If you are looking for an experience where someone takes care of all the transportation this is it. I had a great experience taking a seaplane for the first time. When I checked in at the plane terminal they already had an envelope with my name on it for the rest of the transportation. The sea plane with very fun but wished the windows where cleaner so I could take pictures.
Couple of notes for improvement.
- Provide a clear address and name of company of where you pick up the bus in Victoria for the ferry crossing.
- Make sure the bus company the bus goes with you on the ferry knows that you need to be dropped off where you started. I had to ask and was a little nervous that I would not be dropped off properly and have to take a taxi far from Canada Place
- Provide clear instructions where the Seaplane terminal is located because Canada Place comprises several large buildings and it's not easy to find.
Overall I was happy with the experience and will use this company again on my next visit.
Doing what: Vancouver to Victoria by Seaplane and Ferry
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to answer any question about Vancouver, Victoria, the Gardens, and the ferry. The bus was comfortable and the ferry was as well the food was even surprisingly good!. The Gardens are exquisite and not to be missed, and I think I could live in Victoria. All in all, a wonderful trip!
Awesome trip and the gardens were the best I have ever seen. Do this tour and you wont be disappointed.
Enjoyed our tour .
This was an outstanding day with Lauren, our tour guide. R/t hotel pickup is the best. And then when we were delayed on our return trip due to a ferry delay between Vancouver and Victoria, Lauren called and got our next day tour to Whistler moved to another day so we weren't exhausted by two very long days in a row. We will definitely book with Viator again.
Beautiful day. The tour guy and tour schedule were excellent. Highly recommended to others. Great job.
Great naturalist guides. Saw lots of wildlife. Can't describe how great it was to have all transportation for the day taken care of.
The gardens were amazing. We definitely recommend the overnight tour. 2 hours in Victoria is not enough time and it's a long ride back to Vancouver via the shuttle. We enjoyed the float plane ride back, so much to see.
Tour guide is very friendly, knowledgeable,time well control.
Great trip. Loved the Fairmont!
Renee made it even better with his anecdotes. A very well-planned day, we got to do it all: ferry, lots of time on our own in Vancouver to get lunch and hand-dipped ice cream, and 2 hours was plenty of time to enjoy Butchart Gardens. Highly recommended as this would be a trek on your own. Than you, Viator!
Kelly was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable, very polite, and very upbeat. She even suggested a great restaurant that we rated excellent. Just wish we had more time to roam Victoria, but the ferry ride and the bus ride to and from the ferry does take hours. We had good weather so that made for a very pleasant and thoroughly enjoyable day.
The tour was amazing. Ron, our tour guide was awesome!
This was our third visit to Vancouver, Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. But we hadn't been in the area in 10 years. Wow! The Gardens were so much more beautiful than I remembered them from a decade ago.
Josh was great thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Victoria, timing good, he was very informative and funny.
It was great !!
Great tour...the bus picked us up right on time, the driver and guide was great. I would definitely use Viator for future tours.
It was a full day, and a very enjoyable one. A wonderful ferry ride to Victoria Island, which was beautiful. The gardens were magnificent! Jeremy was a real treat to have as our guide. We highly recommend the tour to anyone.
Our tour guide driver Kelly is super great, awesome and knowledgable . She made my vacation worthwhile and really enjoyable. I rate her 10/10.
A full days trip can usually be exhausting, however, from the time we boarded the bus, our driver, Kelly regaled us with histories, facts, and personal anecdotes that made the trip easy. Butchart Gardens was Fantastic! Very easy to take in in about an hour and a half but with beautiful floral displays around every turn. Our late afternoon in Victoria topped off a great day as we enjoyed a great dinner at Bard and Banker.
This was an awesome tour - from the minute they picked us up from when they dropped us off! I'd highly recommend anyone to take this incredible tour and with so many good things, I have to say the float plane was one of the best! The guide was very nice and knowledgeable as well. Fun time!
Pickup from and delivery back to the hotel was flawless. We had been to Butchart Gardens in June many years ago, but did not know what to expect in early October. It was beautiful, and well worth the trip.
All six people in our party thoroughly enjoyed our trip on September 23rd. to Victoria and Butchart Gardens with Viator. Our bus driver/guide was wonderful, and went out of his way to make our day most enjoyable. We will certainly recommend Viator tours to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely day
