Kevin is an excellent guide. It made us fall in love with PEI as much as he does. He customized his tour to meet our needs, and he went out of his way to take us to spots that are not ordinarily seen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rae . Loved having your group out on tour.
Richard LechtnerUnited States

Karen SeggermanUnited States
Kevin was knowledgeable about PEI and showed us some great sites. He was very friendly and answered our many questions. Vehicle was okay. Only problem, picked us up 30 minutes late because he didn't double-check our meeting location and went to the cruise ship instead of our hotel...so we started a bit disgruntled.
Jeanette PickrellUnited States
I loved the personal tour and felt we were able to see more of the town. I will definitely use tours by locals it was a great experience.
William RussellUnited States

Jeanne MottUnited States
A group of five women in their late 70's took this tour with Kevin directing. When the group returned we talked about this tour. It was a most informative and enjoyable day. The pace and agenda were flexible. Kevin accommodated their requests and paced the tour accordingly. Being a local he brought the women right into the culture of the island. His enthusiasm was infectious. This is a 5-star tour and I would highly recommend it to those who seriously want to take in the history of this destination.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeanne . The ladies were a pleasure to have on tour. I enjoyed my time showing them around.
Kevin was great! The weather wasn't great the day of our tour and Kevin was able to customize the tour for our group so we could make the best of the chilly day. Thanks again for a great tour!
Curtis CooperUnited States
Kevin was waiting for us when we arrived and was receptive to slight modifications to his list of items we were to visit. He was extremely knowledgable and entertaining and gave our group a great background of the area. Being in a small group (there were 6 of us) was the way to see the area and get to places the buses couldn't.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Curtis . I enjoy meeting new people and showing them around our island . It was very nice to meet you .
Susan LewickiUnited States
Kevin was informative, engaging and prompt. We loved this tour. We saw so many things in a short amount of time, which is just what we wanted, as it was the first time we had been in Charlottetown. We both fell in love with the island.
Carol EdmonstonUnited States
Kevin was a wonderful guide! I highly recommend him. He has a great personality, filled with lots of interesting information and took us to a great local restaurant that served the best fish chowder.
Sharon KavanaughUnited States
This was our favorite tour! PEI is absolutely gorgeous. Every piece of land was perfectly trimmed and beautiful. We had our first taste of mussels and they were delicious!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much it was a fun day .

James CraddockUnited States
Kevin was a great guide. Very knowledgeable about Prince Edward Island. Easy to tell that he is proud of his home province. Very patient and took us wherever we wanted to go. Felt like we had seen about as much as we could have in our 4 hour trip. Van was clean and neat.

