      Nice Place to Visit
      I have been to Charlottetown, PEI, Canada several times. It is always a fun place to visit and would recommend it to anyone else.

      Great, capturing the highlights of the city… The true Guide was excellent and we had a great time… It is well worth the investment to see the city this way

      Oakdale Church Deshler Ohio bus trip to Lancaster PA
      A fantastic trip through Senior Excursions to Lancaster PA. Moses at Sight and Sound was incredible! We also enjoyed The Home Game at Bird-in-Hand Theater. Other stops were the Amish Experience, Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market, Kitchen Kettle Village, and Strasburg Railroad. So much packed into three days. Our bus company Excursions Trailways Ft Wayne and our hotel The Tru were great! Great food at Miller's and Yoders Smorgasbords. Highly recommend this trip. Great experience.

      Charlottetown a nice place to visit.
      I believe that this tour gave a good overview of the city and some of the suburbs. The driver was entertaining and humorous time well spent. The bus was older, and while the bus was quaint, it was somewhat uncomfortable, because the seats were not necessarily attached . Other than this, I think it was a trip worth taking.

      Very informative!
      We took the tour first day into our holidays and learned a good deal about the city and where we wanted to explore more! Our driver was very informative and provided ideas also of where to eat in the upcoming week. The bus does need a little upkeep though

      Great tour. The driver was informative and entertaining, ticket agent welcoming and helpful. It was a good length, speed and coverage of the city. Very accommodating. One person in our party uses a walker and was very comfortable. Good value for money. I would recommend.

      Disappointing Tour
      Very disappointing tour. We were in Charlottetown for several days & wanted a quick overview of the town & its history. We got neither. What we did get was a crowded old bus with no A/C & windows that would not open. It was stifling. The tour had slight mention of the history of Charlottetown, & the tour didn't go through very much of the old historic part of the city. We could tell that the other passengers were disappointed. I think a walking tour of the old section would have been better. We can't recommend this tour.

      Unfortunate Experience
      We had toured with another Prince Edward Tour the day before and had a great experience. Also, we had read the other two reviews, which were incredibly positive and we were hopeful. I am sorry to say we had a poor experience with this tour. The van driver, Caroline, spoke mostly about her personal life and not about PEI. She was not knowledgeable about the island, having just moved here three years ago. There were not clear time frames, and there were times when the driver did not seem to know where she was going. It seems she was usually a bus driver for a large bus, but not a guide. Also, it was difficult to hear her because she did not wear a microphone. In addition, the tour mentions a small gift provided by the company while at the winery for those who do not drink, and there was nothing of the sort; indeed, there was a snide comment by the winery owner, "This is a winery and distillery, so why are you here if you don't drink?" One of the reasons we chose this tour was because it had provisions for those who do not drink alcohol, along with the other sites. I would not recommend this tour.

      Shore excursion
      I would recommend a tour by this company. They are licensed and knowledgeable about PEI, Charlottetown, area, etc. Blaine was our driver. He was great! All transactions were smooth on this private tour of 6 with adult family members. I didn't know where exactly to meet him after getting off the ship. However, I called the number and within seconds he found us. I definitely recommend.

      A charming tour
      We did the 1 hour tour around the town and surrounds. The stop was easy to find at the cruise terminal. $30 CAN or $25US We enjoyed the tour, guided by our bus driver Dean Martin. After travelling for so long, it was charming to visit a town and see the suburbs where the "real people" live

      Good tour of Charlottetown PEI
      It was easy to find the Prince Edward Island tour at the cruise ship terminal in Charlottetown PEI. We had booked ahead. The bus was small which was very welcome & we got a good seat for viewing. Our guide was very knowledgeable & easy to understand. This is a big plus as my husband is hearing impaired. The sites were interesting & the guide explained the area. A very good experience.

      Great tour guide
      We booked this as an independent shore excursion for a private group of 4 people. Paul was our driver and he was on time waiting as communicated. Van was clean and Paul was passionate about PEI and what we would see. He planned the itinerary to avoid tour buses and gave us plenty of time to see the sights. Very good experience and we would highly recommend Paul for any tour on PEI.

