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.

Brian was an excellent tour guide. We really liked the small bus instead of the large group. It was one of the best tours we've had on Viator.

This is a wonderful way to see Victoria and the surrounding area. Our guide pointed out neighborhoods in Victoria and surrounding areas. Saw Chinatown, Beacon Hill Park, University of Victoria and many other places. Toured Craigdarroch Castle and then toured a distillery in Sidney. While there we had a delightful lunch or tea from the Empress Hotel. We then did a wine tasting at Church and State Winery before going to Butchart Gardens. We had plenty of time to walk through and enjoy the Gardens before heading back to Victoria.
