What people are saying about Victoria, British Columbia
The garden was beyond belief and very worth the time in getting there. Our bus driver and guide, Shapoor, gave us a wonderful narration of what we were seeing. The bus tour of Victoria was interesting but I would rather have spent the time in the gardens instead of the 2 hours we had in Victoria. The gardens are the star of this tour and 2 hours there is not enough time. The only disappointing part of the day was the terrible suspension of the small bus we were on. It made for a very uncomfortable time on the bus.
I have gone on many tours with Greyline, but never have I had a guide as intelligent, articulate, or entertaining as Alex. He never stopped giving us interesting information about whatever was just outside the window. His vocabulary and diction (including word choice) was far above any other guide we encountered on our cruise/land trip. My only criticism is that I wish we had had more time to spend in Butchart Gardens.
Everything about the tour itself was great. Our guide was knowledgeable as well as personable. The bus was clean and comfortable. My only criticism is that the transport for picking up at the hotel to meet the tour bus was very poorly organized and confusing. Our driver did not have explicit information on passengers nor any contact info which caused confusion and delay.
We took the afternoon Tour and saw an amazing number of animals: eagles, seals, otters, sea lions and we were lucky to see a lot of whales. High speed boat, quit comfortabele, we were with only 8 people. Our guide was a marine biologist with lots of expertise who Made our Tour even more enjoyable. I highly recommand this Tour, it is truly unforgettable!!
A really interesting day. The guide was knowledgeable and able to answer all questions. A really great introduction to Vancouver Island and Victoria and just enough time to explore Buchart Gardens.
