We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. From the commentary as we made our way from our pickup to the ferry. The gardens were superb and the Laurel Inn met our expectations ith clean and tidy facilities, very helpful staff and a brilliant view from our room. we were a littlle apprehensive about the float plane flight back, but it,also, was thrilling. The only disappointment was that as we were in Vancouver and paid in Canadian dollars with our cash currency card, we found later when the card ran out of money, that the amount quoted in Canadian dollars was converted to U.S dollars, so cost us more and depleted the card sooner than it should have. Please be aware of this.

Enjoyable 2 day tour. Most of the people on the your opted for a day trip and I was the only one staying overnight. The float plane return was really good. Tour guide on the first day was really good. I was on my own the second day.

Well worth it for the additional time to explore Victoria, a highlight of our BC trip, as was the float plane ride back to Vancouver. Highly recommended!

The two-day Victoria trip was very enjoyable. There wasn't much guided tour in this package as the tour guide is basically the driver driving us to the pier for the bus to get on the ferry to Victoria. Then he drove us to Butchart Garden where we could just tour around the place ourselves. We were then dropped off at our hotel for checking in and the rest of the first day and the next day were all our free times. The hotel chosen for us is very good, very good service and the room is very nice. The airplane experience was fantastic. The tour was very costy but worth to do it.

The gardens were amazing. We definitely recommend the overnight tour. 2 hours in Victoria is not enough time and it's a long ride back to Vancouver via the shuttle. We enjoyed the float plane ride back, so much to see.

This trip was wonderful! The tour guides were friendly, informative and on time. Everything went smoothly and as advertised, just as in past Viator tours we've taken. The hotel we stayed at was beautiful and the city was easily accessible by walking. We could have stayed at the Empress but chose the Inn at Laurel Point and were very happy with the choice. We would highly recommend it.

Although I enjoyed the trip, there were significant issues that made me feel that this trip was not worth the significant expense... On the positive...the trip was fairly well organized and as advertised. Down sides...van picking us up at the hotel was 30 minutes late. The driver was curt and unfriendly. He took us to our tour guide who was friendly but who clearly was not a native English speaker. He was not aware or familiar with the fact that we were spending the night... most of the guests were doing the day trip. Eventually, he figured it out and got our vouchers. The hotel was sub standard. After three room switches and numerous phone calls, it became clear that the hotel had an upgraded wing... We decided to pay extra for this... It would have been helpful had we known. The difference was huge. Almost as though they were two separate hotels. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent for breakfast, although not inexpensive . Lastly, when we showed up for our float plane,there was fog and planes were being cancelled. I had triple checked on this prior to booking and during the trip as we needed to catch our cross country flight home. I had been told that there was no problem and no need for concern. This was not the case... When I called the vendor to report that the flight plane might be cancelled, I was told that this was not their problem. Luckily, the flight did take off and we got home to the east coast. When I return to Victoria, I will not take this tour.

VIATOR says: Hotel pick-up and drop-off. There was no drop-off for us. There was nobody waiting for us at the plane terminal, there was no shuttle. We really feel very unsatisfied because of this. And there are more people who have had the same problem.