What a great tour of Prince Edward Island! Kevin was pleasant and knowledgeable, and the tour was thorough, interesting, and comfortable. He stopped several times so we could take pictures, and he chose a great place for our delicious lunch. My husband and I highly recommend Kevin and this tour.
James JankeUnited States
Kevin was great. He is a true local having lived on PEI for his entire life. He had much insider information to share. He customized his tour to fit our requirements and gave us all the time we needed at each site. We could not be happier with our guide. PEI itself was a bit disappointing, with little to see, but that is not something within control of the guide.
Charles (Dick) ChaneyNashville, TN, United States
Kevin had a Knowledge for the Island but failed to show us all we requested. Very nice person.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Charles I am sorry you did not enjoy your tour of Prince Edward Island. I did the tour as stated in the itinerary . I do not recall any special requests during the tour and there was none at time of booking. As you can see from previous reviews I am very flexible and willing to change tour to suit the traveller . Again I am sorry if I over looked any requests made during the your tour.
John ConnollyUnited States
Kevin was a perfect guide for us. He's highly knowledgeable about PEI, and has a nice personality. He does not feel the need to talk constantly, and let us choose where and when to leave the car and do some walking. We highly recommend Kevin! He's very easy to be with.
John SullivanUnited States
Kevin was GREAT !! He met us right on time and provided a very informative tour of the north shore of PEI. We stopped for pictures, shopping, a spice shop, etc. He had a nice vehicle and was professional and courteous the entire time. He also gave us a great recommendation on where to go for lunch. We were very, very pleased with our day in PEI, as you will be also with Kevin. This was our first use of toursbylocals.com. The first of many more times to come. Thank you !!
Ricky PerryUnited States
Excellent Tour, Excellent Guide, Enjoyed very much. Not only saw the sites,but were also given history of island and showed us and explained many of the fishing details of island. Highly recommend. Thanks Kevin A+++++++ The Perrys
Anthony GoodeUnited States
Our day with Kevin was awesome. He answered all our questions. Added some humor to his comments. We started on the coast and visited Dalvey Inn. He explained the fishing industry & took us to a little village. Do you know how long it takes for a lobster to mature? Do you know the value of a blue tuna? Kevin stopped for pictures along the coast & each time he escorted us to the most picturesque place. He was quite a gentleman in opening doors for the ladies. He took us to Ann of Green Gables house. GREAT
Jeffrey Greenbergflorham park, NJ, United States
Great tour and great tour guide
Leslie MarinerUnited States
Kevin went above and beyond to make our tour enjoyable for my mom who is unable to walk without accommodation. Got us right up close whenever possible. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Wonderful tour around PEI - Made it our new favorite place!! So lovely. Also found us a great little local restaurant for lunch. We can't wait to come back thanks to Kevin's introduction to PEI. Highly recommend.
Delighted with out our tour. Kevin was a very experienced guide and quite flexible. We got a great feel for the island.
Lynda KingUnited States
Kevin was a most gracious host and we immensely enjoyed the areas of the island he highlighted for us. Especially educational was the "hands on" information provided re: the lobster traps as well as the seafood industry as a whole. Thanks, Kevin, for dropping us off at your favorite pub!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lynda I am glad you enjoyed the tour and I hoped you enjoyed the pub. Kevin
Susan GravesUnited States
Kevin was a WONDERFUL, flexible, knowledgeable guide on Prince Edward Island in our "Everything Anne" tour! He met us at our cruise ship...and listened as we tweaked our day's plans to include watching the "Anne & Gilbert Musical"! His 6 passenger van was air conditioned, clean and offered a comfortable ride as we enjoyed PEI! Thank you, Kevin, for our interesting, easy and fun-filled stop in Charlottetown, PEI. The red soil and beautiful shores were something special to see...Great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Susan it was a pleasure to take you and yr family on tour . I really hope all of you come back to see more of our island soon.
Deborah B.United States
Kevin was a WONDERFUL guide! We saw everything that was planned; we were not rushed, and we FELL IN LOVE with Prince Edward Island! Kevin told us a LOT about the how people make a living on PEI and we saw the beauty of the north shower and beaches and Dalvay-by-the Sea, how mussels and oysters are grown, how lobsters are trapped, historical buildings, Anne of Green Gables, and the Confederation Bridge & park nearby. It was an OUTSTANDING tour - the best one of our one week visit to Canada!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank so much it was my pleasure to show you around the island.
Judy WrightUnited States
We had to ask a lot of questions to get the info.

Raymond AndronacoUnited States
Kevin is a very friendly and accommodating guide. He has a comfortable van which helps a lot. We learned about the fishing industry in PEI and about mussel and oyster farming. We saw several sites missed by the large tour groups and about the history of the region. The island is beautiful and rich in history and Kevin did a good job. I am sure you will be pleased.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ray and Diane it was a pleasure having you out on tour .
Kevin is a great guide. Professional driver and very knowledgeable about island.
Larry KayeRockville, MD, United States
Kevin was an excellent guide. We had a wonderful time touring Prince Edward Island with him. He knew wonderful places to go and many interesting stories about places on PEI. We had to restructure our tour a bit midway and he was very flexible. Highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Larry I am so glad you enjoyed the tour of our island .
Susan McClungUnited States
The tour supplied by Kevin exceeded my expectations. I believe the others on the tour were also extremely pleased. From when we met at the cruise pier to drop off, the experience was totally positive. Kevin is very personable yet professional. His explanations of the mussel farms, lobster fishing,, natural and human history of the island, geology, life on PEI, etc were great. In a few hours, thanks to Kevin, we got an excellent sampling of PEI. I recommend him to you with no hesitation
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan . You and your group were a pleasure to have on tour. I'm glad we were able to track the geo in North Rustico for you.
Donna KorygaUnited States
Excellent guide, friendly and informative
Darrel NolandUnited States
This was an excellent tour of PEI. Kevin is a very good guide and was so informative. We were a group of 6 and peppered him with questions the whole time. He answered them all cheerfully and thoroughly. With his microphone we were able to all hear quite well. The places he showed us were quite interesting. We were all delighted with our time on the tour.
Lou EmmertUnited States

