Enjoyed the trip with lots of stops. Was a bit worried about how much driving it would be but the stops broke the drive up nicely! 10/10 would recommend
Took my mother for her bday gift and kept it all a mystery for both of us. We absolutely loved our day out together and actually ended up so near to my grandmother’s old house so ended up with a mini trip down memory lane. We had fun !
One of the recommendations the trip had was Duntroon Cyder
House & Farm, we thought they closed at 5pm but I guess they had changed their hours to 4pm. Make sure to tripple check when things close. Otherwise it was super fun and unique!
Loved Guess Where Trips!!!! They had way more activities planned per stop than we had anticipated (which is a good thing!) Def think if they recommend following their instructions (ie. leave EARLY and grab those hiking shoes if they say to) and also to make this an overnight trip. We did a day trip, but with the amount of activities, it would have been smart of us to turn it into an overnight trip :) All the places were super cute - altho wish there were more instructions for the hike locations (where to park our cars)
The bakeries were great except for the Hockley General Store (overrated, overpriced) which was also included in a previous trip we took. The beach that was recommended was full of construction equipment and machines and the view was a bit of an eyesore. John and Marie's Emporium was closed, and according to a friendly local who stopped to chat with us, is "never open."
The drive was nice and scenic and the bakery spots were great, but overall I'd give this trip a C.
