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!
