Welcome to Aquila!
Since opening our doors in 1982, Aquila Tours has been on an incredible journey involving a wide variety of aspects of the travel industry, both in Atlantic Canada and around the world.
Today, Aquila's area of excellence is delivering shore excursions to cruise lines when they anchor in the Bay of Fundy and call on Saint John, New Brunswick. At the encouragement of top executives at major cruise lines, Aquila established the Aquila Center for Cruise Excellence in 2007, offering workshops and customized training programs to Tour Operators, Ports and Destinations around the world. As the exclusive training partner of the FCCA (Florida Caribbean Cruise Association), Aquila has spent much time over the past ten years in the Caribbean and Central America, offering certifications and designations to Tour Guides and Tour Operators.
In Saint John, we provide our cruise line clients in our "Living Lab" with a wide array of fantastic excursions for cruise guests - highlighting the Bay of Fundy region's most popular sights and the off-the-beaten-path experiences that only locals can provide. A key to achieving excellence for Aquila has been our dynamic, cohesive team, and throughout our journey, Aquila has held fast to our vision.
Our fun and energized Aquila Team continues to grow and be recognized as leaders in our industry by creating experiences with integrity while supporting professional and personal dreams.
This vision will continue to guide us into the future, as there is always something new and exciting happening at Aquila!
We took a shore excursion to the Bay of Fundy with driver Eric and tour
guide Faye. We had a great time. Faye was very knowledgeable about the area
and history. We purchased a handmade souvenir from the little shop next to
the restaurant and forgot it on the bus. We thought we would never see it
again, but to our surprise it was delivered to the ship. We would like to
thank your employees for their concern and honesty.
My husband and I took the Top 10 of Saint John. What a wonderful tour. Diane was the best tour guide we have had in years! Nothing better than seeing the sights and learning about the area from someone who loves the area so much. Thank you Diane!
A week ago we returned from our Princess New England/Canada cruise and took a tour of Saint John on Wednesday, October 2. Paula was our guide and Jim was our driver. The two of them made the tour most enjoyable and informative. They were very knowledgeable, personable, interactive with the passengers, and had a wonderful sense of humor. Paula and Jim were the best which made our tour one of the best.
