My wife & I went on the tour with Bill Dobbin on a beautiful August morning. Bill is an extremely knowledgeable and informative person. The spots to visit were excellent and covered the full range from seafood to beer. I don't understand why this "thing to do" is not rated higher.

My wife and I did this tour as part of our cruise. This was by far the best shore excursion we had. We got to try a nice selection of local seafood and visit local shops. As we walked to each location we got to learn a little about the history of PEI and role in the confederation of Canada.

My family took this tour with Paul and had a great time. Paul provided very interesting historical commentary on the walk and made a point to learn everyone's name. We had a diverse group ranging in age from 29 to 84 years. I was worried the walking might be too much, but there were lots of stops and many places... More

Not only do you get to taste a variety of food but we enjoyed getting to know Heather, our tour guide, and our fellow tour go-ers. Oysters, mussels, lobsters, blueberry ale, caramel popcorn, jelly and more! Well worth the trip. Read up a bit on the history of the island and make your questions more pointed!

4 of us from NB had a most enjoyable 3-hour culinary walk in Charlottetown PEI on Thursday. Paul was an A-1 host, a story teller, very knowledgeable and entertaining, and took us to shops and eateries that we would never have seen in our short visit to Charlottetown. We learned much of the history of the Island and tasted foods... More

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
