GROTON — The Merry Trippers senior travel group is sponsoring a five-day trip to Maritime, Canada with one overnight in St. John, New Brunswick; two nights in Halifax, Nova Scotia; and another night in St. John before returning home. The trip is July 3 to 7, and the price is $599. In addition, all rooms are double occupancy.
Motorcoach transportation, hotel, four breakfasts and four dinners, tickets to the Nova Scotia tattoo, and experienced tour manager and guide are included in the price.
The tour is timed to take advantage of the Nova Scotia tattoo which is an indoor international extravaganza with music, dance, acrobatics, military drills, pipes and drums, and much more. Performers from Canada and all over the world add a dramatic dimension to this one-of-a-kind show.
There will be a variety of sightseeing as well including Peggy’s Cove, the historic city of Halifax and the Reversing Falls of St. John just to name a few. There will be time to explore the Halifax waterfront on your own. We will be staying at the elegant Prince George Hotel in Halifax.
