We took this tour on our first day in Charlottetown. It was a good introduction to that city, and we ended up returning to several of the restaurants that we visited. We sampled raw oysters (a little difficult at 9 a.m., but they sure were fresh!), lobster tacos, mussels, olive oil, potato vodka, locally-brewed beer, and AMAZING hand-cut fries. It... More

We just stayed on PEI for 2 weeks and loved it. The food is great, lobster to die for. Clams, mussels, scallops. Just eat, eat, eat. Cows ice cream is great, do try the salted caramel. The list goes on ...Anne of Green Gable chocolate, PEI preserves, ( great but expensive). There are potatoes everywhere and they make the most... More

We're really pleased you enjoyed our great Island seafood and our Taste the Town tour. We would just like to point out that Experience PEI doesn't offer the lobster potato chips as part of our tour nor are we the company that makes the chips. We would never suggest someone has no taste buds just because they don't like something. More

A pleasurable morning! Richard was thoughtful, humorous, and helpful. He shared history of Charlottetown as well as of the places we visited. I recommend this experience to anyone who has only a day or so to spend, as it gives a good overview of an interesting city.

Not to be missed! Even though it rained for the whole tour we had a fantastic time. Bill our tour guide provided us with a large umbrella and the time you were outside was only a short time. My husband has mobility problems but the walk in between stops was short and there were places to sit. Some stairs but... More

We really enjoyed our tour with Bill, who was very knowledgeable about the city and the history. One of the aspects I enjoyed the most was the relationships he seemed to have with the restaurants and shops we visited, and the opportunity we had to hear from the chefs and employees themselves. That isn't something I've seen much of on... More

Thanks very much for your positive review. We agree....Bill is a great tour guide with lots of local knowledge to share and we're really pleased you enjoyed meeting our food providers. You're absolutely right....it's a tasting tour. People aren't going to be full or drunk at the end of it because it's designed to give visitors a sampling of the... More

This walking tour of Charlottetown takes you to several locations where you sample local food and enjoy a guided tour of the city's historical sites. It is a three-hour tour where you sample various foods . We sampled oysters, muscles, seafood chowder, and sampled several different olive oils. All in all a most enjoyable and educational experience

We LOVED the tour. Our tour guide Betty was absolutely amazing. She really knows her history. It was beautiful to get out and learn all the interesting things about Charlottetown. They involve you so much. It's well worth the money and it is something that you NEED to do while in Charlottetown. We would defiantly recommend it to anyone.

Betty provided an great experience! She blended just enough information about the history of the town and its significance, and important historical buildings with enjoyable visits to food venues across the town. My wife and I were the only ones on this particular tour, and Betty treated us like we were royalty. She gave us ample time at all the... More

We went on tour October 10th with Bill. He did wonderful job giving us insight into the history, answered many questions about the area. Also led us through the streets to try out quite a variety of foods! We learned about the fishing industry as we tasted oysters, later mussels. The local treats of chocolate covered potato chips, the ice... More

We're pleased you enjoyed our Taste the Town Tour. We'll pass along your suggestion about having some bread available for the olive oil/balsamic vinegar tasting. They have had bread there in the past and may just not had it available that day. You're right about the poffertjes mini-Dutch pancakes...they're amazing! More
