This tour was everything and more that was promised. Our tour director, Terry, was terrific and picked us up at our hotel right on time. He was informative and accommodating and cheerful. Everything went off without a hitch and we all loved his "You betcha's".

Took the 2 day tour which was enjoyable but would have preferred more time at Buchart Gardens - 2 hours was insufficient especially since we had over a day to explore Victoria.
