New for 2018 - An amazing food & beverage tasting tour with some iconic scenery!


See and taste Canada's Food Island. PEI has ideal conditions for growing a wide variety of agricultural and seafood products. On this tour, you will visit a cheese factory to sample gouda cheeses and taste their amazing pizza. Only a few miles away is the North Shore, where PEI mussels and Malpeque oysters are grown and harvested. At a fishing harbour we talk lobster and the fishery. A must stop is the PEI National Park, for some iconic views of our famous beaches & red cliffs!
Back to the tasting we sweeten it up at the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company; jams and other preserves made right on site.
Taste the newest versions of mead at the Island Honey Wine Company, opened in 2017. Next, lift some spirits at the Deep Roots Distillery with products made with their own certified organic apples. Upon our return to Charlottetown, it's brew time, with samples at both Up Street Craft Brewing and the PEI Brewing Company. Food, beverage and this beautiful Island. Does it sound perfect for you?

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: For cruise ship passengers, I will meet you inside the Charlottetown Seaport Cruise ship terminal. For guests arriving by cruise ship, look for me inside the Charlottetown Seaport terminal. Once inside, head to the far end of the building. I will be near the coffee shop with a sign displaying your name.

For my non-cruise guests, I can meet you at the location of your choice, such as your hotel. Please provide the property name and street or road.

End location: I will return you to the same location where we met. You may request a different drop point. A note to cruise ship passengers choosing to be dropped at an alternate location: you are solely responsible for ensuring you return to your ship on time for departure.
