Well organized. We got off our cruise ship and they were waiting for us. Walked off the ship and onto the bus. We were dropped off only a block away from our hotel...wonderful!

Excellent transfer. Coach met us on time when we left cruise ship and transfer to Victoria was quick. Coach had priority spot on ferry and was first off at Vancouver Island. WiFi on board and helpful commentary from driver. Would recommend this transfer Bill

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was an all-included trip from Victoria, BC to Vancouver, BC to meet our cruise ship. The bus station was near our hotel, and the whole trip was so convenient, as the bus actually boarded the ferry and we didn't have to transfer on either end. The ferry was huge and amazing, including a full dining area, arcade, and restrooms. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable, and we felt comfortable with his handling our luggage and delivering us to the cruise terminal. Overall, a great way to go!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

The bus was clean, comfortable and the driver was great. There was never a sense of danger, only great competence.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

A seamless way to get off a cruise and get to Victoria! I never would have navigated it easily on my own, as I had no idea how far from each other the cruise ship terminal and ferry terminal in Vancouver are and how far the ferry terminal in Victoria is to downtown Victoria. It was great not to have to haul luggage on and off various forms of transportation, too. The ferry ride was also very enjoyable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

It worked out extremely well for us. We were picked up at the cruise terminal in Vancouver, ferried to Vancouver Island and bussed to Victoria. The terminal was five minutes from our hotel. A quick cab trip got us to our destination with little effort on our part. Thank you.
