Kevin provided an excellent tour. He was very knowledgeable of PEI and was eager to share the beautiful island with us. He was very accommodating with our request to tour the House at Green Gables and we did not feel rushed at all. The homemade snack was a wonderful surprise. Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kathy thank you so much for the great review . Glad you enjoyed the island and the homemade snacks.

Excellent tour which was adapted to our needs by Kevin. He gave us a relaxed tour with a well judged balance between giving us a good commentary and not ( as some guides do ) talking all the time. A great way to see around Prince Edward Island with someone who lives on the island and therefore knows it so well. A surprise , and much appreciated , were some home made treats which Kevin passed out during the tour. They were so good the only thing we left we a few crumbs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great review. I am so glad you enjoyed seeing the island and the treats.

We really enjoyed our tour of PEI with Kevin. We loved seeing the island and especially enjoyed Kevin's explanation of the lobster traps and seeing the variety of housing. Kevin answered all our questions and was a charming guide. We loved Carr's Oyster House and felt like we had found a real "local" place. Rating: 5!!! Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Edward for the great review. I enjoyed having your group out on tour . So glad everyone enjoyed seeing our island and the lunch stop at Carr's .

Jim McSkiminUnited States
Kevin was a great guide. He met us promptly at the cruise terminal. He had a nice van for the tour. Kevin gave us a short tour through Charlottetown before heading north to the parks. On the way he gave a good explanation of oyster & mussel farming. The parks were beautiful. We visited Dalvay Inn & some fishing docks. He took us to lunch at Carr's Seafood. Excellent lunch with good raw and steamed PEI oysters, clams and mussels and lobster rolls. A bit expensive but good. We recommend Kevin for your tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jim .I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and your visit to Prince Edward Island. I had a great time showing you around .
We had a wonderful with Kevin. The tour with him was definitely one of the highlights of our one-month trip to Canada. We were impressed by his deep knowledge of the island and his ability to adapt his tour to our preferences. We saw many interesting and inspiring places. It was also very joyful for our kids, who could ask any question they could think of. We would highly recommend Kevin's tour to anyone who really wants to experience PEI.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review. The kids asked some great questions. I enjoyed the day.

Kevin met our group of 6 gals with a sign at the port. His vehicle was very comfortable and we were thrilled that he used a microphone so we could all hear him. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about PEI. He answered all our questions and allowed us to direct the tour and showed us the things that were of most interest to us. He never made us feel rushed, in fact our tour went a bit over our planned timeline! Bottled water and delicious baking provided✅ Highly recommend Kevin as a tour guide��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joan It was a pleasure to have your group on tour to kick off my 2019 season. Thank you for the great review and hope that all of you enjoyed the rest of your cruise. Kevin

Outstanding guide with great knowledge and love for his beautiful city

Richard RoweUnited States
Kevin did a great job in setting up and conducting our tour for 4 of PEI. We had a very relaxed and enjoyable day, learned a great deal about PEI including how mussels and oysters are raised, lobster fishing, history of PEI, and life on the island. Of all the places we went, only once did we run into the big tour buses, a big plus for us. Mostly we felt like friends visiting and being shown the sights. Another big plus was Kevin having an audio system in his car so anyone in the back can hear.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rick for the great review. I enjoyed the day and you are right it did feel like friends out for the day. Thanks again.
Sherry CarverUnited States

Susan EricksonUnited States
Kevin met us at the cruise ship terminal with a sign, with our name on it ,which was very helpful in quickly finding him and starting our tour. He was informative and knew a lot about the island and especially lobster and mussel industry. He answered all our questions and showed us his beautiful island at a lovely pace for us. He gave us waters and his wife even baked some goodies for us!! Thoroughly enjoyable! Kevin recommended and then dropped us off at a terrific seafood restaurant close to the ship!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan I am so glad you enjoyed the day.
Ken SchwenkeUnited States
Kevin was great! He made our trip to PEI much more than it otherwise would have been - he was personable, knowledgeable, and a real pleasure to be with for several hours. We had a group of 4, and all of us would recommend him strongly! To top it off - he even brought cookies his wife had baked - it doesn't get much better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ken I appreciate that it was my pleasure.

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.

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.

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.
