Taking the V2V was a quick and efficient way to travel. The views were beautiful, the staff were very friendly (Hope was amazing) and it goes directly from downtown Vancouver to Victoria's inner harbour. It was great alternative to driving to the ferry terminals, taking the ferry and the driving to Victoria. I loved the experience with my family, the menu had a nice variety and we were lucky to see seals and porpoises along the way. I would definitely do it again. Thank you for the great experience.

Direct. No hassles. Glad we chose V2V. Comfortable ride going from the heart of Victoria right to the Vancouver waterfront. Certainly a time efficient way of doing the journey.

We decided to stop off, first in Victoria then in Vancouver City on our way back to the UK... but how to get between the two?? The main ferry terminals on the island and the mainland are a fair drive away - we didn't have a car anyway, so we were pleased to stumble across V2V which would take us from the heart of one city to the centre of the other. The whole booking process was simplicity itself, the staff were friendly and professional and the journey was smooth and comfortable - we took some amazing photos as we went, none of which would have been possible from a plane... Given this service and the convenience, am not sure why anyone would choose to fly.... EXCELLENT!

So what started off and appeared to be a good service slowly slowly turned into a complete debacle! Our 8.00 am ferry was eventually cancelled at 11.30 am and what followed was nothing more than a disorganised display of shambolic performance. They have three travel categories but the only one they cared about was their royal travellers for anyone else it was a free for all! So after cancelling the boat they chartered an aircraft for 15 passengers only, no order of priority, age travel arrangements or anything, those who shouted the loudest got in regardless, for the rest of us a bus ferry and bus, so very disappointing and very poorly managed!

Hi Sharon & Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear about your experience with us. This was the first time this season we have had such a last minute sailing cancellation due to unexpected circumstances. With it being last minute, finding alternate transportation that was the same for everyone did prove difficult. We are always striving to improve, and will be looking at ways to mitigate the inconvenience to our guests going forward. We appreciate your feedback. Regards, David Aboud V2V Guest Experience
