Pawtucket, RI (February 9, 2023) – Collette takes pride in providing travelers with remarkable experiences while on tour. A large part of that starts with the tour manager. Travelers who embarked on Collette’s Maritime Coastal Wonders tour, raved about their local guide, rating the experience as “excellent,” which is the highest rating, 89% of the time.

Travelers on this tour specifically noted the excellence of their tour manager Darren Stone. Collette traveler Michele G. of Mount Sinai, New York, praised Stone, “Darren is an exceptional tour guide/manager. We learned so much from him as he shared his tremendous expertise. He is very solutions oriented as he got us through a bus ‘blip.’ Another traveler, Patricia P. of Los Gatos, California, echoed the message on Stone, saying, “He ensured we had the best return on our investment and optimized our touring experience each and every day.”

On top of Stone’s wonderful guidance, the tour also has plenty of great experiences for travelers to enjoy as they explore the Maritimes. The 11-day journey along Canada’s Maritime Provinces includes opportunities for travelers to visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, enjoy a traditional Martimes lobster feast at the Fundy Trail, and even learn to properly prepare some Prince Edward Island mussels. Travelers can book their spot on the “Maritimes Coastal Wonders” tour with a departure date as early as June 11, 2023, for prices starting at $3,299 USD pp.

“Our Maritime Coastal Wonders tour provides travelers a great opportunity to explore the pristine beauty of Canada’s Maritime Provinces, while also diving into its diverse local cultures,” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, President and Chief Brand Officer at Collette. “We’re proud to be able to offer an experience where travelers are able to not only experience a rich culture, but to build a strong relationship with their tour manager. Often times, our travelers will keep in touch with their tour managers long after their tour has come to an end.”
