Bus is super clean the our guide, Andy, is very attentive. Learned quite a bit about the history and various facts about the places we visited. Although the commuting is long but is a very memorable experience!

Really good tour! I enjoyed the ferry ride through the Gulf Islands (so pretty) and went to the shops (Munro Books) and the Museum on Government Street. The highlight was the Butchart Gardens Christmas lights which were beautiful! I really enjoyed the tour and the fact we had free time to explore how we wanted to. Andy was a great tour guide - letting us know in advance where the washrooms and places to eat would be - things like that just put your mind at ease! He also very kindly dropped me back at my
Airbnb which was nice as it was a late night!
Great Tour

This tour was the best experience of my entire vacation in Vancouver. Our tour guide Gordie was extremely helpful and friendly. He took extra efforts to take me to places which were not even in the package. I am really thankful to him for his gesture.
The best part of the tour is definitely the ferry with beautiful views.
I highly recommend taking this tour.
