We had a fabulous tour to Victoria with Landsea. Our driver was fantastic her name just slips my mind atm. Picked us up from the hotel on time. She gave us all the info and lots of tips for things to see and do with our free time in town. Everyone on the bus was on time each time which made for a very pleasant tour. Lunch in Chinatown was great and the Butchart gardens are just amazing. Highly recommended.

Bus pick up at the hotel on time. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Enjoyed the ride and the narratives. The ferry crossing was great and again the guide gave very good advice which was helpful to get the max out of the trip. Saw a couple of whales on the ferry's which was a bonus. The trip to Victoria was interesting and enhanced by the guides comments. We opted to walk around and explore the city on our own.
The bus pick up at the statute of Captain Cook was convenient and we departed for Butchart Gardens on time. Seeing the gardens in their full splendor exceeded our expectations. Such a beautiful place! We took in all the great sights with joy. It was really better than we had imagined.
On our return trip we did have a bite to eat in the ferry. There was a line in the restaurant but we managed to get a table and enjoyed our dinner. The bus ride back to Vancouver was easy and we got back to our hotel after a very satisfying trip.
We certainly can recommend this tour. It gives value for your money and takes makes a trip from Vancouver to visit Victoria and Butchart gardens a pleasant experience without the hassle of having to organize things yourself.
