We booked this trip to avoid uncertainty of getting to the ferry in time. The trip was well planned, the driver very friendly and professional. He was also pretty good as a travel guide, which is not easy to do while driving. The only thing I would've done differently was to have less time in the garden and more in the town center. The garden is beautiful but the town has more interesting places to see. Otherwise, the tour definitely met our expectations.

Personable driver able to answer most questions Lightly loaded new bus was very comfortable, even for my 6’8” frame Would have liked more time at Bouchard Gardens as there is a lot to see. Ferry ride was a bonus with great inter island scenery and wildlife including whales enroute.

Excellent.

Guide was friendly, making the long ride lively & interesting. Shared plenty of information pertaining to Victoria, Vancouver & best time to visit the Garden. Thanks very much.

Better than N.Y. Botanical Garden

OK N.Y. has weather issues but this garden is breathtaking in its planning and scope
