Confusion in the beginning. The people in charge at the tour signup directed us to the bus. The bus driver took our ticket and told us that was all we needed for the tour. After boarding the bus - we still questioned where the rest of our tickets were to any of the attractions, so we got off the bus - questioned the girl that gave us the ticket and she realized she gave us the wrong ticket. Finally, we connected with our small group in the Mercedes Van and we were off on a wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Chris, was born and raised on the Island and gave us great information and stories about the Island and growing up there. Loved the places he took us and the picnic lunch from the Empress Hotel. We were on our own at the Butchart Gardens which was nice because we wanted to go at our own pace and take photos. We asked him for a dinner recommendation and after giving us several we ended up having him drop us off at The Irish Times - we loved the fish and chips and selection of beer. We watched the World Cup and felt like we were at a party. Everything we did was a must see adventure. It was a very full day just make sure you get on the right bus.

We had an amazing experience with our guide Dave. Very knowledgeable, friendly willing to go the extra mile kinda guy. My wife and I just enjoyed his company along with a father daughter pair from Ontario, CA. The accommodation was fantastic. We did the Distillers tour in Sidney, BC and was overwhelmed by the great selection of booze. We enjoyed the tasting of various kinds of vodka, whisky etc. Then Dave serve us lunch with the Tea at the Empress lunchbox probable the best lunchbox I ever had in my life.Truly we were blessed with great weather and company in Sidney by the sea part of the tour. I was encourage to know a lot of folks do retire in this quiet picturesque paradise by the sea. We did our tour on a Sunday morning so there was no traffic at all. Dave took us to the scenic route to Butchart Gardens and we took the Wine and Country wine tasting which I highly recommended. Prices for topnotch wine were reasonable.Overall the trip was a great way to start our 7 days in Victoria, BC.

Exceeded expectations. Excellent Mercedes van used to transport customers. The driver/guide was Spence. He knew the area well and had many interesting stories to tell. His timing was exquisite as we managed to avoid large crowds and traffic. The box lunch was from the Fairmont Empress Hotel, a real treat for the eyes and taste buds. Highly recommended. Ask if Spence is the guide for your tour.

This tour with CVS was everything we could have expected. Chris Nelson was a fantastic guide. As a local who was born in Victoria he knew it's history like the back of his own hand. Our small van was able to travel through the small streets of the city and was very comfortable for the longer rides.

We had a good time on this tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We saw lots of things we wouldn't have been able to see by ourselves in just one day. The lunch at noon provided by the Fairmont Empress Hotel was delicious. I would highly recommend this tour.

We loved our Victoria in One Day sightseeing tour!! Our guide, Chris, was sooooo knowledgeable and we could never have seen all the sights he showed us on our own. We would definitely recommend Viator!!

We enjoyed this tour. However, we were expecting tea at Buschart Gardens. We ended up touring a distillery and having lunch there. It was an interesting tour, but since we had our young daughter with us it wasn't really appropriate for her. We also had trouble hearing the driver after he turned on the air conditioner on the bus. We were allowed 1 1/2 hours for Buschart Gardens which was a quick visit.

A great full day trip!!!!!
