I've done about 20 reviews on Trip Advisor and all have been very good or excellent experiences. A recent October 2012 Tartan van tour of the Cabot trail was not a good experience. First off the price increased more than $60 from my first inquiry to $860 for 8 people (gas surcharge). Upon being picked up by van (van old and dirty, windows not even cleaned, van squeaked loudly) so not a good start to our trip. The van driver was nice but he didn't speak up so we couldn't hear him. He wasn't talkative so he didn't say a lot about the area. We stopped at very few places for picture taking during our 6.5 hour tour. Drove to Ingonish and back...same path. Our 3 other tours were $70-75 per person...Tartan was $107.25 pp. I was very unhappy at the conclusion of our tour.
