I was left with a highly favorable impression of PEI because of the graciousness of the people, exemplified by tour guide and the individuals he introduced us to who owned and/or operated the food establishments we visited. The background information and history provided enhanced the experience of tasting the various food samples on the walk (see submitted photos). After three... More

This culinary walking tour of Charlottetown was terrific. Our guide was well informed and fun. The stops were varied, food and drink interesting and very good. We really enjoyed this delightful city and spent time after the tour walking around and shopping. I usually don't care for mussels but now that I've had PEI mussels and know the difference I...

We're glad to hear you had a fun time on our Taste the Town tour....and delighted to hear you have now become a "mussel convert". You're unlikely to find better mussels anywhere than those we produce here so you'll have to ask for Island Blue Mussels at your favourite seafood restaurant or market at home. Also glad to hear you... More

If you want to" sample" the foods of the Island this is the tour for you. When traveling we want to experience what the locals do. This was the perfect way to do it!

This tour was offered through our cruise ship and I say shame on them!! It should not be called a culinary tour, instead a historic/walking one and even then, the information did not seem to be very interesting. There was very little food offered on a "food tour" we were given 1 oyster each, 2 small bites of a lobster... More

We're very sorry to hear you were disappointed with our Taste the Town tour. Unfortunately, we can't control how the cruise ship markets our tour. We certainly make it clear to all passengers taking the tour, it is a "tasting tour." We tell them they're not going to be full and they're not going to be drunk at the end... More

Although the tour has some interesting stops and some good food samples in some of the local businesses.... I would never recommend this tour! Our guide was Bill. Bill rambles on with needless information. He takes so long to get to the point, you can't focus long enough to hear his actual point! Boring, drug on for 3 hours, and... More

We're terribly disappointed you felt our tour guide, Bill was rambling and boring. As you can see from past reviews other people who took his tour found him extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Prince Edward Island. I'm also sorry to hear you developed a throat inspection however it is unlikely you got it from the lobster pound which is not... More

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'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
