We had a nice ferry ride over and sat in the bow area of the ferry and had a good buffet breakfast. Butchart gardens is beautiful. We then checked into the Empress hotel, which is a grand old hotel and huge. We had a geat room. We explored Chinatown and a nice dinner a Finn's on the water, Next day we went to the Royal British museum, which had great exhibits of the native people of Canada. Then we did a Bose electric boat ride to explore the channel in downtown Victoria. Ask for Buz for your captain. He is a wealth of information on the area of Victoria, as he grew up there and had lots of stories from his childhood to adulthood growing up on the water. Then my husband got to sit in the co-pilot seat on the seaplane home. What a trip. La Vacanza Travel took care of everything and it went so smoothly. Highly recommend this tour. Bchristian663 13-Oct-2016 This was an awesome tour - from the minute they picked us up from when they dropped us off! I'd highly recommend anyone to take this incredible tour and with so many good things, I have to say the float plane was one of the best! The guide was very nice and knowledgeable as well. Fun time!
