The tour was wonderful. The driver, Bjorn was personable and knowledgeable about the gardens and the island. The 10 tour was too long a day. We opted to not take the free time in Victoria City and take the 6 pm ferry back to Vancouver City. Perfect weather. great time. We will do it again when we get up this way.
An amazing tour. Bjorn showed us places we never would have seen if we had not been with him. The wonderful view from Beacon Hill was a good example of the above. His expertise and little insights made the trip to Butchart Gardens and Victoria a highlight of our time in Canada!
Our tour went smoothly. Our driver was a very nice man. The gardens were awesome, and weather delightful
Steve did an awesome job! We had a great day on the island and at the Gardens. Steve even took us and showed us how to get to Granville Island from our hotel so we could go there the following day.
Stephen was a great tour driver. We altered our day to suite our energy levels after our cruise so we left Vancouver later and arrived back there earlier in the evening. We didn't feel rushed at all during the day. Saw everything we had on our list to see. It was so nice to have a car waiting for us when we were ready to leave, when we wanted to leave. Expensive, but really worth it!
This day trip to Vancouver Island was excellent. Our guide - Steven - went out of his way to cater for our interests. Even finding a lawn bowling club while we were visiting the Butchart Gardens. We were able to visit this later in the day.
Steven's advice on what to see and the time he gave us to follow up on our interests was about right.
The Butchard Gardens were special but again Steven's advice on how to see as much as possilbe in a short time was very useful.
Guide very knowledgeable and interesting. Would use him again. Gardens lovely but well over-crowded.
My wife and I had a terrific day.....the private tour was excellent and well worth the additional expense.
Excellent planning and great service by Glenn and the lady who picked up our bags at the cruise ship terminal. Thank you!
It was one of the best experiences of our lives--a day I shall never forget!
Our tour thru Vancouver BC and Buchart Gardens was excellent, and Wild BC Tours with Chuck Scott as the tour guide get an A rating from us. They were on time, very knowledgeable and informative, and the tour was very flexible, no rushing, no fighting the crowds, etc. I would recommend this private limo type of tour and Wild BC Tours to anyone who wanted to see Canada.
Tour group was able to work with us to create the tour that meet our needs and wishes. Worked with us to not only deliver the tour of Victoria but also worked in a quick tour of Vancourver. Very professional and friendly. Great day.
A thoroughly worthwhile, if long, day out. We can not speak too highly of the local tour company. Everything on the tour was explained and shown to us, but we were still given sufficient time to enjoy some aspects on our own.
The private limo was the way to go! We all enjoyed the day immensely. It was nice to be able to go where we wanted to go, and stay as long as we liked. It was a wonderful day. We will be sure to use this again when we return to the area. Thanks again for a great day!
We saw a lot in one day. Definitely saw places the bus could have never gone. While our guide was friendly and accommodating, he did not seek input on things like when we'd like to eat or how much time we might want in Victoria. We asked about the itinerary of the day, but we didn't a complete picture of the day. Lunch wasn't even mentioned until we asked at 2 oclock. We were, however, happy that we saw things we didn't know we wanted to see.
the tour went smoothly on schedule. everything is well organized. the buchard garden was impressive
We had a very pleasant tour with glorious weather. While the transport was smooth and the commentary informative and useful we found the addition of the Tour guides child (well mannered and well informed ) a trifle irksome.
Primary reason for the trip was to spend as much time as we needed at Bucharest Gardens. We felt that our driver rushed us through the garden and then had much time to kill for the rest of the visit to Victoria.
I learned a lot. The driver was great. Butchart Gardens a highlight..so was ferry ride over and back.
The Butchart Gardens are the high spot and worthwhile.The trip to Victoria wasn't worth the time.
