Had a wonderful time. The Butchart Gardens were magnificent. Met some lovely people. Craigdarroch Castle was amazing. Everything was so well organised. Thank you.

We loved this tour. It would have been nice to have 3 hours in the Butchart Gardens rather than only two as one of us has hip/knee problems and walks rather slow. But the Gardens were so beautiful. The drive around Victoria with the tour guide giving history was great. We learned a lot. The Inn at Laurel Point has a lovely view, and is a lovely place. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We were glad we stayed overnight because next day we had a horse and carriage ride, we walked through Chinatown, and we went through the Robert Bateman Museum which is a must see if you like wildlife. We were booked to take the float plane back to Vancouver, and somehow our driver forgot to pick us up at the Inn. But Haydee got on the phone, and within 30 minutes everything was straightened out; a cab picked us up, and free of charge took us to the place where the float planes leave, there we were already booked on the next flight and everyone was so cheerful and helpful about getting us on this floatplane. We loved the flight across; seeing where the people lived on the islands, and the trails going to their house, and their boats used for transportation. This is one awesome tour, and it was almost worth being forgotten just to find out how fast and seamlessly the problem can be sorted out. I already had a sincere apology on my iPad before I returned to my temporary home at White Rock. I would love to do this tour again.

Fabulous driver Andy, wonderful tour and destination. Only problem was that our hotel room booking was made for the incorrect night so we ended up in a crummy room (with no view as promised), lucky it was only for one night!

Everything went well. We enjoyed our trip. For me I knew the float plane would be a little scary. I would have liked the option of using the ferry back also. It was raining so the view was not as good as a sunny day would be. The hotel and restaurant were lovely. The walk way to downtown was great. The tour was a little pricey, but the convenience of having everything go well was worth it.

My visit to Victoria included one night in Victoria. A lot of my fellow travellers were doing a day trip from Vancouver. I can't imagine that the day trip could do justice to this beautiful city and island. Starting with Butchart Gardens set the tone for this trip. The gardens are staggeringly beautiful. The tour around Victoria revealed a city that hasn't changed as much as Vancouver and which retains some old world charm. It was fun to watch the comings and goings of boats and float planes in the inner harbour. The atmosphere in Victoria seemed slower and less frenetic than Vancouver. The overnight stay was at the Inn at Laurel Point which also did not disappoint in any way. My return trip to Vancouver was via float plane which was in itself really amazing. Again, the local tour company provided a tour guide and driver that really enhanced the experience of this trip. This trip has it all - ferry ride through the Gulf Islands, Butchart Garden tour, Victoria tour, nice overnight and float plane back to Van. What's not to enjoy?

Great tour. The driver, Denny, was competent,informative, and on time. the Inn at Laurel Point was more than adequate. Loved the return to Vancouver by float plane.
Would do this again.

This tour was everything and more that was promised. Our tour director, Terry, was terrific and picked us up at our hotel right on time. He was informative and accommodating and cheerful. Everything went off without a hitch and we all loved his "You betcha's".

Took the 2 day tour which was enjoyable but would have preferred more time at Buchart Gardens - 2 hours was insufficient especially since we had over a day to explore Victoria.

Would have liked a hotel closer in town, information as to what is going on in Victoria while we were there would have helped, beautiful gardens with ample time to explore, floatplane fun

A great trip. Driver was friendly and professional. He picked us up on time and allowed the maximum time at the gardens. The gardens were lovely as was the whole city.

3 star rating: Worth doing

Trip to Victoria was very informative. Having only 3 passengers made it very personal.
Accommodation in Victoria was excellent.
Being the only passenger returning Sunday was a bit odd...I was expecting more folk!!
Thank you, glad I did the tour!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Everything was nice until we got back to Vancouver. Then we were left stranded after getting off the float plane. No transportation to take us to our hotel. At least deliver us to where we were picked up is all we ask.
