Excellent Private Tour with Jack
We wanted a private tour and was very happy we booked the Island Scenic Drive with Anne of Green Gables for our group of 5. Our tour guide was Jack DesRoches and he was great! We went to picturesque beaches, walked through the beautiful Dalvay-by-the-Sea (a great place to stop) as well as a nice stop at the Prince Edward Island Preserve. Jack gave us a a fantastic tour with lots of local information. He even had brought along some muffins! We recommend asking for Jack when you book your tour – you won’t be disappointed.
Excellent tour of a beautiful island
We took the tour with Jack DesRoches who could not have been a better guide. Learned history, economics, and beauty of the island. He planned a wonderful tour including Anne of Green Gables and the National parks but stopped anywhere we were interested in. This was the way to get a feel of PEI without the large groups and truly see the sights.
Pleasant, laid back, comfortable, home made muffins & a delightful man to spend our day with in PEI! It was all & more than we had hoped for. A private tour, plenty of info but not pressured, time to enjoy & we most certainly did! Thank you Jack & Duncan for providing such excellent service! Don’t worry they will always get you back to your ship!
Islands Finest Was Terrific!
We arrived in Charlottetown, PEI on a New England/Canada Cruise (ms Rotterdam) October 11. We booked the 4.5+ hr “Island Finest Tour “. Our tour guide, Jack met us in the cruise terminal as arranged. (Very easy and clear instructions had been given ahead of time via email.) Jack was a terrific guide full of interesting information and very personable! We learned all about the local history in the town of Charlottetown, traveled out to Dalvay by the Sea, went to the little town of Rustico, saw the red cliffs at Cavendish and learned about the mussel, oyster and lobster industry AND potato fields!. A brief stop to snap a quick picture at Anne of Green Gables too. We made a couple bathroom/short shopping stops on at a Preserve Company. I feel like we got so much more than the tours the ship was offering! We also had great weather. Two other couples joined us from our ship after posting a notice on Cruise Critic. Made the tour affordable too! What a great day and Jack went out of his way to be an incredible host!
Great tour guide and tour
We shared the lighthouse and winery tour with two other couples from our Norwegian Dawn cruise. Jack met us at port. It was raining so he took us for a tour around Charlottetown and talked about the history and the architecture. He was hoping that it would clear up once we headed to the lighthouses and he was right. He had a lot to tell us about the history of the island and the lighthouses that he was taking it to. Jack had some muffins for us along with bottles of water which was a nice touch.
