Vancouver Island & Victoria Day trip
Ralph_H, 10-08-2022
We took the BC fairy to Vancouver Island to tour Butchart Gardens and then went on to Victoria and had lunch at the Steamship Bar & Grill as suggested by Erick. He was a great tour guide. Lots of facts, figures and a whole lot better d laughs.
Would Recommend!!

Private Tours Rock

The ferry ride was relaxing and got to see Orca’s to boot. The trip to Butchart Gardens was great to get a grasp of the island. Our guide was full of great facts about the island and Gardens. The free time in Victoria was enhanced by our guides (Kyle) suggestions on what to see and the path to take. This was an all around great experience and quite happy that we did the private tour since it afforded much flexibility
Victoria tour from Vancouver super

Erich was fun and knowledgable, attentive to our needs, always pointing things out as we traveled to the next destination. He was always punctual but flexible. Highly recommend.
