I was with a tour group led by Bill Dobbin. He gave us a great walking tour with a lot of history and we stopped at many places with good things to sample. The mussels and oysters were great and all the venues had interesting things to share

Morning tour of a few downtown eateries and attractions. Our guide - Bill Dobbin - was very knowlegeable, funny with full of local lore. Tour takes approximately 3 hours and covers a sampling of restaurants, bars, "cooking oil tastings" and local made treats. Well worth doing on one of the first days in the city. Quickly gets you oriented to... More

I typically reserve all 5 stars for something very special and above and beyond my expectations. This tour definitely checked all the boxes. My husband and I were met at the location by our friendly tour guide, Paul. From there we got an amazing history lesson and scrumptious tastes along the way. Prior to booking this tour I read several... More

Thanks very much for your glowing review. Paul is delighted you found his tour to be 5 stars. We always tell our guests it's a "tasting" tour so they're not expecting a full meal by the end but we're very pleased you found the sampling sizes were perfect and filling. We strive to have a good blend of food and... More

Having lived in Charlottetown for over 33 years, our tour guide Gord, was a font of info about the goings on, in and around this lovely little city.

The tour itself was enjoyable, with stops at a couple of local haunts and watering holes, plus a nice visit to the olive oil/balsamic vinegar bar. However, easily the best part of the tour was our guide, Paul. Very knowledgeable, passionate and humourous. Doing his own research and offering relevant anecdotes further enhanced the experience. Thanks, Paul!

We have been in a number of food tours around the world, and this one didn't live up to expectations. Overall tour was a good mix of food and local history, and had quite an interesting mix of people participating.
