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.

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!

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.

A bit too much of looking at fancy homes rather than historical information about your beautiful city.

4 stars because of the site set up--site doesn't make it very clear whether p/u from the hotel is an option or not (I've sent an email and then later made a call to the company trying to clarify, but it did not help either). Anyway, the website allows you to put the name of your hotel in for the p/u when in fact you have to wait for the bus in front of the Empress. Other than that everything was fine. We took the tour twice, once for the tour itself and the other time we've used hop-off/hop-on option. The best guide was Adrian, he loves his city and we just loved his sense of humor!

Delightful tour. It gave us a view of inside Victoria beyond the Empress Hotel, its different sorts of residents and the neighborhoods where they live. Well worth the time.

This was fab, everyone involved had time to explain all. cost covered 3 day hop on hop off journey. This was great as on day 1, could do the entire journey working out where and how long to get off and stay to look around on future trios. well worth the money. Guides very knowledgable on all aspects of tour

I assumed that this was a double-decker bus tour, but it is a regular bus tour. My mistake, I should have checked. But it was a very warm day when we took the bus tour, so I was thankful for the A/C in the bus. A tour of Victoria with the driver giving facts/history/interesting points of interest and a few jokes here and there. I had gone on this tour before,so I knew what to expect. It was my parents' first time, and they fell asleep through some of it. They were surprised that a good portion of the tour was through the nicer Victoria neighborhoods. I think they didn't realize that Victoria, although beautiful, is not a large city.

Very worthwhile. We saw just how lovely Victoria is, areas that we hadn't seen by staying in the harbor area.
