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

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
