Phil took my fiancé and I out on a great tour of Prince Edward County to visit many beautiful sights, a cider brewery and a winery. He shared many great facts and tips about the areas we visited and is an excellent conversationalist. I didn’t know what to expect when being taken out on a private tour, but Phil made it very comfortable. It felt more like having a friend to tour around with instead of a stranger.

Phil secretly new that my now fiancé was going to propose later that day, and continually asked if we wanted photos taken so that we now have great photos to remember our special day. It also helped that he is a photographer, so all the pictures turned out great! I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking to explore Prince Edward County.

Leah and Tal, I checked out your social media later and saw the photo of the proposal!!! I was thrilled to be a part of the secret right from the start as were all of the staff at The Drake Devonshire. A day for us all to remember...including baby goats chewing the precious long hair of a professional model LOL. Hope to see you again in The County.

My sister and I booked a trip to check out the sights in Prince Edward County...Phil was a fantastic guide! Quite knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. We had a fantastic trip with him. Be sure to ask him to swing by the petting zoo! :)

Thanks for the review Adriane and Ginette. I think the final ranking for your favourites: 1. Artist Aidan Haley's stories, 2. Baby goats chewing our hair, and 3. Waupoos Estates' Pink Rabbit wine :)

We had a lovely day touring Amherst Island looking for different birds of prey - including Snowy Owls! Phil was very knowledgable about local wildlife and the day was very well organized. Great way to do a bird-watching trip for anyone's first time!

I would highly recommend booking Phil for a tour of PEC or for a winery tour. We really enjoyed our afternoon tour of different wineries in the area. Phil is very friendly, personable and was very flexible with our tour to ensure that we had a great time. Thank you for taking us around! We will be back for another tour in the future!

Phil was an awesome tour guide. He took my girlfriend and I around to a bunch of different wineries for her birthday. We had a wonderful time thanks to Phil. He was helpful, interesting, and totally flexible with our plan. He went the extra mile to ensure that we had a great time and saw all that we wanted to see. Book with Phil for an awesome time in PEC!

Cheers Phil, thank you again!

Josh and Emily, I had such a fun tour with you both and tried a new winery, The Old Third, thanks to your own County connection! Good luck with everything until we meet again over a Hinterland sparkling rosé :)

Highly recommend booking Phil for a tour of PEC! He is incredibly friendly and personable, and easy to talk to. He was happy to meet our needs and tour expectations, while adding in spots we would not have known of. It was a lovely day!
