    We had a wonderful day on tour, and found Nathan to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. All of his tips and recommendations were very helpful in making the most of our day.

    Bobby was a great tour guide! We were able to make an early ferry which allowed us more time at the Gardens. They were absolutely beautiful and Vancouver Island was perfect! All in all we had ample time to do everything we wanted to do. At Victoria, we just did not have a plan so we walked around so have a plan.

    We had a great time visiting Butchart Gardens and Victoria. As noted before it is a long day but well worth the trip. The Ferry ride is relaxing. Our tour guide Bobby W. (Gold Bus 200) was informative and funny.

    Tour guide was great. He is funny and friendly. We couldn't have enjoyed without his knowledge and sense of humour. Garden is ok, I have seen better gardens in Europe. One of the Overrated attractions.

    The gardens were better than we could imagine. Did not see the purpose of Victoria? We went down a street look at this place to eat left and right and then drop off away from food places by BC museum. And rushed for time..

    Thanks to Driver Dan for taking us on a great trip to Vancouver Island. We learned a LOT on the rides to/from the Island, the Butchart Gardens, and Victoria! Lots of jokes too - some corny, some hilarious. You’ll enjoy this trip.

    I got this tour for my relatives visiting from outside of Canada. Even though they couldn't understand much English to truly benefit from a guided tour, they quite enjoyed their time in Victoria and Butchart Gardens. It was a memorable trip and I am glad that I booked them on this tour. Everything went smoothly and as expected!

    Good but short

    The start of the trip was not good as we had to wait with the kids on the street for half an hour due to the late bus arrival from the communicated time. The guide Rick was an informative guy and professional. The time on the garden (2 hrs) is not enough and we had to do things with rush specially we have kids and they would normally slow you down. The time in the city center (1.5 hrs) was also quick and passed quickly.

    Amazing Gardens and taste of Victoria

    Our driver Keith was very informative on the history and development of Vancouver. The tour bus was spacious and comfortable as you will spend lots of time on it. The Butchart Gardens are a must see, just wish we had more than 2 hours. The stop at Victoria was great, but our time was very limited. Not enough to really explore just time to take some pictures and a quick snack.
