My expectations were met and exceeded during this tour, Ty our guide, was amazing and made it a fun experience! We will be back. It would be nice to maybe change the seats to bench style if you ever did Reno’s to the bike

A great time on the pedal pub!! The food and drink deals and locations could have been better and for the price of the booking would have thought at least one drink would be included on the bike. Otherwise was very fun! Driver was great.

Thank you Julie! So glad that you enjoyed your tour. :) It is always a challenge finding restaurants that can ALWAYS accommodate us AND give our riders a substantial discount AND serve our riders quickly enough to keep us on schedule. We have tried many different stops and the current restaurant selections have managed to handle the above better than anybody else. Thank you for your feedback regarding pricing. Currently we are the LOWEST priced Pedal Pub operation in North America (at least to my knowledge based on ongoing research) and I feel that our tours offer MORE value on top of this lowest price than any other Pedal Pub service in other areas as they do not have the beautiful scenery like PEI does and they do not offer substantial (or any) discounts at their participating restaurant/bar/pub partners. We have thought about including a drink and raising the price a little bit, and in fact, we used to do a $69 tour which included appetizer food & drink specials at 3 restaurant partner stops (before the bike was licensed) and it created a logistical nightmare with people having different dietary needs & not liking what was "included" in the price. We feared the same thing would happen if we included a drink or two with the price as some people don't drink alcohol & they would be paying a higher price for pop or water, etc. Also, we simply cannot provide all of the selections that some people may want & therefore they may choose to purchase drinks inside the pubs instead so they can get exactly what they like, in which case they would be paying for a drink that they don't want. I think that if you do some research &/or go on any other Pedal Pub tour, you will think back & realize that what we offer here in PEI is of tremendous value. :) Thank you again for choosing Ride Solar for your tour!

This is a unique experience on PEI and showcases the very best of downtown Charlottetown. Be prepared to have loads of fun and sample amazing food and local beers.
The guide for our tour (Ty) was amazing and ensured everyone had a brilliant time.
This is seriously recommended for small groups or larger parties to have a wonderful fun-packed afternoon as a precursor to an evening downtown.

The pedal pub tour was great fun with our fellow tourers, the pubs, and the driver and crew. If you enjoy a different kind of tour experience this one’s for you.

They oblige you to visit some restaurant, they drive 5 minutes and let you go for 25 minutes , than another 5 minutes and they will stop in front of another restaurant. And the driver will ask you to go inside even if you are not hungry, you don’t need to order , however it’s better to show your face that you are entering.

Hi 28ronym! I remember you from the tour on Monday. Thank you for your review & for taking a tour at Ride Solar. I am sorry that the experience you had was not what you anticipated, but we clearly outline exactly what the tour IS and IS NOT about. In fact, the entire itinerary is listed on our web site that you can simply read before booking a ticket. Unfortunately, if you do not read about our tour before booking then we cannot take responsibility for you not getting what you "think" you paid for. THIS IS A FOOD & DRINK PUB CRAWL WHICH INVOLVES VISITING 2 GREAT RESTAURANTS/PUBS WITH FOOD & DRINK SPECIALS. The first part of the tour is shorter and is usually 10-15 min until we hit our first restaurant stop where we go in for 25 min to enjoy great food & drink specials. It is not 5 min. After the first stop, we pedal through Victoria Park drinking ice cold beer, wine or other drinks on the bike for a full 45 min before hitting our next restaurant stop for 25 min for more great food & drink specials. It is not 5 min. Because it is a FOOD & DRINK PUB/RESTAURANT TOUR, we DO need to go to these stops so that we can supply what we advertise & we cannot accommodate other desires from some patrons at the expense of others. These are our restaurant partners & it hurts their business if we make reservations for people who decide not to read the itinerary and not show up. We don't do that to them as it is unfair & hurts their business. Thank you again for attempting to take a tour with us & I do suggest reading before you book your next tour so you are not disappointed. P.S. - You didn't pay for the 2 water that you received on the bike.

While it was disappointing that the other people who booked didn’t show, our guide Max made the best of it and it was a great experience. The three of us enjoyed it and I’d definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of doing it.

Great staff. They really made it fun and made sure everybody was enjoying themselves.
Good value for money and a great way to see the downtown. Strongly recommend it to families that want to try something different. The pubs we stopped at offered discounts as we were part of the tour.

We took this bicycle tour with a bunch of funny guys from Saint John, NB. We just happened to coincide pedaling. What a great time we had. We would wave at everyone and they would stay shocked starring at us drinking beer, cycling and yelling to the music. We would also stop the traffic because of how slow we were riding and everyone would look at us feeling the would like to be in our places. We had 2 stops at local bars too. This is not the kind of tour to learn about the history of the city, but it is extremely fun to do in a group. For those of you who are not familiar the vehicle is driven by a tour guide and the customers move it by cycling. There are also solar panels and an electric motor to help you on the hills

Steve and the guys at Ride Solar made our day in Charlottetown so fun. We were able to stop and take pictures and enjoy drinks and snacks. If you want a fun excursion, I recommend you do the Pedal Tour!
