Feedback from Tour Participants:

I was planning a solo trip to the Bay of Fundy for rock picking for several months now. The more the preparation progressed the more I realized the complexity of the different geosites as well as the potential dangers related to high tides. Anna contacted me directly on a rock picking Facebook group and she offered to revise my route and to create a tides chart for me. She scheduled a Zoom with me where we were able to discuss my needs and expectations and make the first connection! From there she came back to me with suggestions in terms of site to visit that would be more aligned with my goals. In the end theses suggestions were the highlights of my trip and I feel so grateful she connected. Because of her, I came back home with the most beautiful and complete Bay of Fundy rocks collection. Anna knows all the best kept secrets of the Bay, she is fun to be around and in pretty good shape. She took into consideration all my needs, my physical limits and saved me a huge amount of time in showing me to the most beautiful « must go » places to find all the amethysts, agates, stilbite, chabazite and much more! Anna thanks for all the great pictures, for sharing your knowledge with me and for the fun time we spent together walking the ocean floor and cliffs you made me feel so safe and special !

Thank you Anna, for showing me all the wonderful places in our area. I feel safe with you and your knowledge of the tides and how much time we have to enjoy the treasures you take us out too . Our visiting friends very much enjoyed the ocean walk floor at 5 islands and hearing the local history of the area. 
Your kind and easy-going nature make touring with you fun and comfortable. You certainly have an eye for beauty and detail!