We took the tour of Charlottetown with Kevin yesterday and really enjoyed it. Kevin shared a wealth of information with us and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend him and rate him a five out of five.
Judith BashamUnited States
Kevin gave us a most pleasant cross island trip that included all of our priority spots. He was very informative and delightful to be with. He was also very flexible. We (a group of six) all agree on our rating. We opted for lunch instead of the Bridge. The lunch place was a lot of fun, so a very good choice for our group. I am sure the Bridge would have been a wonder. Loved PEI...Judy, Northern Virginia
Patti ThorsonUnited States
Sharon SouzaUnited States
We had a great tour with Kevin. He was very knowledgeable and took us everywhere we wanted to go and then some. It was a fun day.
Margot PipkinUnited States
Kevin loves PEI and it shows. He knows so much about his beloved island, be it about the mussel industry, the school system, or the fox versus coyote populations. Through intermittent rain showers, he drove us to some of the most beautiful and interesting places on the island, all the time filling us in on the history and politics of the various areas. We came away loving PEI, too.
Kevin was very knowledgeble, friendly and helpful. He was on time, flexible and modified the tour to make sure the best features were visited within the time available.
Kevin gave us an outstanding tour. He was very knowledgeable in the history of Prince Edward Island and took us to great places. We also saw Anne of Green Gables museum. Throughout the tour we never felt rushed. 5 out of 5. Highly recommend.
Wesley KeigwinUnited States
Donald WileyUnited States
Kevin is the "gentleman and scholar" we were looking for in PEI. The first thing he asked was there anything that we did or did not want to see. We were more interested in the culture and personalities of the island than the Green Gable aspect. He spared no time nor fuel to take the two of us all over to see the real PEI. WE got what we came for and more. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Kevin. Don and Rosie from Nashville
Marilyn CourtotUnited States
Wilfred HansenUnited States
A relaxed and informative tour. Kevin was willing to customize our tour to exactly what we wanted to see. We requested no tourist traps or gift shop stops. We viewed many remote areas of the island and had major history lessons on the trip. We had some great meals in the next few days at restaurants Kevin suggested. Thanks Kevin
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill I am glad you and Sandy enjoyed your visit to Prince Edward Island .
I'm happy to give the tour and Kevin a 5-out-of-5 rating. My friends and I greatly enjoyed the tour - and Kevin's leadership. He was very willing and patient to stop and wait whenever we asked, so that we could take photos along the route and at the site, and gave interesting information along the way, both on his own initiative and in response to our questions. He was flexible to accommodate our requests and very friendly. I will recommend the tour and Kevin to any of my friends thinking to go to PEI.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mary I appreciate that it was my pleasure .
Sandy CouvillonUnited States
Kevin took our group around Charlottetown to see the sights we requested and then some. We had a history buff on our tour who asked lots of questions & Kevin gave lots of great answers! He has a warm personality and we all really enjoyed getting to know him. Of course we visited Green Gables and were able to spend as much time as we wanted. PEI is beautiful and we had a lovely day. At our request, Kevin dropped us off downtown for lunch on our own. We all definitely recommend a tour with Kevin!
This is the first time we tried ToursByLocals, it was a wonderful experience specially when Kevin personnalized our tour and have us visiting all ice places with deep description of each one. Young girls being on the tour have enjoyed the cultural description of each area. It was very memorable experience. Many thanks again and hope to see you on our next trip. Personnally I learned to always use the service of Tours by locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Leila I appreciate your review. It was a pleasure to have taken you and your nieces on tour .
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you James I am glad you enjoyed the tour. I appreciate your high rating.
James M ThorneUnited States
We enjoyed our trip to Charlottetown with Kevin. Central to the trip was the trip to the House of Green Gables. My wife and my 4 sisters who made up this tour were all familar with the story and the house and grounds were delightful. We also toured a mussel farm and saw the lobster boats at harbor. Kevin also took us shopping for some of our necessities. Kevin was respectful of us and our needs and was one of the quieter of our guides.
Jeff StackUnited States
Kevin was extremely informed and knew everything about the island including much of its history. He was pleasant, communicated well and made our day exceptional
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeff I appreciate that and I am glad your day was exceptional as I enjoyed it very much. Kevin
Donald PachUnited States
Kevin did a great job showing our group of five adults the beautiful island of PEI. He drove us around the North Coast and then to Cavendish and return to the main port. As we drove around the island he provided us with a knowledgeable discussion of history and current affairs of the places visited. Kevin had a late model Dodge van which was a comfortable way to travel. We would gladly recommend him to others interested in visiting this delightful location. Sue and Don P.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sue and Don it was my pleasure . Kevin

