What can I say that has not been said already? Elizabeth! Wow you were an amazing impromptu tour guide. Last minute we booked a private Victoria BC tour and you pulled out all the bells and whistles. Took us to some of the most amazing and beautiful places in the area. Offered to take our photos and made sure we had everything we needed! Thank you for the laughs and fun!

Sensational day trip to Saltspring with Elizabeth - owner of E.V. Tours. She started us downtown and drove us in a comfortable small bus where we could get to know the rest of the group, then the adventures began. We listened to music, took in the Saltspring market, ate excellent food and enjoyed much that Ganges and Fulford had to offer. Definitely worth the trip, and next time, we'll bring our kids.

We had a wonderful time with Chris as our guide. My whole family wished we had more time in Victoria so we could do more tours with Chris. Outside of my mom, the rest of the family has traveled many places around the world and have been on our fair share of day tours and hired private guides. Chris was marvelous and one of the best! He was helpful, kind, knowledgeable, interesting, and worked so well with my mother's mobility issues. When she needed a bathroom stop, he made sure to find a comfortable, clean, and accessible bathroom for my mom. By the end of the first day, he felt like part of our family and we were so happy he was available for an additional day of guiding us around. Our first day went smoothly, despite the rain in the morning. Chris suggested we do something else before the gardens since it was a heavy rain at the time and then we went to the gardens after the rain and walked around a bit before a delicious lunch in the nicely appointed dining room. The owner Elizabeth booked a scooter for my mom to use at Buchart Gardens. My mom loved the gardens and could not have done it without a scooter. This allowed everyone to enjoy the gardens and my mom to have freedom to go at her own pace and not the pace of someone pushing her. If we ever plan to get back to Victoria, we will contact EV Tours first thing for a tour booking and will be requesting Chris. Please keep him as a guide! :-)
