We had a great experience on my birthday in August. The tour guide and booth attendant were great sports. They sang me happy birthday and were very welcoming. We really enjoyed ourselves!

We went on the tour bus today and it was absolutely wonderful. The tour guide was a local woman who really knew the city. We came across a fox which was on someones lawn and she was able to tell us all about the foxes and skunks and how they got to P.E.I. She was a great guide and made... More

Tour guide was awful. She was very uninteresting. The tour itself was mostly around the residential areas of Charlottetown and glossed over major attractions and historical places. As bus tours go, this was the worst I've ever been on. Hope it gets better.

My 3 and 6 year old were so excited to go on the Hippopotabus only to arrive for the tour and find that they weren't sure if they were going to run because there were not enough people. I was told to wait to see if anyone would show up but 20 minutes later the bus pulled away and we... More

Went in the tour to explore this area. We had a good time and learned about the city. Tour was educational and Brandon knew and was proud to show off his city. As far as the water part, we basically just did a loop around the bay. It would be been great to get closer and see more. Especially for... More

Personally felt it was on the pricey side for a tour of the city. I was expecting more water time than just a loop out in the bay and back. Had I known that, I wouldn't have paid this rate. Nice staff though

This was a fun tour of Charlottetown and the harbour. The guide was entertaining, and mostly accurate as far as I know. The boat/bus was comfortable on land and sea.

If you're visiting from away this is a great way to see the waterfront and the city. if you have small kids make sure to hang on to them when you're going into the water cause it can be scary if they don't know whats goin on

Had a lot of fun on the ride around town, learned quite a bit of the history of PEI, its notable citizens and the historic buildings. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable with the right amount of wit and humor to keep everyone interested and involved.

"Its a waste of money" said my eight year old. This "tour" of Charlottetown included random commentary on restaurants or other shops we passed by, including the Superstore, and both limited and patently false historic commentary. Our guide seemed to think he was putting on a theatrical performance which only served to grate on our nerves. At a family cost... More
