Our tour guide was precious. His name escapes me now, retired school teacher. Very knowledgeable and funny. Visited mid-October. Slow season. So he really took his time with us and even took us to use the libraries facilities after our tour was over. Peak Island was adorable

I brought a group of 14 ladies to Peaks Island for the golf cart trip of the island. Each one had an absolutely wonderful time -- and each of the three guides received positive recommendations.

To me the most exciting part of this tour was the boat ride to the island. Once we got to the island there was very little to see in my opinion. There are homes all along the shoreline and it was difficult to see beyond them. I was expecting more views from the island.

My wife and I did the 75 minute narrated golf cart tour of the island. Kim was our narrator and do an outstanding job. Being a long time local resident, she was very knowledgeable and informative guide. You are able to rent golf carts yourself but since we were only looking to spend a few hours on the island, this...

This was our first time on Peaks Island. Pete, from Peaks Island Tours, did an excellent job showing us around the island and teaching us the history. We had a fun and relaxing day of it.
