Really liked PEI as cruise ship port! Charlottetown is charming. We had a morning to explore the town then took tour into country. This tour took us to Rustico, the National Park and to the site of Anne of Green Gables House. We stopped at a garden and preserve maker on way back. The guide Pierre was knowledgeable and the tour allowed us to see the countryside as well as city. We want to return to PEI!

This was a wonderful tour. We enjoyed seeing not only the Anne of Green Gables home but many other things along the way. I only wished we would have had more time at each stop. It was great and our guide was very nice and knowledgeable.

We really enjoyed our Green Gables tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging. We had ample time to visit our stops and enjoy the flavor and history of the area. Anyone familiar with the Anne of Green Gables series would appreciate the beauty and understand even more the author, Lucy Maud Montgomery's, love of this beautiful area in which she grew up.

Our trip to Green Gables was excellent! Our tour guide was the best and informed us about all kinds of things about PEI. We all had a great time with Pierre as our tour guide. We learned about lobster fishing, how mussels are raised, where the best lobster meal was, and a whole lot more. The Green Gables setting was lovely and the house close to what I thought was in Lucy Maud Montgomery's book. A great gift shop too. While we were waiting for everyone to board our bus, Pierre played the accordian and I got to dance a jig to it. What fun!

Our tour guide/driver was great. He not only told us what we were seeing but provided wonderful insight of the area. He was very knowledgeable and shared personal experiences along the way. The trip included much more than the Green Gables site. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see this beautiful area of P.E.I.

Make sure you read the book and then take this tour. You get a real feel for Anne and her story. Even rent the movie.

We loved the tour. Clif was a great guide and kept us entertained throughout the trip.
Our only suggestion is better instructions on finding the tour. Not sure how we were supposed to know that Grey Line would handle the reservation.
