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 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

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.

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.

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 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.

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 .

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great review . I enjoyed having you out in tour.

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.

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.

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 !!

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
