We were so delighted to have the option of taking our golden retriever along with us on this fun tour of the downtown core (about 25 minutes) and harbour front (about 30 minutes). This was a deal breaker for us as we couldn't leave her behind while travelling out of province. Our tour guide, Leah, was so delightful. She obviously... More

First you drive around Charlottetown and learn all kinds of neat facts about the city and PEI. Our very friendly interactive tour guide even gave some suggestions as to what restaurants to eat at which by the way was awesome. The hippo goes right into the water from land and again you learn lots of neat facts. Our tour guide... More

The tour on Hippo bus took us through most of the places of interest in City with a most informative courier who did not restrict comments to Charlottetown but mentioned useful information on Prince Edward Island

This was a very busy and popular tour. We had to get tickets for the tour taking place about 3 hours after we arrived. We got there early and the hippo was already full enough that our party of 7 couldn't all sit together, but even with that we all have a wonderful tour. The hippo took us through some... More

This starts with a tour through the downtown core while the entertaining tour guide gives a brief history of several local landmarks. Tour guide is very personable and comes around to talk to each person. Only complaint is that it could last a little longer!

We booked in the morning for the 3 o'clock tour. Our guide Chris was very good. We sat on the left side of the amphibian and in hindsight, I would have sat on the right side. Not a big difference, but when we were driving on land along the water, the right side was on the water side. In the... More

Booked a tour with them Sunday afternoon, had a great time! The tour guide (Chris) knows his stuff and likes to get the tourists involved. Kids (and I) absolutely loved it when the tour headed into the harbour. Well worth the money!

A lot of fun! Even though I grew up on the island, there were a lot of little known facts I didn't know which we learned on the tour. Great guide and captain and a lot of fun! I was surprised how far out in the harbor it goes!

Had a fantastic time! The young lady who was our tour guide was terrific!!!! The driver was great as well! Enjoyed the sites that they showed us....and gave us a good little tour of the downtown area. Not too long and not too short! Just perfect in our estimation!
