WOW.. what a fantastic experience, would recommend to all. We were on holiday from Ireland and this was one of the highlights. My teenage kids are still talking about it, they loved it and the history of the town etc was great. The actors were amazing, it was all amazing.. Thank you for the experience.

By chance, on a self-guided walking tour of Summerside's historic homes, I came upon the Wyatt Historic House tour, just about to begin. It was slow-season (September, so one should take the trouble to book ahead for this exceptional tour) and only four other people were in my group - a perfect number to be able to see and hear...

I've been on quite a few historic house tours over the years. Who would have thought the blink-and-you-miss-it town of Summerside PEI could be home to the most impressive of all of them? I found out about the house while googling local attractions as I briefly stopped in town for a coffee so I thought I'd take a chance &... More

The tour guide was amazingly helpful in tracing back our family roots, she took alot of time out of her day out of pure kindness to help us and we got SO much information from her about our family. We were blown away. The tour was really... More

It was just my husband and myself on a tour of this lovely old home with our entertaining and enthusiastic young guide who clearly knows her subject. She had interesting tidbits of information to offer on the contents of every room and the lifestyle of the family in general. We enjoyed her tour very much. Tickets for the tour are... More

The oddity tour is held in the Waytt Historic house. We went specifically to attend this particular tour. Unfortunately the day we attended, the individual who gives this particular tour was not available.
