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.

This tour was EXCELLENT! We booked it separately from our Holland America cruise line and I'm so glad we did. This tour takes you by the cutest preserve company where you MUST take the 20 minutes to purchase some of the black current jam and sample their salsas as well. It also has these beautiful trails through the Garden's of Hope that is great for picture taking and very romantic. You get about an hour at the Green Gables location which goes by very quickly and can tend to be crowded so I would recommend heading straight for the house tour and then lover's lane. The gift shop is spendy and you can buy lots of the same things in the Charlottetown tourist stores for less expensive. Our tour guide knew everything about the economy and the types of animals and much more about PEI. Ask lots of questions! He also took us to a great lookout point over the ocean which is another beautiful place for pictures. It was an unforgettable opportunity to see almost the whole island in just over 3 hours on an air conditioned comfortable van. This tour is a must! We really enjoyed it.

Roddy was a wonderful driver guide because he knew this area and history very well just like a history teacher. Especially, I loved his voice tone when he explained the things because it is clear, comfortable, and calm. I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks!