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Therese The weather was perfect. I glad you enjoyed your tour .
Don WoodwardUnited States
Kevin took us throughout his home country, with stops and explanations of lobster fisheries and a description of the beautiful Prince Edward Island. A quite guide (which we appreciated) he spoke with great feeling and knowledge of the land where he grew up. The visit to the Ann of Green Gables site was worth it to see the type of culture which gave rise to the fictional character.
My private tour with Kevin was very enjoyable. He was personable, accommodating and informative. I rate this as a 5 out of 5.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Cathy I am glad you enjoyed the tour of the Island.
Lynne CastoldiMinnetonka, MN, United States
Kevin is very easy going, we appreciate his pleasant demeanor. Our tour was just the right length, with golfers in our group he swung by a local golf course which surprised us with a fabulous view! He dropped us off at a wonderful pub for lunch, we asked him to join us unfortunately he was booked for another tour. Kevin was easy to contact via text and very prompt to respond. We changed the size of our group from 2 to 4 at the last minute which Kevin easily facilitated. Lynne & Mark
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lynne and Mark it was my pleasure. I am so glad you enjoyed the tour.
Robert WackerUnited States

Donna RobinsonUnited States
Eileen OttUnited States
My Husband and I had the pleasure of being shown around PEI by our Guide, Kevin. Kevin was in the Cruise Terminal when we arrived a little earlier than planned. He was very informative and we learned a lot about life on PEI, the lobster fishermen, Mussels, etc. We saw all the highlights such as Green Gables, Dalvay by The Sea, a fishing boat pulling in with lobsters, the beaches, etc. We really enjoyed our tour with Kevin and it was one of the highlights of our Cruise!
Laurie McGowanUnited States
All four of us thought Kevin did an awesome job!! He stopped wherever we wanted and let us spend as much time as we needed at those stops. Choose Kevin as your next tour guide!!!
Susan jane BurnsCanada
Kevin arrived on time and provided us with a 3 hour tour. There were 2 couples in a comfortable van and we were able to learn so much about the island. Kevin was flexible in both time and stops for photos! If anyone is thinking of touring the island, I highly recommend Tours by Locals- hopefully you get Kevin and just sit back and enjoy the beauty! We asked Kevin lots of questions and as an islander, he knew it all and more! A trip highlight for sure!!!
Kenneth CochranUnited States
Amy B.United States
Kevin was quiet but informative and responded knowledgeably to all of our questions. He was flexible and arranged the tour to meet our needs.
The tour was everything we expected and more. Kevin was knowledgeable, courteous and flexible. All you could possibly expect.
Judy M.United States
Barbara KellyUnited States
Kevin was very knowledgeable about PEI, the people and the history. It was just what we wanted!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Barbara it was my pleasure. Kevin
Eva TsuiUnited States
Kevin and Terry are great. Since we are traveling with kids, they took us to a soap factory with baby goats, this wasn't in the itinerary. The kids loved it. It was very relaxing to be able to travel at our own pace, we didn't feel rushed at all.
Darlene MickesUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour with Kevin on PEI. He was very personable, gave us a great history of the Island and made our day very worthwhile. He didn't rush us at Anne of Green Gables and we had plenty of time to see all of the sights that had been on our "bucket list". Even though the weather was not the most conducive for touring Kevin made our day most enjoyable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Darlene I am glad you enjoyed the tour it was all my pleasure I enjoyed the day as well . Thanks again Kevin
A great day thoroughly enjoyed by all six of us. Kevin was a very good guide and answered all our many questions. He drove us to the highlights we wanted to see including the amazing bridge. A very beautiful part of Canada! We would recommend this tour with Kevin to everyone!
Anna BedrossianUnited States
It was our favorite stop and most comfortable tour. Kevin was well mannered and I would recommend him again.
Carol WidegrenUnited States
Very good driver but not very talkative. It was hard to hear him from the back seat, soft spoken.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. This tour was a bit of a challenge since, to save money, we used your car instead of my van where I have speaker to the back. Also I had to navigate your husband on where to go which took away from the tour. We also made a number of last minute changes to accommodate your requests and time constraints.
Janice ReidUnited States
Lots of quiet time unless we asked questions. Thought the tour was expensive for three people. I think if you have less that 6 people the price should be reduced accordingly.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: A private tour can be expensive for smaller groups, however the guide's time and expenses are the same regardless of the number of travelers.
Kathleen KendellenRohnert Park, CA, United States
Kudos to Kevin for service above and beyond the usual. He went out of his way to tailor our excursion to the specifics of our interest and, for extra measure, added his own background and experience in living in this beautiful locale. We recommend him unqualifiedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathleen and Mike I enjoyed the day as much as you did. You are a great couple and if your up this way again by all means look me up. P.S. Tell Mike we will go and rent some suds. Thanks Again Kevin
Kevin gave us a great tour of not only the major sights in PEI, but a feeling for the local culture people. We really enjoyed it & would recommend it to others.
