Key to the city of Victoria!!

Linda treated us to an extensive tour of Victoria. We had a wonderful time enjoying all the history and views she shared with us. At Buchart Gardens she collected a scooter for me and helped with reservations for afternoon tea. The gardens were amazing!!! She even answered questions after the tour for a wonderful dessert. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone,

See All That Victoria Has to Offer in a Half Day!

Linda was a great tour guide and even messaged us before we arrived to welcome us and share some valuable information! We had a very memorable tour of Victoria. Linda was waiting for us at the ferry terminal with a sign when we arrived and dropped us back on time for boarding. We traveled in a comfortable and spacious transit van as she shared historical facts along the way. We enjoyed seeing the Butchart Gardens, various historic landmarks, Fisherman's Wharf, Beacon Hill Park, Craigdarroch Castle, and Chinatown. We also had a lovely lunch and ice cream at the gardens and got some nice souvenirs from the gift shop. I would highly recommend this tour; it was truly an unforgettable experience. I hope to return to Victoria again!

Great Day in Victoria

Linda picked us up promptly at cruise ship even though we were delayed getting off Vsl. Took scenic route to Butchart Gardens, always conversing with us with questions answered, so personably. Drove through Victoria, stopped at Craiggarroch Castle, to scenic overlook, along water front and downtown. I would highly recommend this tour. Comfortable vehicle, just a great experience
Response from Host, Jul 2022
