Fundy Coast to Fundy Shore Tour - Saint John


Recommended Posts

We booked this excursion thru an outside vendor.

Has anyone ever experienced it?

3 stops

St Martins,(2 hours)

Reversing Falls,(1 hour)

& Saint Johns City Market (1 hour)

It almost sounds like it is a "photography tour"

I enjoy taking pictures, but was curious if the tour is more for photography buffs, and not for everyday tourists

Or is there perhaps something more worthwhile to spend our time on money on.

(cruise is this October, and excursions are booking fast)

Thanks to all who respond

We have cruised to Saint John several times, and have always just walked around the city on our own. The City Market is walking distance from the port, as are a number of interesting churches and other buildings, and the new Container Village (Area 506) right at the cruise terminal.

I don't know anything about St. Martins, so can't help there.

Reversing Falls only reverse in daylight twice a day; I wonder if your excursion would try to get you there at an interesting time.

An alternative might be the HOHO bus, which has a stop right at the ship. Tickets are sold in the terminal. (And it is sold as an inexpensive excursion on our cruise.)  Stops include the city market, and Fallsview Park/Reversing Rapids, but not St. Martins.  What is the attraction there?  This bus would allow you to stay as long or as short as you wish at any stop you get off at (within reason).  I believe this bus only runs during cruise season, so it might be wise to check your dates, if you are curious. It might also show as Big Pink Bus Tour.

I hope this is a start to making a decision.
