My friend and i went on the Harbour Hippo. Mike was our emcee and Michael was the captain. WE had booked our Harbour tour the night before. There weren't enough people to go, so we were told to come back the next day!!! We got a free tour. The tour of Charlottetown was fantastic and the water part was fun!!... More

We were on a cruise through Canada and pulled into Charlottetown on a rainy day. As we walked out of the terminal, we saw the Hippo Hopper vehicle parked and decided to inquire about it. At the kiosk, a young man told us about the tour and we decided to go for it, especially since it was raining. About 45... More

I always love doing a city tour, and this one was fun. We took our 3 year old daughter, and she loved waving to all of the people on the streets. Informative and interesting. I would have rathered longer on shore and less time in the water (it was a little boring out there) But still I love it.

We went on this tour for the "fun" of it and actually came away learning quite about from our guide Brandon. He is a great in relating facts without sounding like doing it by rote. Both he and the driver Mike made a point of interacting with every guest on the ride which I found remarkable. It was a hot... More

It was great seeing the city of Charlottetown from shore to sea. We travelled through the city core on a huge lark learning history and info about Charlottetown, then plunged into the harbour to see the city from that perspective. Lovely trip lasting about an hour. The friendly driver, Mike, manouvered his way through city and water with ease and... More

We started planning in February for our great Charlottetown adventure with our daughter and our three grandchildren. To begin, we booked tickets to Anne of Green Gables. Next, we contacted Tourism PEI, for advice on an activity to participate in while in Charlottetown, and they recommended this attraction. We called Harbour Hippo about 2 weeks in advance, and were told... More

Fun way to tour Charlottetown on a hot day. Open amphibian bus and boat tour. Fun and educational. See a vibrant city from two angles. On land and from the water. Well worth the price.

My children and I took the Hippo Harbour cruise in Charlottetown and had a good time. It was less engaging than the Halifax version of the same tour, but still fun. It is a great way to get a quick tour of the historical sights. It is a bit costly - I think it was $70 something for one adult... More

I think this tour must really depend on the guide you get because I really wanted to like it and have enjoyed this type tour other places but our experience was not what the others write about. There just was not anything to see that we had not walked to in our own exploring. I want to be kind, but... More
