As a native Prince Edward Islander, I can't wait to start each day showing others "from away" the features that make our island so quaint and unique.
From the tiny fishing villages to historic downtown Charlottetown; from the sandy beaches of the national and provincial parks to the hidden coves in the rural settings; from the fishing boats of actual lobster fishermen to the fields of local farmers; I can create tours for every interest.
My background is varied. I started work on my father's lobster boat, owned and operated a landscaping company, worked as a concrete finisher on high rise buildings (not on PEI), and had my own fishing fleet back in PEI fishing crab, lobster, and tuna. After selling my fleet, I worked as a carpenter in Alberta but couldn't resist the draw of PEI once again. After coming back home, I worked as a foreman for a fencing company, then started to drive a taxi part time where I discovered the opportunity to show others of my love for the island through tours.
I offer a variety of standard tours around Prince Edward Island, along with custom tours designed to meet your interests. My tours are limited to 6 guests, but if given notice, I can make other arrangements for larger groups.
Some quotes from previous clients
"This guy was a riot! HE knows everything about PEI, drove extremely safe, had us laughing all the time, and kept talking with interesting bits of information about the island and the entire region. "
"From the moment we began our tour, we laughed and took in every site recommended, by Cyril. This day was so loved by each of my children (16, 14, 11, & 8). With previous experiences, I rated Cyril among the best of guides. He brings his love and heritage to life, at any age, for any amount of time you choose. Believe me, if you are visiting PEI, he should be your first call. "
"My partner and I needed to take a cab to the Halifax airport from Charlottetown, PEI, and Cyril managed to transform what should have been a long, boring, and simple cab ride, into one of the most positive and memorable moments of our trip. He is by far the most passionate, captivating, and entertaining person that I have had the pleasure of meeting. "
My slogan "You're in for a ride", is meant to convey my passion for giving tours, sharing my love of PEI through story telling and having fun while doing so. I look forward to meeting you for your private tour of our "gentle island".
A Recent Review of this guide
Cyril was entertaining! We had fun getting to know him personally in addition to Prince Edward Island. His love for the island only added to the value of the tour. He snuck in lots of extras that were interesting. We didn't have as much time at the Anne of Green Gables sites as we would have liked due to time but the extras more than made up for it. Our favorites were watching the oyster fishing and the great ocean views. His storytelling made the time fly. We would highly recommend booking with him.
