Had made a few phone calls to Harbour Hippo before heading to PEI and was advised there should be a tour the day we were interested in but to call at 9:15 am to reserve seating and confirm tour. We tried from 9:10 until 9:25 and got no answer just a recording with no real information. Ended up driving down... More

This tour is great! You get a nice look around the city of Charlottetown...then you plunge into the water and sail around the waterfront for a sea-side view! Really fun! Our tour guide, Hannah, was a sweatheart! She obviously loves her home-town of Charlottetown! Very charming and informative! The price was very reasonable for such an unusual and informative tour!!... More

We like to take the city tours as a good introduction. This one was great. Our guide was a univ. student with lots of information; facts, history and fun tales about Charlottetown. She even entertained us with a song she had written. This was the double decker bus and we tried to get the amphibian tour too because this one... More

Great way to see a fantastic town, learn some interesting facts and a bit of history and have the kids entertained at the same time. Great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. Thanks Captain Michael.

My family and I love doing city tours when exploring new cities, we have done many tours and out list includes hippo/duck tours. This tour was really lacking facts, I'm sure the city is full of landmarks and history. The tour guide spent most of her time talking to is about coffee, where she likes to get her coffee. Very...

Enjoyed our tour on the Harbour Hippo. We did the land and sea tour. I always like doing city tours the first day we arrive to get the lay of the land. Our tour guide was Hannah. Lots of energy and she really enjoyed doing her job. Capt. Tom was a good bus driver and an even better boat driver.

We had a great time on the Harbour Hippo! Worth every minute/dollar of it! The tour guide as well as the Captain were both very friendly and engaging. Learned a lot about the beautiful town of Charlottetown and were very happy to have spent the money on it!!

We loved driving around the city and hearing about all of its history ❤️ It's a beautiful place with a lot... More
