Perfect overview of the city. Our driver/guide was fantastic. Plenty of time at the castle. Great scenic route.
This was a great way to see the city and sights. Our Bus Driver/Tour Guide was absolutely fantastic. He really made the experience all the more enjoyable. I did not get his name but wish that I had. I would highly recommend taking this tour.
Thanks to Erin for helping set up the afternoon tea and then taking the time to text me to let me know all was on schedule made for a great start... The City Sightseeing Tour with the Castle was the best tour I've ever taken in Victoria, thanks especially to our guide, Peter Miller. He was knowledgeable, kept us all on schedule, showed us places of interest near and outside the usual tours within the city. We saw the city from a viewpoint at Mount Tolmie, it included a wonderful time at the castle, we traveled through beautiful residential areas and visited a marina near Oak Bay. Then we added afternoon tea at the Empress with an incredible savings. I'm looking forward to taking this same tour again in two years.
Excellent tour. The castle, while not as big as some in Europe, has some great furnishing detail in it and is generally well restored some areas are still in progress. The city tour was thorough and our tour guide was both witty and knowledgeable. Our particular tour included the High Tea option at the Empress Hotel which was a great value as the tour with High Tea was only 5-10 more than the cost of High Tea on its own.
Very comprehensive tour. We could not have covered that much territory, in the time we had, on our own. Driver was very informative.
On our bus we had a couple in their nineties with walkers sitting topside and our driver showed much compassion towards them. He made sure they got up the hil to the castle and back down safely. Also aiding them down the stairs of the bus. Cudos to our driver!
Loved Victoria. What a beautiful city. This was an enjoyable tour showing a sample of the Victoria area. The time passed quickly. The bus driver was very nice, informative and helpful. I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic Trip, Excellant tour guide very knowledgeable.Stanley Park was so beautiful.
Victoria is a great city to visit! Full of history, beautiful interesting buildings and great people!
The city tour was informative and the guide very knowledgable. Scenery spectacular both in sun and drizzle!
Royal Museum a place for a return visit!
We had excellent driver/tour guides. They actually talked with us prior to the start of the tour and recommended sites according to our interests. Would certainly take the tour again.
All of my trips were wonderful! The buses were convenient and timely. The drivers were informative and caring.
I am still awaiting information that you have issued a refund for all the trips I took with you after the initaial one.
I'm so glad we decided to take the City Tour. It gave us a more full picture of Victoria, the history and a sense of where things were, so when we wanted to go to specific sites, we felt more comfortable about the areas, how to get there and what to expect. The three day 'hop on and off' pass was a great idea. Unfortunately, we were so busy that we didn't have the time to take advantage of it.
Driver was informative and interesting to listen to. Loved his city and helped us see why.
Same company that did the Buchart Gardens tour. They did an exceptional job.
It was a wonderful experience for first time visitors of Victoria. We truly enjoyed our 90-minute tour of the BC capital because our driver guide was very knowledgeable and brought us to places we
wouldn't have gone on our own. Highly recommended!
It was wonderful and I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it to everyone.
The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had front seats on the top level of the 'Big Red Bus' and it was a fantastic view.
Good all around tour of the island, need to be notified that the mansion is a five story stair climb, also need more time for the mansion
The tour of Victoria on the open air bus was very nice, We enjoyed seeing the sights in Chinatown, the city, the bay and Craigdarrach Castle, It was a great way to get a taste of the city and the surrounding areas to decide if you'd like to venture into other venues. It would be helpful to spend more time touring the city and Craigdarroch Castle should be a longer amount of time, at least an hour.
Victoria is beautiful. The castle was majestic overlooking the city.
There were lots of ocean views and coastline, but not as much history as I was expecting.
The guide was great and entertaining.
I am so glad that I took this tour. I got a chance to see the full beauty of victory...the extra dollars for the high tea is highly recommended
We took this tour to get us familiar with the layout of the area. Guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out many places of interest.
Our tour bus drivervDave was excellent. We saw a lot of very nice homes along the shore drive. We didn't get up near any of the castles during the tour. Be careful if you are on top of the bus. The trees can smack you pretty good if you are not alert to them. So much to see that it's impossible to fit it all in. This tour gave us a good roadmap of where we would like to go back to and investigate more thoroughly.
I enjoyed the tour. I would have liked also some time off at some points, for example China town to visit the Chinese Gardens. A lot of companies drop you off at some point and give you between 1/2 and 1 hr. free.
