The Craigdorroch Castle is a must in Victoria, Canada. The city tour was rather boring. Definitely go to the castle. If you are on a cruise, this combo tour will take up all your time in Victoria. No time for shopping.

Hello,

Thank you for the review we are glad that you enjoyed your tour to Craigdarroch Castle. For the city tour part we are sorry that you found it to be boring. The combo tour is a jam-packed day if you are off a cruise and only have a few hours in a city. We do give guests the option to do the combo tour activities on different days if they will be in town for longer than one day. Thank you for the review we hope to see you again one day on one of our other tours!

Bus was on time, clean & in good repair; driver Adrian Sly was courteous, professional and funny as he safely drove us out of Victoria to the attractions, pointing out historical locations and setting the times and process for reuniting with the tour. Highly recommend CVS and Mr Sly!!

I took the tour from downtown to Butchart Gardens and back. It was worth the price of the tour, I got to see a bit of Victoria on my short stay here.

I believe our driver or tour guide was Sophie (I could be wrong). We ended up taking a different route then normal. We ended up seeing a bit of the old town which was great and a bit of Chinatown which was awesome as it was one my list.

She was very knowledgeable about the history of Victoria and also knew little ins and outs. Very friendly and personable.

We used CVS Tours to get between downtown Victoria and Butchart Gardens (about a 30-minute ride away). The tour included entrance tickets to the gardens. They used a modern, comfortable, full-size tour bus. Our driver, Adrian, provided interesting commentary along the way. It was arranged for us through our hotel concierge. Everything went well and we were pleased with our excursion.

We went on the combo tour, which included a city tour, Butchart Gardens and Craigdarroch Castle. The staff and bus drivers were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to have the option to break the tours up over two separate days, which I recommend because both tours include a city tour (pleasant surprise) so you get information from two different drivers, which can be interesting. The city tours also provide you the opportunity to see or hear about most of Victoria, so if you're traveling without a car, it checks a lot of boxes. The gardens were exceptionally beautiful and well worth a visit. The castle was so-so, but the self-guided tour is short, so I wouldn't take a pass on it. The views from the tower include Mount Baker and the Olympic Peninsula, which was a treat.
