Overview

While Rusty Rover Tours is listed as #1 in Stratford, a suburb of Charlottetown, we are a leader in our field and serve the whole Charlottetown and Prince Edward Island region. Charlottetown is the cruise ship port for Prince Edward Island. If you are visiting the island, Rusty Rover Tours is your choice of tour operators for shore excursions. Rusty Rover Tours is owned by Islanders Irwin Judson, TCP and his wife Joan. We offer both preplanned and customized tours as well as step-on guide service for incoming groups. Our guides are mature, knowledgeable Islanders who can show you the best of Prince Edward Island's scenery and attractions. We use comfortable and luxurious seven minivan and a twelve passenger luxury van. If your group is larger than five who can fit into a minivan, then we offer our very comfortable 12 passenger van. We are the only tour operator in Prince Edward Island with this high-end type of van. Our tours are constantly complimented for their itinerary and the quality of their commentary. For a friendly, relaxed and flexible tour try Rusty Rover. Come, let us show you Our Island!
