Full-Day Highlights of Prince Edward County Private Tour

In 2014, Macleans magazine named the county among the Ten Places You Must See. The county became the only tourist destination in Canada, which was included in the list of Best Places to Travel in 2015 by Travel and Leisure Magazine. <br><br>In Prince Edward county, festivals are held year-round. This year, the famous Lavender Festival is cancelled, but we will visit magnificent lavender fields and you will marvel at many cultivars of lavender with a miriad of colours, scents and tastes.<br>​<br>During our one-day trip, we will taste wine at local wineries and try different varieties of cheese produced here. We will visit several art galleries and a sculpture garden. We will see the famous Lake on the Mountain (the Mohawk people call it Onokenoga, or Lake of the Gods) and the equally famous dunes, drive along the historic loyalist road and visit the picturesque towns of Bloomfield, Wellington and Picton.

It was wonderful to spend a few hours with Phil discovering an interesting variety of artisans, artists, cheese makers, brewers and County characters. Phil has a relaxed, quite vigilant style and is a wealth of information. He is open, warm and has a lovely sense of humour. I really appreciated his intelligent commentary and openness. Big thanks, Phil.

Phil took 6 of us on a wonderful half day tour of the County! We live in the County ( and had two couples visiting who have been here before) so it added a challenge to Phil planning his itinerary for us. We wanted the truly off the beaten path tour, and Phil delivered!!! We visited a wonderful, interesting ( off the beaten path) artist in his studio, saw snow volcanoes, held baby goats, picked up fresh eggs and honey, enjoyed cheese, chocolate and one wine stop. Travelled beautiful roads with Phil adding just the right amount of commentary. It was a thoughtful, well-planned excursion and we highly recommend Phil, who added depth and dimension for our guests while allowing us to relax and enjoy new experiences too. Thank you Phil!!!

Our guide Phil did a fantastic job of showing us around PEC. We came during a very slow time of year and he still managed to get us to 3 wineries and 1 brewery. He had suggestions of which to visit but was very accommodating when we requested a different spot or two. Phil is a great conversationalist, knows tons about the County, and by the end of our tour it felt like we had known him for ages. Absolutely would recommend booking any type of PEC tour with Phil!!

Phil was an awesome guide. He's a great guy, and easy to talk to. We were able to go see a ton of different areas of Prince Edward County (tasting wine & ciders, stopping by small shops to buy some local honey, mustards, and cheese, helping us scope out where we should go to the beach!)
