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.

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

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