Excellent day trip. We had plenty of time in Victoria and in the gardens. Warwick, our driver, was a delight! He had great tips for each stage of the trip.
Well led by the guide, Bazil, who relayed enticing facts. Although a long day, time was well managed. The museum displaying First Nation history is worth a visit and the Butchart Gardens are the icing on the cake.
Excellent trip and our guide/driver was amazing! Long day but well worth it!
The tour guide was very informative and pleasant. The gardens were spectacular. We had enough time to explore Victoria and have a nice lunch.
A not to miss Tour! Our Tour Guide was very informative and provided additional Vancouver and Victoria City information enroute. Loved, loved, loved this Tour! BC Ferry ride was great. We had plenty of time in Victoria to walk in town and lunch on the wharf prior to the Garden Tour. Do not forget a water bottle and snack for the Gardens during the summer.
Of personal concern We were to confirm our scheduled Tour time upon arrival in Vancouver. I sent an email with our Vancouver Hotel information 8 days prior since we were arriving by cruise ship from Alaska. During late evening Hotel check-in, we were told the Tour Company had already phoned and confirmed our scheduled departure time for the next day. What a relief....no worry....they were very accommodating and eliminated unnecessary worry. This is an excellant and easy way to plan travel tours. Loved this beautiful and well planned Tour.
D was our guide, she was fantastic. Very long day and she was always enthusiastic. She shared nice information and kept the crowd on time.
Driver/ Guide Rob was excellent. He gave an excellent commentary and was very well informed.
Very enjoyable day.
Went Monday, June 6th. The tour was amazing! Everything from the bus pick-up to the ride to the ferry, the ferry ride itself, Butchart gardens, and the ferry and ride back to the hotel went splendidly! Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. He was the best. :
great tour, knowledgeable tour guide, everything was very efficiently organized, would recommend this tour to anyone. Had a great time! Thanks!
Awesome tour leader with great info., and history on the area as we traveled
Spectacular day - it is long, but worth it. Our Guide Brent was very diligent and accommodating. I am not sure how this tour would be in so-so weather, but we had a great day. Victorian and Butchart Gardens are just charming and stunning.
Be prepared for a very long day but a trip worth taking. Victoria a beautiful little town and Butchart Gardens stunning. Devon our guide was friendly and helpful. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Use the lounge on the ferry if you get chance, we didn't use it but heard good reports from other travellers on our tour.
Driver Guide Rene was superb and adorable. just enjoyed the trip
The whole trip was a wonderful experience. Our guide, Tim, was a mine of useful information and kept us all entertained during the trip. One of the best guides we ever had.
The gardens were magnificent and Victoria a lovely city.
Our tour guide, Aubyn, was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. He told us about culture, history, and his recommendations on what to do and the best way to see things - a lot of little tips that were very helpful.
Excellent day. Enough time in Victoria to see the city centre and waterfront. Butchart Gardens amazing. Francis, our guide, never stopped talking during the bus journeys, but he was full of interesting and useful information so it was great. Sea crossings were good, with plenty of food options, so take breakfast and evening meals on the boat to save time.
Our driver Richard did a professional job and the trip was fabulous. You need to know it is a long day but well worth the effort. You cannot miss this trip.
Very long day - 14.5 hours from pickup to dropoff. Enjoyed Devon and her bubbly personality. Alloted time for the Gardens and walking Victoria was good. Good size group.
We appreciated Brent being very clear about his expectations and necessity for compliance with time schedules which enabled us to meet ferry, etc. and enjoy our day as much as possible. Would have liked a bit more time at the Garden, but overall we enjoyed our day very much!
