  • Highly recommend. One of the most enjoyable tour I've been on. My tour guide John is wonderful, very caring, went above and beyond what's expected of him. The itinerary is perfect, very enjoyable, we have enough time to enjoy the scenery, never feel rush. The Victoria portion is also wonderful, Butchart Gardens is breathtakingly beautiful in the spring when tulips and cherry blossom bloom, one of the best gardens in the world. The half day tour of Vancouver is just as wonderful, tour guide took us to all the places we should see like Granville Island and Stanley Park, let us shop in beautiful Gastown and even took us a Chinese restaurant where we all had delicious lunch. We even get to enjoy a walk through Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Chinatown. Overall, one of my best trips ever and I wish everyone can experience the beauty of Canada just the way it is. Take this tour and you will be very happy. Also if you can, upgrade your hotels, it will enhance your experience.
