great tour guide

Had Leah as an excellent knowledgeable tour guide. She was entertaining as well as informative. Open air bus provides an excellent way to view the city.

Guide was knowledgeable about Charlottetown. Tour was the right length but felt a little let down when we were out in harbour. I thought we would have more history of the Charlottetown harbour.

We were on a cruise ship and hadn't booked an excursion for this stop. It is very easy to get off the ship and have a short walk right into town. There are sightseeing tours available all afternoon. It was great to see the town at our leisure and the HippopotaBus takes less than an hour to tour the scenic... More

This is a fun tour for young and old. It takes you around city streets to show you the highlights of Charlottetown. Then it takes to the water for a harbor tour. The tour lasts about an hour. Our guide , Mike, was fabulous with lots of information and humor to share. This is definitely a fun thing to do.

A great way to see the town and learn the history. Our courier was lively and well informed with an entertaining repertoire of corny jokes ( the old ones are still the best) The trip round the harbour was a bonus

We had such an enjoyable tour. Mike our guide was very fun and entertaining. He gave us lots of history about the city and the island itself. Added his own personal touch to the tour. Tom was our caption and did a awesome job both on land and sea. We learned about many different places which help us to plan... More

One of the highlights of our trip. We went with our daughter and son-in-law and had a blast. Our tour guide Mike and captain Tom are awesome

We took the Harbour Hippo land and sea tour. It is a great way to see the highlights of Charlottetown and the view of the harbour from the water. This helped us decide which areas we wanted to then explore in more detail later. The morning we took the tour was cloudy, windy with rain a threat at any moment,... More

The Charlottetown, PEI Harbour Hippo water bus is just about the most fun you can have in the water and not get wet; the niftiest views of the highlights of the downtown old city so you can plan your leisurely city walk about. I've ridden the Harbour Hippo and the Hippopotabuso and both are excellent entertainment and great fun..pick one... More
