This was my favorite among all the places we visited Canada! The tour guide made our experience memorable. She was a bubbly, lovely young lady! There were only 8 of us in the van, and each one was so friendly! We had a fun day! Thank you!

The bus tour from Vancouver to Victoria was worth the time and price. The tour bus picked us up at our hotel and rode the ferry over with us to Victoria. The ferry ride was enjoyable with provisions to eat, sit inside or outside. Both places had places to enjoy the scenery. Victoria was quaint with nice,shops,good food. and interesting places to see. Butchart Gardens were beautiful. had ample time to see the garden. would highly recommend the trip to anyone. Jennie, B'ham,Ala.
