Tour company was very organized. Knew exactly what they were doing, kept on time and had guides with fun personalities. Tour is a great way to see the sights on Vancouver Island without having to deal with the ferry and driving yourself. And, they give you just enough time to look around - not too little, or too much. All well worth it!
I was traveling with three other friends and we all had a great time. We only wish we had more time in the gardens and downtown Victoria but it would be impossible with how much travelling time it took.
Our tour guide picked us up on time from our hotel in downtown Vancouver and quickly picked up the rest of the guests. The trip to Victoria and back were seamless and everything was very well organized. I would recommend this excursion to anyone I knew going to Vancouver.
Amy, our guide/driver for the day was excellent! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our day in a group of 19. The ferry ride was a lot of fun. Amy was very knowledgeable throughout our day of adventure and gave precise details of when/where to meet so that our group was on time and thus enjoyed everything instead of waiting on people. It was so fun to hear Amy tell the funny story of how she got locked in the luggage compartment of the bus during her first month on the job with Land and Sea--an example of how fun and "down to earth" our guide was. We would try Viator again based on this trip.
We were picked up and dropped up at the hotel. It is a very long day so I would suggest you bring snacks with you so you do not have to buy food all of the time. Thew views on the ferries, bus ride through Victoria and the Gardens are amazing. Very much worth it.
Excellent tour, great guide. Sadly it rained at Butchart Gardens, but they were still spectacular. Much enjoyed the day, though long, and would highly recommend it. D. Gilbert
excellent guide and great places to visit. The ferry trip across was a good experience
We only had one day to spend in Vancouver and this tour was perfect for us! The bus picked us up at our hotel and the tour and driver kept us entertained all day!
Great day out, driver was very friendly, helpful and informative making the whole trip a really enjoyable day. Only point of note was our pickup time was a little delayed due to the fact that we were the last one's to be picked up and there had been a delay at a previous hotel, not the drivers fault and a.phone call to the office soon cleared up why we were waiting while other trips were leaving.
This tour was the successful final of my Vancouver experience. The bus pick-up and drop-off went very smoothly and our guide Richard was very nice knowledgable. The ferry trip was amazing but we were also lucky with the weather. Butchart Gardens were even in November a delight - the Sunken Garden is a must-see! Thanks for this very nice trip!
Steve was a fantastic tour guide! Does he ever run out of energy? He created a wonderful experience for us.
Fantastic tour! Our tour guide, Brent, was a big reason why this tour was so great. He clearly loves his job and is really great at it! He was extremely organized, helpful, patient, friendly, and provided a wide variety of interesting information throughout the tour. We were able to stay on schedule and get the most out of our day. He was also very accommodating of passenger requests.
This tour was a good value. I would definitely recommend it. Ask for Brent!
This is a great way to to see flowers and fantastic views, take your time and smell the roses and all the other flowers
Butchart Gardens was very good. The Tourguide was very excelent too !! OK Victoria it is ok, but not so the highlight at my Vancouver trip.
Richard was a great tour director and was very informative, helpful, and nice. The tour was outstanding and the pacing was just right. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vancouver with the desire to see Victoria.
Our tour guide Kalhad was very entertaining and generously offered to push my friend, who had broken her ankle, around Butchart Gardens. We were very impressed Kalhad's knowledge of the area. It was a great tour and I would highly recommend it.
just a lovely day and made so much better with the driver we had who was fun and full of information
guide was energetic and knowledgeable. We made it on the earlier ferry to Victoria saving us an hour so therefore more time on the island of Victoria. Highly recommend Busch gardens.
It was perfect! Our guide was on time and very informative about all the areas we drove through and about the ferry. We will take Viator on other trips in the future. Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience, tho a rather long day. Would recommend it highly. Loved being a small bus of 22 were able to spend more time doing rather than waiting for 50 people to show up/come back.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Sylvie who unfortunately for you has now moved to London could not have been a more charming and helpful guide. I was there with 5 other travelers and we had a great time. The tour is a very long day, but well worth it.
