Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

Yes, advance ticket purchase is required. Events typically sell out quickly. To maximize your chances of getting the date, time, and number of tickets you prefer, please book well in advance.

What should I bring with me?

You should bring a camera to record each wonderful moment! We also recommend bringing a reusable bottle for drinking.

During spring and summer months, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. Umbrella’s are always a good idea to pack as well.

During fall and winter months, it’s important to wear and an extra layer of clothing and consider bringing a hat and gloves.

"It was a great educational tour of Charlottetown where we went at our own pace and used our own smartphones. Very multicultural (recognized Mi'kmaq, Acadian, Irish, Black, Lebanese, Women's communities). Each clue had lovely historical pictures including architectural drawings."
