Capture photos of the island's finest attractions, like the Covehead Lighthouse

Meet the tour guide and the rest of the group at the new Charlottetown Visitor Information Centre. Take a brief tour of the city to see its important historical landmarks, like as St. Dunstan's Basilica, the Cathedral of the Diocese of Charlottetown, and Province House, where the Prince Edward Island Legislature has met since 1847.

Then make the 45-minute drive north to Green Gables Shore for a few hours of sightseeing. Along the way, from rolling farmlands to a windswept coastline, make stops for photo opportunities at lighthouses and the popular Cavendish Beach.

Green Gables Shore is a region on Prince Edward Island’s north coast that’s known for its stunning natural beauty — rolling hills, sandy beaches and sandstone cliffs. It’s also the place that inspired L.M. Montgomery’s classic 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables. 

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.

Enjoy lunch (own expense) at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company and browse their selection of jams, marmalades and other items made with locally grown fruit. Then travel to the town of New Glasgow for a stop at the Dunes Studio Gallery and Café, featuring an extensive collection of fine Canadian craftwork from over fifty artisans. Browse the fine woodworking products, plus gold and silver jewelry, textiles, stained and blown glass, candles, baskets, preserves, soaps, books and more.

Continue to two more coastal sites: the Covehead Harbor Lighthouse and historic oceanfront beach resort Dalvay by the Sea.

The tour ends with a return trip to Charlottetown.

Our driver was so knowledgeable and willing to take pictures of us at any location. We saw and learned a great deal. Where he took us for lunch was fantastic. We were never bored and it was a long tour. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and any age.

Guide was very knowledgeable but van left something to be desired. It did not cool enough for 90 degree heat. Too long at Ann of Green Gables, but everything else was fine.

4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

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.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2016

I do like bus tours and this was OK and the driver was very informative but it could have been better. The bus arrived late...no explanation. A couple of places we stopped at were a bit dubious. The garden where the lady brings all the stuff from Bali...what was the point in that? Yes it was a pretty garden but I want to see Pei not what this lady brings home from her holidays. The lunch stop at the Pei preserve leaves people with no choice but to eat there or not. We were in Rustico not 10 minutes before with several eating places suitable for all budgets. Why didn't we stop here? Not everyone wants a sit down meal at lunchtime that was pretty formal. I spent 20 on a small starter and dessert when all I wanted was a lobster roll or poutine for half the price in Rustico. I didn't bring a picnic like some guests but they had it in the garden of the restaurant but had to wait for a long time before the people like me in the restaurant finished eating. I bet the driver enjoyed his free lunch. You need to meet the needs of all guests with different budgets. There was a family of 6 in our group. If they had eaten in the preserve I'm sure their bill would have been at least 200 if they ordered mains. It's not fair to give only 1 choice when many were available. Just because the driver liked the place doesn't mean everyone can afford it.
