The walking tour is a great way to learn about the city, architecture and history of Charlottetown. We enjoyed our tour with Joe, he's a Chartlottetown and history expert. I would highly recomment this tour, especially if Joe is the guide!

I appreciated my guide's knowledge and his willingness to tailor the information he shared to my particular interests. I would recommend him (Joe, if I recall correctly) and the Charlottetown tour, to others.

Great overall historical knowledge of Charlottetown and PEI. Went to all the known and a few unknown sites. Lots of fun.

Joe was an excellent guide who went above and beyond. Highly recommend this walking tour..
