We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Ian was very knowledgeable about everything on the tour, had a great sense of humor and truly made the trip more enjoyable. Victoria is a beautiful city, and the Butchart Gardens are truly amazing. It was the perfect way to spend our limited time in the area. It was a great day!

A great introduction to Vancouver. Our driver showed us all places of interest and explained the history. We had time to stop and take photos in Stanley Park and time to explore Granville Island.

Evening bus tour of the city of Vancouver was pleasant and well narrated. We took a similar tour during the day and enjoyed the Erving tour more.

Brilliant trip to Victoria. Novel and exciting with great views, wish we could do it again

It was breathtaking to see so many varieties of plants and the array of colour
