“Wonderful Tour and Educational Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The well informed guide ( female) showed us the 20 minute film re beginnoings of Confederation and then a thorough tour of this historic and significant opiece of Can adian history: PEI Government House.
The things we learned on this tour, which just included the two of us tourists , far exceeded any expectations I might have had for this afternoon visit on March 8, 2012.
We were both very impressed with the depth of detailed knowledge that the guide shared with us about the Island,the Government House and its artifacts and its ongoing useage by current elected officials. We highly recommend this visit - one would not be disappointed .

this tour is not expensive and was a great way to spend some time when the rain was pouring down. Lots of history and educational tour. Was only about 20 minutes.
