Outstanding tour. Victoria and Butchart Gardens were beyond my expectations. I wanted to take pictures of every flower. There was some much going on in Victoria there was not enough time to take it all in. Makes me want to come back and stay there for a week.
I want to commend our bus driver Michael. He went above and beyond his duties. My wife left her camera at the Steam Ship restaurant but did not know it till we were halfway back to Vancouver. Mike called the restaurant and verified that they did have her camera. Mike made arrangements with a co-worker to pick it up the next day and deliver it to our friends who were staying over an extra day in Vancouver. We want to thank Michael for going the extra mile. Thanks, Jack Werner, Baton Rouge, La.
A great but long day of tour which we truly enjoyed sightseeing the city of Victoria and the Butchart Gardens! So glad we did this wonderful tour - very convenient to be picked up at our hotel and then to ride in the bus which got on the ferry boat to Vancouver Island. Although the tour guide tried to be helpful, we 4 Deaf people wished there was a sign language interpreter for us. We know we missed out a lot of valuable information during the bus ride. We did make a request in advance for an interpreter, but we were told that none of the tour guides can sign. In the USA, an interpreter would have been hired out of an agency to provide the services for the Deaf.
I loved the tour. The guide was excellent, informative, and very helpful. The itinery and timing was amazing. I would love to do it again.
Peter was the best guid I have ever had. He went beyond the call of duty. Thank you!
Great tour, a full day of sight seeing and an excellent tour guide.
It was a wonderful day and a great trip. I can't remember our tour guide's name but he did an excellent job...very interesting and informative. We loved Victoria!
A man of few words, the trip was great. Love victoria and of course the gardens were wonderful.
Our guide was courteous, patient and accomodating. Getting to victoria and the gardens any other way would be foolish. Just getting on the ferry was worth the trip fee timewise. We saw people that had been in line for hours waiting a turn to get on the ferrys. Brutal! Very enjpuable. Thanks, Nelson and Kathie Hopper
Our driver was fabulous and helped make the Seattle traffic tolerable.
Superb organization and tips from our tour guide. We didn't have to worry about anything other than getting to the minibus on time in Victoria and at Butchart Gardens. Might have liked a little more time in Victoria. Overall, a long but rewarding day's tour!
Would love to go back and stay few days in the Island ... beautiful
Victoria was nice allthough a little "cheesey". Butchart gardens were extraordinary. A very nice relaxing trip.
A very fun and informative day. Great way to see Victoria/ Butchart Gardens with a terrific guide!
Great tour. Our tour guide Rene was GREAT. He explained everything in detail and we could not have had anyone better. Everyone on his bus told us they were as satisfied as we wee. If we used this tour company again, we would hope to get Rene again. We rate him EXCELLENT.
Fabulous trip, great weather and a really amazing tour guide - thanks Devon!
This was a great tour to Victoria and Butchart gardens. Our tour guide Amy was excellent and extremely knowledgable. Highly recommend this tour.
The ferry trip was very relaxing and Victoria itself was quaint and interesting. The highlight was definitely the visit to the Butchart Gardens. The colour and variety were overwhelming. It was very hot that day, but we kept walking and viewing because everything was so amazing. Our review would not be complete without a very positive comment about Meg, our driver/guide. She was great - entertaining and informative and we would not have had such a good day without her. The only negative comment is that it really is a very long day!
A most beautiful tour everything went so smoothly eg ferries pick ups etc. Loved Victoria and the Butchart Gardens were out if this world. A long day but well worth it.
The tour bus picked us up at our hotel at the time that they said they'd be there. The driver was very knowledgeable and helpful. Butchart Gardens is a must see. We had plenty of time at the gardens to view the grounds. The bus driver gave us good tips regarding eating places in Victoria and places to visit. I'd definitely use this service again.
