It was a decent historical tour but not that exciting.

Was supposed to be a hop on-hop off tour but because the driver was so quick, getting around the city that it was difficult to determine when we could get off the bus and also, hard to appreciate what was being viewed. Tour guide was rather dry, not very lively or enticing. Did not have any opportunity to ask questions.... Read Less

Charlettetown is a wonderful little place, we walked around a lot here, stopping in at Beaconsfield house for a tour and enjoying a coastal walk. In the afternoon we took the cruiseship organised tour to Victoria by the Sea and Confederation Bridge. It was quite a long drive out there, but the tour guide was a local and provided really interesting commentary along with photo albums to show the different seasons, its hard to imagine the snowfall on a clear day. There is a lighthouse near the Confederation Bridge that you stop at for photos. Victoria by the Sea itself is not much, nothing was open, so was just a quick hop out the bus take a couple of photos and hop back on. You do get dropped off at a place for shopping, not that we did any, and they give out some free chips. We didn't mind the break from the driving. Read Less

Charlottetown was the best stop of the whole cruise. However, having said that, this tour was an awful lot of driving and not much seeing. It was the only tour that included the Federation Bridge. The stop at Anne of Green Gables was too rushed; you could see the house OR see the shop. I took the boxed lunch on the bus as there was no time to sit and eat. The boxed lunch was better than the lunch at the Bay of Fundy. I didn't see the point of stopping at North Rustico. The preserve factory had to be an exercise in cruise bonus. There was no point to the stop other than the bus drivers had a draw for a free monthly dinner from the shop and they were friends with the owner, who was having problems staying in business and relied on the added tourists.

Six passenger with driver mini van. We had six and it was a little cramped but manageable. Wonda was great. We rotated seats to give everyone some relief. When sitting in the back, it was hard to hear Wonda. I have a hearing imparment so it was not his fault. Other tour operators use an amplification system. We saw all of the sights we wanted to see and the tour ran over the 5 hour time frame but he did not charge extra. $300 CAD total for a 5+ hour tour for 6 people. It was a good value Read Less
