We were finishing up the weekend in Vancouver after a week long Alaska cruise. We didn't have a rental car but still wanted to see the area. The trip was well organized and the guides were very knowledgeable. The day was planned to maximize our day and we had plenty of time to enjoy the sights. We highly recommend this trip.

The visit to Victoria and the gardens was quite nice but getting there took very long! Be prepared to rest the next day!

Trip could even be better if pick-up time was earlier. We were picked-up at the hotel 0835 for the 1100 ferry trip

This was a very good way to tour the gardens. We did not have to think about getting on an off the island. We had gotten sick while being on the ship and it was nice to have things taken care of for us. The gardens and Victoria was lovely. We had ample time to explore the town and do some shopping and lunch.
