Short Description

Mornin’ sunshine! Not only are the residents of Newfoundland and Labrador the first to see the sunrise in North America, they’re also lucky enough to see floating icebergs, spouting whales, and plunging puffins on a regular basis. Pack your shades for the quaint lighthouses, rainbow- colored houses, and other bright sights this tour of Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer, including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Witness the exceptional beauty and unique geological features of Gros Morne National Park, walk in the footsteps of Vikings at L’Anse Aux Meadows National Historic Site Red Bay, and immerse yourself in the life of a 16th-century whaler at the Red Bay Basque Whaling Station. A ferry crossing between Newfoundland and Labrador – plus scenic cruises around Bonne Bay and the Witless Bay Islands – offer additional vantage points of this windswept, wondrous land. Don’t forget to toast the stunning sunset with a local iceberg beer or a shot of Screech. In most parts of North America, budding daffodils are the first sign that spring has sprung. In Newfoundland and Labrador, floating icebergs are the cue to break out the pastels. This special Newfoundland and Labrador departure includes time at the annual Iceberg Festival in St. Anthony to celebrate the season and the arrival of the icebergs. Enjoy a scenic cruise in search for wildlife and icebergs, a delicious Viking feast, and many other tasty cultural events the festival has to offer.

The tour was well planned, but a bit rushed for me. I would have preferred my time on my own. The tour guide was amazing.

While it was winter, the bus was freezing. Once we got to Lisbon our flight was delayed and we were caught up in a rebooking nightmare with NO help from British Airlines. It was so disorganized.

The entire tour was a wonderful experience. One suggestion that I would make is:
In Santiago what was on our tour list did not happen due to local holiday. There were some things that were still open like the Gran Torre building that we could have visited or the Metropolitan Park. That day was a waste of a day.

As a single traveller I thoroughly enjoyed a recent tour of Jordan. The hotels were way much better than expected as were the meals, and a glass of wine included with the evening meal was a surprise. Also a supply of bottled water on the coach was most welcome. The only down side was my flight didn’t get into Amman until 11pm and the flight out was 9am so the 7 day holiday was only really a 5 day holiday. Also the BA 5.5hr flight only offered you a bag of crisps and a small bottle of water. That aside I would actual do that same tour again.
