Great tour. Very organised and professional. Driver Charlie was attentive and helpful and Tour Guide Sophie was very informative. I enjoyed her fun facts about Vancouver as well as the places we were visiting. She was also clear about her expectations which ran the tour very smoothly. Victoria had great architecture and just a pretty, vibrant yet relaxed city. The Butchart Garden was a sight to behold! This tour is a ‘must do’!!
