We recently left the ship in Charlottetown to find a private tour of the area as the ship's ones were too expensive and too long. We came across Chris Garnham on the dock outside the termina. He had a sign advertising his tours and costs. We told him what we wanted to see for around 4 hours, and he told... More

Chris listened to what our interests where and was excellent in showing us the sights, telling us the history of the area. National Park Visit and walked us to the beach area plus a special stop at Delvay By the Sea. Friendly, congenial and very considerate. Great value and highly recommend pre booking in advance.

Setup tour in advance of our cruise. Chris met us at the cruise ship terminal and took us to all the major attractions in the area and a few that were off the beaten path. We had a great time.

We recently took a cruise and once off the ship at Charlottetown met Chris Garnhum from Fair Island Tours. We asked for him to suggest a tour for a few hours around PEI's countryside. This was our favorite tour of the trip and Chris talks about the economy, the history, the fishing and potato industry and everything in between. He... More

We were met at the cruise port by Chris Garnhum, the proprietor of this small business. Our tour was to Anne of Green Gables, but we also went... More

We were on a cruise and the shore excursion prices were high. So we decided to take a minivan tour. We are a family of 5 and wanted to see the beaches, the Confederation Bridge and island highlights. Chris charged $60/hour for the van, which was a bargain compared to what the shore excursions were. Chris showed us all the... More

While on a Canadian/New England Holland America Cruise, we docked at PEI. After reviewing the options for shore excursions, we chose Fair Island Tours, owned by Chris Garnhum. Chris has spent his entire life on PEI and therefore knows a lot about the history and life on PEI. He had a lot of interesting stories and told them in a... More

Chris was the best! What a super time we had with him as our guide. Extremely knowledgeable, humerous and is native to the area. Got to see perhaps more then you would see on a normal excursion. Chris made us feel like we have known him for years. Very well priced and one of the best highlights of our 7... More

Chris was waiting for us on the cruise ship terminal with our name on a sign. Our family consists of two senior adults and their two adult children. We all were able to fit very well in Chris' minivan. We wanted a tour with limited walking, and the possibility of visiting a church where my dad could possibly play the... More

Chris was waiting for us at the cruise ship terminal with my name on a sign. His tour was very informative. We had a 4 hour tour and Chris filled the driving time telling us local information and stories about himself and experiences. I have been on other taxi tours where the driver just drives and doesn't say a word... More
