Elizabeth was super nice, knowledgeable and fun. We took a beautiful hike through old growth forests with a creek running through it to Hatley Castle and the Japanese gardens there. It was a hot day though. So we cooled off at the 6 Mile Pub, the oldest in Victoria. Next we were off to a beach that had driftwood art along it, really nice. Then we drove down a narrow winding but gorgeous country road to Goldstream Provincial Park. We Hiked through a tunnel and up a rugged path to Niagara Falls. Gorgeous park wonderful waterfalls. Last stop was a resort overlooking the Pacific where we had a wonderful lunch. We saw an Eagle flying and had a hummingbird hang out by the window. You could see Mt Baker and other huge mountains and the pacific from our table. The views were incredible. I highly recommend EV Tour’s and Elizabeth.

What a beautiful day in Victoria! Our guide, Elizabeth, customized our 5 hour tour to do what me , an architect,and my college aged daughter and outdoor loving partner wanted to visit. We choose a serene forest walk , castle and gardens walk, stopped by the driftwood beach, headed north for a wonderful meal with a great view of the Inlet and topped off the tour with some historic neighborhoods in Victoria. Elizabeth was personal, kind, knowledgable and really crafted the tour to our needs.

After two and a half years we were finally able to take this tour. Elizabeth was a delight to work with in getting us rescheduled time after time due to Covid 19. Elizabeth made a point of coming to meet us as we started our tour. Richard was our guide for the day. He was very accommodating throughout the tour. We had reservations at Butchart Gardens for high tea and he checked to make sure that we were all set for that. We would definitely recommend EV Tours for a full day tour experience.

Wanted to visit Salt Spring Island and there was no question I  wanted Elizabeth to be my guide again. And I wasn't disappointed. Elizabeth had ideas of what to do and see and was flexible to respond to anything I mentioned. Her relaxed and easy manner makes the time fly by. One word sums up the tour: FABULOUS! And in great part because of Elizabeth. Looking for a great tour guide? Choose Elizabeth!
