    Since we were only ashore for a short time, we decided we'd need help finding our way around, Richard gave us the most interesting and in depth history of Victoria, while showing us all the beautiful city. Can't thank you enough!

    Bonnie does an excellent job at blending historical and culinary knowledge. The stories are well spun and come together nicely. We learned about some hard-to-find spots, tried new food, and went back the next day for chili chocolate and a cronut.

    An incredible flight over Victoria and just very cool trip with partners from Harbourfront Wealth. Beautiful sunny day and truly remarkable the landing, felt like any large plane landing on runway as opposed to water.

    It was a very enjoyable tour to Victoria, great tour with Felix (a very nice tour leader from Ctour)! The tour arrangement is well organized. I got to see so much beautiful scenery and learnt a lot of interesting historical facts in one of the oldest Chinatown in the world. The Butchart Gardens is worth a visit.

    What a great tour provided by Darwin!
    Picked up at the cruise port and escorted through the city before it awoke as once things opened up it would be crowded and inaccessible.
    Darwin had us at Butchart Gardens before all the big buses, and walked us in to give us pointers on the best way to tour around!
    Afterwards, we were treated to a additional city tour of some very interesting and historical sights, added bonuses were both of the areas castles!
    Highly recommend this tour and Darwin knows how to give the best experience!

    Richard was very nice and gave great info. He did stop twice but with the itinerary on here thought we’d be stopping more so we could get out to take pictures. Got zero of parliament and the Empress because it was a busy street and couldn’t stop and a lot of my other pics just have a partial car window if anything. It’s $150 us or $200 Canadian not $120 like TripAdvisor said as the rate changes due to exchange. $300 if you want to do butchart gardens plus entry fee.

    Butchart Gardens and the Ferry Ride are amazing! Andrew is very knowledgeable and he was speaking in 3 languages the whole trip. Overall a great day-trip experience. We highly recommend Andrew.

    We loved our tour with Mark -- he picked us up promptly from the cruise terminal at the specified time. He was very patient, informative, and wise to stop at Beacon Hill Park to let the kids run around and get their wiggles out. Mark even brought bird feed that he shared with the children to feed the peacocks. He showed us the sights of Victoria (Fisherman's Wharf, Beacon Hill Park, Craigdarroch Castle) on our way to Butchart Gardens, then let us peruse the gardens at our leisure before picking us up and showing us Chinatown/Fan Tan Alley. We concluded our tour with a special request -- a stop for Beaver Tails -- and Mark was happy to comply. We enjoyed that the tour was customized and more cost-effective than if we had done a port excursion through the cruise line: win-win! Thank you Mark!

    Perfect day even in the rain. Our van driver arrived on time to pick us up at the hotel. Drove us to the ferry and over to Victoria Island. Then off to the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen. 55 acres of manicured gardens that are so well maintained. After walking the gardens we were off to the city and learned all about Victoria and its rich history. Had lunch at Milestones which was quite good. Our driver was great and made sure we were comfortable all day.

    Wow! What an amazing day we all had with Darwin...
    We where a party of 4 and couldn’t fault any part of the day...
    His tour is well planned out so we missed all the crowds so where able to see everything comfortably. His knowledge of the area is fantastic and he was able to answer all our questions.
    Darwin and his tour are so good we are going back to victoria next July on the Queen Elizabeth cruise ship and hoping to book him again.

    We wanted to go to bath and body works shop as we don’t have one in the uk and he even managed to fit that into our day without missing out any of our tour!
    Darwin you are simply the best guide in victoria
    Thank you for a great day

    Due to the Alaska Cruise we were on, and arrival was at 6pm on Saturday, August 24th, I recited a late communication with our guide, of his no-show, due to a family emergency. He mentioned about a replacement "could" be sent; it did not occur, as we waited until 8pm. I communicated with the agency the following day, tried to talk to them yesterday, and said I would talk to them next week, as we were with friends in Washington. I received communication today of our request to receive a refund, but they asked me to inform Trip Advisor of our situation, and appeal to you.

    Our guide Darwin was extremely pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. We had booked just a 1 hour tour and it was late afternoon when the traffic was busy however, our guide Darwin was magical in getting us around town to the main attractions and other points of interest. We highly recommend Surfside Adventure Tours - you won't be disappointed.
