We really enjoyed eating Cow's ice cream on our holiday to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It deserves the long queues which form at its outlets! We took advantage of the tour of the factory. As it happened we were too late to see ice cream being made. I rather enjoyed the detailed descriptions of the process and information... More

We were looking forward to the tour of the ice cream factory. We unfortunately only managed to join one of the last tours of the day, so, T-shirt printing was still on, but no ice cream production :( Although short, the guide was informative and not too pushy on selling their stuff. It would have been nice to try a... More

First night here we wandered into the store on the wharf and fell in love with the tee shirts. As a pun-filled family, we were very tickled with the clever spin. Then the ice cream. As Bostonians, big ice cream fans, and this was comparable with some of the best we've tried at home. HAD to go to the Creamery... More

The cows factory tour is fun & a great price! $10 for two adults. We got to learn lots of cool information and we had a great tour guide. The samples were amazing (cheese, chocolate covered potato chips, and of course ice cream). Tip: make sure to go during the week if you want to see the action. We we're... More

We were in PEI for a cruise stop and rented a car to tour around. The kids were excited about this tour. As other posters have said, it isn't much of a factory, just one room with a couple of ice cream machines and another with a printer for tshirts. But we enjoyed it, and my daughter got chosen to...

It isn't expensive, but there's also nothing to see. A video, a hallway where you get to see where they make the tshirts and icecream...if you're lucky. A sample of their icecream and cheese. Just eat the icecream...don't bother with the tour.

Though I adore Cows ice cream, logo, and company history, I wasn't a huge fan of the tour. It was "ok," but really just a hallway where you look through windows and watch videos of how the ice cream and cheese are made. Afterward they take you in a side room and give you a little sample of one of... More

We got to the store and had about 20 minutes until the next tour so grabbed an ice cream- I had to ask for a sample because I wasn't sure how strong the english toffee would be in the flavour I got but the ice cream was great and had fun looking around the store at all the different parody... More

The trip to Cows Creamery is a waste. I thought, we would be taken around the factory to show how ice creams are made, instead, we were shown videos which we can anyways see on you tube etc. I would not recommend anyone doing a factory tour. The ice creams flavors/ tastes are also as usual nothing different or unique.... More

Even though you pay to visit a creamery, once the tour begins all you see of the creamery is a small kitchen through a window. You are told for hygiene and secret recipe purposes, thats the closest youll get to the actual ice cream factory. The tour basically proceeds in stating the obvious about making ice cream, then goes on... More
