    Skywalk & The Reversing Falls Rapids

    Saint John, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

    Duration 2.5 hours

    Experience the thrill of walking high above the Reversing Falls Rapids at the new Skywalk in Saint John. You will be suspended 120 feet above the water on the Skywalk, made using the most advanced technology in glass and steel, which offers an unparalleled view of this natural wonder.


    Enroute to the Skywalk with your local guide, your tour begins by exploring Saint John’s highlights, including the colorful streets of Saint John’s historic uptown, a short walk along the water’s edge on Harbour Passage, and the breathtaking view from Fort Howe.


    Stop for a photo at Fallsview Park, where the mighty St. John River meets the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy, thus creating this unique phenomenon. Tides in the Bay of Fundy rise and fall up to 50 feet each day. Fallsview Park, one of the geosites in Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark, will give you a look at the Reversing Falls Rapids from the lowest point on land, before you make your way to the highest and most exciting lookout at the Skywalk. The rocks at the Reversing Falls Rapids exhibit one of the most interesting stories in the Stonehammer Geopark. Here you can see where two continents collided and view the exposed rock ranging from 50 million to 1 billion years old.


    When you arrive onsite at the Skywalk, there is so much to see and do! Be brave and take a walk on the glass Skywalk, suspended 24 feet past the rock cliff’s edge over the Reversing Falls Rapids. Take in a short film that explains the tides in the Bay of Fundy, and how the unique Reversing Falls Rapids are created when the force of the Bay of Fundy collides with the mighty St. John River, forcing the river to reverse direction and flow backwards twice each day. The Skywalk offers an incredible vantage point to take a thrilling walk over the Reversing Falls Rapids.


    Need to Know:

    Note: Although rare, severe weather can affect the availability of the Skywalk. Children must be able to walk on their own on the glass Skywalk.

    Ephesus, Didyma & Miletus

    Kusadasi, Turkey

    Duration 7 1/2 hrs

    Visit three meticulously excavated cities whose ruins reveal their splendor and prosperity in ancient times.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a picturesque drive to the excavated ruins of Miletus, an ancient city that the Greeks founded near the Menderes River. Although the city was abandoned in the 6th century when its harbors silted up, Miletus once prospered, as you will discover by wandering through its remains.


    Among the highlights are a Greco-Roman theater that held 25,000 spectators and the Baths of Faustina, a complex with water fountains shaped like the river god Meander. Despite the relevance of the historical sites, it is hard to imagine that Miletus was once on a peninsula with four harbors, as it is now on a plain that lies five miles inland.


    Not far away, you will find the ruins of Didyma, whose key landmark is the Temple of Apollo. One of the largest temples in the ancient world, it was a magnificent monument whose sacred oracle rivaled that of the more famed one in Delphi.


    More fabulous ruins await your exploration in the World Heritage site Ephesus, where you will behold one excavated building after another. They include the theater where St. Paul preached, the Church of the Virgin Mary and the Library of Celsus, a monument constructed as a mausoleum with a separate library for scrolls and codexes.


    Back in Kusadasi, you might spend free time shopping or stay in town longer for an enlightening carpet lecture.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes approximately 3 hours of walking. It is not available to guests who utilize a wheelchair. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual, weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable, flat walking shoes are suggested.

    Bocelli Wine Experience

    Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy

    Experience the joys of Andrea Bocelli’s world by visiting places that the revered tenor and his family own in and around his hometown of Lajatico. Your enlightening journey will begin at the Teatro del Silenzio, an open-air amphitheater that Bocelli’s architect brother designed. Andrea performs here but once a year; the rest of the time the theater is silent, filled only by the sounds of nature. The family’s influence also extends into wine making, as you will discover while touring the Bocelli wine cellars, which hold classic Italian wines produced on the Tuscan estate that the family has owned since 1730.


    You will have the opportunity to sample the wines and indulge in a buffet-style lunch of Tuscan delicacies at the Officine Bocelli restaurant. The wines may include a red made entirely from Sangiovese grapes and a crisp, complex Pinot Grigio. Upstairs, you will find a museum with a collection of awards, photos and memorabilia that celebrates Andrea’s musical achievements.

    Breathtaking Beauty of the Fundy Trail

    Saint John, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

    Duration 7 hours

    Admire the natural beauty surrounding the Bay of Fundy by visiting a coastal park full of hiking trails, lookouts and historical buildings from the years when this area was logged.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing drive to St. Martins, a lovely coastal village settled in 1783. It is known for its twin covered bridges, which you will view from a vantage point that allows you to capture both bridges in one spectacular shot.


    Continuing on, you will travel the winding Fundy Trail Parkway, passing forest lookouts, more beautiful beaches and the spectacular Bay of Fundy that rims the park. At the Big Salmon Interpretive Centre, you will watch an enlightening video about the park’s history and the modest lodge that newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst built nearby.


    You will then have free time to enjoy the attractions that interest you most. You might meander the hiking paths, cross the suspension footbridge that spans the crystal-clear Salmon River, and explore the replica sawmill. Be sure to see Flower Pot Rock, a tall thin rock tower that the pounding sea has shaped over time.


    The bay’s rising tides have also created sea caves in the red sandstone, which you will see on the return to St. Martins. While totally submerged during high tide, the caves are easy to reach at low tide and make for a memorable photo any time. Following lunch at a restaurant that overlooks the caves, you will return to Saint John.

    Game of Thrones – Venture Through King's Landing

    Dubrovnik, Croatia

    Duration 4 hours

    Visit several of Old Town’s most iconic sites, which gained even greater fame after serving as locations for the fictional capital King’s Landing in “Game of Thrones.”


    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive in the oldest section of Dubrovnik, a revered UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fans of the TV series “Game of Thrones,” which is based on George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy novels, will recognize this part of Dubrovnik as King’s Landing, the fictional capital of the Seven Kingdoms.


    Your first stop will be imposing Lovrijenac Fortress, located just outside the medieval walls that encircle Old Town. Known as Dubrovnik’s Gibraltar, the 11th-century fortress perches atop a craggy rock overlooking the sea, which represented Blackwater Bay in the books.


    Continuing on, you will enter Old Town and make your way to the defensive walls to the south. After climbing the steps, you will walk along the stone battlements, which afford extraordinary views of the sea and the inner city. These walls appeared in numerous scenes in “Game of Thrones”; they were particularly prominent in the Battle of Blackwater Bay.


    Later, you will enjoy free time within Old Town, where you may explore other sites that you may recognize from the series. For instance, the Jesuit Staircase was where Cersei Lannister began her Walk of Shame in Season Five, and many of the show’s market scenes were filmed along St. Dominic Street. Following free time, you will return to the pier.
