The tour itself was terrific. The tour guide was average at best but I am still happy we took the tour since it allowed us to see a great amount of the island in one day. The tour indicated we would be on a very comfortable motor coach. We were on a 10 passenger van with a very poor sound system. Since there were only 6 of us on the tour it was hard to complain about using a van, but the sound system was another story.
Doing what: Best of Prince Edward Island Tour
I am sorry to say, but a disappointing trip. The place itself was awesome, hotels chosen also very good, but, it was just not value for money, and almost all guests on the trip felt they were taken for a ride! First of all, it was NOT 5 days! the trip itself was just about two days, really! Also, because there were very few persons, instead of a large bus, we were taken around in a small van. Now this I would take as an advantage, as a small group, in a small van is always better. Problem was, the services of a Tour Director too were dispensed with, and we were `in the charge' of a driver. Now that again, would not really be a problem, but our problem was with the person driving, who was also designated `Tour Leader'. She was just not interested in anything, including her passengers, and more concerned about reaching everywhere in time for meals, rather than anything else ... She also seemed not to have much of a clue and was way off with timings, etc when it came to walks / excursions ... but, was rigid on timings herself, when it suited her. What could have been a fabulous tour was thus far less than that! And yes, as said, to call this a 5 day tour is totally misleading. In fact, the tour operator itself doesn't call this a 5 day tour! Merely organizing for hotel stays for 4 nights does NOT make this a 5 day tour of Prince Edward Trip - yes, the word (approximately) is very cleverly inserted in - but, you need to be more candid with your guests. I have used Viator often, in the past, first time I have returned with a feeling of disappointment, and worse, being let down.