    Tour and tour guide were excellent. Anne of GG site and museum were good but staff at cafe easily overwhelmed by just a few people trying to get something to eat. They only had chips, ice cream and beaver tails that took WAY too long to cook for the number of people there. Short stop at jam/preserves shop which couldn’t handle two busses of people. Tour guide was excellent with interesting stories. Scenery was outstanding. Would do it again but would pack a lunch and something to drink!!!

    If you’re looking for a way to visit Green Gables and you have your own transportation you should go directly to the site on your own. The tour is on a big tour bus that makes a couple other stops besides GG for a few minutes in a lobster village and at a nice little preserves maker, but you only get around an hour at GG. The bus doesn’t go to or near the beaches or lighthouses. The tour guide is engaging and enthusiastic, but there aren’t many historic places to narrate so it’s a lot about farming and fishing and life on the island, etc. So if you’re an Anne fan and you have a car, go on your own to Green Gables where admission is less than $10 U.S.

    We went in October 2022. I would say this tour is worth taking if you have limited time to explore the Anne of Green Gables museum. The guide was very enthusiastic and informative and she shared her knowledge with us in a way that was engaging and enjoyable. The bus we took was clean and in good repair and everything was very comfortable. Unfortunately we could not walk on the beaches because the recent hurricanes eroded them so badly. That was honestly a huge disappointment because it’s one of the iconic things in the movie, that red sand. Not anyone’s fault but it would have been nice to at least stop and take pictures of the scenery. L. M. Montgomery’s books are so descriptive of scenery and it felt like we didn’t really get much of that on the drive. I also would have liked to stop at her gravesite. Maybe not everyone would do that but it felt like it would have been a nice spot to pause for a moment at. Having said all that, we were on a cruise and we’re grateful to have had at least a little taste of PEI while we were there. We hope to go back and spend more time really getting to know the place one day.

    Dawnelda (sp?) was delightful. She and the bus driver have a comedy routine which kept us chuckling. We learned a great deal about PEI and its history plus current economy and livelihood of the residents. Loved it so much, we'd like to come back to visit again! The guide was so positive. It was a windy, rainy day and she reminded us of how lucky we were to be there on a day when the waves were so beautiful!

    She gave information about PEI including history, economy, geology. But the best part was Green Gables where I was not told what someone else wanted me to know about Anne, but gave me the time to dwell on my memories from first reading the books in 1947. My memories were respected. The properties were cared for and kept up to expectations. It was as if the character had just left for school.

    This tour was full of information and efficient. The guide was knowledgeable, and the bus driver was competent. We learned a lot about the island in a short period of time. I recommend this tour to others wanting an overview of Anne of Green Gables and Prince Edward Island on the whole.

    Have you read the "Anne of Green Gables" series of books? This site of the farm where Lucy Maude Montgomery once lived helps to bring the books to life. It's a glimpse of farm life in her lifetime and you can just see Anne running across the lawn. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed touring the house, barns and yard of this well preserved home. The displays of the author's life and accomplishments are well documented and interesting. Make it a "must see" stop on your next trip to the Maritimes! You will be glad you did!

    Great tour! The Anne of Green Gables house is a 45 minute ride from the cruise port. The house was really cute and they did a good job of accommodating huge crowds. Also had a nice place to purchase snacks. We also enjoyed the island tour and also visited the Prince Edward Island Preserve Co. They use Grand Marnier in their preserves and jams.

    The tour driver/Guide was entertaining and gave us history about PEI, its seafood and potato industry. She was excellent. We learnt about the lobster, clam and oyster industry and stopped briefly at Cavendish beach before arriving at Anne of green gables heritage site. We were free to tour the site at our own leisure. On the drive back, we saw a bit of Charlottetown- areas that I would not have seen otherwise. It was a fantastic tour
