Stop at Green Gables Heritage Place and the Green Gables House, a National Historic Site located in Cavendish. Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world visit this farmhouse, plus the Haunted Wood and Balsam Hollow Trail, as described in the book.

Finally, stop at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company to browse the selection of jams, marmalades and other items made with locally grown fruit.

Great Tour
, Nov 2019
My wife and I went on the Anne of Green Gables tour on October 1 while off our cruise ship for the day. Barely made it on time due the tendering of the ship. However, we did get there. And then waited an hour while the tour company waited for more people who were on the next tour so they could be combined. Very frustrating. However, the tour was excellent and the guide (a lady) was superior. However, while we stopped at multiple sites and we liked them all, the stop at Green Gables was not near long enough. There were long lines for the house so that took awhile. And it was lunch time and the food lines were horrendous with one meal being hand made at a time. There was no time for shopping and we barely made it to the bus.
Lots to see on Green Gables Shore Tour as well as Anne's house

An excellent commentary made this trip a great choice of tour. Enjoyed the Preserve Company as much as the house of Anne of Green Gables

Green Gables plus tour

Only 18 of us in a mid-sized bus, with an excellent driver/guide. The other stops including a lobster fishing harbour, were as interesting as the Green Gables House. For those of us form Europe the interior of the house was familiar rathe than different and surprising. A very enjoyable 4 hours and highly recommended.

Fantastic Tour, and very enjoyable tour guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable and everything was well planned and right on time. We were given just enough time at each stop. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for the good departure info that you emailed with our ticket. We were glad to find that 6 Prince St. was near the docks and was in the Visitor Centre, a nice big building with places to sit where people waited for the tour (and it was raining). The people at the ticket window found our names on their list and checked us in.The bus driver assured us which bus to take. All four of us enjoyed the trip through the countryside- interesting info from the tour guide- and found the house charming.

Our bus driver/tour guide, Cliff, was excellent. He has great driving skills, is very personable, and shared with us insights to local history and culture.

More time at Green Gables with fewer stops along the way would have improved our experience. John was very kind to my son, thank you.

Im sorry you feel this way. We are very proud of this tour and we get some great reviews about Rustico Fishing Village, Cavendish National Park, Green Gables House and the PEI Preserve Co. All of these stops are listed in our brochures and web site and are not surprise stops. I do hope you enjoyed your time on Prince Edward Island.
Not “Anne” of Green Gables tour

My daughter and I were expecting a tour of more sites of Anne of Green Gable‘s. This tour is not much about the books but about the island and it’s food and climate and local People. The tour guide John and bus driver Pierre were great and helped give us lots of info on the island. But for tourist coming to the island to spend more time at the historic sites of the author this would not be the right tour.
