocks". If you have kids be sure to check their pockets, we came home about 25 pounds heavier. You learn a lot about the city and the bus ride is very scenic! Read Less

The river flows out to the Bay, at low tide and the Bay flows into the river, at high tide. This was from the view point they took us to in Saint Johns.

Top 10 Best of Saint John excursion was excellent. We got to see the reversing waters at both high and low tide. What a difference between the two. We really enjoyed walking out to the caves, which we could do since it was low tide. The walk is not for everyone as it is difficult due to the rocky conditions.
